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.

I was excited to photograph Shannon and Michael’s wedding last March. They got married on a snowy day at the Fiske Planetarium on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, which is also where Shannon’s parents got married. The ceremony included a star show after the vows. The reception took place at a private residence in the foothills. It was a unique wedding that I thoroughly enjoyed.

When Cassandra and Jennifer approached me about photographing their wedding, I was very intrigued. These two sisters were getting married at Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby, Colorado. On the same day. After spending time in Japan teaching English, both sisters had fallen in love with amazing Japanese men. And they all decided to share their wedding day. Hence the double wedding. Two “getting into dress” moments, two “first looks”, two “I do’s.” Their wedding also featured home-made Mexican food that was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, a Japanese exercise, a Mexican wedding dance, awesome china that the mom scoured around to find, a fun photo wall, a sweet slideshow…it was a fun, family-oriented wedding tailored to the sisters. I am so glad to be a part of their day. Congratulations again Cassandra and Yuichi and Jennifer and Kazu! I’ve had fun reliving your special day, and I hope you do too.

As I constantly mention, I LOVE photographing the same families over and over. Not only is it fun to chat with the parents to see how their year has been, but it is amazing to connect with the kiddos and see how they have grown! Plus, since lots of children don’t necessarily LOVE having their photo taken, it is nice for them to be familiar with the photographer…having a history definitely helps with their comfort level.

I have photographed the family in this blog post several times…and these boys keep getting more fun and more handsome!

I love, love the Lyons Farmette! There is such a special vibe to the place…the staff are incredibly nice and friendly, the scenery is gorgeous, the animals and Airstream are fun…I feel so happy and relaxed as I photograph events there. And it was no different for Alex and Jennifer’s wedding.

The couple had a lovely summer evening wedding complete with a food truck, bluegrass band, lemonade, and lawn games. Does a celebration of love get any better than that? Just some of the unique details included a world map highlighting locations the couple had traveled to guided guests to their assigned table; photos of this traveling couple in various vacation locales strung on a massive tree; and a wooden letter “C” (the first letter of their last name) for guests to sign.
