Emily & Tony’s Autumn Narragansett Pier Wedding at The Towers

Emily & Tony were married on an autumn day that photographers dream about – mild temperatures and beautiful sunny skies with just enough thin clouds to filter and soften the light to be the most flattering. To top it all off, they held their ceremony and reception at the iconic Towers in the Narragansett Pier. This is one location I could never grow tired of photographing. The stone structure, sits overlooking the sea wall for Narragansett Beach, and has weathered many storms…perfectly symbolic for beginning a marriage and exchanging vows. Emily’s gown was somewhat vintage and absolutely stunning. I had dress envy yet again! Together, she & Tony looked so classic and elegant my job was really quite easy. After their first look along the sea wall and some photos with wedding party and family, we recreated an image that Emily’s father had seen from a previous wedding that I had photographed at the Towers… The “Abbey Road” shot! We lined everyone up, held up the traffic for a minute, and got the exact image we were hoping for.

And thanks to an amazing wedding party, we capped the night off with a glowing sparkler portrait outside in The Towers courtyard. Congratulations Tony & Emily! May all your years be filled with joy.

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.
