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'm living Happily Ever After, so I love weddings!! My favorite part is the toasts because I believe in the power of story, laughter, and affirming words.

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 two amazing daughters, and I must say, one of the greatest joys of my life is watching my husband be such a good dad to our daughters.

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. 

< GO BACK

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.

Susie & Becky are truly amazing. Words can hardly do them justice. From our first meeting, I could see the passion that they have for wedding photography and they are so unbelievable kind. They are the type of people who you just can't help but smile around. And their photos - gorgeous! They kept in touch in the months leading up to the wedding which was so nice and were very responsive. The wedding pictures really blew me away. They not only captured us, but how it felt to be there at our wedding.

Alison and Yusuf

We can't say enough amazing things about Susie & Becky! We clicked from the first meeting, which was really important since we're a little camera shy and not the biggest fans of attention. They made us comfortable and our personalities came through in the photos. They're super organized, which was so reassuring. We were so grateful that they were able to deliver exactly what we wanted even though our timeline wasn't the friendliest to photographers! Their flexibility was amazing and really kept us sane. We'd hire them again in a heartbeat if we did it all over!

Erika and Alex

Susie & Becky are PHENOMENAL. I cannot say enough amazing things about them - they have a great eye for working the elements in a photo, making you feel comfortable and at ease, and capturing amazing moments. I am pretty Type A so I wanted to make sure all of the photos for both our engagement shoot and wedding would be great - and they responded to all of my email inquires and did not make me feel like I was a "crazy bride". I was also a nervous wreck about the photos, but they made me feel so comfortable. I am so grateful for them to be part of our special day!

Rachel and Justin

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

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

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.
