If you've been hunting for a life-changing portrait experience that will leave you empowered like the baddie you are, the bubbly Sydne Barnett Studios team is probably your answer! We love to laugh, we're always down for a spontaneous hike, dance in the rain or splash in the water, and nothing lights this team on fire like cheering for badass women who are learning to embrace their unique, perfectly imperfect, beautiful selves.
Loved shooting with Sydne!! She's the coolest gal and I have no problem saying that I won't be looking elsewhere. I've modeled in the past and I can honestly say she by far is my favorite photographer! She brings an atmosphere of fun and confidence to the room and I highly recommend her.
I did a elopement wedding and a couple boudoir session and my husband and I loved every moment with them. They were so accommodating to our request for the elopement. And for our couple session made us feel so comfortable. We have gotten so many complements on our photos. They are now the photographer I will always call for any event I need.
Sydne & Joel Photography is so amazing! They make you feel comfortable and at ease. My pictures came out so candid, real and beautiful! Honestly one of the best photographers I've ever worked with! A HUGE thank you to Sydne & Joel Photography for helping me love me for me!
learn more about us
Most days, you can find us playing with our sweet son and baby daughter! We're mostly known for our crazy love story, resilience, and longstanding ability to nauseate our younger siblings with our constant PDA.
Those closest to us tell us they love our genuine passion for our friends, family and clients, the way we've learned to play off of each other over the years, and our laid back go-with the flow energy.
We love serving the world by capturing and sharing joyful and passionate moments and creating images that will tell your story for generations!
Just a couple of high school sweethearts, turned wife + hubby team. We believe life needs color, love needs laughter, and that most problems can be solved over a great cup of coffee.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
We love creating gorgeous, true to life images full of color, and dramatic, film inspired black and whites! Most of your session will be carefully directed in order to create images that look natural, while still shooting in a way that feels flattering.
WHY DON’T YOU RELEASE ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE?
We make it a professional practice to not give away any raw or unedited images taken during our sessions and events. Ultimately, we do it as a service for our clients to save you time!
We're professional curators, and we review thousands upon thousands of images every year, select the best, most flattering portraits that meet a professional standard, and make sure our clients get to see all the best ones without the hassle of choosing between very minute differences.
We go through so many sessions and events every year that we're very efficient at what we do, and are happy to (humbly) report that we can do it in a fraction of the time most people can! We show you only the best images, so it's easy to pick the perfect pieces for your custom collections!
DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
Yes! We professionally retouch all of our sessions! Authenticity is huge to us as we want to capture images that are true to you, so our retouching is light for most sessions. We're happy to get retouch temporary features, like acne, bruises, scratches etc.
We don't perform extensive retouching that warps or alters the way our clients look. It's our philosophy that if it's permanent, or authentic to the moment, we don't alter it! Additional retouching is available upon request, for an additional fee.
IS STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY AVAILABLE?
Yes! We have a natural light + professional studio light studio - head shots, beauty, maternity, boudoir and branding are all available in studio!
WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
If you need to reschedule, we appreciate as much notice as possible. We require no less than 72 hours, unless in an absolute emergency.
While our retainers are non-refundable, we will do everything we can to accommodate a reschedule request. Be aware that our weekends can book up far in advance! We cannot guarantee that we can add an additional session time.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?
Our retainers are non-refundable, as we have reserved that date and time in our calendars, and turned down all other potential business.
ARE ANY IMAGES INCLUDED IN MY SESSION FEE?
Digital images and printed products are purchased separate from the session fee, at your reveal and ordering appointment!
We only sell heirloom items, meaning everything you bring home will be archival quality and will outlive all of us! Our clients really love that we're able to guide them through picking the best images for their albums and wall art, and custom designing the spaces in their homes! The in person reveal is one of the funnest moments for our clients, and is one of our favorite parts of the portrait process!
