Claudia Madrigal

I was looking for a Photographer for my wedding celebration in my country Guatemala. When I almost gave up searching but still hadn’t decided what I was looking for since I am very picky about pictures.She is genuinely kind and easy to work with. Her photography style is so natural and pretty. "

"I can’t say enough how thankful I am she accepted to work with us.

Marie Choffel

She is super outgoing and professional and put us at ease. We were nervous because we have never had professional pictures before but Susan made the experience fun! I couldn’t recommend her enough!

"The photos are timeless and we will have these memories forever!

the process

001. discover

We'll kick things off by getting acquainted on an Introductory Call. This is a great way to see if we're the perfect fit and gives me the opportunity to hear all about the vision you have for your big day!

002. plan

Once we have your date locked in,  we'll plan the logistics of location, time of year and weather conditions, permits, and create a vision board.

003. your big day!

I will be with you while being in the background to document the spontaneous, authentic moments that unfold throughout your elopement. From getting ready, to the hikes, and the "I do's."

Ready to document your dream elopement together?


Do you travel?

Yes! I drive up to 3 hours from my main location or fly to you. Travel is included in my elopement packages.

How many images will I receive?

You will receive at least 400 retouched images. I don’t believe in withholding images if I have more. Whatever images I find worthy of sharing, I will send :)

How long is your turnaround?

I am very careful and selective in my editing process and make sure that everything is seamless before I deliver your gallery. My turnaround can take 6-8 weeks for weddings (8-10 during busier seasons). I always send sneaks within 24-48 hours so you can enjoy the moments from your big day and share the photos with your loved ones!

What should we wear for photos?

Depending on the direction of elopement we are taking, I’d say what resonates best for you. If we are hiking, we can hike to the location in normal clothes and change once we get to our location. Either way, I would wear proper shoes/attire to protect yourself and get to your destination safely.

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely. Your photos are an investment and life continues as you are wedding planning. If a payment plan is needed to make it all work, we can work together.

Ready to turn your love story into timeless works of art?

What if we need to raincheck or cancel?

I understand that we’re not always in control of every circumstance under the sun. Reach out to me! Let me know as soon as possible so we can work out a plan.

Do you travel internationally?

Yes. I will go wherever you’d like to go.

do we need a second shooter?

A second shooter is an add on! Some weddings may or may not require a second shooter. We can chat and see if a second shooter is needed based on the details in your Intro Call.

Do you include film?

Film coverage is an add on based on the amount of rolls used. A good and trusted second shooter is required for film. Digital photos have the advantage of taking many photos quickly whereas film requires for preparation, assessment, and slowing down for that moment.

Do you look for the second shooter to hire?

I definitely do - I am very selective with my second shooters as they are trusted assistance for the day. They have a big responsibility to support me and we work as a team to make the experience as seamless as possible.
