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 Current Chelsea Piers

Wedding at Current Chelsea Piers

Who? : Janine + Robert

What? : Indoor church ceremony, outdoor winter portraits, and indoor modern ballroom reception

Where? : Current Chelsea Piers, Manhattan, New York

When? : November 2017

I am often asked by clients “What can I do to get the best wedding pictures possible?”  My answer might sound flippant, but it’s honest and true : “Be happy.”  That’s it – just be happy.  Happiness radiated off of Janine and Robert all day at their wedding at Current Chelsea Piers, from Janine getting ready at the magnificent Gramercy Park Hotel, to their gorgeous church ceremony, through to their joy-filled reception at Current.

Probably the most noticeable example of be happy happened during the portraits.  It was freezing – and not just kind of cold.  It was the first truly bone-numbing day of the 2017 winter season, with temperatures plummeting to an abrupt 26 that felt like 18.  Janine and Robert braved the outside for spectacular sunset pictures and gorgeous images on the cobblestone streets of the Meatpacking District.  They were happy.  And this wedding at Current Chelsea Piers was spectacular.

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