Nicole & Tomas’ Late Summer Celebration at The Springhouse Hotel: Block Island Wedding Photographer

Nicole and Tomas were married at the Springhouse Hotel on Block Island, a charming island located just off the coast of Narragansett, Rhode Island. Their wedding day was one of those perfect, later summer days we get here in New England, with deep blue skies, warm breezes, bright sunshine and no humidity!  They were the lucky recipients of Mother Nature’s blessing, and honestly, I can’t think of two people who deserved it more.

Family and friends traveled from great distances to witness and celebrate this beautiful couple. During the hilltop ceremony overlooking Block Island Sound, Thomas’ three children joined the newlyweds for a sand ceremony in which each member of their new family poured their own color of sand into a glass vase to represent the loving, combined family they now make. After the couple exchanged their vows, friends and family danced late into the night in the open air tent. It was an amazing celebration I was was honored to be a part of it.

Congratulations Nicole & Tomas! I had so much fun at your wedding, and feel so lucky to have been able to play a role in your celebration! I wish you all of the very best!

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.
