Amanda & Mike at The Elms: Newport, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

Amanda & Mike are Minnesota & Wisconsin natives, living temporarily in Newport, RI for school. Before they head back to the Midwest, they wanted to capture their brief but special time in Rhode Island with an engagement session. We initially met at The Elms for some photos on their beautiful grounds. Then we hopped over…

Love & Sparkle! Chase + Kristina are Married: Oceancliff Resort, Newport, RI Wedding Photographer

Rhode Island natives Kristina & Chase brought some sparkle and glamor from their new home of NYC to their gorgeous Newport wedding at the Oceancliff Resort last November. It was a beautiful day for a wedding overlooking Narragansett Bay, and all the dazzling sunshine added an extra pop to the bright, rich colors of Kristina’s…

Expecting: Rhode Island Maternity Photographer

In 2010 when I photographed Lynn & Jay’s wedding, Lynn was a stunning bride. Now, almost two years later, she is a beautiful, glowing, mom-to-be and I couldn’t be happier for she and her husband. I can’t wait to meet and photograph little baby L in a few weeks and finally capture Lynn & Jay…


These cupcakes are from Patticakes Bakery in Wakefield, Rhode Island. Their cupcakes are just as delicious as they look, but perhaps you should just try one for yourself 🙂 Good luck trying to choose which flavor to buy, though. This is no plain-jane-just-chocolate-&-vanilla-bakery. Patticakes makes cupcake flavors like Chocolate Peanut Butter, Mint Hot Cocoa, Coconut…

Natural Beauty: Rhode Island Portrait Photographer

Once again, I teamed up with the very talented Jennifer Hodge of Spectrum Makeup Artistry to photograph a lovely aspiring model, Morgan. She is an amazing athlete, an intelligent student and a beautiful young woman with a natural gift for modeling. I’m sure she’ll do well in the modeling industry with her inner & outer…

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.
