Fabulous photography and much more!

We chose Susan based on her online portfolio which demonstrated the greatest range of clientele types and variety of points of view and couldn't be happier. She not only created great shots during an engagement session and the actual wedding day, she was instrumental as an advisor helping with our programming of the day's events and was our secret supporter during the wedding, always on hand with advice and suggestions but never ever in the way.
I love her work and the work she did helping us have the perfect wedding! Thank you, Susan!

Susan is a wonderful photographer, she has captured our engagement, wedding and maternity photos and has done a wonderful job each time. The pictures come out better than I could have planned and Susan is such a pleasure to work with. She always gets your pictures back to you in a timely manner and they are very high quality. I can't wait to have her photograph my new baby girl when she gets here.
