About

We are in uncertain times, and everything from going to the store to planning childcare takes complex thought and diligent execution. Planning a photography session can feel a bit overwhelming, too. So, I’ve put together an outline of Covid-19 related safety precautions for my clients. Here’s the most important thing you need to know: The health and safety of my clients is my #1 priority.

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.

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

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!

 

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
