My name is Jordan, but my friends call me Jo or Jojo (or Dinks, but that is a long story for another time, haha!) I am a Southern California based wedding + lifestyle photographer who loves Jesus, my husband, the Jonas Brothers, wine, cheese, Disney, the Dodgers, anything Taylor Swift creates, and traveling.
I do what I do because of my love for Christ. My faith is what fuels me, my passion, and my heart for my couples and clients. This is more than a job to me, and I am so thankful Jesus has put me in this place and led me to meet some of the best people on this planet through this business of mine. I live because of Him so I also live for Him - all glory to Christ.
You may be wondering, "Jordan, how did you come up with your business name?" ... WOW thank you SO much for asking ;) Grace is actually my middle name (but I will respond to it, so it’s ok if you call me that - it happens alllllll the time) and Day is my maiden name… that is how I got the name GraceDay Photography when I was creating this little business of mine during my junior year of college. I have been building and creating with GraceDay Photography for 5 years now and I only get more excited and more passionate about it every. single. day.
I am OBSESSED with the Jonas Brothers… and that is an understatement. I have seen them 20+ times in concert. I have met Nick twice, Joe once, and it is my life goal to now meet Kevin. They are my first loves.
My favorite thing to do when I am home alone is read or binge watch Gilmore Girls or One Tree Hill or Friends, and dance around to Taylor Swift’s whole discography, all while sippin' on some red wine.
I was on Disney Channel! My cousin is a director and he used to do some work for Disney and so he threw me in as an extra in a few music videos (let's just say I have a special place in my heart for Lemonade Mouth and Starstruck ;) and those memories will forever be in the top 5 best moments of my life!
My favorite place in the whole world is The River. I grew up going to a little town in Arizona, just upriver of Needles, CA and it quickly became my happy place. It also holds a special place in my heart because it is where my husband proposed to me on my 22nd birthday!
My voice was used in a Chick Fil A commercial!! Chick Fil A corporate saw one of my raving tweets about a seasonal salad they had and they asked me to be part of a "real fan" campaign they were doing and it was so fun!
I love a good cup of coffee. My go-to Starbucks order is a grande Carmel macchiato with oat milk and an added shot of espresso - or a trenta iced green tea, YUM!
