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 site! I can't wait to work with you.

My husband and I had zero question on using Susan for our wedding photos. We had seen her work from our friends wedding a few years previous and were truly impressed. Her level of detail and commitment towards capturing our day was amazing. Our photos came out better than our expectations! Susan we can't thank you enough for your quick response times and true professionalism. If we ever need a photographer again we will only have one number to call. Thank you for being a part of our journey!!!!!Sent on 01/07/2020

Can I hire Susan to run my life? She’s that amazing
Of all my favorite picks from our wedding day on 9/29/19, and trust me there were a lot, Susan absolutely took the number one spot (besides my groom of course!).Sent on 11/22/2019
From the first phone call with her, I knew she would be the perfect fit for a type A person like me. She promised to produce a timeline of events, enabling her to answer every small question like when my mom should get dressed. She got everything on my shot list and then some. She skillfully handled my bridal party portraits after the groomsmen had too much to drink on the party bus. And she knew that pictures were important to me but not important enough to pull me away from celebrating, allowing us to have so many beautiful candids. In fact of all the positive feedback I’ve gotten on my photos, it’s that they look natural and real. Her teaser came only a few days later while we were honeymooning and did not disappoint, and the remainder came well before what was anticipated in our contract.
If you want one less thing to worry about on your wedding day, do yourself a favor and book Susan. She is professional, detail-oriented, and honestly really great at hyping you up. Thank you, Susan!

All around amazing!
Susan was nothing but professional from day one. She was so sweet helping us navigate the wedding vocabulary and figure out our style. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple to make our day more fun than we every could have imagined, AND she managed to capture every bit of that emotion on camera. She also kept the entire day running smoothly. I didn’t realize this, but the photographer is the one that builds the schedule and really keeps the day on track, and Susan was very organized, excellent at communicating with us and our vendors, and very flexible with any customizations we asked for. An amazing person, gorgeous photos, and an incredible experience overall!Sent on 10/23/2019
