5th Annual South County Bridal Show at The Towers, Narragansett, Rhode Island

For the last 5 years the hard working staff at South County Tourism Council has put together the annual South County Bridal Show held in early in January at the local landmark, The Towers, in Narragansett, RI. The show is a collection of many of southern Rhode Island’s most talented wedding vendors gathered in one beautiful location for the day, ready to meet with brides planning their weddings throughout Rhode Island and southern New England. I’ve been participating since the event’s inception and have had the opportunity to meet with brides and couples who may not have found me otherwise. At this show, I’ve met couples who first became clients, but I now consider friends. It’s always a pleasure to catch-up with my fellow vendors as well. Over the years, we’ve created professional relationships that have developed into friendships which I treasure. And unlike some of the larger bridal shows that can be a bit overwhelming to brides already amazed at the amount of choices and decisions that are involved in wedding planning, The South County Bridal Show is capped at a size that makes it a more intimate event, creating an environment that makes it much easier for brides and vendors to truly connect.

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.
