Welcome

Wedding, family, and pet photography, my family and friends, my dog and cats, the open road and good music, mountains, Maryland, being warm, adventure. That's what I love. This blog features images from my wedding and family photography business, Susannah Storch Photography. If you like what you see, be sure to visit my wedding photography site, my children and families photography site and my pet photography site for additional work. Thanks for stopping by.

Back on an absolutely perfect weather day in January, Jessica and Karl were married at Longmont’s Faith Baptist Church. Their ceremony was beautiful, and the reception area was transformed by amazing details that the bride and family put together–rustic tree trunks with bird cages, elegant candles, a lovely message on the chalkboard. (If I ever need design inspiration for a party, Jessica knows how to pull together a tasteful theme, that’s for sure.) These details pulled together by the couple’s loved ones made for one of the more meaningful send offs into a new marriage that I have witnessed. I too wish Jessica and Karl and happy and wonderful marriage.

One other thing I particularly love about this couple is that Karl is in the military, and he is stationed at the Pax River Air Station down in Southern Maryland, not far from where I went to college. The odds of bumping into Coloradans who know where Lexington Park, Maryland is pretty slim! (In fact, the odds of bumping into Marylanders who know where Lexington Park, Maryland is is also somewhat slim!) I wish them luck exploring all that Southern Maryland has to offer…oysters and other seafood, water, Point Lookout, Calvert Cliffs State Park, the Green Door, Tiki Bar…

I cannot wait until Alex and Jennifer’s Lyons Farmette wedding in just a couple more months from now. A great couple, beautiful scenery, and good food…it is going to be my kind of wedding! Meanwhile, I decided to post some images from their fall engagement session at Chautauqua to tide me over. I am so excited for your big day you two!

My favorite family portrait session location is one where the kids can play and be themselves. In this session, I headed to my clients’ home to capture the boys playing and to get some more traditional portraits. I had so much fun catching up with the kids and their parents, who I have been lucky enough to photograph over the years!

When I first met Tara and Kyle at a coffee shop in Longmont, I already couldn’t wait for their fall wedding in Breckenridge. Tara was super energetic and so enthusiastic about her wedding, and Kyle was laid-back and seemed like such a great guy…you could tell it was going to be a great celebration of love. And months later, when the day finally rolled around, it didn’t disappoint. Tara looked stunning in her gown. Kyle looked happy. Tara, with the help of Marilee & Grace, had so many amazing details including sunglasses for the guests during the ceremony, a candy bar complete with “Big Hunk” taffy bars, personal photos decorating the grand fireplace, and even a penny farthing bicycle as a gift for the groom. The elegant rustic style fit the atmosphere at the Lodge and Spa at Breckenridge perfectly. As always, thanks to Tara and Kyle for sharing their special day with me, thanks to other vendors who helped make this an amazing wedding, and enjoy the photos! And one last special thank you to Shannon McQueen Photography who second shot and helped run the photo booth!
