Stephanie & Chris are Married!: Narragansett, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

After hearing the story of the journey Stephanie & Chris had to take in order to find each other, I felt even more flattered that they would chose to have me be a part of their wedding day. The day started out gray and rainy and slowly cleared so that by the time we reached their reception at the Towers, the sky and ocean were a clear, sapphire blue. It seemed symbolic and very appropriate to celebrate under sunshine. I can’t tell you how much I loved being a part of their wedding day – thank you Steph & Chris!

Check out the expression on Chris’ face when he sees Stephanie for the first time – priceless!

Jane of Blue Moon Perennials has created a floral oasis on a backcountry road in South Kingstown, RI, not far from Stephanie & Chris’ home. It was the perfect setting for some photos before we left for their ceremony at South Ferry Church.

So much for their romantic moment! I think this qualifies as the ultimate “photobomb.”

I loved the sea glass colored mason jars at the ends of the church pews. The perfect touch for this charming country chapel near the beach.

Their first dance was so fun! When I think about the painfully boring “seventh grade spin” my husband and I did for our first dance, Stephanie and Chris were like Fred & Ginger!

Congratulations Stephanie & Chris! Your wedding was so amazing and special and I was thrilled to be a part of it.
Thank you for asking me to capture it for you!

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.
