“There are an infinite amount of incredible qualities of Susan Shek and her talented team brought to our big day! My now husband and I were married at St. Patrick’s Cathedral followed by a fabulous evening of dinner and dancing at The Plaza Hotel. To say that Susan and her team captured every moment would be an understatement. We were so absolutely impressed by the elegance each of the photos radiated. This came to no surprise being that when we were initially searching for a photographer, Susan’s images stuck the right cord with both of us from the very start.
From the moment I saw Susan’s pictures I knew she was the one. Her images are everything from elegant, fresh, classic and most importantly, unique! Despite being in love with her images, we felt we had to meet with multiple photographers before making our decision. After every meeting we would say the same thing, “she’s still better. “ We’re so glad we went with Susan!
Susan is a ‘Jill Of All Trades’ and I can say that she was an intricate force in every aspect of our wedding. I would text her about anything, she’d immediately respond and help or pretty much just fix little issue for me! For our engagement shoot, we sunset sailed the unpredictable waters of the Hudson River. My fiancé wasn’t initially thrilled with the conditions and we were both a little skeptical if we made the right choice all the while Susan cheering us on getting us excited and taking the most incredible shots, all the while standing up with two dueling cameras as we crashed through the waves!
The night of our rehearsal, an entertainment vendor unexpectedly called to cancel and I was left without a ballerina for my cocktail hour. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always dreamt of having a ballerina as part of my wedding day as dance is my first passion. Susan, being as thoughtful and she is resourceful, didn’t want me to not have all of my dreams come true. Susan able to find someone to replace the company that night and I arrived to The Plaza for pictures only to be surprised to the sight of the most beautiful ballerina entertaining our guests!
The entire team was incredibly professional and helpful on our wedding day. We felt like they didn’t miss a single moment. Every time a guest would whip out their phone a team member was there to say, “Hey here’s a professional one of that too.” If we had to start the planning process over again, the only thing we’d do differently is hire Susan sooner!” Jessica and Chris
