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 Pier Sixty

Wedding at Pier Sixty

Where?: Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers

When? : July 2018

What part of your wedding day was your favorite?  If I were this couple, I wouldn’t be able to choose! Was it their amazing rehearsal dinner at Distilled NY? Working with Nancy Harris Events? Getting ready at the The Maritime Hotel, complete with beds on the floor in front of the TV and a rooftop balcony? Taking pictures outside? Their ceremony at Pier Sixty, The Lighthouse & Current? The food from Abigail Kirsch Catering Relationships? The groom’s dad playing with the band?  EVERY part of this weekend was my favorite, and I am so honored that these two great families chose me to document their celebration.

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