Last week I was fortunate enough to photograph, partake in cooking lessons and dine with 20 of the top event planners in Chicago! At The Chopping Block (Merchandise Mart) the shop, kitchens, and dining areas are just spectacular. This would be a GREAT place to have a bachelor/bachelorette party! The beer, champagne, and wine was flowing. Guaranteed fun for your group, especially foodies.

When Jon & LIsa planned their wedding last fall it was kismet that the full moon would show up that night. Particularly since their reception was on the shores of Lake Michigan. I really enjoyed designing their album!

The Morton Arboretum is a lovely spot for portraiture (not to mention weddings). This outdoor nature area boasts 16 miles of trails interspersed with ponds, artwork, gardens, and a plethora of trees and other structures to use as backdrop. Congratulations to all the engaged couples out there~

An unsolicited testimonial from one of my lovelies...many thanks for appreciating my work! As seen on www.theknot.com and www.weddingchannel.com
Susan Ryan is the BEST!
I don't know how she did it but Susan took over 500 pictures at my wedding and I can't find any bad ones! I'm usually very critical of pictures of myself but I have nothing bad to say about the photographs Susan took. The angles are so natural, the images are not posed and the lighting is perfect in all of them. It's difficult to get a good picture of my husband but she managed to make that happen too. I am extremely happy with the photos. Everyone I sent the link to was overly complimenting me on how great they are and, in particular, how great my photographer was. Susan also took our engagement pictures which are just as fabulous as the wedding pictures! Susan is so easy going and comfortable to be around. She takes care of everything. I didn't even know she was there half the time. I can't say enough about how much I love the pictures! For a day as important as your wedding day, I highly recommend Susan Ryan for your wedding photographer. Susan, thank you!!
