Stephanie & Nick’s Coastal Engagement Session: Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

When I met Stephanie & Nick at one of my favorite locations in Narragansett, Rhode Island to begin our session it was sunny and bright. Slowly, the clouds started to roll in and provided us with some beautiful, soft, atmospheric, portrait light. By the end of the session (we had moved to Narragansett Town Beach) we could hear rumbles of thunder in the distance and darker clouds were hovering on the edge of the horizon. I love the transformation of light that we had throughout their engagement session. It shows that beautiful images can be made in various natural/available lighting situations.. especially if you are a couple like Stephanie & Nick who were relaxed and just enjoyed being together, having fun anticipating their upcoming wedding day. They were so sweet together, both so gorgeous and made my job that much easier!

I had a wonderful time photographing your engagement portraits, Stephanie & Nick, and can’t wait for your wedding later this summer!

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.
