Class of 2021 High School Seniors: Rhode Island Senior Portrait Photographer

Congratulations to the Class of 2021! Your last two years of high school were not typical in many ways and brought distance-learning challenges amongst other issues that no one could have foreseen. But you persevered. You held the course and finished. You should be immensely proud of all that you have accomplished and incredibly excited…

Love is on the Wind: Narragansett, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

These two beautiful, southern women, with hearts as big as the moon, were finally married this summer on the coast of Narragansett, Rhode Island. The wind was gusting and blowing their hair (and the rose hips and grasses around them), but they only had eyes for each other. I was the lucky photographer that had…

Susan Sancomb Photography: Wedding Collage #1

Perhaps it’s my love of graphic design, along with photography, that  makes me love placing images together in collages. This collage is comprised of images form my 2009 wedding season. Just another way to present my work and also something I can easily create for my clients as well (with their names and wedding date…

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.
