My approach to wedding photography is a little different.

I believe that when you hire a photographer, you're not just hiring a price and a package and a bunch of 8x10's. You're hiring a person. One you'll actually spend a considerable amount of time with on your wedding day. A person who must be gracious and present. Aware of how to be, what to do, whatnot to say and how to make it all flow seamlessly. A photographer who helps you feel comfortable in front of the camera. That's right. No awkward poses or stiff portraits. A photographer who takes the time to know you and what you're all about. Someone who pours her heart and soul into every gig. Every time. Someone who knows how to interact gracefully with a group of Cuervo-filled groomsmen one minute and your 90-year-old grandmother the next. And get stunning images all the while. Read less

There is no way I could have chosen a better photographer than Suzanne. I am really nervous in front of a camera but wanted both an affordable and high quality wedding photographer (a needle in a haystack in wine country!). And yet, I found Suzanne. She is the warmest, easiest person to be around and from the moment we spoke on the phone I knew she was The One. She put us completely at ease and made us smile and laugh through our engagement photos and through the stress of our wedding day. In fact, her experience and great suggestions helped us plan a more efficient timeline for the wedding day itself and helped us minimize the post-ceremony photos so we could enjoy more of our reception with our friends and family. Our photos came out stunningly, and I think Suzanne's most notable gift is her ability to capture candid moments that showcased our guests' personalities and their relationships with us and each other. I look forward to working with Suzanne in the future and am forever grateful that we chose her to photograph our wedding!

We had the wonderful opportunity for work with Suzanne Karp to shoot our wedding photographs, and would recommend her to any couple in the world.

From the moment we met Suzanne in her design studio and began describing the moments we hoped to capture in pictures, Suzanne was able to show us album after album of the some of the most beautiful wedding photographs that captured the emotions of the events. Two things in particular stood out about Suzanne - her breathtaking photography and a statement she had on her website that she would be unobtrusive and not try to run the show.

Through a creative long lens, Suzanne was able to capture the intimate details of the wedding ceremony and reception, but we never heard the lens shutter or feel that a camera was in our face. She carefully found the right spot and took the most beautiful pictures of us, our families and friends. The next morning we previewed the sneak peak album and immediately saw the wonderful emotion, sense of love, friendship and celebration in every single picture. She simply is the absolute best photographer we have ever worked with and will be a friend for life.

I cannot endorse Suzanne Karp enough. I have had the great pleasure of working with Suzanne over the years as a wedding venue coordinator, confidently recommending her to clients and enjoying every moment of working with her from planning through to execution. When it was my turn to be the bride, to say it was an easy choice to hire Suzanne would be an understatement. After tearing up talking about our wedding day, my husband and I waited a whole five minutes before calling her to hire her! I cannot rave enough about her level of commitment, professionalism and genuine investment in her couples. She not only created a custom package to suit our needs, she also designed our save the dates and entire invitation suite using images of our wedding venue. She was such a calming and reassuring presence throughout the whole process and, day of, it was as if we were with family. Suzanne made us feel like we weren’t being photographed but we were confident she was capturing everything we wanted. Unless you want specific staged photos a la Pinterest, let Suzanne do her thing. And, that "thing” is to capture your day, your love your loved ones with such detail and care it will bring you to tears when you receive a sneak peek the next day. Suzanne is now our family and will be the one capturing all the milestones to come. Make your planning easy, enjoyable and incredibly personal - hire Suzanne Karp!

Suzanne was great on our wedding day! I am not a fan of being the center of attention, and she made me feel comfortable. She's laid back and really easy and fun to work with.
I definitely recommend her!

Suzanne is FANTASTIC! My wife and I ended our wedding day feeling as if we'd made two great friends in both Suzanne and her husband Graham (who served as a second photographer for a portion of the day - at NO extra charge!)! Suzanne made the photos one of the easiest parts of our wedding day - fun, quick, and completely positive! We ran behind on our ceremony timing, so Suzanne effortlessly squeezed our bridal photos into the time right after our ceremony, as well as a few more sprinkled through the reception. She would snap photos when we had a moment - and somehow made them each look like a quality picture with us alone. It allowed us to both thoroughly enjoy our reception & cocktail hour, but still end up with many of the photos we wanted from our wedding day! And she has such a laid back and fun personality that she (and Graham too!) was AWESOME to just have around all day! She cried with us at our first dance, she boogied on the dance floor while taking pics, and she helped keep us on track (when a not-so-useful wedding coordinator was nowhere to be found). My wife and I couldn't imagine our wedding day with out Suzanne & Graham...you can't go wrong with hiring them!

Suzanne was absolutely amazing! For starters, she was personable and informative from the get go. She answered all of my questions in our initial email and was able to help me determine exactly what kind of package I was looking for. My husband and I had to meet with her fairly early on in the planning process (about 9 months before the wedding) because we were moving to Germany and wouldn't be back in the States until just before the wedding. Suzanne was great about emailing and checking in with us every so often until the big day, and was able to work with the venue and the caterer to coordinate the schedule for the night. On the day of, Suzanne's calm, collected nature made the process very stress fee and quick! She is very efficient, got all of the shots we had asked for (including all of the family shots we needed) and was great with the little kids who would have otherwise made the portraits drag on. The best part was that my husband and I woke up to a few preview collages the morning after and she had our online gallery up and running in about of week! The pictures are amazing, very real, and every detail was captured. Amazing!

The best. BEST! We loved her, we felt so comfortable; no silly poses, just natural pictures taking advantage of great lighting and backgrounds. Doesn't even compare to some of the other oddballs we met with before her. We knew the minute we shook hands!
