Why You Should Choose Susan Shek as your NYC Wedding Photographer:
We want your big day to be a beautiful one, focused on capturing the essence of your soon to be marriage. It is our goal to share your love through our images.
The wedding is your day to celebrate the love between you and your partner. Wherever the ceremonies are held, we are focused on taking photos that are authentic, captivating, and emotional. Of course, we love taking stylized shots of other elements involved, but the key focus is you and your love.
No matter the location – our team will make it adherent to capture the raw beauty, generic emotions, and everlasting love.
On your wedding day, we understand what we are there for. We enjoy the wedding as we would a guest, but we are there to intuitively take images of the key points – the points you may not be able to witness such as your friends dancing, your parents emoting when you exchange your vows, and of course, the reactions of a bouquet toss.
We take the time to understand you and your partner as we become emotionally invested in both of you. We want to make your dreams come true by providing the absolute best images. In order to do that, we strive to learn as much about you so that we have a better sense of how to capture your special wedding day moments.
While many photographers stand around and take pictures when convenient, we make it of vital importance to capture every important moment on your big day. You will never see our team taking a break, for we are always concentrating on one goal or another.
We have learned over time that one’s emotional journey manifests and is told through one’s eyes. Our team focuses on this specific form of communication so that all emotional language on your big day is captured and preserved. From the joy in the bride’s eyes when she says “I do!”, to the tears being held back by the bride’s father when he walks his precious daughter down the aisle, all the way to the celebratory expressions manifested by the wedding guests during the big party – we make sure that every moment is captured.
Susan Shek Photography is way more than just an NYC wedding photographer. We go above and beyond from the moment you set up a consultation. My team believes that a happy and relaxed bride equals stunning and immaculate photography. So that’s exactly what we strive for throughout your wedding planning process. Need vendor recommendations? Need advice on how to prepare for your big day? Need a good pep talk? Susan Shek Photography is here for any and all needs.
Besides providing recommendations and advice before your big day, we go above and beyond on the day of your wedding too. From pinning your boutonniere, to making sure your hair looks stunning, to last-minute dress fixes, all the way to moral support – we want you to have the utmost relaxed and joyous time.
Looking for the perfect hotel for you and your guests to stay at? Looking for the best of the best restaurants to eat at? Our team is here to help. I personally have lived in New York City for my entire life, so I can provide you as much information or recommendations about the city that never sleeps.
My tenure in the city and experience as an NYC Wedding Photographer has also introduced me to some of the most beautiful locations and venues around. Some of the places I’ve shot at and admire include: Battery Gardens, the Plaza Hotel, Guastavino’s, Chelsea Piers, Tribeca Rooftops, Top of the Rock, various locations in Westchester, the Loeb Boathouse, the Surf Club on the Sound, Central Park, Pier Sixty, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Saint Francis Xavier Church, and various locations throughout Brooklyn.
We do not consider our couples as clients. It is our goal to build long-lasting relationships with all of our couples, for years to come after the wedding.
Even when your big day has finally passed, we want to make sure you are 100% satisfied with all of your pictures. Susan Shek Photography carefully reviews every single image to make sure they are edited professionally and properly, thus manifesting the true ambiance of that specific moment. Even when we are designing Wedding Albums, we communicate thoroughly with our couples so that the album is everything you can imagine. If at any time you’d like additional edits or changes, we are happy to work with all your needs.
I have built some of my closest friendships with past couples who had weddings that I photographed. This is a goal that I will continue to pursue!
Our innate artistic and creative aesthetic along with our keen work ethic will excite you once you receive the images. The greatest reward for me is to see the couple’s reaction after they receive the pictures. You’ll get to relive and witness moments from the big day for the rest of your life. Nothing makes us happier than to see these reactions; we can’t wait to celebrate with you on your big day.
