Matt & Kate’s Late Winter Wedding at OceanCliff: Newport, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

So many factors went into the unforgettable wedding of Kate & Matt… a beautiful bride & groom, gorgeous location, a mansion with hilltop views of Narragansett Bay, filled with loving and supportive friends and family and a positively gorgeous spring-like day amidst a very cold winter. It seems that all the elements of a perfect…

Winter Collage: Rhode Island Photographer

Winter 2013-14 has been hard, and yet beautiful. I catch myself complaining about the cold, gray and ice by the time March rolls around, but honestly, I would not want to live where I could not experience the four seasons. This collage is an instagram glimpse at my winter in Rhode Island.

Beautiful Block Island, Rhode Island in the Winter

My husband and I were recently treated to a weekend winter vacation on Block Island by our close friends. This winter has been, in my opinion, miserably cold and snowy. I’ve tried embracing the season, and I do enjoy the look of the snow when it is falling, but enough is enough! So, with our…

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.
