I'm a photographer based in Moorestown, New Jersey, specializing in weddings, engagements, maternity, and family portraits. I take a candid and lifestyle approach when shooting, utilizing natural light and looking for those moments when my subjects are laughing rather than posing.


I've spent years in the photography world - first as a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology and later in magazine publishing and photo editing. Now, I'm happy to have found a home behind the camera and grateful to be doing what I love full time - capturing the moments in life that matter most.


I was married in the Spring of 2016 and I know wedding planning is both really fun and super stressful, and that the moment you see your photos is almost as special as the one when you walk down the aisle. That’s why I make it a goal to be the easiest vendor you’ll hire, and why I work hard to capture images that will bring tears of joy to your eyes. A wedding is one day, but your photos are forever. Capturing those once-in-a-lifetime moments is a responsibility that, as a photographer and a newlywed, I take very seriously.


When I’m not photographing a wedding or editing images from a recent shoot, you’re most likely to find me chasing around my one year son, watching reruns of Friends, drinking wine, decorating my home and cooking a fancy dinner with my husband.


Thanks for visiting my website! I can't wait to work with you. Susan
