Hey, I’m Sydney. An intimate wedding and elopement photographer based out of San Diego, CA.

I am for the couples full of heart — the wild souls who march to the beat of their own drum. The lovers that know life is meant to be savored and want their wedding day to reflect that. My passion lies in the idea that every couple should be able to celebrate their way — wholly, unapologetically, and maybe unconventionally.

This is about feeling those deep feelings. Crafting days full of heart and intention, not obligation.

"Sydney's work always leaves me speechless, jaw-dropped, and my heart feeling so happy it could explode. I honestly still get shocked when I look through the photos she shot of my wedding, making my husband and I look like such cool, hip couple. "I'm like, THAT'S US?!" Truly so thankful to have found Sydney to shoot our most special day and to now have her in our lives. Not only does she have such a creative and magic eye for capturing the best candid moments, she is such a beautiful person inside and out. I've never been professionally photographed before finding Sydney and I was actually so nervous in doing an engagement shoot with her when the time came. I was worried if any awkwardness would show in the photos because of how anxious I was. But when the day came, Sydney seriously makes you feel so comfortable with your significant other and with herself, it's like we've known her for forever! I don't know how, but she somehow captures the most special moments that you don't realize the day of, but it's something you can treasure forever."

"Sydney! We are absolutely dying, they are perfect in every way — you caught details that we didn’t even see that week and seeing everything through your eyes was truly something special! These were the photos I only dreamed of having and you made it all possible. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!! You’ve given us the gift of instant nostalgia that we will cherish forever and ever."

"I stumbled upon Sydney’s photos on instagram and when our wedding was cancelled due to Covid and we decided to elope, my mind immediately jumped to Sydney. Professional, bubbly, easy going, golden hearted - the list could go on for days. She helped make our elopement feel like we were on the trip of a lifetime with best friends. Kept things calm, flowing, and seamless. Your photos are the one tangible item you’re left with when your day is over and trust me, Sydney is the one! She has a great eye, timeless colors, and captures the emotion in a way like no other."
