the experience

After I send over a proposal for your big day and the deposit is made the fun begins. Together we will come up with the perfect location for your engagement session that reflects the love you and your partner share. My style can be described as a mix of fine art portraiture and fun, interactive movement. 

If you're reaching out regarding a wedding, we will be in close contact all the way up until the day of your wedding and beyond.

I believe in powerful experiences and joyous moments. This starts the moment you connect with me. Your wedding is a journey, and I will be by your side through it all as a friend, supporter, and story-teller.

questions

Frequently asked

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

For couples sessions you will receive a minimum of 5o images. For weddings, the number of minimum images you will receive depends on the package you choose. Shoot me an inquiry and I would be happy to design your dream wedding package with you!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY SHOOT?

After you schedule your session I would be happy to send over my outfit inspiration guide.

WHAT ARE YOUR TRAVEL FEES?

If your wedding is within 60 miles of DC or Louisville, KY I don't require any travel fees. Weddings outside of the DMV and Kentucky areas are subject to travel fees. Don't hesitate to reach out no matter where your wedding or elopement is located. I offer reduced fees to locations I haven't been to before, and I love to travel!

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE TO CANCEL?

If you need to cancel your wedding you will be refunded your package cost less the non-refundable deposit.

WHAT IF THERE'S BAD WEATHER?

For couples sessions we can always reschedule for a later date (although shooting in the rain can even make for a fun and unique experience if you're up for it!)

For weddings, we will work with your event venue to come up with a rain plan for bridal portraits indoors, and it will be just as gorgeous!

WHAT IF MY WEDDING DATE CHANGES?

If you need to reschedule I will make every effort to accommodate your new wedding date. If I am unavailable on your new date you will be refunded your package cost less the non-refundable deposit.

WILL YOU HELP ME FIND VENDORS?

Of course! I am happy to share with you a list of some of my favorite vendors to work with.

HOW DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENTS?

I accept payments through my client portal or via check.

WHAT IS A SECOND SHOOTER?

A second shooter is an additional photographer on your big day there to capture the special candid moments and different angles.

When I work with second shooters, I typically have them work with the groomsmen while they are getting ready so I can focus on the bridal party.

HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?

I will travel ANYWHERE! Literally. Traveling is my favorite.

If you think we might be a good match, what are you waiting for?! I only take a limited number of weddings + elopements each year in order to guarantee full attention and a fabulous experience to each of my couples

Aubrey & Nate

She has the most unique and intrinsically kind and genuine nature about her that sets her apart from everyone. she's a WIZARD behind the camera and has the most uncanny ability to bring any vision to life through her style and artistic skill. Sydney shot my engagement photos and the experience was out of this world! She is so unbelievably talented--I certainly cannot recommend Sydney Darwin Photography enough. Do yourself a favor and let this beauty work her magic for your photography needs! :)

I've had the pleasure of knowing Miss Syd for years now and I've got to say--she's the real deal. First off, she's the coolest.

Airial & Dominique

Meeting her in person was even better than the phone conversation. She made me and my fiancé feel comfortable right away, which made posing for shots a breeze. Sydney sent us first look photos within 24 hours of our shoot and I remember gasping at how beautiful they were. I couldn’t wait to receive all of the photos and when we did, we were in absolute awe. I can’t wait until our wedding next year, as I know Sydney will do a wonderful job.

For our engagement session, Sydney took the time to find a location that would match the look I was going for and she nailed it! She arrived early on the day of the shoot to scope out the place to find where she could get the best shots.

Cailyn & JB

Since the day I messaged her, she’s been extremely responsive, sweet, honest, and an amazing person to be around. She has completed my engagement so far, and the pictures came back quick and AMAZING. My family and friends LOVED her work and I was extremely pleased with the outcome. My fiancé and I were playful throughout the session and she remained calm, fun and helped us get amazing pictures out of it. I highly recommend her and think she’s an amazing photographer to work with. I cannot wait for my wedding, just so she can bless us with more great photos. I will definitely look to do more sessions with her outside of my wedding.

I have the pleasure of working with Sydney as my wedding photographer. My fiancé and I found her on Facebook
