the RJ Engagement Experience

rachel jordan photography family


Hello! We're Rachel & Max. When we're not running our wedding photography & videography business you can find us chasing around our toddler, Emily! I love light and the beauty of the area around me and Max sees the epic and cinematic nature of the PNW.

We've heard from a number of brides who said something like "OMG I booked a photographer and after our engagement session I realized we're not a good fit for each other. But now I am stuck in a contract with them."  I've always felt so bad for these sweet brides because photography and videography is not something you want to be unhappy with on your wedding day!  

That's why we've decided to create a system that allows us to work together before you have to make that big decision of booking your photo & video team. I am proud to say 90% of brides who have gone through this system, have booked us for their wedding. The difference is, this time they KNOW for sure that they won't be disappointed on their wedding day!! 

Kind words from past clients

Rachel was wonderful to work with. She is a lot of fun and really helped us get past that first initial awkward feeling at the beginning. It was amazing to be able to work with her in a personal photo shoot. She does a wonderful job of making you feel comfortable.

the process

I am a natural, candid photographer (like a paparazzi, without the big ugly flash and way less pushy) and Max is a cinematic videographer. We focus on documenting YOU. Who you are, what you enjoy together, the little quirks that make your love strong.

The very first step to planning your engagement experience is to schedule a phone call so we can get to know you. This is a 15 minute meet & greet to learn more about what your visions are for your photos and video.

After we chat on the phone I will follow up with you in an email and send over what's included in the engagement session as well as an online booking form for the shoot. You will also receive a complimentary style guide that will walk you through choosing your outfits! 

During the session we will work to make you feel as laid back and comfortable as possible. Think of it as, the two of you hanging out together, cuddling, laughing, playing, and having a special romantic time each other. We'll direct you so you don't feel awkward, and capture some candid moments as you relax.

After the session we will set up an online video meeting to go over your images, pick out your free goodies, as well as answer any of your questions you have about our wedding packages. You will be offered the opportunity to purchase any additional products or digitals from your session if you'd like. When you choose us for your wedding, the entire engagement session gallery and full engagement video is gifted to you! 

What's included


A $100 refundable deposit is required to secure your time slot

You are not required to purchase anything, but you will be offered the opportunity to purchase your full session gallery. 

All sales/credits/refunds will be determined at reveal session.


Thank you so much for considering us to be a part of your beautiful wedding day! If you’re interested in working with us, the next step is to set up a time to chat and to reserve your session time!
