During my years at college I had been working weekends at a photography studio in York owned by Darron Hartas and after completing my course he offered me a full time position. This gave me a good grounding in the profession and after only a couple of years I achieved my ambition and felt ready to open my own photography business.
Not only was I the ‘new girl on the block’ … I was the ‘only’ girl on the block! As the first female photographer in the York area, I spent hours thinking up fancy names to call my business but my instinct for ‘Suzanne Photography’ won through and that is how it has stayed. Nothing gimmicky (that’s not my style) it says it just as it is and is also easy for clients to remember.
It’s said ‘never work with children or animals’ but ironically I have a great affinity with both. I enjoy working with them to make sessions fun and interesting and my customers tell me it shows in the end results. If you will excuse the pun though, weddings for me are the ‘icing on the cake’. I really do love to archive a bride and groom’s special day. Although I am there to record the proceedings, I can’t help getting caught up in the tears, the laughter and the whole atmosphere of such a happy occasion. One of the biggest compliments that I hear over and over again is the one that means the most to me (well apart from praise for the finished photographs) and that is… “it seemed like I was part of the family”.
In my spare time I’m a big fan of the countryside, walking, cycling, live music, travelling, Thai food and of course… my photography!
I really hope you enjoy looking at a selection of my work on this website and even more that we can work together in the future.
