41º Latitude for Jill & Dan’s Engagement: Newport, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

Newport, RI is one of my favorite places for wedding and engagement photography. There are so many beautiful settings for photos – from picturesque coastlines to historical architecture – and great places to begin and end sessions so that my couples have even more places that become meaningful to them and special places to revisit on anniversaries, etc.
Jill, Dan and I began their engagement session at Forty-One North in downtown Newport with a cocktail and portraits overlooking the Bowen’s Wharf marina, and then moved along Ocean Road for some remote coastline settings, eventually ending our session at Castle Hill Inn. While there, we were treated to an amazing September sunset! When all elements come together like this – a wonderful couple, great weather, gorgeous settings and sunsets – it makes me even more grateful for what I do for a living and also what I can provide to my clients.

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.
