This part of summer in New England is the sweet spot. The water is comfortably warm, summer clothing is gently broken-in, sand dusts the seats of our cars and sun-kissed skin and hair reflects our time spent outside.  The last school year is blissfully in the past, yet the start of a new school year…

Tara & Brian wedding at Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, Rhode Island was a beautiful mis of classic & vintage, with contemporary accents and a delicate blush pallet. Though based in Philadelphia, the newlyweds chose Rhode Island for their wedding celebration as Tara’s family has spent all their summers vacationing in Charlestown and have created wonderful memories here,…

On a recent portrait session at a Smithbridge Stables, I captured these two beauties staying cool in an open-air stable. Despite how beautiful I find horses, I’ve always been a little nervous around them. I’ve ridden a few times out west, but learning to ride remains on my bucket list for now.

I had such a wonderful time photographing engagement portraits of Evan & Amanda. They are so comfortable, sweet and affectionate with each other that our session felt more like time spent with life-long friends. As we began our session at some meadows near the coast, the early evening summer sun was still bright and warm…

In 2012 I had the pleasure of photographing Tristan & Katie’s wedding on Block Island. It was a beautiful day in every aspect and the newlyweds quickly become some of my favorite clients ever. We’ve stayed in touch, and a little over two years ago they had their first child, a son, Reid. Two weeks…

This wedding was a hometown favorite for me! Getting ready photos at The Break Hotel, a South Ferry Church wedding ceremony and reception at The Towers – all three locations so perfectly South County, Rhode Island – and unique in their own way to this gorgeous coastal town where I live and work.  I can’t think…

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.
