Easter Inspired Party: Rhode Island Event Photographer

After the long, gray winter we’ve experienced this year in southern New England, the arrival of Spring has everyone especially excited. So when the talented women at Blissful Events contacted me about capturing their spring themed Easter party decor I was thrilled. Finally, color again! Pastels mixed with natural elements and a little shine set…

Into The Woods: Whispering Pines, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Set amongst the wooded forest and pine groves of western Rhode Island is the beautiful Alton Jones Campus and the Whispering Pines Conference Center. It was the perfect location for Heather & Brian’s wedding as the couple loves to be outdoors, hiking and geocaching. In fact, their love of geocaching made little appearances in their…

Slainte Mhath & Happy Holidays!

Slainte Mhath! (Gaelic/Scottish for Good Health) The trip I took to Scotland with my husband and son during the summer of 2014 made a huge impact on me, so it only makes sense that many of the instagram images I took in Scotland are included in the “2014 in Review” holiday card I am sending…

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.
