Carolyn & Ken’s Engagement Session by the Sea: Newport, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

Carolyn & Ken had visited Newport, Rhode Island once before on vacation and fallen in love with the historic city by the sea. Once they become engaged, they wanted someplace other than their hometown of New York for their engagement portraits and immediately thought of returning to Newport. So, on the afternoon of their session,…

Paul & Grace’s Perfect Watch Hill Evening: Westerly, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

Photography is all about light, except that you also need great content. As a photographer, I had one of the best sessions of my life on the evening of Grace & Paul’s engagement session in watch Hill, RI. Late afternoon on a not-too-warm yet not-quite-chilly September day we met at The Ocean House to being…

Kate & Robert’s Warm September Wedding Day: Mystic Seaport, Connecticut Wedding Photographer

There is something about the light in September that is unique to this time of year alone…it is still warm, still summer light, but uniquely so, not like July or August. And in this way, it makes photographing weddings, with their delicate fabrics, romantic flowers and lovely colors, particularly special. For Kate & Robert’s wedding…

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.
