I’m based out of Arizona, but most definitely available for travel. And I love serving the world through my work, and by extension also encouraging and supporting others in their personal journeys to growth, self-acceptance, and in their own relationships. I don’t want to just be your photographer, I want to be your friend, I want to lift you, hear you, see you, and know you!
ME IN A NUTSHELL
"I AM GOING TO MAKE EVERYTHING AROUND ME BEAUTIFUL- THAT WILL BE MY LIFE"
At my core, I'm a lightworker, traveler, moon worshiper, thought-provoker, self-awareness & mental health advocate, learner, photographer, macaroon loving gal with an incurable penchant for loving people well. And I absolutely love what I do.
Hi, friend! I specialize in Tucson Wedding photography and my full name is Sue Ellen! Antiquing is my JAM! Most days you can find me drinking tea, playing with my cats and dog, hiking, watercoloring, photographing the besssst clients in the world, and maybe even indulging in some historical fiction films/tv shows like Outlander, The Witcher and Downton Abbey.
THINGS I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT:
My family and constantly digging deeper into the ever-evolving and profound journey to self-awareness and love. I’m also passionate about TEA! TRAVEL! WITCHY MAGIC! YÔGA! MOVEMENT CULTURE! ANTIQUING! CREATING ART! LAVENDER EVERYTHING!
…But most of all, just simply enjoying life through the little things!
And as for my photography style, it’s deeply rooted in genuine connection and unposed moments. I don’t want to capture some unrealistic version of who you are. All that matters to me is the experience, the fun, the MAGIC and the results that every #SAcouple feels when they look back through their photographs. I’m super grateful beyond words that the universe has allowed me to work with some pretty stellar people throughout the years that project nothing but kindness, thankfulness and sincere joy and send only the highest good and genuine love back into the world.
I want you to have the same experience they’ve had. I want to be your wedding photographer. I am super excited to hear from you, so let’s chat and let’s get your wedding date on my calendar before someone else books me and snags your wedding date!
"IF EVERYTHING AROUND YOU SEEMS DARK, LOOK AGAIN, YOU MAY BE THE LIGHT"
ONE OF MY CREATIVE OUTLETS
Believe it or not, watercoloring has taught me the importance of letting go.
FUELS MY SOUL
Travel for me is pretty sacred. It fuels my soul. It fills my heart. To travel and see new places, know different cultures, and be surrounded by nature or historical sites is one of my favorite things to do! So far I have traveled to Egypt (x2), Turkey (x2), Greece, England, Mexico, Isreal, and various states within the US too!
MY BABY VIKING CAT
It should come as no surprise if you've been following me for a while that I'm a certified cat lady. I grew up with cats and love to name them after artists or architects or historical figures.
I love seeing photographs of them throughout the years. This is part of my WHY behind becoming a photographer. Those printed memories for me are EVERYTHING.
Moving my body through yoga, dance, or locomotion is essential for me to be able to be connected to myself and the world around me.
I love sitting and observing details that others don't notice. The way he looks at you when you're not looking, the tenderness with which you stroke his cheek, the birds in the sky, soft breeze flowing in your hair, the romantic way he holds you close...
Getting to know people and their unique love stories is one of my ultimate honors and joy. Love is magical. It's complex. It's rich, it's full. It's high and low, it stretches you, it humbles your ego. It expands your heart and supports you in becoming your highest self. It inspires me beyond words and to be able to capture peoples magic love is a true honor for me.
When you think about true love, what comes to mind? Part of it for me consists of those little moments that fill your soul. It’s those moments that make you want to pull in a little closer and stay out under the starry night sky a little longer. It’s true intimacy and a willingness to lean into vulnerability. It’s raw, undone. It’s perfectly imperfect. It’s that kind of love that washes away the dust of fear, love that recognizes the fire in your soul and celebrates it. I want to capture that for you.
So, if you’re into cozy sweaters, yoga pants and messy hair, or if you 100% ugly cried during the Gilmore Girls revival and weren’t ashamed… we could be best friends. If you love flowy dresses that move in the wind, exploring and adventure, images that evoke real emotion, rare vintage finds, birkenstocks, soulful romance, magick!, wellness, spiritual journeys, weird stuff, laughing until you cry/pee your pants, yummy earthy neutrals, or dance parties to Taylor Swift… slide into my DM’s and send me a message!!
