Minnesota based Wedding + Elopement photographer 

Poetic & Filmy

ready to travel wherever your love goes

Let’s melt into the moment, by making your photos look the way poetry makes you feel. For me, it’s not about capturing something perfectly posed- because life and love are not perfect. When you think of your people, how do you feel- Like warmth on a cold winter's morning, or like anywhere with them is home? I document HOW you love each other through organic imagery, because it’s not about what it looks like- it’s about what it feels like. I can’t wait to preserve your moments.

hi there, i'm Sydney Leigh

Founder & owner

Your photographer here -


I’ve never encountered the same connection twice, and that’s why I live for documenting romantic stories- seeing how differently people love each other is a breath of fresh air. My art is a mix between timeless with a touch of class and playful yet romantic. A little about me, I grew up on a farm in Minnesota and still live only 30 miles away, so my heart is always home - but I have a genuine love for traveling especially if it means I can document your story too. I pour my heart and soul into each couple.

Love            from you


We had Sydney take our engagement and wedding photos! She has an unbelievable talent for what she does and made both experiences so effortless and fun for us!! She captured every moment imaginable on our wedding day and has such an efficient, professional, yet fun and sweet demeanor that is so needed on your big day! She is truly one of the best in the area and without a doubt I would book her over and over again.

Sydney and her team did the most AMAZING job with our pictures and video!! She made sure the day went seamlessly and assured me I didn’t need to worry about checking the time / schedule for the day. She made sure we were where we needed to be with time to spare. Pictures went quick and efficiently. I had many bridal party members comment on how impressed they were with her. Her experience absolutely shined through! Sydney and her team were positive, high energy and made sure I felt at ease throughout they day. She’s the ultimate hype woman! I highly recommend Sydney to anyone and everyone getting married! The images we received back were everything I dreamed of and more! We are beyond grateful Sydney and her team captured our most favorite day!

Sydney left me and my husband in AWH! We were just blown away with our experience. She was quick, fun, and made us feel so comfortable. She captured real moments between us and made us (who are so NOT photogenic) feel so comfortable in front of the camera making us laugh and stay real throughout the whole shoot. Her bright personality and passion is the cherry on top of the whole experience. We would go to her 10x over for photography. Her work is beautiful, she gets back to you so quickly, she’s creative and overall the whole package. Forever recommending her!

We booked Sydney for our wedding photos and she went 100% above and beyond what we could have ever imagined. If I could give her 1,000/10, I would. We were so comfortable in front of the camera, and she was prompting us and playing games to make it easy on us. Not to mention the pictures are freaking amazing. Magazine worthy!

When showing up to our session, we were very nervous and awkward. She made both of those feelings completely go away! She creates a supportive environment hyping each person up and makes sure you are having fun to get some timeless photos! She is very kind and has fast returns on photos! I recommend her to everyone because she leaves you speechless and amazed with her work!

Working with Sydney was an absolute DREAM! She is creative, sweet, easy going, your personal hype woman, she makes the session feel natural, and let me state the obvious - she is SO talented!! I truly can't recommend Sydney enough. From setting up the session to receiving the pictures, she was extremely professional and easy to work with. Sydney made the entire session an absolute blast through her creativity and fun prompts to capture the perfect "candids" that everyone loves to have. Even my husband who doesn't enjoy pictures said how fun he had after we left. We can't thank Sydney Leigh Photography enough for capturing these gorgeous pictures! We are so obsessed.
