Megan & Jeff’s Bohemian Beach Wedding: Avon-by-the-Sea, New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Megan & Jeff’s wedding celebration took me to the New Jersey shore – Avon-by-the-Sea to be exact – and their gorgeous beach front venue, The Columns. The beautiful bride, Megan, is my cousin. Her family is incredibly important to me, and I have been photographing she and her sister since they were little. So when…

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…

I Made the Cover of South County Life Magazine!

Well, I didn’t make the cover, but one of my photographs did! An image by Susan Sancomb Photography is featured on the front cover of the September 2013 ALL-WEDDING issue of South County Life magazine and I couldn’t be happier! I love my little state and my corner-on-the-coast within it. I think it is the…

Surfer/Bohemian Wedding Inspiration Shoot: Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Rhode Island is a beautiful place in the summer. Every year, our winter-weary state comes back to life in the spring and we soak up every moment of summer along the coast. So it makes sense that many couples choose to hold their weddings here during the summer months. And it’s only natural that many…

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.
