Maura: Rhode Island Portrait Photographer

I had a wonderful time photographing Maura again. This young woman constantly impress me with her intellect, creativity, talents and humor. To top it off, she is one of the kindest souls I know. I think all of these wonderful qualities make it easy to photograph her, as she just seems to be a natural…

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…

At The Water’s Edge, Moongates & Garden Stone Walls: Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

I am constantly inspired by the people and landscape of my little corner of New England, especially the green places, the wooded spaces, and the places by the water that are best known by locals who share a love for Rhode Island with me. When Kelsey reached out to me about engagement photography for she…

Brendan 9 Months: Rhode Island Baby Photographer

Sweet little Brendan just turned 9 months old and is still as happy as ever. This little dried up leaf proved to be quite interesting to him, resulting in a few “taste tests.” Apparently, dried oak leaves are not delicious.

Emily + Andy Engagement Session: South Kingstown Wedding Photographer

Emily and Andy wanted to hold their engagement session at the local spring-time hotspot, Kinney Azalea Gardens in Kingston. Every year in May, when the various species of Azaleas and Rhodedendrons are in bloom, Kinney’s wooded paths of wild, colorful, flowering shrubs are a pure joy to walk through. Towards the back of the property…

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.
