Jessica & Michael’s Mid-Summer Wedding in South County, Rhode Island

Jessica & Michael’s wedding was held on a lovely, mid-summer day at two of my favorite South County, Rhode Island locations – South Ferry Church and The Towers in Narragansett. Both venues are so quintessentially coastal New England, with beautiful architectural details and quaint charm. And since Jessica is an architect, finding locations that were both aesthetically pleasing and had the right feel was important to her. These two places make any wedding feel more personal and are of course, fantastic settings for photography! We began the day at The Break Hotel in Narragansett with Jessica and her bridal party. After the couple’s first look we left for the ceremony at South Ferry Church. Jessica’s mother, Patty, was the florist and placed pale pink peonies throughout the chapel, adding to the soft light and warmth of the ceremony. Afterwards, the newlyweds and their guests dined, danced and celebrated at the iconic Towers in Narragansett Pier, overlooking the ocean.

Congratulations Jessica & Michael. Meeting you and photographing your wedding was a joy and I wish you all the very best in life!

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.
