Jennifer & Matt at The Bohlin: Newport, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Jen & Matt’s wedding ceremony was held at the historic Trinity Church in Newport, Rhode Island. The church is situated on a hill in the center of town and it’s spire is visible from all over the wharf area. I’ve always wanted to photograph a wedding ceremony within it’s historic walls, and Jen and Matt’s ceremony was everything I could’ve hoped for and more.  Jen and Matt were both relaxed, beautiful and genuine throughout the day. The balmy weather felt more like August than October, but it was perfect for the seaside reception at The Bohlin in Bowen’s Wharf. The newlyweds were even gifted with one of the most dramatic sunsets I’ve ever seen in Newport. Everyone gathered by the end of the dock for photos of Mother’s Nature’s spectacular display, and to watch the bride and groom have more portraits taken by the water.

Congratulations Jen & Matt – wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!

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.
