Meet Susan Stripling | Wedding Photographer

Author: The Printique Team

Nestled in the heart of Brooklyn, is a dynamic powerhouse of a photographer whose unbridled passion for her artistic take wedding photography is carving a path for other photographers to follow her lead, meet Susan Stripling.

Susan has been photographing weddings, portraits, and theatre for more than 20 years. She’s won multiple awards at the WPPI 16×20 print competition including the Grand Award in Wedding Photojournalism and the Grand Award in Weddings, and she holds the prestigious Triple Master Status. She is a passionate educator for Photo Plus, WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International), and PPA (Professional Photographers of America).

This year we were inspired by Susan and teamed up with her at WPPI to showcase some of her favorite Printique products at her platform class Incorporating AI into Your Wedding Photography Life. As exciting as AI can be and help photographers, there are some things that still need to be handcrafted and not automated. Here are some of Susan’s favorite Printique handmade, premium wedding products.

There is such beauty in a well-crafted, handmade book.  These albums will stand the test of time and be in my clients’ hands and their family’s hands for years to come. – Susan Stripling

Large Leather Layflat Wedding Album

Susan’s photography style is modern with dramatic lighting. One of Susan’s favorite print products that showcases her work the most beautifully is the 12×15 Metallic Leather Layflat Wedding Album. Her images span 30 inches across the album. With no gutter, her images are able to be impactful. She uses a minimalist design letting the images tell the story and with emotion. She keeps a simple debossing on the cover, chose square corners and no edge gilding so it would not conflict with the metallic of the leather. The sheen on the cover is quite subtle, and lends itself well to Susan’s style of photography.

Acrylic Blocks

The acrylic blocks are such a unique product!  They’re both classic and modern at the same time, which fits right into my clients’ wants and needs.- Susan Stripling

And for gifts for her couples, she adores the 2×2 inch acrylic blocks. It’s a little extra touch she gifts her clients, that make a BIG impact. These tiny  HD acrylic photo blocks are stunning, crisp, and bring out the best of any photo or artwork. The blocks are about an inch thick, and come as small as 2×2 and go up to 8×10. The thickness of the blocks allow them to stand on their own and can easily be put on a shelf or desk, and they can easily be moved around your home as your decor changes throughout the years.

Glass Photos

Also on Susan’s list, are the Printique glass photos. Elegant, sleek, and frameless, a glass print is a unique and modern way to display your favorite images. You can go as small as 4×4 up to a stunning 16×24. Make large wall statements by ordering your print with a hanging mount, or stand up your favorite print on your desk by pairing it with a display pedestal, available for small sizes. It’s a modern and beautiful look for any new couple’s home.
