Q&A -get to know me and
my business a little!
How would you describe yourself?Passionate about all things that make me happy, and that goes from my business to my green juices 😂
How long have you been working as a photographer?I started a few years back with casual photoshoots, learning photography mostly on my own, but received great help and mentoring from a wonderful photographer here in town, Nick Tillinghast (check out his business too). And before I knew, here I am!
Are you open to travel?YES !! I love to travel and have been to Australia, the UK, many states in the USA, and was born and raised in Brazil! If you are looking for a photographer who is adventurous, free spirit and who loves to wanderlust, I'm right here for you and would love to capture your special occasion! Open to travel in the country or abroad, just reach out and we can plan a photoshoot package that fits your needs. Destination elopement, destination engagements, create your own destination adventure, a retreat, a girls trip, a proposal, a family getaway ... you name it! Just spend time creating memories and leave the capturing them with me! I offer an entire weekend of services as well!
What happens after our photoshoot?Right after our photoshoot I'll begin working on the photos, and will stay connected and in communication so you know exactly what is going on. I have become friends with all my clients and our connection goes beyond the business! Once the photos are ready, we'll decide what's the best method of delivery for your needs and what your package includes. And then we'll plan a bite to eat, to grab a tea, or meet up at some events here in town!
What about the copyrights?My business, Sue Plati Photography, owns the copyrights and I will retain the rights to use any of the images we collaborated on. What does that mean? That means I retain the rights to use the photos and how they are displayed, such as to promote my business in ways I find most fitting. They may be used in social media, a website like this, a book, magazine, to name a few ways. All the cool stuff that helps others like yourself see my work and consider me as your photographer! Any concern, please feel free to reach out.
What to Expect?
Those who have chosen me as their photographer will share how I keep things very casual, very comfortable during our shoots. I'm very laid back & 100% present and on it, but I don't like to rush or feel rushed. Taking our time allows us to connect, to play, and to bounce ideas. This is a collaboration between us, to create memories as we enjoy the moment, instead of forcing a moment for the sake of a photoshoot. For this reason all services begin at a minimum of 1 hour.

A FEW WORDS
Hi, I’m Sue! Welcome to my internet home of all the beautiful places & people I’ve been fortunate enough to capture! Photography is my passion & I'm grateful I get to pursue it & honoured to share a little of you & your family’s journey as I capture your special moments in life!
Being behind the camera makes me truly happy! To find that special connection between my lenses and who/what is in my focus at a certain moment or photoshoot, not only capturing a photo, but the energy behind it, creating an environment where it is comfortable, casual, and everyone involved can feel free and be themselves, being able to remove the 'camera' part of the shoot and find themselves open is why I love what I do! But...I am quite camera shy, although I've been working hard on changing that!
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions & I look forward to collaborating with you!
