Vanessa Jordan, Artist & Creative Wedding Photographer
Welcome to my website. I'm Vanessa Jordan, a visual artist and professional photographer, specialising in Wedding Photography & Family Portraits. I am originally from Mayo and now based in Furbo on the edge on Connemara just outside Galway City. I graduated from GMIT, Centre for Creative Arts & Media with a BA (hons) in Fine Art Printmaking in 2007. I am a member of Galway Print Studio where I get to practice my printmaking skills with a great group of artists from all over Connaught. We regularly exhibit our work in Galway, nationwide and in Europe.
I have a huge passion for all things creative, especially photography. I love my job and feel very blessed to have the opportunity to work with couples on one of the most important days of their lives. My inspiration for weddings comes from each couple I meet. No two weddings are the same and I will tell the story of your individual day, capturing all the details and special moments of your celebration.
My photography style is artistic and natural. My approach is relaxed, discreet and unobtrusive so I can capture all the special moments of the day while staying quietly in the background. I like to keep my images simple, timeless and elegant by mixing classic portraiture with informal, candid photography. This allows me to document your day as it unfolds capturing all the details, action and emotions that make up the unique story of your wedding.
My aim is to create a beautiful record of one the most important days of your lives for you to love and treasure always. I work closely with couples expectations to ensure their wedding images reflect their individual style. I have photographed hundreds of weddings over the past seventeen years, that’s a lot of experience! I see every wedding as a creative opportunity to make beautiful art.
