Midwest Meets New England – Betsy & Kevin are Married! Newport, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Betsy & Kevin met several years ago while both were on vacation in Florida – she from Indiana and he from Northern Rhode Island. Who could imagine that a simple trip down south to escape the cold winter weather would result in meeting the person you want to spend the rest of your life with? But that’s exactly what happened and it was in late June 2012 that their families came together on a gorgeous summer day in Newport to celebrate their marriage. After a “first look” moment at The Harbor Inn, we took the entire wedding party to Sachuest Point Wildlife Refuge in Middletown for some photographs. Then we headed back to The Newport Yachting Center for the ceremony and reception. The entire day was lovely and filled with love and fun!

I absolutely love the soft summery colors of Betsy’s bridesmaid’s dresses and bouquets.

Open fields of wild grasses, ocean views, big puffy clouds…. I think this might be my new favorite location! It truly felt like the open spaces of Betsy’s native Indiana and Kevin’s coastal Rhode Island background were coming together perfectly in one location for their wedding day.

Congratulations Betsy & Kevin! It was a pleasure photographing your wedding
and I wish you both the best love & life has to bring!

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.
