Hello! I'm Sydney.

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, anything with the word pumpkin in it (Trader Joe's is heaven in the fall), the color teal, and a deep love for anything vintage. I'm a huge Civil War buff, I mainly listen to music from the 60s-80s and enjoy visiting small breweries all over the states. My 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 you and your love story! When I get asked about my style of wedding photography I always say it's romantic and real. I'm passionate about beautiful fine art portraits of my couples, 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!) 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.

I want you to know I am grateful you are considering me as your photographer, thank you for visiting my website and reading a little bit about me! Wedding photography is my passion, I love every part from the getting ready details to the first dance, there is just something magical about how everything comes together. I’d love to hear about you and what your wedding day is going to be like. Want to learn more about my wedding photography experience? Click here and let's chat.

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.
