SIDNEY BAKER-GREEN

I'm a fine art photographer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan; however my camera has taken me some pretty cool places like Toronto and Hawaii to name a few. I love creating elegant and classy images, but even more so I am devoted to providing the best wedding experience to my couples, because simply put you deserve nothing but the best experience. 

Outside of the camera, I am a pilot, a diver (springboard not scuba), a ballet dancer, an ex barista with a pro home coffee setup, and a proud dog dad to my boys Aladdin & Landon

ABOUT

02

As a wedding photographer, I have one chance to get that perfect shot. There is no rewind button, there is no, "go back and do that again." The fleeting moments of a wedding day only happen once. Similarly, you only get to live the biggest day of your life one time. Which is why you deserve the best. You shouldn't have to make compromises on the best day of your life. This is why I shoot a select number of wedding a year, and get to know my clients (I hate that word) as friends. I am fully committed to you, and want nothing more for you to have the best wedding experience possible.

YOU DESERVE THE BEST

Destination Weddings

ABOUT

03

Traveling has truly shaped the way I approach photography. While I love weddings close to home, there something about a new environment that just lends to extra creativity. Plus honestly it's the ultimate package for everyone involved. You get not only the biggest day of your life, but also a built in vacation (or if your honeymoon is in a different destination as well, then a pre-game vacation). There's nothing more I love than showcasing you and your significant in some of the most amazing places and destinations our planet has to offer. 

A LOVE FOR TRAVEL

My Why

ABOUT

04

I put so much effort into not only my client experience, but also my images, because I understand that I am not just shooting for you: I am shooting for the sick relative that couldn't make, and you friends and family that simply couldn't be there. I am shooting for the future daughter and son, as they will one day sit on the floor and shift through mommy and daddies wedding pictures the same way we did our parents and grandparents. I want you to have the best experience possible because you deserve nothing less as you begin with this very small part to a very big legacy. 

I LOVE THE IMPACT OF WHAT I DO

THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE

You DESERVE the best wedding experience possible. You need a photographer that's more than just a vendor, but a friend who cares about your big day just as much as you do.

You're not just another number to me. I want to become become your friend because when clients become friends, not only are the images so much more amazing, but so is the experience. I take this job seriously because I realize that I am not just shooting for you: I'm shooting for the people that couldn't make it. I'm shooting for you're future children and grand children. I truly want yo to have the best wedding experience possible.

After you inquire, I'll reach out to you, and set up a time to have a virtual consultation. I choose virtual consultations because time is always of the essence, and I want to get to know you as soon as possible. The first step to working with each other is determining if we are a good fit! I serve a very specific type of bride and groom: one that is head over heels in love with each other, a couple that wants more than just pretty pictures; but the best wedding experience possible. I've found overtime that the best way to ensure a good wedding experience for my clients is by getting to know them! If it turns out that we are indeed a good match, then we will proceed with the booking process!

THE PROCESS

01

THE PROCESS

FACETIME / SKYPE CONSULTATION

Pop a bottle of champagne, because you and I were definitely made for each other! It's time to make it official and secure your date! I'll send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your package, sign your contract, pay your deposit, and set up payment installments ! Everything you will need will be in one location. This keeps everything organized and helps eliminate stress. 

THE PROCESS

02

THE PROCESS

MAKE IT OFFICIAL

Let the fun begin! After you book, we will schedule your engagement session, and we will work closely together to find the perfect location. Photos aren't easy for everyone, but don't worry, I will teach you guys everything!  You're only job during this time is to relax and love each other. I'll take care of the rest on the photo end. Engagements are so much fun, and so important because I get used to you guys as a couple and you guys get used to my photographic style; thus, when the wedding day comes, you guys are PROS!

THE PROCESS

THE PROCESS

ENGAGEMENTS

During the time between when you book and your wedding day, I am here to make sure you have the stress free wedding process you deserve. I want you to be able to fully enjoy the state of being engaged! I never want you to feel overwhelmed with the responsibilities of planning. Chances are this is your first time getting married. I on the other hand have been photographing weddings for 6 years! I love using the knowledge I've accumulated over the years, working with many different vendors, to help my bride and grooms in the best way that I can! I'll always be a phone call or text away! Ps. SBG Couples Love My Group Chats

THE PROCESS

04

THE PROCESS

A HELPING HAND

The day's of stressing out over a timeline is over! Remember how I mentioned that I send contracts through an online client lounge? Well, same goes for wedding timelines! About 90 or so days out from your wedding, I'll gather some basic information from you that will allow us to curate a wedding timeline based around photography! This ensure that the day is not only stress free and has a little room for unexpected circumstances, but also ensure that there is adequate time to get the photos you truly want and love!

THE PROCESS

THE PROCESS

TIMELINE CREATION

Your big day has arrived! It's time to celebrate, relax, soak it all in, and let me get to work! This day is going to be a blur: things are going to happen, and they are going to happen quickly, so during the reception, I play a same day slideshow of 50-100 images that I captured leading up to that point. SBG brides love how it allows them to take it all in! My favorite time is the portrait time with my couples, but it's not the one that happens after the ceremony: I make sure to pull you away after you've enjoyed the reception a bit you both can watch the sunset and decompress as newlyweds! 

THE PROCESS

06

THE PROCESS

YOUR BIG DAY!

The very next day after your wedding, you will receive a next day slideshow with an additional 50-100 images showcasing the entire day! I love the next day slideshow because it allows my couples to relive every moment while emotions are fresh! You will receive your full wedding gallery within 2 days, yes 2 days after your wedding! In that gallery, you can also order prints, frames, calendars, etc through your gallery and share directly to social media, friend, and family members! If the package you selected comes with an album, then you will receive an album voucher !

LOVE NOTES

Where do I even start! If there were an I unlimited about it stars I would give them! He well deserves this review. I've never shout with Sidney but my engagement Photos to my Wedding were AH-MAZING! He captured every moment in its raw form! My hubby loves them and so do I! When you get married things happen so fast and having the wedding slide show helped me take it all in. Seeing the slideshow gave me the same goose bumps as when I walked down the aisle! Thank you so much Sidney!

Sidney was absolutely phenomenal during our Wedding! While he took photos, he had us laughing, complemented us constantly, and did everything he could to get us to feel comfortable in front of the camera. He really brought out our personalities, and documented the real us! We can't stop looking at our photos!

INVESTMENT

Wedding photography is the most important investment. You want to make sure that you not only have a great experience, but also after the bride tribe disperses, after the make up comes off, after the dress has been hung, and after the flowers have withered, that you will always remember that night. 

Of all the planning decisions you will make, this is the one that will last for generations. I will listen to your needs, and create a package that fits you. I will never leave before the last moment is captured. This is your happily ever after... this is your legacy. Make no compromises when it comes to your special day.
