Hey, I'm Sydney but my friends call me Syd.
What's up, I’m the girl behind the camera! I’m 21 years old & an embarrassing mom to my baby, Gunner. He's my pittie rescue & not a real human baby in case you were wondering lol. I'm the kinda girl that is a little reserved at first but once I get to know you I will never stop talking!!
I'm totally a mountains girl, will do anything for a good view, & I've got big dreams of traveling full time one day! I am HUGE on the importance of family so I spend every second of my free time with mine. When I'm not shooting weddings, you can find me baking all the gluten free things, cheering on my Atlanta United boys, & religiously binging New Girl!
Why do intimate weddings & elopements?
I LOVE this question! Remember how I said I was a little shy?? Well, the thought of a big wedding scares me to death!! I know I'm not alone in this feeling & that's why I chose to focus on intimate weddings and elopements. If you're a little shy like me, it's so much less pressure to "perform" and you can spend more time on you wedding day doing things that you think are fun!!
Now, I know in the past, elopements meant running off to Vegas & getting married by some dude that smells weird & vaguely looks like Elvis, but not anymore! Elopements now are more focused you, your partner, & having your best day ever doing whatever the heck you want to do!
I was Made to travel.
Ever since I was little my family has spoiled me rotten by going on trips every year and taking me on many cool vacations, including a 21 day road trip out west & Jeep trail riding trips to Colorado & Moab! I am obsessed with getting to see and do new things and it's super important to me to include that in my work. I don't want you to think "oh, she's in Georgia so we can't hire her for our Sedona elopement" because that is wrooooong girl!! I will travel anywhere for you!
My role in your day...
As your photographer, I want you to feel comfortable with me tagging along on your wedding day but not ruled by me. I take a more documentary style approach to wedding days. This means that I'll do some posing during a designated time but I'll mostly just capture your day the way it happens. I strategically plan my timelines so your day can flow as smoothly as possible! You are free to run, cuddle, play, laugh, cry & everything in between! I want to get all the candid shots you want to remember years down the road!
