Hello, adventurous soul!
Hey friends! I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Sydney, the gal behind the lens. First off, you must know that this isn't a place where you'll find stiff, boring poses or someone telling you to say, "cheese." Cast + Forge Photography is a place for the adventurous and young at heart. This is the place to document your epic love, the dreams you’re building, your deepest hopes, and your biggest celebrations; this place is about legacy. The name Cast + Forge means to shed light on your story and to forge it into something tangible that you can hold close to your heart forever. It also means chasing golden sunsets, savoring the dusky shadows, and forging our own paths. Every time I pick up my camera, my intention is to help you slow down and be present in order to capture what’s most meaningful to you in an authentic way. This is achieved through exploring our surroundings, fun and playful interactions, and pausing for the quiet and intimate moments to happen organically. I’ve spent seven years sharpening my skills and defining myself as an artist and lifestyle photographer. I’m happiest and doing my very best work when I’m photographing families, newborns, couples, weddings, adventurers, and small businesses looking to up their branding and content game. Do you fall into one of those categories? I’d love to work with you. Want to make sure we’re the perfect fit? Here are the basics: I lived in the PNW all my life, I love coffee, cats, mountains, the ocean, golden light, moody shadows, traveling, the My Favorite Murder podcast, all things Harry Potter, babies and kids (especially my own), Target, Joanna Gaines, road trips, the perfect crew neck sweatshirt, summer and fall, tacos, Disneyland, hanging out with fellow girlbosses, coloring my hair (currently blue), and the Lord. If any of that made you say, “yesssss!” then we’re well on our way to becoming BFF’s and a match made in photography heaven. Hit up my contact page and let’s make some magic!
