Urban Engagement for Dianne & Carl: New York City Engagement Photographer

Dianne & Carl’s wedding will be held in Newport, Rhode Island this fall, so they wanted to have their engagement session in New York City, to reflect where they met and currently live. I met them on what was a perfect spring day for a photoshoot in NYC. We began their session at a gorgeous and historic restaurant in Greenwich Village (where Carl proposed to Dianne on her birthday) One if by Land, Two if by Sea. There was a little, private garden space off of the restaurant that provided us a great location for some portraits. Then we headed to the Brooklyn Bridge Park on the Brooklyn side of the bridge. That immediate are a has a nice neighborhood vibe and is a spectacular place to watch the sun set behind the skyline of Manhattan and enjoy the view of the historic bridge arching overhead to the city.

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.
