Warm Light at Linden Place: Bristol, Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Each season’s light has its own beautiful quality. Autumn light is still warm, but the sun is starting to lower, and the light is bouncing around in a more colorful landscape of brilliant fall foliage. Colors pop, beams of light flair through tree branches and leaves. As a photographer, it’s the obvious and subtle we look for and try to capture. When I am shooting weddings, I am concentrating on capturing the special moments, emotions and beauty of my couples and their guests, while capitalizing on available light. Peter & Justine’s wedding at Linden Place in Bristol, RI was the perfect illustration of all of these elements. A beautiful couple, warm, sunny autumn day all in a gorgeous, historic setting in coastal New England. Throughout the day, we photographed the couple getting ready, seeing each other for the first time, celebrating with family and friends and exchanging vows in the most beautiful variety of settings that captured all of the textures, landscapes and architecture that is the essence of Bristol, RI.

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.
