“...The costumes and the production design are seen to gorgeous effect in Richard van Oosterhout's luminous images. Whether he's following the actors in smooth walking-and-talking tracking shots outdoors or observing the faint play of firelight on their faces indoors, he brings a rich cinematic luster to a project that, whatever the final state of Lady Susan's fortunes, succeeds in giving Austen and Stillman the union they deserve...”

— Variety

“...Cinematographer Richard Van Oosterhout uses a great deal of natural light for both interiors and exteriors, making the salons and dressing rooms look vibrant and lived-in without ever betraying the period setting...”

— The Wrap

“The cinematography shows off all of the costume and set design to great advantage, with lighting simultaneously convincingly realistic, on point, and luscious.”
