The wedding Experience

I get it. Choosing a photographer incredibly difficult. You probably have 457 tabs open right now. You're looking at poses, browsing galleries and Instagram and reading reviews - phew! Here's some insight on my values & feedback from past wedding clients to help you get a feel for my appreoach.


The things I believe are the most important when approaching a wedding (or any type of shoot, really).

1. Feeling over perfection

Life is rarely perfect, and the same goes for weddings, events and shoots! The goal in all my work is to capture a feeling & an esscence, and those rarely produce images that are "perfect".

Let go! Surprise and delight are often found on the other side of letting go of rigid expectations.

2. Go with the Flow

3. Be present

I find my best images are often created from clients who are fully present in their day. They enjoy, let go, and feel fully. Being fully prsent allows for real, genuine moments that will be more readily available for me to capture. Plus, it allows me to blend in a bit more -- people will often forget I'm there when they are just present :)

4. Be Mindful of your Community 

The people we surround ourselves are so important!

5. do things with intention

Not because someone told us it's what's "supposed" to happen.

6. Embrace the chaos

I find that often my best work is born amidst chaos. Movement and emotion -- letting go and letting things flow will bring some amazing, surprising images <3

Getting your photograph taken can be one of the most vulnerable experiences, and I think when people come to a session with openness, there is a higher likelihood of creative magic :)

"Susan is an incredibly talented photographer.

She shot our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner and wedding day - we were absolutely blown away by her work! She has such a creative eye and is able to capture such real, organic moments but also somehow elevate them and make them so beautiful and special. She made us feel comfortable and like "us" (especially my husband who does not like taking photos). Susan is kind, flexible, reliable, responsive, and just an overall joy to work with. We are so grateful for her and the memories she captured for us. By far the best decision we made for our wedding day. We highly highly recommend Susan for all photography needs, but especially weddings!

"I have nothing but praise for Susan.

For one, she's an incredibly, incredibly talented photographer. Our engagement and wedding pictures were amazing -- we couldn't believe how perfectly she'd captured us! You can feel our personalities and emotions from the photos, and she captured all the details beautifully. Perhaps more significantly, Susan is an incredible person. My husband and I felt at ease with her from the moment we met her, and she made both days so fun and lighthearted -- we had such a good time with her. We both feel that we came away from our experience with not only beautiful pictures but also a new friend.

I honestly can't say enough good things about Susan. I'm so grateful that we got to work with her and that she was a part of our wedding day."

"My husband and I loved working with Susan. 

She made us feel super comfortable and nothing felt super posed at all. The engagement session itself felt like we're just hanging out with an old friend! The pictures themselves came out AMAZING and we just had all the feels looking at all of them. None of the pictures looked super awkward or cheesy which is the main reason why we hired her in the first place. Her ability to capture genuine candid moments is out of this world.

If we ever need professional pictures again we're definitely working with Susan in a heartbeat :)

— Andrea & Justin

"Susan was just so lovely to work with! 

Her friendly and fun attitude always made us feel at ease when she was taking our photos. We specifically loved her photography style because she captures natural moments in an editorial style. We've gotten so many compliments on the wedding and engagement photos from so many people. We'd 100% recommend Susan for any photography needs, weddings or other events!
