Ellen + Kyle | An Old Courthouse Wedding in Cleveland, OH by Suzanne Price


Ellen + Kyle embody the sort of kindness that immediately brings a smile to your face. They are warm, genuine, smart, and - as is obvious - good looking. Theirs was a celebration punctuated by a crisp elegance, and we loved every minute.

Erica + Mike | A Huntington Beach Engagement Session by Suzanne Price


We got together on a chilly, late spring evening. I was half expecting the beach to be packed with families anxious to take advantage of the lack of rain, but the lovely stretch of sand was very nearly empty. Erica and Mike were so at ease and natural with each other. It was all about molding the light and angles and documenting their interactions. Can’t wait for their New Year’s Eve wedding!

Zoë and Matt | A beautifully personal Cleveland celebration by Suzanne Price


Homemade florals. Matt with flowers in his hair. Zoë of luminous smile. Color. Friends speaking love and testimonies of the impact these two have had on their lives. Pizza. Flash mob.

The most beautiful way to start out the 2019 wedding season!

Jessica + Ryan | A Cuyahoga Valley National Park Elopement by Suzanne Price

It's not every day that we get to hike out over ice covered rocks for a beautifully natural, serenely quiet, supremely joyous elopement. Fresh flowers, fresh denim, and fresh coffee punctuated this celebration. We loved Jessica's Pendleton blanket inspired coat and the thoughtful tarot coffee mugs provided by a dear friend for a little winter wonderland toast. 


Morganne | Maternity Session by Suzanne Price

I was Morganne's photographer on her wedding day. She was such an ebullient, joyful bride. Now she's a momma to be and I couldn't be more happy for her. It was so lovely to connect with Morganne again and soon I'll get to meet her little one!

Pierce Family - An In Home Family Session by Suzanne Price

This is our second in home session with the Pierce family and it's so fun to see how much little E. has grown! We really wanted to keep things natural and open, and between playtime, some yard fun, a feeding, a bath - we covered a whole evening of activity. Needless to say, time spent with the Pierce's is always so sweet. I can't wait until next time!

Lyndsey + Jamie | A gorgeous Cleveland engagement session by Suzanne Price

This summer has been exceptionally beautiful and Lyndsey and Jamie only enhanced the gloriousness of this particular day. Betsey and Stella, their two fur kids, made a sweet showing at the beach - don't you just want to pet those little cheeks?

We can't wait for your wedding day, Lyndsey and Jamie!

The Hammond Family by Suzanne Price

We had so much fun trouncing around the woods and the beach with this energetic, adorable bunch. I'm sure it's not like this everyday, but you two sure seem to make parenting three young kids look easy. We loved spending time with you! 

Evan + Alexa | An elegant Ohio wedding by Suzanne Price

We had been looking forward to this wedding for SO long. After a fun jaunt to Brooklyn to meet in person for the first time and make some engagement photos, we knew we were in for a day filled with fashion, aesthetic wonder, kindness, and elegance.

What truly made the day were the INCREDIBLE friends and family this couple has. The wedding was in Ohio primarily because Alexa's grandmother resides here. She couldn't travel for the big day, so they came to her. I think we were all shedding more than a few tears as they shared many an embrace. 

So great, you two. Bravo!

Make your own weekend. by Suzanne Price

Self employment may seem glamorous (and yes, I'm fully aware of its perks) but more often than not I'll find myself working 50 or 60 hour weeks and ignoring all the signs that it's time for a little exercise and relaxation. 

We originally booked this trip to Hocking Hills for a photo shoot, but when it needed to be rescheduled, we decided to take advantage of a few days away. No internet. No cell service. Just the four of us. I chose a beautiful little place called Wyandot Woods, and I'm SO glad I did. Canoes at our front door, sweet little fire pit, lots of places to walk, and close proximity to the state parks in the area. I'd love to go back and rent out all six cabins with family or friends!


Pam + Jeff | A Vibrant New Orleans Wedding by Suzanne Price

Pam and I had a connection before we met. She was the english teacher for Suginoko and Suzumekko preschools in Japan after I moved back to the states in 2008. We lived in the same apartment, taught in the same classrooms, and share the same child/mother bond with the matriarch of Suginoko, Gota Sensei. When we finally met our spirits matched like magnets, and I was just so thrilled when she asked me to document her marriage to sweet, smart, and utterly hilarious Jeff! 

We started off our coverage the night before with Pam and Jeff's impressive rehearsal dinner (this is reserved for ANOTHER journal entry) and continued on the next morning to the beautiful Benachi House for a day of celebration steeped in the particular southern charm that only New Orleans can offer. Take a look for yourselves!

Kendel + Paul | A Lush Cleveland Engagement Session by Suzanne Price

Heavy hung the canopy of blue
Shade my eyes and I can see you
White was the light
That shines through the dress that you wear

-- Green is the Color by Pink Floyd

Kendel led me to this secret little swath of lush forest greens and inspiration ran wild! She did her own hair (incredible plait, yes?) and made the lovely little floral adornment. We ended the session at Rocky River Park where this couple had their first date (prom!) a decade ago! Paul and Kendel brought along the scarf that he gave her when he proposed. See that gorgeous ring? It was custom made by the local and crazy talented Liza Michelle Jewelry.
