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 and her fiancé, Jason, she gave me a little more information about them as a couple than what I ask for on my initial contact/new client inquiry form. As I read her description of them as individuals and a couple, I felt like I was almost reading a description of my husband and I fifteen years ago. I knew we were a good match, which made me so excited to finally meet with and photograph their engagement portraits last week. We began in Jamestown at a lovely cove where Jason proposed to Kelsey this spring. Then, because Kelsey is a landscape designer and gardener, we went to the URI gardens in Kingston. The plants were so verdant and lush with that fresh, spring-green unfolding everywhere. They were so easy to photograph and so sweet together, it was truly an enjoyable outing and I feel lucky to have been the photographer they chose.

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.
