"She made me feel beautiful"

Sydney did my maternity photos for me and encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone. I'm so glad she did! At a time when I felt vulnerable and uncomfortable in my skin she made me feel beautiful. I know I will treasure these pictures for a very long time.


Hi! I'm Sydney, lover of all the little details,  all things romance, and having a blast on your wedding day! I really can't imagine doing anything better than getting to capture love every weekend and celebrate such a joyous day with all of my couples. I'm a recent bride myself, momma to two (and a pup), and I'm so excited to get to know you too!

On top of all the joyous moments, I've also really come to value the unexpected, intimate moments that take place on a wedding day.

The hug your mom gives you before you leave your dressing room. The tear that he tries to hide when he sees you walking down the aisle. The way you lean your heads together during the toasts. 

This day is about more than the flowers and the shoes you chose. It's about celebrating the start of a new family and having so much fun while doing it! It's an honor to play a part in such a significant day and I hope you'll choose me to be a part of yours! 

We'll meet via video chat and talk about your wedding day. I want to hear everything—how you met,  how you got engaged, and all abut your wedding plans, hopes and dreams! 

Let's meet!

After we chat, I'll send you your custom wedding day contract and proposal. Once that is signed and the 25% retainer is paid, we can start planning the fun stuff- your timeline and engagement session!

STEP two:

This is our chance get to know each other and to get  you comfortable in front of my camera so that by the time your wedding day rolls around we'll be like lifelong friends and you'll be posing pros!

Step three:

We'll be in touch throughout this whole process, but we'll really start to nail down the details the month before your wedding. We'll meet one last time to go over everything from traditions to timeline and everything in between.

STEP four:
finalizing details

Your wedding day is here! Just know I am PUMPED to celebrate and capture all the little moments. It's going to be awesome and go by so fast so soak it in!

Step five: 
The big day

Once your gallery is delivered we can chat about ordering albums! I hope our relationship doesn't end after I deliver your photographs. I want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, I'd love to document your growing family!

delivery and albums



WHat to expect

"she makes you feel beautiful your entire day"

Sydney is absolutely amazing. She knows exactly how and when to get the perfect shot. She has been doing family photos for me for a few years and just captured my wedding. The sneak peeks are incredible and we can’t wait for the rest! She also has the best personality and makes you feel beautiful your entire day!


"you truly captured our love"

We have gotten so many compliments from people on our wedding photos. So many people are telling us that our photographer is so talented! And I couldn’t agree more with them. You truly captured our love and all of the important details that we put so much time and thought into. Thank you so so so much!


"like a friend was shooting our wedding"

Our wedding photos came out even better than we imagined. There are so many beautiful photos I don’t know how we will ever decide our favorites. Sydney truly went above and beyond to make our wedding day go smoothly. She was on time and professional, yet still made me feel like a friend was shooting our wedding.


Sydney is so awesome to work with! She took so much stress off of us as a photographer, helping us plan for our wedding day. Her pictures are beautiful and she makes it so easy to be in front of the camera! 



"made me feel comfortable and confident"

I absolutely hate taking pictures, but Sydney made me feel comfortable and confident on the most important day of my life. She was so easy to work with. I was impressed by her organization and attention to detail. The next time I need a photographer, I will definitely be going back to Sydney

Do you edit all of the photos?

The short answer is yes. I use Adobe Lightroom to finalize all of your images and I avoid Photoshop at all costs. I have learned a system of shooting it right during our time together so I do a very minimal amount of editing to your photos. Typically my editing process involves brightening everything up for that light and dreamy style you've seen me post and a few color corrections when they're needed. 


how many images will I recEIve?

For both wedding days and engagement sessions you should expect all of the best images that I take. On a wedding day that is between 60-70 photos per hour of coverage and between 80-90 images per hour with an additional photographer. For engagement sessions, I usually deliver between 60-70 images in your gallery.


WHat Time do you start shooting?

On your wedding day, the time we start will depend on your timeline that I help you create. For engagement and other sessions, we start  about 2 hours before sunset for that super dreamy light we all love.  Sunrise sessions do happen on rare occasions when we still want that dreamy light but just can't find the time in the evening. Don't worry though, we'll talk all about that before your session.


WHAT SHOULD I WEAR for my engagement shoot?

This question is what inspired me to create a style guide just for all of my SMP couples! In the style guide you'll find tips on coordinating colors with each other and with a specific location, you'll find out how to prepare for your session, how to choose the most flattering pieces and accessories and so so so much more.


How do I book and Pay?

You can reach out to me by filling out the contact form.  You can always email me at as well. From there, I'll put you in my client workflow system called Honeybook so that we can get you booked, signed, and paid via credit or debit card or check in the mail if that's what you'd prefer. It's all super simple, I promise.
