I am probably one of the shortest people you will ever meet, and I love it! I've always felt that my shortness has helped me be a more detail oriented person (which is probably why I love photographing rings so much!) A little bit more about me: I have a passion for cooking (and the Food Network...oh and Alton Brown is my food celebrity), being surrounded by nature, and a deep love for anything vintage. I'm a huge Civil War buff (seriously, I knew the Gettysburg Address by heart in fifth grade and have been to Gettysburg, PA five times!), I mainly listen to music from the 60s-80s (Jethro Tull is my favorite band, and the main thing I listen to when editing!) and enjoy visiting small breweries with my husband on our travels together. My wonderful husband Jesse and I call Grand Haven, Michigan our home and we have three crazy cats: Jethro, Janis and Morrison (named after my three favorite bands/singers of course!). 


Connection with my couples is huge for me; I want to focus on the both of you and your love story! My style isn't for everyone, and that is totally okay! My style of wedding photography is romantic and real. I'm passionate about beautiful fine art portraits, but I want couples to be themselves on their wedding day and not feel like they have to copy all these pictures on the internet (I'm looking at you Pinterest!) I love natural moments, smiles, laughter and you being madly in love with your new spouse; your wedding day is about you, and I want to showcase that! Even more so, I love getting to know so many amazing couples every year! Many of my past clients have become close friends of mine.

Sydney is one of the nicest people we have ever met! She let us just be “us”...Everything was natural and relaxed, which fit the theme of our wedding. Her responses were always in a timely manner, and we never had any concerns with our entire process...Meeting Sydney is like meeting someone you’ve felt you’ve known your entire life. She made the entire process simple. You never felt rushed, or forced into something you know won’t look right.
