I’m Jordan! On 11.12.13 I walked into a Midwest Courthouse and started Jordan Edens Photography! A Washington native, with a brief midwest dalliance, Jordan Edens Photography is based out of Richland and Kennewick, serving the Tri-Cities and surrounding area with wedding and portrait photography. After getting married in 2016, my husband Dodge came on board as the official IT manager, Finance, and a myriad of other things to keep this business running smoothly! You might even see him at a wedding or two assisting!
In College I studied Graphic Design and Photography and was enamored by the creations that I was able to dream up and put into reality in my designs and photos. I love the people I get to work with and sharing their love and life stories.
WHY I DO WHAT I DO
I'm an introvert through and through, but photography gives me the context to meet and serve people. Each and every client chooses to invest in my work, and in turn I promise to invest in them with my time, with care and attention in each photo, and with kindness and understanding. I do what I do because I love and am fascinated by the connections between people, and want to help with the treasure of memories and milestones.
WHEN I'M NOT PHOTOGRAPHING
Binge watching Harry Potter/Gilmore Girls/Gossip Girl/White Collar/Friends/90s Chick flicks :) I promise I don't just sit in front of the TV all day!
Walking/running and pretending that nature and I get along
Walking through ALL of the aisles of TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Hobby Lobby
Crafting! I LOVE making things!
Spending time with my husband Dodge - Introvertedly :)
Designing! Alongside of my photography business I work as a graphic designer for the Kenmore Team!

Jordan Edens Photography / TRAVEL
"YOU HAVE BRAINS IN YOUR HEAD. YOU HAVE FEET IN YOUR SHOES. YOU CAN STEER YOURSELF ANY DIRECTION YOU CHOOSE. YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN. AND YOU KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW. AND YOU ARE THE GUY WHO’LL DECIDE WHERE TO GO." OH THE PLACES YOU'LL GO.
I don't think it's a mystery that photographers, creatives, and artists alike have an explosive desire to travel. Creation, nature, and the beauty left by those who have gone before draws out and enhances creativity. I have had the privilege of travel, the beginning fire in my soul fueling what I hope brings a lifetime of wanderlust. Growing up in the great state of Washington, beauty was in my backyard. As a college Sophomore, I traveled with my photography class to New York to take the city. Our exploits took us all around the city and gave me a great love for the concrete jungle. My Junior year of college led me to Guatemala in service to a camp full of the most beautiful children bound to wheel chairs. Travel in Guatemala brought culture, and the most vibrant color to my experience. In my senior year of college I spent the semester interning in the beautiful Chicago. Living and working in the city, I captured sunrise to sunset and every beautiful building in between. My travel portfolio is speckled with midwest, and west and a yearning to see more.
Jordan Edens Photography / FEATURES
Working with a number of publications/online presences that were local to the area has allowed for both print and digital publication of my work. Dainty Obsessions, a midwest based wedding magazine and online source published a Jordan Edens Photography couple Mara & Eric in their print magazine and couple Abigail & Stuart on their blog. I started the 509 Bride as an online presence in the Tri-Cities to help brides easily find and connect with wedding vendors and have featured Jordyn & Drew on the blog. I love working alongside of local sources to provide inspiration for future brides AND connect with the amazing couples that I get to work with!
