Danielle + Matt are Engaged!: South Kingstown, RI Engagement Photographer

When I met with Danielle & Matt to discuss wedding photography, Danielle brought a very well organized and detail heavy binder of how she envisioned their wedding day. Their style is definitely unique and reflects their love of the rural, coastal section of Rhode Island that they call home, but with a wedding flair. So, it seemed only natural (get it, natural, ha ha) that their engagement session be held at one of my favorite local garden centers, The Farmer’s Daughter in South Kingstown, RI. The amazingly talented landscape designers at Farmer’s Daughter have set up so many wonderful botanical vignettes that make for fantastic settings for photographs. Not to mention, they have a really cool vintage tractor!

I was so glad the corn maze was still up and relatively green for this session.

Danielle and Matt warmed up very quickly in front of the camera and I think their affection for each other
really shows in their photos.

I love this image! And I’m not going to lie, I want a big barn like this for my studio,
so I went ahead and branded this one with my logo. A girl can dream!

Congratulations on your engagement Danielle & Matt. I can’t wait for next October!

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.
