photos that feel something

I'm a dreamer of love and a seeker of adventure. I love to capture life as it is - raw, organic, and beautiful. I believe that life is worth celebrating and one of the greatest gifts I have been given is the opportunity of celebrating you.

I want to create moments for you to remember. I'm over the same old same old and want your experience to be fun and uniquely you. I like to call my style "classic with a twist." Going for authentic, timeless photos but without sacrificing the real and the raw moments too. I want you to look at your photos and feel what it felt like then even after fifty years. 

I pour my heart and soul into everything that I do and being trusted to capture your story is one of the biggest honors I could ever receive.

I'm currently based out of Thomasville, GA, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to travel to capture your wedding, elopement, or any celebration - wherever that may take us. 

my friends call me Syd

Hey there, I'm Sydney 

Thomasville, GA based wedding, elopement, and portrait photographer.


"Sydney is more than a photographer who took my engagement and wedding photos. She is a friend - someone I got so excited to see on my wedding day because of the consistent joy and peace that radiates from her. She captures every special moment and does not do the whole "fake pose" thing. Every picture she took of my husband and I expressed genuine heartfelt emotion. Sydney truly does what she is good at for God's glory and I cannot wait to continue to see how the Lord blesses her gift of photography to further the Kingdom."

So after our engagement pictures, we hired Sydney to do our wedding. Best decision we made the entire wedding planning process!! The pictures are S T U N N I N G. And she and Miranda captured every single moment. Not to mention they are so sweet and incredibly easy to work with! We are so glad we asked her to photograph the most important day of our lives!

Hi! My name is Leila Hurst and I am a senior at Thomas County Central High School. I had a session with Sydney last week, and I enjoyed working with her so much! Sydney creates a fun, energetic environment and I can honestly see that she loves what she does! Plus she is amazing at it! My senior pictures could not have turned out any better!
