About Me

Susan Crichton-Stuart 

I am a Cape Town based Wedding Photographer who enjoys being behind her camera, making people feel comfortable and laugh while I capture their memories. I find my portfolio is filled with all the things of life: and in particular people!

Weddings and Travel are my two Passions. 
My love of photography stems from traveling to exciting new places and capturing the locals, their environments along with all the colours, tastes and smells. The freedom to express and photograph what I am experiencing is pure heaven.

I have found that Weddings are just like traveling: “There is the chaotic run-up before the day, then the calmness that comes over as “the plane begins down the runway” and then the absolute jubilation that the journey has begun! And this is what I love the most: it is such a happy moment. And I LOVE that I get to share and capture it.”

I know how important it is to have intimate, personal reminders of your day and I strive to capture these moments so you can look back and remember them with fondness and love. After all, long after the Wedding all you will have are your memories and your photographs to remind you of that special day.

My passion for photography has come with a fascination of watching life, people and how it all interacts – the camera just gives me an excuse to capture it all. If I should be so lucky to travel and to photograph a wedding, all for the better!

Families and Newborn Photography:
I thoroughly enjoy photographing gorgeous little babies, siblings who dote and the shear abandon that only a child knows in front of a camera. Mom and Dad can tag along too. :)

Black and White Photography:
I am drawn again and again to Black and White Imagery. Ted Grant’s saying: “… when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!”

I would love to hear from you, to hear your story, to get excited with you in the preparations and of course to be given the opportunity to capture some small part of it.

I hope you enjoy viewing my photographs as much as I thoroughly enjoyed creating them! I look forward to hearing from you.
