Meredith & Craig are Married at Castle Hill: Newport, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Despite the rain that fell on and off throughout their wedding day, Meredith & Craig (and their family and friends) were so happy and so much fun to be with that the weather never put a damper on the day’s celebration. And when you have your wedding in a setting as stunning as Castle Hill Inn, who could complain? Before the steady rain started, they were able to have their first look moment in the private gardens that are tucked off to the side of the tent, wedding party photos up the path at the lighthouse (transportation to the lighthouse provided by a very cool little ATV that we all squeezed onto) and a lovely and meaningful ceremony on the lawn over looking Narragansett Bay and The Newport Bridge. The space inside the tent is airy and light and was decorated with pink and blue hydrangeas which had meant so much to Craig’s late mother.

Friends with both Craig & Meredith and not sure if you should sit on the groom’s side or the bride’s side? Easy, just sit on the side of your favorite baseball team!

Meredith and her mother collected vintage milkglass vases to place on all the tables at the reception.

Congratulations Meredith & Craig! We loved being a part of your wedding day and getting to know you and your families. May the years bring you endless happiness!

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.
