Tara & Brian’s Engagement Session: Charlestown, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

Tara spent her childhood summers in Rhode Island at her parents’ beach house in Charlestown. After bringing her fiance, Brian, to this area and building their own summer memories, they  decided that Rhode Island would be the perfect place to hold their 2016 wedding. Since their wedding day will be spent elsewhere in RI, they thought that engagement portraits should be held in the setting that draws them back to Rhode Island every year – Charlestown beach. On the day of their e-session, the weather was beautiful and warm, the late summer light soft and the waves crystal blue and rolling as we made our way along the coastline. And to top it off, we had a beautiful sunset at the breachway!

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.
