A Portrait of the Portrait Photographer: Susan Sancomb

It’s been quite a while since I last had my own portrait taken. Probably because I am much more comfortable behind the lens than in front of it. Recently, I had a professional reason for an updated portrait and the image posted below is the result. Yup, that’s me. Hair a little more grey and…

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…

Sweet Baby Jack & Big Brother Ben: Rhode Island Newborn & Family Photographer

I simply adore this beautiful, growing family – Mama Alyson, toddler Ben & newborn baby brother, Jack. The sweetness and silliness of little ones cuddling their mom and running around with squeals and laughter (and diaper changes!) brought back so many fond memories of my own son’s childhood. The weather was warm, the sun was…

Danielle & Patrick’s Beautiful Spring Wedding: Narragansett, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Danielle & Patrick’s wedding was an amazing celebration from beginning to end. The couple chose Christ the King Church in Kingston for their ceremony since South County, Rhode Island became very special to Danielle while attending the University of Rhode Island. She told me she walked the Narragansett sea wall numerous times with her close…

Seaside & Gardens: Narragansett & South Kingstown, Rhode Island Family Photographer

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.
