Schold Family: Narragansett, Rhode Island Family Portrait Photographer

I love photographing the Schold Family’s portraits every year. Tara & Ross are raising such fun, intelligent, polite and interesting boys, which is not surprising because they are two incredibly funny people themselves and our sessions are always filled with laughter. It’s always a pleasure to spend an hour or so with them catching up…

Brooks & Kelli’s Memorial Day Cape Cod, Massachusetts Wedding

Kelli & Brooks celebrated their wedding day at the beautiful Willowbend Country Club on Cape Cod in Mashpee, Massachusetts. After a first look at a nearby beach, the couple, who began dating in high school, were surrounded by family and friends from their hometown as they exchanged their vows on the green overlooking the club’s pond. The ceremony…

Hailey: Rhode Island Portrait Photographer

It was such a pleasure to photograph this lovely young woman that I have known since she was a toddler. It is amazing to witness and capture these young people in my life (and the families that find me for portraiture) as they grow, marking specific times in their lives with a special portrait. Hailey’s…

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.
