Kentucky Wedding Photographer

... but most people just call me Syd. I Kentucky Wedding Photographer based out of Louisville, but my bags are always packed.

I'm an avid yogi, true crime podcast lover, and travel enthusiast. Earlier this year I adopted a sweet senior rescue dog named Duke. If I'm not behind the camera, I'm probably curled up on the couch with him reading a good book. My current favorite is The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides.

My first foray into the world of photography was an art elective photography class during my Sophomore year of high school. And truth be told, I hated it. I couldn't stand that the assignments given were so cut and dry. By the end of the class I was convinced photography was some sort of formulaic approach and not the beautiful art form that it is. None the less, I signed up for Photography 2 in order to complete my art requirement, and the rest is history. 

Before I stepped into the world of full time photography I worked at the Supreme Court in Washington, DC. It was during my time at the court that I discovered that photographing couples and weddings set my soul on fire, and I never looked back.

Behind the Lens

- Your Story Will Be Different

I find myself most inspired by fashion, art, architecture, and poetry, so I'm a true believer in the philosophical position that life imitates art and deserves to be captured in all its glory.. While my portfolio draws much of my inspiration from editorial works, its tempered by the sentimental, imperfect, in-betweens. Those sneaky kisses, moms emotions overflowing while getting in to your dress, your people tearing up the dance floor. These moments deserve to be artfully captured in time.

I'm equally in love with the messy, unplanned and the polished, posed. My approach to photography is a mix of editorial and documentary style. I will guide you through your photographic journey, but will also give you the freedom to allow your connection to thrive.

I'll be your biggest hype woman and best friend along the way. My number one goal is to create a safe, inspiring environment to capture your authentic selves and create art with you.

We're Meant to be if..

You're not afraid to ditch the wedding day norms

You're not afraid to try out of the box ideas and are always up for a bit of adventure
