Paul & Grace’s Perfect Watch Hill Evening: Westerly, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

Photography is all about light, except that you also need great content. As a photographer, I had one of the best sessions of my life on the evening of Grace & Paul’s engagement session in watch Hill, RI. Late afternoon on a not-too-warm yet not-quite-chilly September day we met at The Ocean House to being their session and not only were the three of us just thrilled with the setting and light, but I can tell you that Paul and Grace are the type of people that are instant friends. So enjoyable to be with and even better in front of my camera! So there you go, perfect late afternoon light slipping into gorgeous sunset and then twilight, and fantastic content – Watch Hill and a wonderful and deeply in love couple. Just another session that reminds me how truly lucky I am to have been able to make my passion into a way to make a living.

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.
