Whether you are eloping in the mountains of Montana or anywhere out west...
Or if you are planning a wedding in Minnesota and working with me or one of my amazing team members.

Welcome to the Sydney Breann Experience!

 I am not much into posing, but I instead prompt you and capture your authentic giggles and interactions. Are you awkward? Yeah, me too. That's why I hate posing! I would rather capture you in your element- hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing, camping- it's up to you! Your photos are just a byproduct of your experience with me. I'm not here to take beautiful photos. I am here to capture you and your love as you are at this moment.

I am a hardcore advocate of ditching tradition and fostering your own unique story. I will always encourage authenticity and adventure while helping you map out your own perfect, intimate experience. 

Sydney Breann photography delivers a unique experience that you will remember with your love forever. Let's hike to mountaintops and frolic in the pines.

For the couples who value spontaneity and the in-between moments...

Tailored to you and your story. Every experience with me is unique and different, as my work and our time together is inspired by nature and your own organic moments.

 I believe in enabling others to be inspired by nature and take pride in leading couples to epic places to celebrate their love in the most intimate and authentic way. Whether you love camping on the weekends with your dogs or snowshoeing groomed trails in the mountains, I am here to be your adventure guide. With your help, we will create a truly unique experience that allows for wanderlust and authenticity.


I am not your normal photographer. I believe in finding peace and joy in the mundane. I believe in the in-between moments that may go unnoticed. I believe in heartfelt conversation and staring at the stars. I believe in straying away from the traditional and common, and chasing something more wild and free that sets your soul on fire.



But here's this thing...
This isn't just a "photo shoot." I am your trusted storyteller so that you can look back on your day for years to come and remember every detail.

Hey there, I am Syd.
Based in Montana and Minnesota.
Your photographer, adventure guide, and pal all in one. I am so excited to get to know you!

Getting married in Minnesota?

– Amanda and AARON

Sydney is AMAZING! Not just as a photographer, but as a person too! She is talented, creative, fun, genuine, professional, and so incredibly kind! We used SD Photography for our wedding and couldn’t be more grateful for her and how she so beautifully captured our favorite day ever! She made us feel so comfortable and encouraged us through all of the changes and uncertainty in planning our wedding amidst the pandemic. We had all 700+ edited photos back within days! From the very first message, we knew Syd was the gal for the job! Would recommend Sydney to EVERYONE!

"She beautifully captured our favorite day ever! "

Sydney shot our engagement and wedding photos this year. She was great to work with every step of the way and we love every single photo we got from her. She is so passionate about her job and it definitely reflects in her work, we love the natural, raw style she shoots and we are so glad we will have these memories captured for a lifetime. I would recommend Sydney to anyone, we can't thank her enough for truly capturing us and our relationship!

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!!

When I was living in Norway last year, Sydney photographed us with my boyfriend. It was the first photo shoot that he and I took part in and what a great experience! Sydney was very spontaneous and advised us with great kindness and professionalism. The whole photo shoot was extremely natural and the result is felt through authentic photos. Sydney is truly passionate about her business and the experience could not have been more successful. I wish everyone could experience this!
This wonderful moment has turned into a wonderful memory for me. Thanks again Sydney!

This is my favorite part! I would love to hop on a phone call or zoom call to answer all of your questions and get to know you better.

Planning

no. 3

This is the first time we will be shooting together, and it is so exciting for you to see how I work and what we can create together. There will be epic locations, so many giggles, and I may make you frolic through the forest. Before your session, we will go over all things outfits, what to expect, and leaving expectations in the car. This is not just a "stand and shoot" experience, but one that involves joy, laughter, and memory making. Honestly, you will probably forget that my camera is even there. My inspiration for your photos comes from nature and your love story.

Engagement Session

no. 4

Your favorite day. Ever.
We have done so much planning, and this is the day. We will talk all the deets way beforehand, but this is where it all comes together. What does your wedding day look like? Honestly, I can't tell you here, because it is whatever you want it to be. There are no pressures, no conforming to norms. Your wedding day is completely yours. Capturing these carefree, organic moments is the most fulfilling thing I have ever done; being a tiny part in your love story is what I am most proud of. 

Wedding Day

Such an exciting part of the process- to see the story of your day unfold!

Still looking for a videographer?

Yes! I take on a limited amount of seniors, and am always shooting adventurous couples! My favorite thing ever is meeting couples in epic locations and capturing that season of life for them. It doesn't have to be an engagement session!

Do you shoot anything other than weddings and elopements?

I am going to say it louder for the people in the back... an elopement is anything you want it to be! Want to fly into your location on a helicopter? What about bringing your 4 dogs along? You can even hike a 14er on your wedding day. My job as your photographer is to find epic locations, give recommendations for other vendors, and capture your unique love story. I am there every step of the way.

What is your elopement experience like?

In my opinion, intimate weddings are around 30-40 guests. Elopements are anything less! P.S. I don't count dogs as guests, although I think I have more dog friends than humans.

What is considered an intimate wedding or elopement?

Yes! My expertise and niche is elopements and small, intimate weddings. However, I do take on a limited amount of bigger weddings per year. If you are inquiring about a larger wedding (40+ guests), reach out now for my availability as these spots fill fast.

I am seeing a lot of information about intimate weddings and elopements. Do you shoot larger weddings?

UM YES! My passion is capturing love while also pursuing my other passion: travel. My travel rates for weddings and elopements are actually already built into my pricing! How handy! Feel free to mention all of the amazing places you want to have your wedding, elopement, or adventure session, and we will work together to find an amazing location to celebrate your love! I have traveled coast to coast and even as far as Norway to capture love! 

Do you travel for shoots and weddings?

Good news...neither do I. I am very much a BEHIND THE CAMERA gal and only hop in front of the camera for headshots or travel photos. My philosophy is capturing you in that moment, as you are. I use movement and prompts to capture your giggles and authentic reactions. I am not into plain-old-posing, and I instead encourage frolicking and spontaneity! 

What if I am awkward? I don't like to be in front of the camera.

I know that this is the most sought-after question. For weddings, I contract 4-6 weeks from your wedding date. However, most of my couples will receive their full gallery much quicker, depending on what time of the year we are in! During busy season (June-October), I may need the entire contracted time.

When will I receive my photos?

Reach out! I take a limited number of seniors, families, and couples every year. My main market is weddings, but I still do a lot of other shoots on the side! I limit myself on the number of these shoots in order to give the majority of my attention and time to my wedding clients.

What if I am inquiring about a shoot that is not listed in your info/pricing on your website?
