Full Description
An initial friendly consultation to talk about your special day in more detail and give us a good chance to get to know each other. I am there to answer any wedding questions not just photography based. I have a good idea from my experience but also having got married only in the last couple of months I will definately  have a few helpful tips for you both. This is usually done via Skype/Facetime or we can meet in person-whichever suits you both. ​ Full Day coverage right from the bridal preparations up until the first dance - my style as previously mentioned is very natural and I just love the candid photos that can be captured at a wedding. My aim is to show your love story of the day creatively and in a way that you and your family with treasure forever.  ​ Every single one of your images will be individually edited and enhanced- I do not use any generic filters/presets. I have my very own vibrant style and become almost obsessed in making sure every picture is a stunning as it can possibly be. ​ All of your images will be uploaded to a personalised password protected online gallery - this gives you the ability to download the images whenever you please and also share them with your friends/family who can also download theirs. ​ A full licence to print/share your hi-resolution images and to distribute them freely-no tie ins forcing you to buy them directly from myself. ​ A fully edited and enhanced 'preview' shot from your day will be put online the following day or two after your wedding and your full collection will be with you inside 3/4 weeks. ​

where do we start?! You were absolutely amazing!!
Jordan where do we start?! You were absolutely amazing!! We had great fun getting to know you on our pre wedding shoot and then you were much more than a photographer on our wedding day - From finding bridesmaid shoes in the chaos in the morning to organising everyone and get the best photos we could have imagined. Cannot recommend you enough! Brilliant communication and just spot on with everything xxx

Jordan couldn't have captured our day any better
We first met Jordan on a sunny day in Roundhay Park where we had our pre wedding shoot. Always smiling he did his best to make us feel at ease and got some fantastic photos at the same time. This made the wedding day so much easier as we knew Jordan and he knew us and what we wanted, and what a day it was. Jordan was there with us in the morning until the sun went down and couldn't have captured our day any better. The day goes quickly but because of Jordan we have lots of memories to remember when we look at our pictures. A really friendly talented person and a pleasure to have with us at our wedding. Thanks again Jordan and I would happily recommend you to everyone who needs to capture a special occasion.

He didn’t feel like just a photographer
Jordan photographed our wedding on the 11th August this year. Right from the very first meeting with him we knew we picked the right photographer. He listened to everything we had to say and had some amazing ideas himself. He didn’t feel like just a photographer, he felt like a friend. Every one at the wedding said how amazing he was as a photographer and as a person. The thing that stood out for me was when the rings were forgotten for the ceremony, without even thinking Jordan offered his own wedding ring for the groom to use! He deserves all the credit he gets. As both a photographer and as a person, he’s worth his weight in gold. Thank you again Jordan for making our day just that little bit more amazing. Love Mr and Mrs Francis x

What is your most memorable wedding?

It sounds like such a cliche but I have been lucky enough that all of my weddings have been memorable in their own way all for good reasons. For this reason it was such a hard question to answer which is why I left it until last. I won't dodge the question though and if I had to choose one it would be one this year where the Brides father was not very well at all and in hospital. The family did not know if he would be able to come until the very morning. He was allowed out of the hospital for only a couple of hours-enough to walk his daughter down the aisle in a wheelchair and mix with the guests for a bit. I kept catching him look at his daughter in such a sweet way and you could just see the love in his eyes. I managed to capture an intimate moment between the two and to this day it is still my favourite photograph I have ever taken because of the sentimental value it holds for the bride and her family.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Vibrant, Relaxed, Fun, Creative and Subtle

What about your business are you most proud of?

I would have to say my relationship with my couples and the guests. I am lucky enough to call a lot of my couples friends and have stayed in touch with them after the big day. I try to be as relaxed and laid back on the day and I often gets comments about how well I fit in with everyone.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Book Calper Photography to photograph your day ;) haha. No I would say my number one tip is quite a common one, it is to make sure you get to enjoy everything about the wedding right from the planning stage up until the whole day. It really does go by so fast and unfortunately a lot of couples spend too much time and emotion on getting everything perfect that they forget to enjoy all of their hard work and take in everything on the happiest day of their lives.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I have seen this at two different weddings now in slightly different forms. A custom made feature that has photographs and other personal memories of family and close friends who are no longer with us or unable to attend the day through poor health. It was a lovely subtle touch. It initiated different conversations which brought up these guests and happy memories related to them.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to start with a very informal chat and like to give the opportunity to meet in person. I find this really beneficial as it gives as chance for us to get to know each other but also I can see how you are as a couple and it will only make the day more natural and comfortable. I am available whenever for any questions, panics, advice or information the couple need leading up to the wedding. Around a week before the big day I like to have a catch up over the phone to go over the final details and make sure everything is set for the day so the couple are not worrying and I am organised. With regards to the actual day, I like to be as laid back and fun as possible and just try to fit in with the whole day. This enables me to get the best and most natural shots. I am the opposite of the stereotypical pushy photographer who bosses around the couple and the guests. This is your day and I just want to capture it in as true a way as possible.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I love photographing the whole wedding day but there are a few moments which are my favourite and in particular I would one of the photos that has the most emotional meaning is the moment the mother/father of the bride first see their daughter in the dress. The reactions here are just priceless. Other than that the moment with both the bride and groom is the first kiss.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I had a couple recently who had seen a photo on Pinterest- it involved a reflection but in a very arty way. It was most definitely challenging but I love it when couples come to me with ideas of their own. In this case we were able to produce something similar and they loved it.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

The first and most important thing I recommend is not to panic or stress if the weather isn't great. The day is far too special for it to be ruined by something as small as rain. From a photography perspective there are so many ways around the wet weather, The main thing is to stay positive and just enjoy the day. I will have to be a little more creative but can totally still get some spectacular portraits as well as the group shots and candid natural shots. In ways it makes my job a little easier as everyone is together so I will get a lot more natural reaction shots. So the number one tip is to embrace it.

Describe how you got into photography.

My love for photography started with a Polaroid camera my parents bought me for my 10th Birthday. I must have cost them so much money with all of the spare films I needed - i used to love taking photos of anything-especially our pet dog. Right from being a teenager and up to this day I have been a bit of a gadget geek and wanted the most up to date thing and constantly research new things or methods. This made my hobby of photography a very expensive one and my friends and family were constantly telling me I do it professionally. So I eventually took the leap and I have never looked back. This really is the best job and i wouldn't want to do anything else. I get to do my hobby every day but to go alongside that I get to be a part of a day that is usually the most special and happy day of a persons life. Moments I capture will hopefully be treasured forever.
