Susan Pardys Photography
About this pro
Susan covered my daughter's bat mitzvah in April 2017, from the early morning synagogue ceremony to the wee hours of the night time dance party! She was on time for everything, had a great assistant and, best of all, the photos she took were extraordinary! We have a photo memory album that is just amazing, with photos of us (the hosts/parents) and family and friends at each stage of the day. She even captured photos of the centerpieces and small details that we all worked so hard on, so I could remember everything. I would highly recommend Susan Pardys for any event large or small, as she is really easy to communicate with. She responds right away, either via email or telephone, which is also helpful.Mar 2, 2018
On time, professional photographer who has an eye for detail. Thanks Susan, you're terrific.Jan 16, 2017Verified
Susan did the photography for my baby shower. She was absolutely amazing. She arrived early to the shower and went over how I wanted the day to go. She was very personable. She blended well with my family and friends. She was more like a family friend taking pictures than a stranger. She took a million pictures. I also loved the way she gave instructions to us on how to pose. She took the best candid shots ever. We will be laughing at these pictures for a long time. I would definitely book her again for future events .Jul 2, 2016Verified
Susan was a pleasure to work with from Day 1. She is very professional and clearly outlines all the details necessary for the contract. Her pricing is very reasonable and her quality outstanding. I plan to hire her for all future events. Thank you Susan!Nov 2, 2015Verified
My sister was looking for a photographer for her son's Bar Mitzvah. Susan was one of the first to respond to my Thumbtack request for a photographer and by far had the best portfolio. She was very responsive to our questions and pleasant to deal with. She was familiar with the Synagog and the rules and restrictions for shooting there. She was very personable and professional and the shots come out great! Thanks Susan.Nov 1, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I am flexible with my pricing based on type of event, hours spent photographing and in post-production. As a guide, for photographing a bar or bat mitzvah, including 2 hr portrait session, 4 hr reception, jpg images, and a large custom album is about $1,800-$2,100. Or photographing a 3hr. event with jpg images is about $400-$550.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I listen to what the client is planning and hoping for. We either meet in person or talk on the phone. I make sure I understand the details, then I send a written proposal. I keep open to what the client wants until the last photo is taken.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BFA in photography from the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. I began my career as a photojournalist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Almanac Newspapers and the City Paper in Wash., DC. I learned advanced Photoshop at University of the Arts.
