Review Andrew Jordan Photography (Grooms Are People Too) A+++++

Recommended Posts

I feel so privileged to be doing this review on BDW since Iâ€m Andrewâ€s first bride from this forum. Heâ€s an established wedding photographer in Cleveland, OH, with a handful of DWs under his belt. Now that his family has a house in Puerto Morelos, heâ€s looking to grow his business to include the Riviera Maya. We feel like we stumbled upon such a gem with Andrew. If you havenâ€t already peeked at our pro pics then now's your chance!!

I know Iâ€m biased because theyâ€re my pictures, but the comments weâ€ve been getting from other people are things like, “Wow, you look like you belong in a magazine!†and “You need to submit those to the dress designer!†By hiring Andrew, we knew weâ€d walk away with one-of-a-kind pictures, though even we were caught off guard at just how great ours turned out. Thereâ€s absolutely nothing cookie-cutter or ordinary about them.


To start, we found each other on this forum, and as soon as DH and I looked at his online portfolio, we knew we wanted to hire him. His style is unique, creative, casual (not overly processed), and beautiful!


Having good chemistry with your photographer is so important, and we clicked from the start. Heâ€s easy to work with and talk to, is great at giving direction, is professional, confident, and really makes you feel like youâ€re the only couple heâ€s working with. Even when we communicate through just email or on the phone, I feel like weâ€ve got his attention 100%. Youâ€d never know heâ€s got a booked schedule.


Prior to the wedding he could not have been more helpful. He took a couple trips down there between when we booked him and our wedding, and each time he offered to scope out local restaurants for our group and great locations for our day-after shoot. He even did a site visit to the resort to check it out for us since we were going down site-unseen.


Once we were all in Mexico, he came by Azul Beach a few days before the wedding so we could meet and walk through the resort together. The night before the wedding we took our guests into Puerto Morelos for dinner, and as luck would have it, Andrew happened to be having dinner there too! With no prompting from us he picked up his camera and started shooting. We ended up with great pictures of us wrestling Nacho Libre-style in the restaurant (that was the theme of the restaurant)! Priceless!


The day of the wedding he showed up an hour before I even started my hair and makeup and stayed until our reception ended. He got the most amazing pictures and yet we never even knew he was there! Our family kept complimenting us on how well he gelled with our group. We did give him a list of group shots we wanted taken, but other than that we let him do his thing. And weâ€re glad we did because we never could have dreamed up what he came up with!

Our package also included a shoot the day after the wedding. Andrew picked us up in a car heâ€d rented and drove us all over Puerto Morelos, both in town and on remote stretches of beach. He has such a creative eye and the pictures from that day are breathtaking!


Our proofs were ready just a few days after we got back from Mexico. Our package also included a coffee table book, and that proof was ready about a week after the online proofs were up. He sent us hi-res images of all our photos, and all this within 3 weeks of our wedding! He's really gone above and beyond to make sure we're happy and even retouched some photos for me beyond the standard post-production retouches.


Thank you, Andrew, for being the best wedding-related decision we made!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
