I am probably one of the shortest people you will ever meet, and I love it! I've always felt that I’m a more detail oriented person because of it, which is probably why I love photographing rings so much! A little bit more about me: I have a deep love for nature and anything vintage (especially mid century modern), and I’m a huge Civil War buff (seriously - I knew the Gettysburg Address by heart in fifth grade and have been to Gettysburg five times). I’m also passionate about cooking, the Food Network, and have seen Alton Brown Live twice! Music has always been a big part of my life, especially songs and artists from the 60s-80s, and I’m almost always listening to Jethro Tull while editing my photos! My wonderful husband Jesse and I call Grand Haven, Michigan our home, and we enjoy traveling, visiting breweries, and hanging out with our three crazy cats: Jethro, Janis and Morrison (I wasn’t kidding when I told you music is a big part of my life!)
Why choose Sydney Marie Photography?
I know you have a TON of wedding photographers to choose from - so what sets me apart? I love natural moments, genuine smiles, belly-laughs, and you and your new spouse being madly in love. My photographic style is romantic and real, which isn’t for everyone - and that’s totally okay! Ultimately, I want couples to be present and be themselves on their wedding day, rather than just trying to copy all those pictures on the internet; because there really is nothing more beautiful than real love.
Real talk, if you're choosing a photographer based on price alone, I can't compete and I'm not the photographer for you. There are tons of photographers in the area who are cheaper than me.
If you want the best service and artistry, be completely taken care of every step of the way - from planning to recieving your wedding pictures, and see your portraits printed on your walls, I'm your girl.
