About Me


Hi, I’m Sue. When studying for my degree I realised my passion was photographing people and how to bring out their unique personalities.  Every couple is different and very special in their own way and I just love getting to know you, how you met, your dreams for the future but most importantly, exactly what you want for your wedding day. As well as Photography, I studied Art which has given me a unique understanding of composition and light so you will have some beautiful images for your wall and photo album too.  I’m the kind of photographer who loves you to have a fun and relaxed  wedding, and to give you images that reflect the pure joy, happiness and laughter of your special day.



Absolutely in love with our wedding photographs!  Sue has done a fab job capturing our special day, all the emotions and special moments around not just ourselves but family and friends too.  They tell the story of our day exactly how it was.  Would highly recommend Sue to anyone looking for a down to earth, friendly, really relaxed and personal service.  Thanks so much Sue we really are over the moon with them all, they are amazing, just like yourself!

Steph & Ross

Susan we are both so grateful to you for photographing our wedding with such care and attention to detail. It was our pleasure to discuss our ideas and hopes which you were able to interpret wonderfully – as we can all see. All our friends and family love the pictures and we have thoroughly enjoyed reliving our special day through your photographs. An absolutely huge thank you from us. We can’t recommend you highly enough.

I am struggling to get work done! The pictures are amazing. I can’t express how delighted we are with them. You captured everything so beautifully, we can live it again. I will recommend you to everyone! Thank you so very much. I so appreciate your time, effort and absolute skill.

We absolutely love them!!  Thank you so much again, we couldn’t be happier with them and couldn’t have asked for a better photographer on the wedding day!!

Susan is fantastic, she spent a lot of time checking out the venue beforehand, has a really relaxed manner which puts guests at ease and the resultant photos are first class.

My Style of Photography


I’m the kind of photographer who loves you to have a fun and relaxed wedding day. Delivering images that reflect pure joy, happiness and laughter. Channeling years of experience practicing fine art, I blend the deeply romantic for your portraits. Using natural light wherever possible, with a documentary style which covers every special moment. All done in a fun, friendly and unobtrusive way that you will hardly know I am there. If you would like to have beautiful images to cherish forever then contact me to reserve your day.
