"Susan is so talented! We used her for our engagement photos and were BEYOND pleased with the outcome! We were able to use the stunning photos to create our "Save the Date" cards and even used the photos to create out wedding website. She took the time to really understand the look/style we were going for as well as getting to know our personalities ahead of time. This made us feel very comfortable withal shooting. Susan is very prompt, responsive, easy to talk to and accommodating. We highly recommend Charming Colour Photography for any photography needs!"

"Susan from Charming Colour Photography did an excellent job on the photography at my daughter's wedding. Her pictures were beautiful. She did all the expected posed pictures in an efficient manner and also took many spontaneous/more casual shots that were outstanding. She was easy to work with and her prices are very reasonable. I strongly recommend Charming Colour Photography for your San Diego County wedding."

"Susan is so professional and her photos are beautiful! I asked her to take our engagement photos and I am so happy with the photos. She was extremely friendly and made me and my husband feel comfortable in front of a camera. If you don't know how to pose, she'll even give you advice on what to do so you look great for the pictures!

She was also extremely flexible and understanding even though we were late, and for her price-she's basically a dream come true for someone looking for great quality photos at an affordable price. I'm definitely asking for her again in the future if I want more photos!"

"Susan is not only an amazing photographer, but an amazing person as well. She's the sweetest and makes you feel so comfortable. My husband and I hired her for our wedding and did an engagement session as well. She is truly an artist! The pictures are so beautiful and we love how natural they look. She even makes you laugh during the photoshoots to get pictures with real emotions and smiles. She was especially amazing during our wedding. We had a couple jokers in our wedding party that could have annoyed her, but she totally went along with it and actually used the energy to make all of us have fun and enjoy the moment. I'm sure she walked miles that day, as she would never just stand around; always making sure she got a picture of every moment and even the smallest details."

"I'm an event planner and I contracted Susan to do a photo shoot of a 90th birthday party celebration. Susan has an easy going and very personable personality. She did an amazing job and guests enjoyed her presence. I would definitely hire her again!!"

Martha S.

"Susan was simply amazing! She was free the first weekend I was interested in. We couldn't find our way to the location and she came and got us! She didn't deduct anythime from the shoot because of that. It was our first time getting our pictures but she was so easy and directed us to make us look good. Then the next day she already sent us a few pictures and that night we receieved the rest. They were all beautiful also! I am in love with them. She truly did an amazing job. Definitely will be using her throughout my pregnancy and when my child arrives. I wish I knew more people in the city to recommend them to her."
