Huxster, A Funky New Shop: Watch Hill, Rhode Island Photographer

I’ve been spending a lot of time down in Watch Hill, Rhode Island lately. It is a tiny little little town that has so much charm and is filled with summer memories for me. During one recent engagement session (alison & Jackson) we stopped into a great new store near the town’s historic carousel, Huxster.…

Jackson & Alison at the Coast: Watch Hill, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

Watch Hill is without question one of my favorite places in Rhode Island – or anywhere really. To me, it embodies many of the qualities of a perfect coastal New England summer town. For Alison & Jackson, it is place with a lot of memories and signifigance (Jackson proposed to Alison on the dunes of…

Patrick & Rebecca’s Gorgeous Linden Place Wedding: Bristol, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

When the warm weather temperatures of summer arrived on June 1, 2013 in Bristol, Rhode Island, it seemed like it was a special order for Rebecca & Patrick.

Family Vacation 2013: Florida Portrait Photographer

Every winter, my son and I travel to Florida to visit with my parents who are now happily living the snow bird life of retired New Englanders. While they live just north of Orlando, one of my very best friends in the world lives with her family on the Florida panhandle in Ft. Walton Beach.…

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.
