"Susan is absolutely amazing! She managed to capture every moment and detail from the entire day. We're able to relive our entire wedding day when we look through the photos she took. She helped keep me sane throughout the day too, and made sure I remained comfortable in the 85+ degrees heat. Susan managed to help me in times I didn't even realize I needed help. As soon as she saw me starting to get frazzled about anything, she stepped in and talked me down. She helped keep my bridal party in check and was amazing with all of my family and friends. She even managed to get great shots of my two dogs that were in the wedding as well! I researched many photographers and I firmly believe going with Susan was one of the best decisions my husband and I made, she is extremely responsive and flexible and she truly knows how to make you feel special throughout the entire process. My husband and I will definitely be reaching out to Susan again in the future for a maternity and/or family shoot! Thank you SO much Susan!"
"Susan did an AMAZING job with the photos for my wedding! Before the wedding, she took time to discuss what my husband and I wanted and was able to give us some direction on how we should schedule the big day. On the day of, she was incredibly organized and managed everyone involved (wedding planner, videographer, bridal party, etc.) to get the shots we needed. She helped my husband and I actually pose for the pictures, which was really helpful because we had no idea what would look good. She also got a lot of candid shots throughout the wedding - in the end we saw a nice mix of both posed and candid photos. When we got our photos back, we were blown away. She captured the highlights of our wedding beautifully and we could not be happier! We highly recommend Susan!"
"From the beginning, as we were indecisive about the large list of vendors we needed to find, Susan spent many days on the phone & email with us, walking us through exactly what our day would look like with her behind the camera. Once we chose to go with Susan, she started immediately helping us pick a location and a date for our engagement photos. During our engagement photo session, she was a real person. She made every effort to get to know us as people, and made the experience of getting thousands of pictures taken, feel so natural. The weeks leading up to our wedding were chaotic, but Susan being our photographer gave us one less thing to worry about. Our wedding day was more special than we could have ever imagined, and Susan’s place in it will forever be in our memories. She made the day so easy, and for that she’ll be remembered. We would, have, and will continue to recommend her to every person that we know who is getting married, and we hope to work with her again as celebratory moments take place in our lives down the road. If you work with Susan, we promise, you will have the best wedding photos that will bring you joy for the rest of your lives."
“I met Susan through my sister. My sister hired Susan for her engagement photos, wedding photos, and anniversary photos. When my husband and I got engaged, she was the first person I called. Being that she was reliable, friendly, and so easy to work with; it was an easy choice. Susan also made the commitment to travel to another country with us for our wedding. Although she was the only shooter for our wedding in Mexico, she managed to get every shot we requested and more! She managed our family and friends in the heat with ease and gave us 100%. Our pictures turned out beautiful. Susan is a part of our family now. I would recommend her to anyone, and I plan on hiring her to capture all our life's big events in the future.”
“The wedding day was magical! Susan and her assistant Matthew were very professional. Not in the least obtrusive, but taking extra care that every special photo requested was taken, and capturing every moment of the day. As the bride, there is a great deal you miss of your own wedding, but Susan was able to show me more of the day than I am able to recall. Finally, the quality and creativity of her work is superior, I can almost hear my laugh and see my veil flapping in the wind. Susan is fun and genuine, someone that takes pride in their work, but also celebrates the day with you. At the end of it all, Susan becomes your friend, and she is someone that we will keep in touch with and use in the future to snap our growing family.”
"Choosing Susan as our wedding day photographer was the BEST decision we made. Susan was the first vendor we booked after choosing our venue and was such a big help with creating our 'day of' timeline. For our engagement shoot we were both feeling a little camera shy at first but working with Susan feels like you are working with a close friend. She made us feel so comfortable and we ended up having SO much fun and of course the pictures were stunning. On our wedding day Susan and her team helped keep us on schedule and did a FANTASTIC job of making sure we had all of our 'must have' shots. Susan is so organized and has such a great personality and is truly the best to work with. Our wedding pictures are absolutely amazing, we could not have asked for anything more. Susan is amazing at what she does and goes above and beyond in all aspects! I can't wait to find another opportunity to work with Susan!!"
"Susan was the easiest vendor I booked. Photography was my #1 priority and I knew I needed to find someone who was a professional and a master of photography. I emailed probably over 30 photographers in the area and Susan was very clearly above the rest of them. Susan is a MASTER of her trade, flexible, and almost instantly responds to any emails which makes planning soooo much less stressful. And, did I mention her photos are phenomenal?! For our engagement session, she was super easy to work with, flexible with scheduling, and helped us get comfortable in front of the camera for our big day. She gives great direction, so even if you are worried you might look "awkward," she'll have you laughing to make the photos look natural and candid. On our big day, she had a relatively strict schedule to make sure we got every last photo that we wanted, and because of this we were able to stick to a timeline and ended up with time leftover! All of our photos are beautiful, she is the happiest person on earth, and frankly I would recommend her to every bride who considers herself picky. When you book Susan, you will have NOTHING to worry about, she takes care of it all! Susan, from the bottom of my heart, Ryan and I had the greatest time getting to know you and we are so thankful for your work on our wedding day. THANK YOU for everything you did! We love you so much!"
"My husband and I took our time looking for a wedding photographer because it was one of the most important aspects to us for our wedding. We inquired and read many reviews from all different photographers in the area. We came across Susan and from seeing her work and reading her reviews we knew she was exactly what we were looking for! We booked our engagement session through her back in August 2016 and were hoping from this that we would essentially hire her as our wedding photographer. From the moment we met Susan, we felt like we knew her forever. She is so professional, organized, kind and truly cared about making us happy. ALL of our photos from our engagement session are timeless and capture our relationship perfectly. As for our wedding in May 2018, Susan blew it out of the water! She was AMAZING. She was in constant contact with us via phone and email. Always quick to reply and give new ideas for our first look/photos throughout the day. The timeline she provided was unreal and we have every single picture we wanted and MORE! The whole day was truly a dream and she captured every moment effortlessly. At some points we did not even know she was there and our pictures are stunning. The amount of compliments we have received regarding our wedding photos are endless and that truly speaks to how talented Susan is. When we look through our photos it was like reliving the day all over again. It is so special that we can now do that for the rest of our lives, thanks to Susan! Thank you for everything, Susan!"
“We absolutely loved having Susan as our wedding photographer. Susan not only is incredibly responsive and creative, but will also end up coordinating your whole day by making sure every shot on your list is accomplished. We had a lot of ideas for the shots, and Susan suggested some more as well as some changes that made complete sense. She is extremely responsible and a sweetheart, you will feel as having a friend taking your pictures. Susan has that desired ability of capturing emotions in the most beautiful way. You certainly won’t regret hiring Susan for capturing all those memories you want to keep from your big day.”
“Susan is a phenomenal photographer. Her photos are suffused with genuine emotions whether it be surprise, tenderness, love or joy, Susan is there to capture the moment. We love the playfulness of her composition and the artistry of her editing. Susan was a joy to work with, from the meet and greet, to the engagement shoot, to the day of the wedding itself, Susan put us at ease and was always responsive, enthusiastic and dependable. We worked with many vendors for our wedding and Susan’s dedication was top notch. On the day of the wedding, Susan was the consummate professional. She got every shot that we asked for (and more), but was not intrusive in doing so; many guests even remarked they never noticed Susan. It is no exaggeration to say Susan was our favorite wedding vendor!”
