About Us

About us

Sue Stephenson Photography is a professional wedding photography and portrait photography service. We cover Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Northumberland, County Durham, North Yorkshire, North East England and beyond.

We specialise in stylish wedding photography. Our experience has taught us that a mixture of documentary, candid and posed photography works best for our clients but we can adapt to any style required.  Our aim is to capture all of the special moments from your big day.   If you are looking for a wedding photographer then please contact us.

Our work takes us to some fantastic venues including Newton Hall, Le Petit Chateau, Alnwick Castle and Doxford Hall in Northumberland.  Wylam Brewery, Hotel du Vin, Jesmond Dene House and The Mansion House are among our favourite venues in Newcastle.  We adore the castles and stately homes around County Durham and go further afield when required and have shot weddings in Scotland, Grantham, York, Harrogate and even to the opposite end of the country for a beach wedding in Cornwall.

Our portfolio also includes lifestyle family portraits at locations and we offer newborn photography sessions at our home studio.

Please enjoy our wedding, family and newborn galleries and if you like what you see then get in touch with me to chat about what we can offer.

About me

I was born and raised in North Northumberland and now live in Newcastle with my husband and three children.

Whether for a wedding, the birth of a child, portrait shoot or commercial work, I believe that connecting with my clients is one of the most important steps and I make a great effort to get to know what makes them tick.  I have a natural, relaxed, personal and flexible approach and treat every client as unique.

My aim is to provide you with beautiful, timeless images and I see it as a pleasure and a privilege to be chosen to photograph your special moments.



My aim with my wedding photography is to tell the story of your day – to capture the emotion of your wedding day, those special moments that you will remember for the rest of your life and also the many other details that you would have otherwise missed or forgotten over time had they not been recorded in a photograph.

I will also have a second photographer, my husband Sean, to capture as much of the day as possible.  Nothing will be too much trouble for us. Brides often feel more comfortable with a female photographer during the preparations and, likewise, the groomsmen usually prefer a male photographer and we are able to offer that service. 

We take an unlimited amount of photos, the best of which I will edit and give to you as high resolution images on CD or USB stick.   Albums and prints will also be available.

We have packages to suit all budgets, from small intimate ceremonies to large weddings. The galleries have a small sample of my images.  Please have a look and contact me to discuss your requirements for your special day.  It is always good to meet up with your photographer before the wedding itself. We offer free pre-wedding photoshoots which are great for us to get to know each other.

Portrait sessions

Portrait sessions can be arranged either at your home, at a studio or in a natural setting.  Jesmond Dene is a fantastic setting as are the wonderful Northumberland beaches.  Pets are welcome to join in the session. I’m very happy to take pictures of our four-legged friends as I see them as part of the family.



For your peace of mind, my business is fully insured.


We look forward to hearing from you!
