South County Bridal Show 1.16.11 the Towers, Narragansett, RI

Yesterday was the 4th annual South County Bridal Show held at local historic landmark, The Towers, across from Narragansett Beach. The event is organized by South County Tourism Council. I love participating in this show because it’s a great size, intimate and filled with talented, south county-based vendors. For the most part, we have worked with each other multiple times which makes it easy to refer each other to brides and be confident
of quality services on their wedding day. Over the years I’ve met some wonderful couples at this show, who I now consider good friends.

This year I went with green accents and placed 2 little love birds on my new Macbook (which I am in love with!).

I wish I had known about her when I got married!

Kinney Bungalow, Caononchet Beach Club and The Towers are the 3 facilities run by the Town of Narragansett that are available to rent for weddings and special events. All three are gorgeous and have character of their own, but only one was the site for my wedding in 1999!   •   •

Melissa Ashley Bridals in Westerly gave away a beautiful dress at the show!

Another edible display by KC & crew at West Bay Gourmet – tastes as good as it looks.

Spa Mosaic was giving out hand massages and I was tempted to pretend I was a bride….

The staff from the Coast Guard House were popping champagne all day long and serving amazing desserts.

Nana’s Gelato brought delicious samples and I managed to try one in between brides. The models for Alterations Unlimited/After Hours Formal Wear.

If only these two had been on the same floor, we could’ve introduced them and had a love match 😉  The Tux Shoppe and another of Elaine’s creations.

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.
