Allison & Mark
Married at Portland Headlight in Cape Elizabeth and Grace in Portland, Maine
★★★★★ (5 out of 5 stars)
"There are many reasons why Suzanne Simmons Photography is simply the best wedding photographer one could hire. She was incredibly available in the days to months before the wedding to answers all types of questions, both photography related and not. She is honest – when I asked her what package would be the best fit for our wedding, she did not push us into the most expensive option. Instead she asked me about what I was looking for and recommended the packaged that suited our needs. Her day-of skills were out of this world. She was on point for everything, having gone out ahead of time to scope out areas to take the best photos. Amazingly, she carries everything one could possibly need on her belt, proving she's more than just a photographer.
One of my favorite parts was looking at photos other friends/family had taken. I would try to see if I could spot Susie in them (which she was so sneaky a lot of the times I couldn’t) but in some of my favorites, you can see how hard she is working. I have photos of her smiling from ear to ear as my grandparents walked down the aisle; I have photos her and I talking as she kept us on schedule for cake cutting/ first dance/ toasts etc.; and I have one of her producing a bottle opener from her magical belt of all things. I write this because these shots to me, demonstrate how human she is. She wasn’t a robot just there to earn her money and get out. She was a welcome guest who just happened to be taking some really AWESOME photos throughout the day. I received the most compliments from my guests about how wonderful and personable Susie was (is).
Lastly, the quality of her photos is beyond expectation. There were a plethora of shots, which is what I feel that most people want – so many options to choose from! The photo site where we could order photos was very easy to use. I was so impressed with how stunning they were in print. Fantastic quality, delivered in a timely manner. THANK YOU SO MUCH, SUSIE!!"
