West Coast to East Coast – Erin & Dave are Engaged: Narragansett, Rhode Island Engagement Photographer

The first time Erin and I spoke about her wedding she was just starting to look into holding her wedding in southern Rhode Island. She and her fiance, Dave, are both from the Northeast, but were living in Los Angeles at the time, trying to plan a wedding long distance. I did my best to describe the beauty of Coastal RI, and in particular, the setting and architecture of The Towers in Narragansett. I guess my description helped, because they booked the Towers, called me back and the rest is history! Because they were on the west coast, we had never met in person until we got together at the end of April for their Engagement session. Both Erin & Dave are so easy to be around, they instantly felt more like long-time friends that clients! It is very clear how much they love each other and what a great time they have together. It certainly made my job a lot easier.

That’s right – we’ve got a divided household here. One Yankees fan, one Redsox. But I think they can make it work!

I can’t wait to see you again on your wedding day in May!

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.
