Erin: Narragansett, Rhode Island High School Senior Portrait Photographer

I met with Erin, her mom Kim and her best friend Julia at Scarborough Beach in Narragansett to begin her high school senior portrait session. The women drove down from Massachusetts to capture Erin’s portraits at the beach where she loves to spend her time, which I was so grateful for! We had a gorgeous…

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…

Marisa & Jake’s Beautiful Coastal Wedding in Narragansett, Rhode Island

Marisa & Jake’s love story is the classic Rhode-Island-girl-meets-midwestern-boy-and-they-fall-in-love-in-college-story. Well, maybe that’s not a classic scenario, but since that is also how my husband and I met and fell in love, I suppose I am partial to it. Marisa & Jake met in graduate school at Syracuse University studying kinesiology. They traveled to Rhode Island for a visit so…

Cassandra & Aaron’s Matunuck & Narragansett, Rhode Island Engagement Session

I have known Cassandra since I was a teenager as her sister, Nessa, is one of my closest childhood friends. Cassandra has always been beautiful, intelligent and creative, so when she contacted me about photographing her wedding, I was so excited. Not just because I knew I would get to photograph a really cool wedding for…

Seaside & Gardens: Narragansett & South Kingstown, Rhode Island Family Photographer

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.
