Susane is best known for her honest and timeless photography style. With a unique talent for encompassing raw emotion in a frame, hypnotized by the romance of two souls in love, she will capture the seen and unseen moments in the most organic way. Each moment weaves a story that is yours alone, just as individual as you.

I meet my clients before their sessions. We get to know each other and often times become friends. We discuss what is important to you and then I create it! This is what I love about my job.


Lema Street is the address of my home studio in Eureka Springs, AR. Yes, Arkansas, located in the glorious Ozark Mountains. This is where I energize, regroup, create and just be. As a photographer, I am always trying to learn, adapt, grow and be inspired. This is my magical place that speaks to my creative being.

Whether you’re putting together a large celebration or an intimate ceremony, it is an immense honor to tell the story of your day. Check out my blog, view a few galleries, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

About Us

Why do I love wedding photography? Because I believe in them. Though I am the owner/photographer for Lema Street Photography, I have the most amazing husband ever who totally supports what I do. We live between Wichita, KS and Eureka Springs, AR. Our home in Arkansas is nestled in a hollar, surrounded by tall pines. It is an inspiration and where my creativity flows. I share my studio with my musician husband.  When you find someone that has more faith in you than yourself, you know that you are on the right track. I would not be where I am without this man. We have extreme wanderlust and have traveled much of the world and I am grateful for these adventures and misadventures. I look for the road less traveled to capture that perfect story. So really, this is our own love story.
