Words of Praise
★★★★★ “I have seen so many of Seze’s pictures of well known music artists that finally I thought: I have to have her do mine. It’s one of the best decisions I have made. I HATE posing for pictures and she has managed to make me laugh and feel comfortable each time. Whether we were at her studio with Duran Duran playing so I could strike a pathetic imitation of a fashion pose in a Francesco Scavullo shoot, or wandering around Brooklyn looking for interesting backdrops and laughing like crazy as we worked on the shots, Seze has a way of making a it fun. In doing so, she finds a way to capture personality on film. That’s a gift.” – Lisa Smith aka DJ Noncompliant
I literally had 5 bookings within the first 2 hours of adding the listing and I am writing this review because I am sure it has everything to do with the photos. Her pricing is also very reasonable and she came with her own pro lighting, included in the price she quoted me. I highly recommend Ms. Devres for all your photo needs!” – Lisa Speransky
★★★★★ “Getting married, I wanted my special day to be documented in a unique and artistic way. A friend recommended that I contact SD photography because she said that the owner was a true artist who would showcase what makes us such a great couple and be a calm, supportive presence through what can be a sometimes stressful process. It turns out, my friend was right! The wedding did get stressful at times, but Seze kept me calm and soothed and I was confident that I looked great. When we got the photos from her (quickly, I may add) I was super impressed–not only did she capture everything that happened during our wedding weekend (friends and family celebrating), she also really showed the emotional meaning behind this amazing time of my life. Thank you SD Photography! I am looking forward to experiencing other great life milestones and I am hoping that you’ll be there to photograph them.” – Michelle E.
★★★★★ “Seze Devres is my favorite photographer for either portrait or photography in the tri-state area. I’ve enjoyed using her work professionally for sales, and personally for my family, for more than 10 years. She has a beautiful eye, always captures more beauty than you think is there, and excels in any situation — children, live events, homes, etc.”
– Patrick, Real Estate Agent
★★★★★ “Seze took some professional headshots for me and did a great job. I had never been in a photo shoot before and I had no idea how to pose. She was very professional and was great at making me feel comfortable and offering suggestions. I normally hate photos of myself, but I love how these came out. I’m fairly certain that the photos helped me get a new job! I would happily recommend Seze for her great work to anyone.” – Lauren S.
★★★★★“Seze photographed our family when our son was 5 months old. I can hardly believe the authenticity she captured in the images. We have printed, framed, and shared these as our family photos ever since, even though our son is nearly three! I recommend Seze for meaningful portraiture and capturing people as who they are and what they feel.
– Jamie H. and Ashe, parents
★★★★★ “Seze was an absolutely indispensable part of making our day so memorable. The thing any couple wants most from their wedding day is to have a few moments to just absorb and enjoy what’s happening – it’s easier said than done with everything going on. But Seze was always there to reassure, always anticipating things she knew we’d want (things we didn’t think about until she’d already done it). She was full of smiles and affection for all the guests – our dearest friends and relatives. Knowing Seze was thinking for us let us relax and be fully immersed in the moment, rather than trying to conduct it. When we saw the photos, we were blown away. All our work to make the celebration we wanted was there, and our family and friends haven’t stopped talking about how much they love the pictures. We knew Seze was a professional with tons of experience, we just weren’t prepared for how lucky we’d feel when we saw it in action on our most important moment. We are so fortunate to have these memories captured by someone who made our wedding better by being a part of it.”
– Mr & Mrs McHugh, Bride and Groom
★★★★★ “Seze brings concepts to life in image and design. She’s a gifted artist. And her photography brings out not only the best, but the essence of her subjects. Plus, she’s adorable.”
– Jennifer Prediger, Actor
★★★★★ “I have never been comfortable with having my picture taken, but Seze knows how to do it. She got me to relax, which is quite a feat for a boudoir shoot! I usually hate being in front of a camera, but she made the day so much fun, I didn’t want it to end. Plus she’s great to work with afterwards, a very compassionate editor, and so thorough. After my session I told all my girlfriends to schedule one with her. She made me feel like a pinup star.”
– Jesica, Writer
★★★★★ “Seze Devres is the greatest photographer on earth. I love her portraits and live shots of NYC’s music and cultural happenings. She’s particularly adept at capturing beauty and candid moments from unruly subjects like frenzied dancers, drunken galoots, musicians, and squirmy babies.”
– Patrick Hambrecht, Father and Musician
★★★★★ “I have always been a fan of Seze’s visual style. I love her candid and vibrant pictures. When I was asked to get a professional publicity shot for my job, I didn’t think twice about calling Seze to schedule a photoshoot. She was amazing and supportive the entire time, giving me pointers all the way, and making me feel comfortable and at ease with myself. The photoshoot was a great experience for me and we both had a lot of fun. I was completely blown away by the pictures she took of me! They perfectly reflected my personality in a casual and honest manner, while still maintaining the professional look of a publicity photo. Amazing work! I look forward to my next photoshoot with Seze.”
– Victoria Docu, Arts PR Specialist
★★★★★ “The day spent with Seze in her studio was truly an amazing and fun experience. Since we had a heavy request to have portraits taken of both me and my fiancé, as well as three separate engagement shot set ups – her unwavering energy and confident art direction was truly appreciated!! Seze wasn’t overwhelmed one bit – she was excited as we were and the final product is absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t be happier with the experience and outcome of ALL of them.”
– Gratia & Eric, newly engaged couple
★★★★★ “Seze has provided the artistic vision and construction for my website, including photography and logo. Her professionalism, confidence and skill are exceptional, making her a sought after designer. She is an amazing person to work with, tailors each project to suit her clients’ needs perfectly and completes projects in a timely manner. I get countless compliments on my website and recommend Seze to everyone. Thank you Seze!”
– Marjorie O’Connor, Acupuncturist
★★★★★ “Seze did an amazing photography job with my son and daughter-in-laws engagement pictures. She was able to capture their joy and them in motion! Every time I look at these photos, I am confident in their happiness.” – Jeanne T. McConnell, Mother of the Groom
★★★★★ “I am so thrilled to have my custom instruments captured through Seze’s lens. Her eye for detail, style and nuance, combined with an understanding and realization of the overall mood these objects evoke, are the perfect document of my work. Her excitement for photography absolutely shows in the quality of the photographs she creates – they are living documents of a presence that would ordinarily be hard to capture in an image.”
– Lori Napolean, Musician
★★★★★ “I asked Seze to create a family portrait for us, knowing she would be able to combine artistry with excellent photographic quality. Magically, she has accomplished just that, pleasing both my twenty-something daughters and my own more mature preferences. Furthermore, she kept the experience fun, in spite of the sweltering heat wave!” – Mary McFerran, Artist
★★★★★ “Our engagement, Korean ceremony, and wedding photo sessions with Seze were an exceptional experience. Her personal touch and vision helped us capture magical moments that will last a lifetime. Seze’s expert guidance and professionalism helped us capture truly epic photos. We’re so happy to have worked with Seze.” – Betty & Brian McConnell, Bride and Groom

“Katrina and I wanted to thank you for everything you did for our wedding. You did such a marvelous job. It was the greatest day of our lives and it wouldn’t be complete without your creative intelligence and keen eye. Also, thanks for being so flexible. It helped ease the anxiousness we both felt.”
