for the kind hearted and adventourous 

Wedding & Family Photographer

I am New Jersey based but willing to travel to make your wedding or engagement dreams come true! In my spare time I love hiking, kayaking and camping with my boyfriend, Dan (pictured on the right). Although we are very active we have a lazy side and love cuddling up watching Yellowstone, The Marvel Movies and binging Brooklyn Nine Nine. Exploring new places, meeting new people and capturing genuine moments are things that .....

you've found the one you love. i'm here to capture the beginning of your adventure.

Hey friends, I'm

Moments small or big matter. How you experience your wedding matters. Your wedding is important to you, to your family, friends and to me. I know you've never done this before and I got your back! I will be there to help you throughout the entire process. Let's do this thing!

MY GOAL IS TO MAKE YOU FEEL AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE SO YOUR PHOTOS ARE AS AUTHENTIC AS POSSIBLE.

My Approach

Where do I begin ? She exceeded ALL my expectations. I honestly couldn’t be happier. Every time I look at my photos I can’t help but just have a huge smile on my face. My fiancé and I booked Sydney for an engagement shoot. We got all of our photos back 24 hours later ! Which is literally unheard of . She is literally the most amazing photographer. I can’t recommend her enough. If you have a significant other who is shy or isn’t a fan of taking photos – book SYDNEY! She is constantly giving direction on how to pose and get the perfect photo. She made us feel extremely comfortable since the moment we met her. There was never a moment where we were just standing there doing nothing. The photoshoot went by so quick – which was good for my fiancé . I got all the poses I wanted. I am BEYOND happy with all my photos. I will be using these photos for my save the dates, bridal shower and frame some for our house. I have nothing bad to say about Sydney and her work. I will definitely be using her in the future. The only complaint I have is that she is booked on my wedding date. I can assure you – you will have no regrets booking her. If she is free do yourself a favor and book her! 

"You will have no regrets booking her"

I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT MY PHOTOS WOULD LOOK LIKE FOR MY ELOPEMENT. WANTING SOMETHING SO SMALL… I WAS WORRIED MY PICTURES WOULD BE BORING. BUT WORKING WITH SYDNEY, SHE MADE EVERYTHING SO FUN. SHE KNEW HOW TO GET US TO LAUGH AND SMILE NATURALLY FOR PHOTOS. CAPTURING THE LOVE WE HAVE FOR EACH OTHER SO PERFECTLY. SYDNEY MADE TWO VERY CAMERA SHY PEOPLE, ENJOY TAKING PHOTOS! I HAVE PEOPLE TELLING ME THEY WANT TO REDO THEIR WEDDING JUST SO THEY CAN TAKE PHOTOS LIKE MINE! I’M BLOWN AWAY BY HER WORK AND SO GRATEFUL WE GOT TO WORK WITH SYDNEY!

We highly recommend Sydney without hesitation! Sydney photographed three days across our wedding weekend. In advance of the wedding she met with us multiple times to get to know us and our style/vision. She meticulously planned out a flow of events, including every variation of family portrait we wanted - no small feat -, so that on the day of the wedding she captured everything, effortlessly! Sydney interacted with and won over all our guests. She was understanding that we were not used to getting our photos taken and gave gentle, clear directions. She was enthusiastic, professional, and a delight to work with. We couldn't be happier with how our photographs turned out and we are forever indebted to Sydney for capturing memories we will treasure for a lifetime. 

"She also has such a calming energy"

WOW WHERE TO BEGIN! I FOUND SYDNEY THROUGH ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER MY SISTER WORKED WITH AND WE COULDN’T BE MORE BLESSED TO HAVE FOUND HER TO CAPTURE OUR WEDDING. SYDNEY MADE THE ENTIRE PROCESS SO EASY AND EFFORTLESS. EVERY TIME WE SPOKE TO SYDNEY PRIOR TO THE WEDDING SHE WAS SO HELPFUL AND REALLY MADE US FEEL LIKE WE WERE TALKING TO A FRIEND. SYDNEY IS THE SWEETEST PERSON, ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY COMMENTED HOW GREAT SHE WAS. SHE ALSO HAS SUCH A CALMING ENERGY WHICH MADE US FEEL VERY GRATEFUL TO HAVE HER BY OUR SIDE ON A NORMALLY VERY STRESSFUL WEDDING DAY! SYDNEY WAS SUPER FAST WITH OUR SNEAK PEAK AND THE REST OF OUR WEDDING ALBUM. OUR PICTURES CAME OUT SO BEAUTIFUL, I AM CONSTANTLY GETTING GREAT FEEDBACK FROM FRIENDS, FAMILY AND EVEN STRANGERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA ON HOW STUNNING OF A JOB SHE DID. WE COULDN’T BE MORE HAPPY WITH HAVING SYDNEY PHOTOGRAPH OUR SPECIAL DAY. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE WHO WANTS A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT IS NOT ONLY INSANELY TALENTED BUT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE WORKING WITH YOUR FRIEND DURING THE PROCESS!

SYDNEY WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE PERFECT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER. SHE WAS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH, INCREDIBLY ORGANIZED, AND WENT ABOVE-AND-BEYOND ON THE SMALL DETAILS TO MAKE OUR WEDDING DAY (AND THE PLANNING IN ADVANCE) SEAMLESS AND ENJOYABLE. SHE WAS TRULY A PARTNER FROM BEGINNING TO END, STARTING WITH THE ENGAGEMENT SHOOT THAT HELPED GET US COMFORTABLE, ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE BIG DAY. OUR WEDDING PARTIES AND FAMILIES LOVED HER AS WELL -- SHE WAS THE PERFECT BALANCE OF KIND AND DECISIVE (WE EVEN FINISHED PICTURES A LITTLE EARLY!). BEST OF ALL, OUR WEDDING PHOTOS TURNED OUT EVEN BETTER THAN WE COULD HAVE IMAGINED, AND WE'RE HAVING A HARD TIME PICKING OUR FAVORITES FROM ALL THE BEAUTIFUL SHOTS. WOULD 1,000% RECOMMEND FOR ALL YOUR SPECIAL MOMENTS!

"She was the perfect balance between kind and decisive"

Sydney was absolutely amazing to work with! She was easy to communicate with and responds quickly. She answered all my questions and totally accommodated any changes or requests I had regarding our shoot. Between outfit changes, dog pics, and even a date change - it wasn’t a problem!

Sydney is passionate about her work and it truly shows in the images she captures. From start to finish, Sydney made us feel comfortable and made this whole process easy and fun!

I highly recommend Sydney, & I am already looking forward to future shoots together!

"Sydney made us feel comfortable"

I can't wait to meet you, and tell your story through photos that will last a lifetime! Let's get together, grab some coffee, wine, heck even some ice cream! If you are not comfortable meeting in person or live in a different state, let’s set up a zoom date and have our coffee, wine or ice cream over video and chat!

Now I want to get to know you!
