Cassandra & Aaron’s Wedding Celebration at Theatre-by-the-Sea: Matunuck, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

On a beautiful afternoon last autumn, I had the pleasure of photographing Cassandra & Aaron’s wedding at the charming Theatre by the Sea in Matunuck, Rhode Island. It was a true family affair as Cassandra’s father designed and built the rustic chuppah for their ceremony, Cassandra’s stepmother officiated their ceremony, her sister baked their wedding…

Who Rescued Who? Sweet Peaches the Rescue Boxer

Anyone who knows me knows I am passionate about animals, especially rescue dogs. Growing up, we had cats as pets, and while I loved those kitties, I always wanted a dog as well. As a mother myself, I now understand why my mom didn’t want to take on one more creature to take care of…

Sweet Anticipation: Rhode Island Maternity Photographer

When Deb & Jeff hired me to photograph their wedding years ago, we instantly bonded over our love of dogs – specifically boxers and Boston terriers. They have two of the sweetest pups, Mollie & Ruby, who joined us for Deb’s maternity session, since the pups are – of course – the fur kids of…

A Warm November Engagement Session for Christina & Steve: Waterford, CT Engagement Photographer

I met Christina & Steve through a volunteer portrait session we both took part in to benefit the Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island’s capital campaign fundraiser – me as the photographer, of course, and Christina & Steve as the adoptive parents of a wonderfully sweet pit bull named Buddha that they rescued from…

Down on the Farm: South Kingstown, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

The Farmer’s Daughter in South Kingstown, RI is one of my absolute  favorite places to buy plants and to gather gardening inspiration. The women that run Farmer’s Daughter are truly botanical artists, creating amazing little vignettes all over their grounds. These, in turn, make for fantastic settings for photography!

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.
