I guess becoming fearless came before I even became a photographer. I went to college and graduate school in the medical sciences and worked in medicine for 10 years before I took a class on film photography by chance. What came after that one semester was a whirlwind; I quit my job and became a photographer with little more than a camera and a lot to prove.  
What drives my interest in photography is finding genuine emotion- all of it- the ecstasy, the loneliness, the apprehension, the silliness, the nameless surge of feelings that well up in your chest when you look at a scene. It is not so unlike the experience of working in the emergency room or in transplant, both of which I had. 
I travel widely and specialize in two genres- classical music performance and wedding photography. I am forever exploring, forever searching for the next moment.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I’m in CT but travel widely with my husband who is a musician about 100-150 days of the year.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I began my business in 2022, but have also been working with a destination wedding studio since 2018. I have photographed a few dozen as the main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style is vivid with true-to-life colors. I would say that I mostly document what I see in a journalistic way and will direct posing for formal portraits. For candids, I take a lot of inspiration from street photography, where I watch a scene unfold and anticipate when people will come together for amazing reactions.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I’m very easy-going and adaptably outgoing or inobstrusive depending on the situation. I am used to photographing with a completely silent shutter from my experience as a classical music photographer.  
In my spare time, I love to play in chamber music groups and freelance as a violinist in local groups.

Sue was truly amazing.......an incredibly talented and gifted photographer. She has an artist's eye and was able to capture the beauty and essence of the most meaningful moments of our wedding day. She responded to our inquiries very quickly and professionally and was a joy to work with. She covered the entire event from start to finish in a most unobtrusive way......the mark of a true professional! And, finally, all of this at a very reasonable price.
We can not recommend Sue enough. We had a small intimate wedding and Sue basically fit in with the family which was great. Prior to the wedding I had some specific photos I wanted and she nailed it. Lastly, She got us our pictures in less than 2 weeks which was a lovely touch
I dabble quite a bit in photography myself (it's not a job, but a side hustle, for sure), I am very picky when it comes to photographers. Sue was the obvious choice for my wedding. Her style is so wonderfully refined and polished (but not overly so—), and I am over the moon about how the photographs turned out from our New York elopement. The pictures are so iconic—forever grateful. (And how can I not give an extra, 6th star on this review?!)—seriously—she goes the extra mile. Cannot recommend her more highly—!!!!
