My first camera was a Polaroid OneStep I got when I was 12. I toted it everywhere, pretending I was a “serious artist,” saving my allowance to buy film. I didn’t just see pictures in the objects and life around me; I felt them. And being able to capture those feelings on film was (and is) thrilling. But years went by before I really learned anything about photography. At Archbishop Wood Catholic high school, the art program was only for the talented sketchers, and I wasn’t one of them.



It wasn’t until I was a senior in college, studying sociology, that I took an intro to photography class. It changed my life. This was my medium, and I wanted to learn as much about photography as I could. I talked to photographers, read photo books, took workshops, and made trips to museums. Photography began to shape how I looked at the world.



After college, I studied with some of the great photographers of our time: Larry Fink, Debbie Fleming-Caffrey and photo critic John Szarkowski. As Larry Fink’s printer and studio manager, I become a master printer. It took years, and many muddy prints, to reach that place. I miss the darkroom (even the smell of the chemicals). I spent hours there. The darkroom was my sanctuary—a place to print, listen to music or think.



Now instead of standing in a darkroom, I sit at a computer. My commercial work has required me to add digital cameras and Photoshop to my resume. It’s not as exciting as the darkroom but I love the versatility of digital photography. And it has opened up my work to include more color. Read less

Susie is incredible. She was the simplest part of planning our entire wedding. We saw her work, fell in love with it, contracted with her, and a week before the wedding she got into contact with us to confirm details, and that was it. We really just let her do her thing on wedding day with very few requests. And the final product was phenomenal. We are so glad we chose her. Her photography is so much more than what most typical wedding photography is; it is true human artwork. The way she captured and documented our day allows our entire family to truly relive the moments and brings back every emotion, smiles, tears, laughs, and all. Recommend is an understatement. If you are lucky enough to have a wedding on a date she is not already booked, please give this woman the opportunity to provide you with a perspective of your day that you will find invaluable.

Susie photographed my wedding on June 29, 2014. She came highly recommended to us and we had a wonderful experience with her from the beginning. She showed us several albums of her work in our first meeting and I knew we had to have her. Her photos do more than depict an event...she manages to capture the emotion of the people behind the lens. This was important to me as I wanted the majority of our photos to be candid and in the moment.

The day of the wedding she arrived on time and got right to work. Things were crazy in our room as we were getting ready because we had four flower girls between ages 1 1/2 and 4! Susie was not phased by the chaos, and was able to get some beautiful photos anyway. During the ceremony, I honestly did not even know she was there because she blended in so well. After the ceremony we did our formal portraits which were quick yet thorough. I had a few posed shots I wanted and Susie made sure we got those. Other than that, I let her do her thing!

We got our photos exactly three weeks after our wedding. We were thrilled by the quick turn around and they are just amazing! She captured both the events and the emotion of our day perfectly. The photos bring me back to the moment...for example, when I first saw the pictures of me with my parents about to walk down the aisle, my heart began to race just like it did the day of!

I am so happy that we had the opportunity to work with Susie. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat. If you have the chance to work with her...take it! I hope that in the future we can work with her again for family or anniversary photos. Thank you again Susie!!!

I always admired Susie Forrester's work and was over the moon when I had the opportunity to have her as our photographer at our wedding. Susie and her assistant was so much fun to work with and their extensive experience and professionalism shows through. Her unique photographs are breath taking, she makes the simplest things that no one notices spectacular. Her photographs are truly beautiful and will brings tears to your eyes every time you look through them. She actually captures the emotions of her subjects through her lens. If you have the opportunity to have her at your special event, you will not be disappointed, she is truly gifted.

Susie was a wonderful photographer to work with. She was incredibly accommodating, working with us on our budget and photography needs. Her work is stunning - her ability to capture emotion in an artistic and cinematic way surprises me every time I see our pictures. She and her second photographer were true professionals, arriving on time, taking care of our specific requests, and remaining unobtrusive - just an occasional "Hey look here and smile," and quickly getting the shot. We received our photos within a few weeks as promised, and couldn't be happier with them.

Susie was a great vendor to work with and a very talented photographer! She was very fun to work with and captured many special moments of our wedding day. She was able to capture the entire day and we didn't notice she was there many times! She adds a beautiful artistic touch to many photos and also makes sure to take classic pictures. She is very thorough throughout the day and made sure to take all of the pictures we requested. We have so many great pictures and definitely will cherish these pictures for years to come. We have received many compliments from our family and friends on our pictures too! We are so glad we chose Susie as our wedding photographer and would highly recommend her services.

Susie was so wonderful! She was so pleasant to be around my entire wedding day. She captured amazing shots and they are all so beautiful! She made my wedding look like a "pinterest wedding"! She gets some amazingly artistic photos but still gets all of the traditional wedding shots. The only problem I have is that I don't know how I will be able to choose which ones to print because they're all so good!

Susie Forrester and Dan were fabulous!!! Fabulous to work with! Fabulous to have around! Fabulous photographers!!! My husband and I are both artists so we were looking for a photographer that would have a creative approach to documenting our day. Susie and Dan did just that and so much more! We booked her over a year out because she is so popular so plan ahead! You will be thankful! Susie is so easy to work with, very calm and easygoing. Both her and Dan managed to document every little detail and happening at our wedding! They are extremely efficient and professional, managed to be everywhere at every second of the day but are not in your face. They blended right in with everyone and yet still managed to get a shot of everything minute of our day. They were great at organizing and working with the whole wedding party and getting all of the group shots done. They are extremely knowledgeable and are geniuses when it came to working in difficult lighting situations like group shots under the trees (sunlight on some people, others in the shade). I knew we were lucky to be able to book and work with Susie but I had no idea just how special it would be working with her and seeing the work she and Dan produced. We felt right at home with them. I honestly wished I could have booked her for our whole wedding weekend just to have her and Dan around. The images came in with in just a few short weeks on an easy to navigate and share password protected website as well as DVD's containing all of our images. I can't say enough great things about Susie and Dan and do not have a single complaint or anything bad to say. She is truly a creative, original, and professional gem! Thank you Susie... we get to relive our awesome day through your images now!
