about us

Susan Ryan has been photographing professionally for over 20 years. Based in Chicago, she has established herself as one of the city's top photojournalists in wedding photography.

Noted for her artistry and poetic vision, she is celebrated for skillfully portraying storytelling moments while her subjects may not even be aware of the camera's presence.

Unique hand bound albums, creative portfolio boxes, original greeting cards and framing services are all available through her studio. An online viewing gallery with highlights from your wedding day is posted shortly after the event for your family and friends to enjoy. Also included is the final album design, using your favorite images, to create a stunning keepsake book.

Along with her wedding assignments, she has become an established portrait artist specializing in newborns and young children. Susan has an excellent reputation with both clients and vendors alike.

Susan's images can be seen in various wedding publications including Bride's Magazine, Wedding Bells and she is featured on the WeddingChannel.com. She has also been published in Modern Bride, Pioneer Press Newspapers, Chicago Reader, Today's Chicago Woman, and Pride magazine. Her corporate clients include WTTW, AT&T, McDermott, Will & Emery, In Style Magazine, Rolling Stone, Claire's, Guinness Import Co., and Robert Mondavi Winery.
