We are Jordan and Cassie Timpy and we tell incredible stories.
We are passionate visual storytellers who will travel to the ends of the earth to capture life’s joys and sorrows. We create digital stories that evoke emotion and positive change through the strategic mixture of video, photos, text, audio narration and/or music. Professionally-trained photojournalists and documentarians, we both hold degrees in Visual Communication from one of the nation’s top journalism schools — The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Media and Journalism. This is also where we met and fell in love.
We were married in 2013 by way of a surprise wedding that we planned for four months without telling a soul. It was an intimate wedding with only our immediate families, and it was one of the best days of our lives.
On top of sharing our love of photography, videography and storytelling, we love the outdoors and are passionate about travel.
Basically, we love doing everything together. We work together shooting weddings, brainstorming video projects, and traveling the world to document the work of nonprofits, often using tripods and timers to capture pictures of us together! In 2018, we took a sabbatical in order to thru-hike the entire Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia together — a distance of 2,200 miles. It was an incredible journey that we would do again in a heartbeat. For a blogpost recap of our AT thru-hike, click here.
Jordan Timpy’s first camera was his mother’s Pentax K-1000, which she used for birding. He still hasn’t given it back. Now as a professional photographer and videographer, he has worked with newspapers, magazines and produced short-form documentaries for nonprofits around the world. Jordan worked as Photo Editor at Ranger Rick Jr., a children’s wildlife magazine published by National Wildlife Federation. There he spent two years conceptualizing and researching story ideas, contracting the world’s top wildlife photographers, and arranging and photographing his own photoshoots for the magazine.
Cassie Timpy is an experienced documentary storyteller specializing in photography and videography, but she is also skilled in graphic design, writing, business and Spanish. She has worked for niche arts and culture magazines, local newspapers, nonprofits from all over world, the federal government, various corporate clients, brides, families, and herself. Cassie has traveled to third-world countries to serve using her documentary skills including Haiti after its devastating earthquake where she lived for three months despite aftershocks, the cholera epidemic, Hurricane Tomas and civil unrest following the 2010 presidential election. Cassie also worked in Washington, D.C. as a Video Producer for the Federal Aviation Administration, where she created original visual content (videos and graphics) for an official training course developed for air traffic safety personnel.
In 2015, we took a leap of faith and left our desk jobs behind.
We donated an entire year of our time and talent to people, causes and organizations around the world. We called it our “missional year” and in that time we produced 60 videos for 31 organizations in 10 countries.
