On Long Pond – A Wedding with a View: Charlestown, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Katy & Michael’s wedding was held on her parents amazing property in rural Rhode Island. The wooded land overlooks Long and L Pond, and is scattered with wild rhodadenron and mountain laurel bushes, giant oaks and maples. Katy’s father described the ceremony space they created with planner and stylist Brandi LaCoste of Blissful Events as a “wedding in the round.” Guests on 3 sides – nature and the view on the fourth. It was extraordinarily special to see their home transformed by the family’s hard work and love, into a gorgeous and natural wedding venue!

Katy & Michael met in the army and began their relationship by Katy lending Mike her Game of Thrones books. Every time Mike finished a book he would return it to Katy for the next in the series. Each time he would ask her on a date again until she finally said yes. The rest is history!

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.
