this is nostalgia you can take with you.

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

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.. wow. Just wow. You are SO incredibly talented and your vision is just so beautiful. Getting to meet you and spend the day with you was such a cherry on top of such a great day. Thank you so so so much for your time, your talent, and your kindness. Just know you always have a couple of Canadian friends!"

"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."
