For nearly 30 years, Susan Wcislo has dedicated her career to capturing and preserving people's special moments in life, whether it's an engagement, marriage, new child, or anniversary. As the owner of Wcislo Photography, she's been able to turn her passion into a lucrative business that serves both Massachusetts and Connecticut.
"I have been privileged to capture life's 'remember when' moments for my clients since 1988," Wcislo said. "It has truly been a dream come true. To me, photography is so much more than capturing some images from behind the lens. I strive to capture the emotion behind your memorable moments and do anything and everything possible to ensure that you're happy in the process and even more so with the end result."
A recipient of Wedding Wire's Couples' Choice award for 2017, Wcislo Photography has photographed special events including weddings, graduation parties, baby showers, birthdays, and more. Wcislo also specializes in session photography for maternity, newborns, senior photos, and even pet photography, as pets are part of the family, too.
"We have also done a limited amount of commercial photography over the years as well," she said. "Our specialty has been mostly bridal and wedding photography."
Wcislo likes to get to know each client personally before arranging a photography session, so that their photos will be just as unique as the individuals themselves.
"The best part about being a photographer is that I am invited into the lives of those with whom I work," she said. "It is truly a gift and honor to do so! I get to capture life in its various and beautiful forms; new beginnings, family bonds, first years, journeys, adventures and so much more."
Although it may be tempting to have an amateur photographer such as a friend or family member shoot an important event or session, Wcislo warns that there are many risks to doing so. A trained professional photographer knows how to adjust the lens and camera settings for unpredictable changing weather conditions, such as an overcast sky. There's also the risk that they could get ill and not have a back-up person to cover the event.
With Wcislo Photography, clients not only get Wcislo's hands-on expertise, but flexible package options including printed proofs and a disk containing all digital images so that their memories will live on. She also only uses the latest technology and equipment and professional lab for the highest quality prints. Wcislo also knows how to help her subjects become relaxed and at ease in front of the camera, and offer guidance on poses so that photos are as captivating as possible.
Wcislo is available for shoots seven days a week, and can be reached via her website to answer any questions.
"We provide services that will give our clients a superior product that will last forever," she said. "I do my best to give each photography session my full heart, soul, energy, and creativity. Working with me, you can expect quality photos, every time."
