Jackson & Alison at the Coast: Watch Hill, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

Watch Hill is without question one of my favorite places in Rhode Island – or anywhere really. To me, it embodies many of the qualities of a perfect coastal New England summer town. For Alison & Jackson, it is place with a lot of memories and signifigance (Jackson proposed to Alison on the dunes of Nappatree Point) and is where they will be holding their wedding later this summer. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to photograph them on such a beautiful evening!

The sun was starting to set a brilliant yellow as we headed up into the dunes for more photos. Jackson proposed to Ali on Nappatree Point last year, so it seemed only right to revisit hte location where they started their wedding journey.

I had a great time getting to know you Alison & Jackson and I am looking forward to your wedding in September!

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.
