I capture the unspoken — the glances, the silences — drawing from New York's pulse and the richness of global cultures. Every wedding is its own intricate narrative. Rooted in theatre and life's everyday rhythms, I document moments both transient and timeless. 

Hey, I'm susan!

Wedding at 26 Bridge in DUMBO

Wedding at 26 Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge Park

Who? : Flo + Chris

What? : Preparations at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, the ceremony at Brooklyn Bridge Park, portraits in DUMBO, and a reception in a renovated metal factory

Where? : 26 Bridge, Brooklyn, New York

When? : June 2018

When I showed up to Flo’s room at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, I was met with a floor and beds strewn with flower debris.  “We’re making the bouquets…right now.  Corsages, too!” a bridesmaid told me, and it was love at first sight.  From the flower-field of destruction on their hotel room floor to Chris’s lip-lock with a piece of seaweed, the caress of a groomsman’s leg during door games to a ceremony overlooking the best view in all of Brooklyn, Flo and Chris planned a day filled with love, laughter, and great senses of humor.  It was a huge joy to document this day for them,  and the trust that they placed in me was a huge honor.

Here are a few of my favorite images from the day:
