A Match Made in Heaven – Missy & Mike’s Dunes Club Celebration: Narragansett, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

When I think of a summer wedding by the shore in New England, I pretty much imagine Melissa & Mike’s wedding day. Warm sunshine, the crisp colors of sand, ocean and beach grasses, and endless blue skies – everything this sweet couple deserved. Their beautiful venue, The Dunes Club in Narragansett, Rhode Island, was the perfect location to celebrate their wedding day as the newlyweds love being outside, playing tennis, hiking with their dog, and spending time with family at the beach.

After the first look and wedding party photos at The Dunes Club, the wedding party jumped into one of Narragansett’s great trollies to head to their ceremony location, Christ the King Church in Kingston, RI. We stopped at a few lovely spots in Narragansett along the way for photos. After the ceremony, everyone returned to The Dunes Club to eat, drink and dance the night away while overlooking Narragansett Beach. It was truly an amazing day, filled with warmth, friendship and family and I loved being a part of their celebration!

Nailed It! Missy & Mike had been practicing the perfect twirl and lift move and the couple looked like professionals during their first dance!Congratulations Missy & Mike! Wishing you and your sweet Pup, Otis, all the very best!

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.
