Photos by Kara Kamienski Photography

My name is Sydney, just like Australia. I’m a Midwesterner by heart, but nearly always cold. I take pride in the fact I can make my home state with my hand. In college I fell in love with a local, Alex, he stole my heart in October of 2011. We eloped in Vik, Iceland in April of 2019 and we both couldn’t speak more highly of the entire experience! Together we have 3 wonderfully spoiled dogs (Kodak, Forte, and Mac), a cat (Seymour) as well as chickens and ducks. I have a tattoo of a camera with my Grandmothers initials and I wear the same necklace 24/7 365. I hate shopping for clothes, and my favorite color is green.

My photography style is real, authentic and emotion. I look at a wedding day as sharing your love story, where my lucky job is to capture your heart and excitement. I admit, I’ll make a few bad jokes in order to get a laugh, but I keep things simple and highlight the candid moments between two people continuing in their next great adventure. Once the excitement of a new marriage has faded, I want you to look at your wedding photographs with smiles and tears in your eyes, and, of course, a bit of laughter in your heart from the amazing story that was just beginning to unfold.
