  • I went to Sumico Photography for a personal branding shoot, primarily to use in my business marketing. Not a fan of being in front of the camera I was somewhat anxious about doing this especially as I didn’t feel I had the best clothing options. Well Sumi made it an absolutely enjoyable experience. Her consultation and advice prior to the shoot was very helpful especially regarding the clothing choices. Not having to worry about hair and makeup for the day was a relief. And then her work on the day and the resulting photos blew me away. I love what she has captured. I will 100% be recommending my clients to Sumi.

  • Sumi was wonderful, funny, delightful and did the most fabulous job of making me enjoy having pictures done. I’m usually the one who hides from a camera so to say that I really enjoyed the experience is really something. I would recommend the beautiful Sumiko to anyone who wants to revel in feeling special and beautiful for a day. I will be encouraging my adult daughters to have a photo session with Sumi as a Christmas present this year, since I’ve told them what a fun day it was it shouldn’t be too hard to sell them on it…
