Lauren & Josh are Married at Mt. Hope Farm: Bristol, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

I remember when I first met with Lauren to discuss the details of her wedding day at the beautiful Mt. Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island. She opened up her wedding planner to show me some of her ideas, but it was actually more like an amazing sketch book filled with swatches of fabrics and photos that all coordinated and looked more like a romantic art journal. Of course, this makes sense as she and her fiance, Josh, are both artists and work in the fashion world in NYC. To see all their choices come together so beautifully on their wedding day and get to be the photographer to capture it was a true pleasure.

Lauren’s Monique Lhuillier dress was so beautiful I couldn’t stop photographing it! However, it was even lovelier on Lauren.

Lauren had the coolest and most blinged-out wedding nails I have seen!

Such a lovely bride! And absolutely amazing eyes.

I love the little details that couples sneak into their wedding day. They help infuse the day with extra meaning.
Josh had Lauren’s name stitched onto his shirt cuffs.

Josh and his brother, his best man, head to the ceremony tent to await Lauren’s arrival.

Prior to exchanging their vows, the minister asked Josh & Lauren’s grandparents and parents to pass the couple’s wedding bands and bless them. I loved this!

The cedar trees behind The Cove Cabin provided the perfect wind break and some soft light for a romantic moment for the newlyweds.

Congratulations Lauren & Josh – we loved being a part of your beautiful wedding day and wish you all the best in your marriage!

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.
