My life is filled with joy that comes from Jesus, lovely friendships, and an amazing family. I never want to stop learning to be a better wife, friend, and mom.

I love to be busy! Four boys and a wedding photography business keep me that way every day. My life is nothing like I imagined, but better than I ever could have.

all about susie

Susie here. :) I'm a typical middle child - into everything & competitive, although I have learned to curb my competitiveness as I've grown up. I'm also an introvert, but growing up with 5 siblings, I had to learn to hold my own at a young age. I loved growing up in a large family, and I'm still super close to all my siblings, even though we are spread out all over the country. I also have a love for travel and have been all over the world. I met my wonderful husband online and am very thankful for the internet! We lived 1000 miles apart and would never have met otherwise. Moving to the DC metro area five years ago was a major change from my small town where I lived in MS. (we didn't even have a red light, y'all - when I say small, I mean small...) I feel like I've adjusted well and am now used to traffic, traffic, and more traffic. We have one baby girl, and I must say, one of the greatest joys of my life is watching my husband adore his daughter.

1. Jesus. He's my everything. I'm nothing without Him, and He gives me a reason to live and love.
2. Taking walks with my husband. Our dates mostly consist of us getting coffee and walking around. It makes it hard to go on dates in the winter because I hate being cold!
3. Our baby girl. Being a mom is the most demanding and rewarding job all at once. And I love it.
4. Coffee, coffee, and more coffee.
5. My family. I grew up with five siblings and loved it! 
6. Food. I really like to eat. :) I even like cooking some of the time.
7. Travel. I used to travel a lot. I would basically work, save money, spend money traveling, come home and repeat the cycle. I've been to China, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, Honduras, England, Spain, Italy, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, and to a lot of places in the US. I still have more places on my bucket list and it's just a matter of convincing my husband to come with me now!
8. Playing piano. I'm not that great, but it's fun to play!
9. The South. I'm a southern girl, y'all, and I've gotta stay true to my roots. :)
10. And last, but definitely NOT least - my husband. I couldn't imagine anyone better for me. He puts up with me, makes me laugh, challenges me, and makes me want to be a better person.

susie's favs:

Becky is one of the most giving people I know, and she invests so much in her friends and her family. I've learned so much about being a good friend from her. She really does care so deeply about people, and that also really has influenced us so much as we've come up with ways to give each of our couple's a fantastic experience with their wedding photography. She's so wonderful at going into a situation and knowing what to do and say to make everyone comfortable and relaxed. Her energy knows no bounds, and she's never satisfied with mediocrity. 

 She's always pushing us forward to learn more and implement things in our business to give everyone a better experience. :)

all about Becky

Hi! I'm Becky :) I overuse parentheses, hyphens, exclamation points, and capital letters.  I'm a left/right brain kind of girl, who double majored in Math and English (I loved the literature classes way more). Before teaming up with Susie, I taught middle school math, worked for my husband's software company, and started a non-profit cookie making business. With photography, I've finally found a PERFECT balance-- running a business, growing creatively, and spending time with people. 

My husband and I have four sons and the best word to describe our home is LOUD. Of course, we love it (most days!). When I first took up this hobby, I knew that I didn't want my kids to hate something that I love. I practiced looking for authentic moments that typified my kid's personalities. The heart of what I do for our clients is identical to what I do for my family. Making my clients comfortable comes first.

1.My leather jacket--I'm always cold and it's always warm and soft.
2.Butter, basil, roasted potatoes...and pretty much all other food. I love to cook, love to eat, and love food photography. One of my fondest goals is to photograph a cookbook someday!
3.Fresh flowers, either in my garden or on my table. 
4.Hosting parties. There are so many reasons to celebrate in life. To me, prep work is part of the celebration! I love people and enjoy having them in my home.
5.Being outdoors with my family and my camera. This one should probably be in first place!
6. Date nights! With four kids at home, they're rare, but we enjoy them when we can and we know this stage isn't forever.
7. 24 hour lipstick, because I have unnaturally pale lips.
8.The library. I still can't believe that one of life's greatest pleasures--opening a new book--is abundantly available for FREE. My heart skips a beat every single week I walk into the library with my kids.
9. Family game night--every Friday, we grab something for dinner (usually Chipotle!) so cleanup afterwards is quick. We spend the rest of the evening playing a game with the older kids. Clue, Dominion, and Ticket to Ride are our favorites! If everyone is too grumpy from the week, which does happen on occasion, we read Harry Potter out loud to each other.

becky's favs:

Wedding days are so much lower stress when I'm out shooting with Susie! She thinks quickly on her feet and is an amazing problem-solver. However, wedding days are just a tiny percentage of our time together. More time is spent on meetings, emails, and phone calls about business and LIFE! Spending time around Susie really does make me a better person. For one thing, she refuses to say anything negative about others, which is an incredibly rare and admirable trait. Susie's so good at putting herself in others' shoes. Even when Susie is really frustrated, the very worst she'll ever do is shake her head and say, "Bless their hearts."   

I love working with Susie! Y'all will love her too.

why becky loves working with susie

I loved working with Susie & Becky. It's sometimes hard when planning a wedding to find professional, responsive, and responsible vendors. Becky and Susie are the epitome of professionalism. They always responded within a day to any of my questions. I found it very reassuring that they took a very detail oriented approach to satisfying all my needs on my wedding day. I highly recommend Susie & Becky if you're looking for photographers that are extremely easy to work with and will go that extra mile.

STEPHANIE & KEN

We feel so fortunate to have worked with Susie and Becky. So many of our guests commented after the wedding on how friendly and professional Susie and Becky were. Their positive attitudes added so much to the atmosphere of the event, but the best part was seeing how they captured so many candid moments on the spot. They also worked so well with all of our other vendors, especially our videographers, We whole-heartedly recommend Susie and Becky!

lauren & josh

Absolutely gorgeous photos! Susie and Becky were such a pleasure to work with both before and during our wedding. Two great things to know: we got our pictures extremely quickly, which was wonderful, and Susie and Becky had the family and bridal party shots down to a science. I have been a bridesmaid seven other times and this was the fastest and most efficient team. And the pictures turned out so well!! I highly recommend this team!

mary & terry

I don't even know where to begin to describe how amazing Susie and Becky are. Right away I knew I wanted to work with them because their photography was not only beautiful, it told a story from start to finish. They kept in contact with me up until the very week before my wedding. Unfortunately a week before my wedding, a hurricane was heading our way. Becky and Susie nailed it. I am so thankful for them and couldn't have imagined working with anyone else.

maron & adam

Our photographers were the sweetest, kindest people! Doing an engagement shoot is strange, but they made us love the experience, they kept giving us such positive feedback that we felt like supermodels. And our pictures turned out amazing! Their philosophy--which we loved--is to be out-of-sight but always there to capture the perfect moment.  And yet, our pictures were amazing, as if they were right in the middle of it all. 

elizabeth & john

All I can say is WOW! You have so far exceeded my expectations, I don't know what else to say... When I first viewed the blog, I started to cry with all the emotions flooding me from the day of our wedding. When my fiancé wanted to have the wedding photographed I was hesitant, thinking this is our second wedding, is this really necessary? I was so wrong. Thank you, thank you,thank you for preserving that special day for both of us. You have a special gift!

shauna & kyle

Becky and Susie shot my Spring wedding in April. From the moment I spoke with Susie on the phone I knew that they were going to be the perfect photographers for my wedding! They responded to calls and e-mails almost immediately! I shared my vision with them and they executed it perfectly. The pictures were BEAUTIFUL and exactly what I envisioned. I am so happy that I followed my instincts and chose them as my photographer!
