About Us

While passion is important, we take our responsibilities very seriously, and our experience, enthusiasm and empathy ensure that you are completely relaxed and able to enjoy being photographed on your special day.

Our style is romantic, creative, and timeless. We capture all the wonderful emotions of your day and preserve them with beautiful, tender portraits, carefully observed candid images (oh, those priceless looks of love, and the moments you have no idea about until you see them on your gallery!). All your thoughtfully chosen special details, which have cost so much and which by the end of the day will be packed away or eaten, are beautifully photographed as ‘fine art’.

We love weddings!

We are all renowned for our warmth and sense of fun, which, when we work together, results in a fabulous set of images for you. As women, we can multi-task and are always happy to down tools and help if needs be!
We love to keep in touch with our clients and document their growing families and special anniversaries – we believe in love!

Based in Gloucestershire, we are more than happy to travel nationally or internationally to photograph your wedding.

Susie 

I adored capturing pictures of my two beautiful daughters as they grew up, and to become a better photographer I went to college and earned a First Class (BA) Hons Degree … my passion for photography was born. Combining this with my love of people - especially on such a glorious occasion as a wedding day - is a dream!

Every bride, every groom, every wedding is of course unique - my job is to respect your wishes, to help you to feel confident and relaxed in front of the camera, and to provide you with images which not only bring back your memories of the day, but create many, many more.

As important as your images, is your experience with your photographer on your special day. I’m delighted that so many of my couples tell me I’ve been “an absolute joy”; that I was their “angel of the day, the best wedding photographer anyone could hope for”. I really care about helping things to run smoothly - “you were so kind and caring during the lead up to the service. It was so nice having you at home with me while I was getting ready and you were brilliant at organising us all to get to the church on time. Getting dressed was such a special moment for me and I loved sharing it with you. You were so unobtrusive and you blended completely into our day - everyone has sung your praises and it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know you.”

When photographing portraits or boudoir, I portray the real you, looking comfortable, authentic and engaging, and create images which celebrate individuality - and I make the experience fun!

Hatty

I’m delighted to introduce Hatty as a principal photographer for Susie Mackie Photography. Hatty has been working with me for 6 years, both as a second shooter and as a principal photographer when we had two wedding bookings for the same day. Everyone has been so thrilled with Hatty’s work - not only her stunning photos but the way in which she conducts herself on the day, made evident in the super testimonials below.

Hatty's work is a reflection of her personality - she brings happiness and warmth to every occasion. She is unobtrusive and on your wedding day and will help you relax and enjoy every single element. 

“I have a real passion for the beauty and romance of a wedding day. My photography is all about capturing the moments - portraying the love, intimacy and emotion between a couple. 

I earned a First Class (BA) Hons Degree in Photography and have worked as a professional photographer for 8 years, specialising in reportage wedding photography, capturing the story within a moment.”

 Testimonials

"Hatty is such a fabulous photographer, she took some gorgeous photos of the groomsmen before our wedding - and she made sure everyone was at the church on time too! We are so thrilled with the images and it was a joy to have her in our 'wedding team' for the day. Thank you Hatty!" 

“Hatty, we can not thank you enough for being such a huge part of our wedding day. You helped me smile and be calm throughout the day, were so unobtrusive and professional when organising the group photographs and you made us feel so at ease when capturing our couple shots. We cannot wait to view our photographs ….. Wow! The photographs, as expected are breath taking, thank you so very much, we certainly will be recommending you.”

“We have sat a sobbed through our wedding photographs, Hatty they are truly amazing - you have managed to capture every element of our special day. Thank you!” 

“Thank you so much for the photographs, they are all we imagined they would be and so much more. You have managed to capture so many emotions throughout our amazing day and now we can cherish them forever.”

“Adrian and I are totally overjoyed by the photographs of our wedding day - Hatty they are incredible. There are so many images of the fun and emotional moments that you managed to take by being so discrete and sensitive throughout the service and speeches. Our couple photos are so full of love and happiness we just LOVE them.”

“Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Our wedding photos are perfect! You have such a talent and we are delighted that we chose you to be our wedding photographer.” 

 

Viktoria

I’m extremely happy to introduce Viktoria as a principal photographer for Susie Mackie Photography. Viktoria has been shooting weddings with me for 3 years, and like Hatty, also shoots weddings for her own wedding couples. She is wonderfully calm and a delight to be around - when she works with me everyone loves her and you will too. 

“My love for weddings is a combination of my love for a great story, a craving for lovely things, and my deep desire to create beauty. I enjoy discovering all the fabulous venues, seeing all the decorations and little details prepared with so much care, capturing all the smiles and hugs and kisses, and just in general, being part of a happy happy day. I stay in the background for most of the time and capture events as they unfold during the day - the tears during the ceremony, the laughter during the speeches. You can just relax and be yourselves, and I will make sure all the important moments (and the moments in-between) are documented.”

"Oh Viktoria! You have absolutely made my day/week/month! The photos are absolutely STUNNING!! I am so happy with them. I'm absolutely over the moon!! They're gorgeous and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!  I am so pleased. I cannot wait to see what you can do on the wedding day itself. (I was so worried about the photography but these are even better than I imagined!" xxxxxxxxxx

"The service Viktoria offers is first class. The engagement shoot helped us get to know Vik better and get used to the camera and is a fabulous addition to the package. At our wedding, Vik was the perfect balance between not imposing on our day or making any of our guests feel awkward by her presence and getting in there and getting the photos that mean our wedding day is perfectly documented. We got our images before the time agreed and beautifully packaged. It was a real treat viewing them and we felt she really captured the mood and ambiance of the day. We will definitely be coming back for future photo sessions!"

"Thank you so much for all your hard work, we absolutely loved having you at our wedding and couldn't be happier with the images!"
