Nature is the perfect location to exchange your "I do's." It's real. It's raw. And it's adventurous, just like your love.

Society has put pressure on couples to have a large, extravagant wedding for far too long. My guiding light is empowering you to stray from tradition, and leading you to epic places with epic views to celebrate your love for one another. I believe in redefining weddings for your wild and carefree love stories.

Your experience with me is all about the power of being intentional and embracing the in-between moments. It's time to redefine weddings for those who naturally wander.

Nature is unique-it's organic and wild- just like your love. Your story deserves to be captured in the same, natural way.

Are you ready to wander?

And  that's where i come in.

I want to empower couples to ditch tradition and bathe in the in-between moments. I believe in enabling others to be inspired by nature and take pride in leading couples to epic places with epic views to celebrate their love in the most intimate and authentic way.  With your help, we will create a truly unique experience that allows for wanderlust and authenticity.

Sydney captured engagement and wedding photos for us! Our engagement photos were amazing and on a very cold day - Syd was a trooper. Both my husband and I were nervous to be in front of the camera and Sydney made us feel so comfortable! Fast forward to our wedding day (an insanely hot and humid day) and Sydney again did amazing and was so positive and upbeat. It felt like a friend capturing our day! The edits came back extremely quick and were beautiful. We continue to get compliments on our pictures and I love looking back on them to remember the day. I highly recommend choosing Sydney to be a part of your special day! Thank you Sydney!!

Sydney has been an absolute DREAM to work with for our wedding! We had our engagement session in Duluth and she captured us perfectly - natural poses, fun (and fast) session complete with SO many photos to choose from. She is so quick to respond to messages and has been by my side through all of the COVID-related planning and re-planning (and re-planning). We cannot wait for her to capture our day in 4 short weeks. If you are a new bride, make sure to get on Sydney's books ASAP!

Syd shot our engagement and wedding this past summer. She was amazing to work and met our needs, even in the midst of a pandemic! We loved the raw, natural feel of her photos, which truly encaptured us. From the first time we met it was a real friendship with many laughs, making the entire session feel natural. We could not speak more highly of her and can't wait to work with her again!
