As a photographer, I've been taking New York headshots since I opened my first studio in the city. Working with actors is a genuine pleasure in my career as a photographer in NYC, and it's something I cherish with every booked shoot and headshot session I photograph. As a lifelong theatre enthusiast, headshots have been intertwined with my life since my college graduation. Initially, I stood in front of the camera as a performer. Now, I'm the photographer capturing these headshots, and I couldn't be more overjoyed.

As creatives ourselves, we wanted a photographer who did more than just capture our wedding; she made ART that is timeless and unforgettable.
But don’t be intimidated, she’s one of the most down-to-earth, easygoing, and delightful people I’ve ever met. We had so much fun with her and were honored to have her as our photographer.

I'm notoriously long winded so will try and be as brief as possible. Susan is awesome; her assistant is awesome; even her dog is awesome! She was easy to work with, professional, and creative. We felt like celebrities doing a photo shoot during our first look around Philly! The photographs Susan took are beautiful, we love them and we've received so many compliments on them.
Many of our guests and friends are now following Susan on Instagram--I recommend to anyone reading this to spend two minutes right now and check out her gorgeous photos of the Hamilton cast and you'll see for yourself that the 5 stars are well deserved. The value we received for the price we paid was well worth it. If only Susan was there to capture all of life's big moments! I would highly recommend Susan to any couple looking for a wedding photographer.

She is one of the most talented, amazing, and professional photographers we have ever come across. After we shared her blog post of our wedding showing a preview of the photographs, everyone commented with the same response: "Those are the best wedding pictures I have ever seen".
In a market flooded with wedding "photographers" Susan stands out far above the rest. She exceeded our expectations and captured the emotion of the day perfectly. Her usage of lighting and her composure of the images are incredible. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, stop, and hire Susan. You won't regret it.

After reviewing what seems like thousands of portfolios of work from other photographers, we can truly say that Susan's shot composition and overall aesthetic are unrivaled. Susan possesses this innate ability to identify pockets of light that make for dynamic and dramatic images without a heavy handed edit. Each shot in our respective collections feel truly unique as Susan plays with depth, focus and changes lenses and cameras frequently in order to create pictures that are one-of-a-kind, even if they're shot against the same backdrop.
Beyond her artistic ability (her pictures speak for themselves) Susan achieves the perfect balance of charming and professional! Our rapport grew during each of our shoots and she made us both feel so at ease, that getting organic looking pictures was a breeze.
“Susan Stripling is an absolutely essential hire for you and your partner.”
