Susan was always quick to reply by email or to take a call to go over the details of our wedding day. We had a small ceremony in the morning followed by a larger reception at night, and Susan surprised us by putting a number of our photos from the ceremony on an ipad, and bringing it to the party that night, only a few short hours later, so that our guests who weren't at the ceremony could all see the photos. We received our entire album very quickly after our wedding day, and Susan was great to work with, had a fun personality, and is clearly very talented, based on the fantastic quality of our photos. Trusting a wedding photographer to capture such a special day is a big decision, and if I was to do it all over again I would definitely go with Susan again.

Susan is amazing. She was went WAY beyond her job description and assisted us as an "unofficial wedding planner"! She had so much experience with the venue, and weddings in general...that she was an a regular wikipedia for weddings. Her responses were always immediate, regardless of how trivial the question was and how busy she was. I really believe that this is more than a profession for her. It's a passion. She genuinely loves what she does and it shows in how she does it. OUTSTANDING!

Susan was great from the very 1st minute of speaking to her. She understood exactly what our needs were and her response time and communication was excellent. Her photos came out beautifully and the turnaround time for processing was very efficient. She was easy to work with during the shoot and everyone enjoyed her company and work. We were so impressed with her that we will be making use of her services for future events as well.

My husband and I looked at dozens of different photographers before we came across Susan's website, and we instantly knew that she was the right one for us! We loved her portfolio - her amazing use of natural light, her ability to capture very candid and genuine moments during an event that is often so structured and scripted, and the variety of the weddings she had shot. I contacted Susan with our wedding date and location, and she responded immediately with her availability and pricing. My husband and I were completely thrilled with her price packages and couldn't believe she was still available, so we booked her instantly! She was very professional and friendly during the process leading up to the wedding, and an absolute superstar the day of. I hardly remember her being there, even though it was a very small, outdoor wedding. My husband and I had access to ALL the photographs only a couple weeks later, while we were still on our honeymoon, and we were just blown away by how beautiful they were. Very very natural, beautiful, and professional. Our friends and family have told us over and over how they are the most beautiful wedding photos they have ever seen, and we recommend Susan to everyone we know - whether they are looking for a wedding photographer or not!!

Trying to find a wedding photographer in NYC is ridiculously overwhelming. I pored through pages on The Knot & Wedding Wire until I finally found someone who was in our price range, had gorgeous work, and seemed like a down-to-earth person. When we contacted Susan for a meeting, her response was prompt and professional.

As soon as we met with Susan, we knew she was the right choice for us. She's extremely perceptive and immediately understood what we wanted in a photographer, without having a big ego or trying to push us into spending anything outside our budget. (Which is a rare find for NYC photogs!) She worked amazingly well with our restrictions and helped us come up with a package that was perfect for us. She even recommended a bunch of vendors, several of whom I ended up hiring and also loving!

We were in touch for the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, and on the wedding day, she was honestly just amazing. While I was getting ready and maybe slightly freaking out in my own head, she was organizing my bridesmaids and our dresses and generally just being a fairy godphotographer.

She worked well with our videographer. She even helped me take out my crazy-long and basically-super-glued-into-my-scalp cathedral veil. Within HOURS of the wedding, she already had a few preview shots up on her Facebook page, and all of our wedding photos were sent within two weeks. Magic.

Hire this woman. If you have any doubts, check out her Instagram feed @susanshekphotography. (Always check out photographer's Instagram feeds!)
