Capturing the Moment • Naturally Romantic

Hiring a wedding photographer is one of the most personal decisions you will make during the wedding planning process. Choosing the person who will be responsible for telling your unique love story requires full confidence in their ability to candidly capture great moments of the big day.

This story will have the most amazing characters, a beautiful setting, and it will undoubtedly have the most incredible ending. There are family and friends who will experience your story through the photographs we take, some you know today and some who will come along as life surges forward.

I hope my 20 years of experience, background in art and love of photography is evident in my photographs, and you can feel safe trusting your story to me and my dedicated wedding photography team.

Susan Helgeson is an established wedding and portrait photographer located in Santa Cruz, California. She has a natural talent for capturing the precious micro-moments of special events such as weddings, anniversaries, reunions, bar and bat mitvahs, parties, gatherings and school yearbooks.

Her "invisible woman" photo-journalistic style allows wedding guests to be themselves as she unobtrusively captures the most precious and candid moments through the lens of high quality professional cameras and gear.

She can be regularly found working at Santa Cruz County wedding venues such as Hollins House, Seascape Resort, Chaminade, Sesnon House, Coconut Grove, Dream Inn, Highlands Park, Quail Hollow, Kennolyn Camp, Peachwoods Inn, Cafe Bittersweet and Shadowbrook.

Outside of Santa Cruz County, Susan also often travels for weddings and events to Monterey, Carmel, Los Gatos and Santa Clara County.
