Clients speak!

From wedding and bar/bat mitzvah clients to deans and communication directors of schools and colleges, it is with gratitude that I share their kind words about both my photography and the experience of working with me. 


"She listened as we explained our needs"

"I continue to be impressed with the high quality images Shana Sureck creates. I most recently hired Shana to capture images of our school and the students to be used for a new print and online media marketing campaign. I attribute the great success of this project to the visual imagery Shana captured which perfectly embodied the message we wished to convey. Shana is creative and intuitive with her subject matter; she listened as we explained our needs, made thoughtful suggestions, and produced photos that were absolutely outstanding. I found the entire project to be a positive, collaborative, stress-free experience. I would (and regularly do) recommend Shana Sureck Photography to people looking for an outstanding photographer who has technical expertise and brings a beautiful sensitivity to her craft." -Alyse Evasius, Director of Marketing, Hebrew High School of New England

"She can engage quickly and genuinely"

It is a pleasure, joy, and privilege to work with Shana. Her skills are extraordinary but much more than this, Shana understands how to work with people. She is able to bring out the best in every photograph because she can engage with the folks she is photographing quickly and genuinely. You will enjoy the process and will be very happy with her results.  - Marianne Yoshioka, PhD, MSW

"She captures everything"

"As a photographer, Shana has the rare and magical ability to make everyone at a B'nai Mitzvah feel worthy of leaning in toward their own delicious moment in the light of celebration. With laser sharp attention and precision, Shana's camera is both omnipresent and invisible.  She captures everything - the sweetness, the poignance, and the raucousness of a simcha - without leaving a finger print behind. She is a joy to work with, able to literally bring out the best in each of her shining subjects who will be forever preserved by her artful eye."           -Chaia Heller, mother of a bat mitzvah


"She reveals the most amazing spontaneous moments"

"Shana is knowledgeable, experienced, creative, and empathetic. She worked with us before our two children's Bnai Mitzvot to understand who we were and what we wanted to express and remember, and worked tirelessly at the events themselves. She not only composes incredibly beautiful family portraits but reveals the most amazing spontaneous moments. A Bar or Bat Mitzvah goes by so fast and it can sometimes feel like a blur when it's happening. Every time we look through her photographs though, we can re-live and savor the whole day. Shana captured perfectly the love and pride, joy and silliness of our celebrations!"  Rachel Rubinstein, mother of a bar mitzvah
