We believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

Lex and I have been attached at the hip since 1996. We were those weird sisters who never fought and wanted to do absolutely everything together. And we have! From schools, to gymnastics, to Auburn, to sorority sisters, and now business partners. She is the blonde to my brunette and I wouldn't want to have it any other way! 

We're homebodies with huge hearts for travel, and our happy place is anywhere by the water. We love Jesus, joyful people, cheering on our Auburn Tigers, driving with the windows down, cappuccinos after dinner, and we will gravitate towards dogs in any social situation. 

We have a deep passion for serving those around us with unwavering grace, and we love to use our gifts to bless those around us. Whenever we pick up our cameras, we strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and we can't wait to create images to show that! 

Equal parts sisters, best friends and business partners

meet us


Our love story started at Auburn University in 2013 when I needed a date to my sorority formal. Mitch & I officially became husband and wife on October 19, 2018 and now have a precious puppy to call our own! My best friend, love of my life, safe place, encourager, and the man who will keep me laughing forever. I love you endlessly.

Mitch & sydney



A mutual friend introduced us when he invited Will to join us on a trip to Oregon my last year at Auburn. We will officially become husband and wife on November 21, 2020 and are eagerly counting down the days!

She might officially be Syd & Mitch's puppy, but she's definitely the mascot of Syd & Lex Photography! Finley is a Border Collie, and she steals the hearts of everyone she meets!

We believe in the power of a beautiful love story. In capturing your day exactly as it happened. All of the genuine moments, happy tears, and being surrounded by those you love most. By creating classic images that evoke emotion that bring you back to how your day felt more than how it looked. 

Because the holy sacrament of marriage is beautiful and everything that comes from it deserves to be passed down for generations to come.
