Suzanne M.

Newport, RI, United States

Hello! I am lucky to be a professional photographer in this very special coastal city of Newport, Rhode Island.

Come with me on your personal 90 minute photoshoot with you and your loved ones to some amazing Newport sites. You will bring home memories from some world famous sites as well as little known areas of this city by the sea that only a local could show you.
My background is a Fine Arts major at California College of Art in Oakland, California and extensive photography courses at The Rhode Island School of Design. I have been a Newport photographer for 25 years, photographing everything from large weddings in a mansion , engagement photos along the sea, family portraits on a stunning beach and the interiors of some Colonials houses that this city is famous for.
I've spent 18 years in the hospitality business as an innkeeper and concierge in a 5 star diamond bed and breakfast . This along with my photography experience has given me insight into all this gem of a city has to offer.
If you prefer we can go on a private driving tour of Newport, picking out all the highlights the city offers . We can stop at various locations such as the Tennis Hall of Fame, the promenade called the Cliff Walk, drive along the 10 mile Ocean Drive and stop for you to take photos. Maybe walk along the wharf area and point out our world famous restaurants , coffees shops, or where to book a sunset sail on a schooner . This tour would be an overview of the city to places you can come back to , to explore further on your own. As a local I can take you places you may not find on your own. And I am open to any special requests you may have for our private Island tour.
I can pick you up at your hotel and off we'll go from place to place taking lovely photos of you and your Newport Experience.
I have travelled and explore many countries and know how valuable those photos are to making your trip truly memorable.

Credentials

I have worked as an Innkeeper in a 5 star historic Inn , the Francis Malbone House for the past 18 years . This includes telling people about all the highlights this beautiful seaside city has to offer, giving directions and making arrangements for a lovely stay in Newport.
I am a fine arts major from California College of Art in Oakland , California and have studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence Rhode. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a photographer photographing weddings, families, interiors and special events in Newport for the past 25 years.

Restrictions

I can drive a total of 4 people in my vehicle. If there are more people I will be happy to go in your vehicle.
