Susan loves shooting people. After many years of advertising, magazine editorials, and corporate work her clients wondered if she shot weddings. Having shot her first wedding at eighteen, she replied by saying, “ Let me document the day, a few posed shots, and see what naturally happens.” That has been her vision for 15 years. Tony on the other hand concentrated on still life, food and products. Two great photographers working together capturing every aspect of your wedding day.
