Emily + Andy Engagement Session: South Kingstown Wedding Photographer

Emily and Andy wanted to hold their engagement session at the local spring-time hotspot, Kinney Azalea Gardens in Kingston. Every year in May, when the various species of Azaleas and Rhodedendrons are in bloom, Kinney’s wooded paths of wild, colorful, flowering shrubs are a pure joy to walk through. Towards the back of the property…

Brooke + Josh wedding – The Towers: Narragansett, RI wedding photographer

Throughout their wedding day Brooke and Josh displayed all the qualities that make them such a great couple – love, friendship, humor, family devotion and a great sense of adventure. I loved being around them all day. They were married in Narragansett, so we traveled to Chaffee Nature Preserve for photos afterwards, then on to…

Spring has arrived!

Spring has finally made it’s way to Rhode Island, so my husband, Chris, and I wasted no time getting started on our gardens. We have some favorite “go to” annuals that we plant every year, but we also try to choose new flowers as well and experiment. This year we added this tall, gorgeous, spikey…

Baby Brendan at three months: RI Baby photographer

I first got to know Jen & Dan in April 2006 as their wedding photographer. Now here we are, five  years later and they are the proud parents of a beautiful 3 month old son, Brendan. He was so smiley throughout our session, curious and happy. He has those perfect eyelashes that little boys always…

Hi there


About Susan

My wedding and portrait photography business is located in the heart of South County, Rhode Island close to URI and the scenic, south coast beaches. I grew up here and feel so lucky to be able to work and create in such a beautiful location! My approach to photography is much like my approach to life: creative, relaxed, natural and fun. I would describe my style as a blend of candid & photojournalistic with traditional & artistic images. I love taking the time to create some beautiful, romantic portraits of my brides & grooms, but also the spontaneous moments throught the wedding day. 

I consider my website and blog a place where I can visually journal about the amazing people and places I get to photograph. Not only do I consider myself exceptionally lucky to be making a living taking photographs for people at important moments in their lives, but I also get to meet an amazing cross section of people I might not otherwise get to know. In the ten years I have been in business, I have had the chance to photograph couples riding high on the excitement of their recent engagement, on their wedding day, parents-to-be waiting to meet their new child, newborn babies, children marking milestone birthdays and families who want to remember a certain time in their lives by capturing it in a photographic portrait.  

In more recent years, I have had the opportunity to photograph the weddings of younger siblings and friends of previous wedding clients, and the maternity, newborn and family portraits of couples whose weddings I photographed in years past. It feels amazing to know my creative vision of these occasions is a part of their lives and their family history and I am grateful for each and every one of them. When I say I love what I do, it is from a genuine place. I can't imagine doing anything else and feeling as creativly satisfied and pleased to make my clients happy.  

I studied photography at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) for undergraduate school and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
