Jordan was the first Coterie client ever. She sent us an email before we even had an actual website and email address. It went to our personal email accounts. We had no work online, no facebook page, nothing. All we had was the word of the photographers she had inquired with.

Back then Coterie was far from fully formed. It was an idea we had where we wanted to make the wedding films that we loved watching. We wanted to bring a west coast vibe to the midwest. We had a name, an idea of our style, and our experience.

Raja was stationed overseas when we met with Jordan for coffee. We didn’t get the chance to meet with him until the day of, since these kids now live in sunny California (lucky). And it was an immediate connection.

We love the film we were able to make for Jordan and Raja. It’s the epitome of what we wanted Coterie to be. It’s so perfectly what we imagined all those months and emails ago.
