As a photographer, photo editor and photo researcher Susan has made photography a major part of her life. She started her career as a documentary photographer, and uses this story telling style to capture the spontaneous and genuine moments of her time with you.

Currently she specializes in small intimate events such as City Hall weddings, destination weddings, elopements, honeymoons, engagements, proposals and family reunions. ANYTHING that brings you to NYC to celebrate!

New York Magazine's Wedding's has listed her in their best photographer editorial section since 2003, saying she "tells a vibrant, moment-to-moment story while remaining unobtrusive"

When not working in photography she studies jewelry making and is particularly interested in the lost wax process. Some of this work can be found on http://violetraedesigns.com and http://violetrae.etsy.com
