Sydney was awesome in helping us with our wedding photos. She was very personable from start to finish. She visited the wedding site with me before to discuss locations and she had great suggestions about types of photos and where. Her communication was impeccable. She has a super comfortable vibe that made me feel very at ease. The day of the wedding her support was amazing. I was a nervous bride but Sydney had this calm spirit and I will always remember how she said “you got this”. It was exactly what I needed to hear. She takes the guessing work out of everything. She’s so professional and our photos were beyond amazing. It was a magical day and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

We had an excellent experience with Sydney. From start to finish, we couldn’t have been more pleased. Her communication was prompt and thorough and she was flexible with our scheduling over the Christmas holiday. To top it off, the final product was amazing! We are going to have trouble choosing which pictures to order because there are so many great shots. Sydney is the best, we’d happily use her again and recommend her without reservation!!

We had our engagement photos done by Sydney – and they were beyond anything we could have hoped for! Aside from the AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL photos, Sydney was an absolute joy to work with. She is fun, knowledgeable, and professional. We got our pictures back within just a few weeks and even received some sneak peeks right after the photo shoot. We highly recommend her and will definitely be using her again in the future!

Sydney has done two photo shoots for my husband and I the last few years.
She is caring and thoughtful, really puts you at ease during the shoot where you start to relax and just have fun. I am not a lover of having my picture taken, but Sydney has changed that for me. I hope to use her next time we get to the Baja.

Syd is not only an amazing photographer, especially for someone so young, she is also one of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. Her professionalism coupled with her artistry made for an incredible engagement shoot. First we were amongst 100 year old cacti, a wild bumpy road … all leading to an incredible palm forest and on to Playa Las Palmas, where we had fun and sand during those magic moments of Golden Hour.
She gave us so many incredible shots that it was one of those “tough choice moments” when deciding which ones would go on our wedding website. She is an incredible human and I couldn’t recommend her more. Head to Baja California Sur, find her and do the thing! You won’t regret it. Even if you’re the kind of person who hates getting your photo taken (like my fiancé was – she put him so at ease that I couldn’t believe how relaxed he looked in all the photos).
I think the energy of this trio of us – nature loving boho souls – drew the wild horses from the beach and they followed us up the trail as we walked back to the car. I will be forever grateful for that experience with my fiancé and Syd. Seriously, couldn’t have been better!
Rava and Stephen – Canada
My husband and I wanted a very small wedding with just our siblings and parents. We both agreed that having pictures of this special day was so important! Sydney is definitely the best at what she does. When I asked if she’d be willing to travel and be our photographer, she was so willing and excited. This made me feel even more excited for my big day. My husband is very shy and well, we both aren’t comfortable getting our pictures taken but Sydney made us both feel so comfortable and at ease. She has this way of making you feel at home and at times we forgot we were even getting our pictures taken.
The pictures came out beautiful! We are so grateful! Sydney did an amazing job. It was an experience we thought we might dread, however Sydney made it the most fun and memorable experience. Every anniversary my husband and I spend time going through our pictures and tears come to our eyes remembering our big day.
If you’re hesitating booking Sydney because you live far away, don’t be! You wont regret booking her and you will have pictures you love for a lifetime!

We had the privilege of working with Sydney on a shoot a while back. Not only was she very professional, but so easy to work with! She has great talent not just in her photography skills, but also the ability to make people feel comfortable, bringing out each personality, and that carries through into each photograph. I hate having my picture taken, yet, somehow she was able to capture our relationship honestly, perfectly, showing our love in each photo. Thank you so much Sydney, we hope to be able to work with you again in the near future!
Rachel Dotchack – British Columbia, Canada
Syd is the best at what she does. But the cool part is, she doesn’t act like it. And I mean that in a good way. She’s annoyingly friendly in an “omg why can’t I be that nice to strangers?” way. She’s casually professional if that makes sense. She took our limited time together trying to chase the sun and turned it into a top quality gorgeous gallery that screams wholeheartedness. She’ll walk through any thorn bush you can find!
She also listened carefully to the vibe and wishes I had in mind and kept my pictures true to my style. If you’re thinking about booking her, don’t think, just book, you’ll thank me later when you’re crying over your pics.”

Had a great senior session with Sydney! She had some awesome locations picked out for the shoot and overall made the whole experience fun and comfortable. The photos came out great, definitely recommend!”
Rhyan Brown – Washington, USA
I had Sydney take my senior photos and man, she did not disappoint! She not only captures the true, natural feeling but also makes you feel so comfortable when doing it. She knows a great balance of letting you be candid and then assisting you with posing. I love how she’s always down for an adventure. If you tell her you want to go hike up a mountain and take photos up there she would be right there with you! Her photos are never over-edited and always have that natural, glowy feeling.
Sydney will always be my first call when I’m in need of a photographer, and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Mackenzie Feyka – San Diego, California, USA
“I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to work with Sydney when my husband and I hired her to shoot our November 2019 wedding in Todos Santos. I’m so grateful she was our photographer because she is absolutely amazing! From the beginning, Sydney was eager to hear my ideas about our wedding and what we were looking for in a photographer. She took the time to meet with my mom and I when we went to Todos a few months before the wedding to check out our venue. I really connected with Sydney’s warm, friendly vibe and was impressed by her portfolio of work. Sydney went above and beyond for our wedding, even coming to our rehearsal the day before to check out the angles of light at the beach to see where best to position herself during the ceremony. On the day of our wedding, Sydney arrived early to capture my girlfriends and I getting ready, and brought her (also very talented!) brother along as a second shooter. He was able to get some really cool overhead shots of our wedding using a drone. My husband and I wanted to get some pictures together after the ceremony with each other and our families, but didn’t want to miss out on too much of our reception. Sydney completely understood how important it was for us to be present and not miss out on the party, and was able to get a bunch of amazing shots of us, without taking us away for too long.
Looking at our wedding photos, I’m astonished by how many great pictures Sydney took! She has such an artistic eye.
I would describe it as the perfect blend of documentary style photography and a few beautifully staged shots. I especially loved all the candid moments Sydney captured.
It’s truly an honest reflection of what our wedding day was for us, and we will forever cherish these photos. We shared our photos with all of our guests, and multiple people commented that we had the best wedding photos they had ever seen, and how talented our photographer was.
Thank you Sydney! You are truly a beautiful person inside and out, and I’m so thankful that you captured our big day.”

“We are all loving the photos you took of Mom and Dad for their special 70th Anniversary. You made it fun for them and very comfortable. You’re amazing at what you do. Thank you again for capturing this special time.”
Cindy Gates – Oregon, USA
“Thank you so much for such a wonderful photo shoot!!!!
We LOVE our anniversary photos! The way you captured the lighting in the clouds and the scenery and especially us! Our pictures are beyond our expectations and you made the experience itself very memorable.
You are so easy going that you made us feel relaxed so we had fun doing this with you. And yet you are very professional in how you capture the moment.
I hope we can make it down there in the future and meet up with you again when you are available for our next session.”
Brian and Debbie Nason – British Columbia, Canada
“Sydney is such an incredible photographer. She made me feel comfortable right away and
empowered to express myself fully. She really took her time and went above and beyond during the photoshoot. I am so excited to have hundreds of new images I can use on my website and Instagram. I can’t wait for our next shoot and highly recommend working with Sydney!”
