Pasha & Mike’s Autumn Engagement Session at the Beach: Narragansett, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

After the summer tourists leave, the temperatures drop a bit, and South County settles back into it’s regular year-round routine, there is a quiet beauty that can be found all around, and especially at the beaches. For Mike + Pasha’s engagement session, we visited one of my favorite beaches in Narragansett, Rhode Island, to take full advantage of the light, dunes, water and grasses and the angle of the sun as it shifts towards the winter horizon. I have to say, I felt an instant comfort and rapport with Pasha + Mike. Their candor about being a little nervous before we started, their excitement as they step into wedding planning and their future together, and their story of how they met playing dodgeball! Yup, they are of my tribe and I enjoyed every minute with them. They are also incredibly beautiful and clearly naturals in front of the camera, and that didn’t hurt either!

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.
