Capturing Moments and Magic

Susan Blackburn of Blackburn Portrait Design captured the the love and joy of our wedding day perfectly! I first saw Susan's photos of a friend's wedding and was blown away. Susan took photos of every moment requested and so many more I didn't realize I'd want but am so thankful to have. Throughout the reception we didn't even notice her snapping most of the shots. She always made us feel comfortable and never self conscious. Her colleague Jim joined us on the day and was equally as skilled, professional, and fun! The day after the wedding as we were enjoying our coffee I got the alert Susan had a posted nearly 70 photos as our sneak peak! To right away be able to look back on the night was unexpected and the perfect was to relive it with our loved ones. Since then working with Susan to receive the photos and build our album has been a breeze. Susan will capture the magic of the day so that you will remember forever!

Susan is amazing!

Susan was amazing! She was very detailed in asking what photos we wanted. There were a few we didn't get and that was entirely our fault ( I was late LOL). We requested a photo journalistic style and she did a fabulous job with that. When we got our USB of photos there were so many that we both said "wow, I didn't event see her there taking pictures". We called her "stealth" many time. Several of our guests who had more time to observe said she was amazing...she was laying on the floor at points..on the ground etc...just to get the perfect shots! She is very pleasant and accommodating with your wishes. She is SO easy to work with! We are inquiring about future photography needs with her also. You will be pleased!. I'd love to share ALL of our photos so you can see, but i will share a few of our favorites.

Simply amazing experience!

We hired Blackburn Portrait Design to photograph my daughter's destination wedding in Salt Lake City as well as a reception here in New York. Sue's eye for detail was exceptionable. The photographs are beyond amazing! The memories and moments that she captured are priceless! Sue was also very helpful in giving us tips for the wedding and setting up a timeline for the day. I highly recommend Blackburn portrait design for your wedding, or any occasion.

I've had the pleasure to work with Susan at a recent wedding. I've seen her work prior to working with her and she's one of the most talented and artistic photographers in the area. Susan has such an eye for making something beautiful and memorable. She sees things we don't and creates magic from it. Not only is she talented but she's also a professional, easy to work with, and follows a schedule. I'd highly recommend her services for weddings, portraits, or any memorable occasion. -Donna Connor On The Go Concierge & Events
