SIDNEY BAKER-GREEN

I'm a fine art photographer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Central Florida; however my camera has taken me some pretty cool places like Toronto & Italy to name a few. Simply put, I'm a wedding photographer that's in love with love. After years of being a hopeless romantic, I found the love of my life, and I can say with confidence that fairy tale love does exist! I approach every wedding knowing that I am not just shooting for you, but also your future children and grand children I'm a dog dad, springboard diver training for the Olympics, and pilot in that order....

The Love of My Life

ABOUT

02

I used to joke about being the single male wedding photographer. Honestly, calling myself a hopeless romantic is an understatement. I grew up in a generation that really didn't believe in love. But all of my prayers were answered when I met Olivia. Now I was oblivious at first. I had no idea she liked me. In fairness, I wasn't used to people liking me... I wasn't used to people taking an interest in me. Little did I know, our little text conversations here and there would change my life completely. 

QUEEN OF MY HEART

We Were Dancing

ABOUT

03

Overtime our conversations got deeper, and slowly I opened up to her with the certainty that she would run away and that I'd end up back at square 1: alone. But.... she didn't. She showed me unconditional love, and more importantly taught me what unconditional love truly looks like. Her kind heart and kindred spirit turned my entire world upside down... little did I know that it would shape my approach to weddings. When my first wedding of the season approached, I realized something hand changed, I shot that wedding not as a photographer doing his job, but as if it was my own. And then things started click....

ABOUT

04

I FELT why the details all the way down to the shoes were important: when I am old and my brain starts to lose it's potency, I want to be able to know for certain that I can remember the best day of my life in it's entirety.  I FELT why the true meaning of tears of joy: because sometimes tears are the best way to express how you feel. But most importantly, I SAW THE BEAUTY IN MARRYING YOUR BEST FRIEND: because I could finally relate to what it means to have someone in your life that loves you to the ends of the earth. When I approach a wedding, I'm shooting for your future children and grand children, I'm shooting for grandma who couldn't make it, and, most importantly, I am shooting for you, becuase this is your legacy

THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE

I'm so much more than just your wedding photographer, and my duties extend well beyond capturing timeless beautiful photos on your wedding day.

You're not just another number to me. I want to become become your friend and your families friend. I'm here to help wherever possible throughout the planning process. 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'm documenting the beginning of Your Legacy.  

After you inquire, I'll reach out to you to set up a time to meet up at a local coffee shop, restaurant, or online so that we can get to know each other. 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 also timeless moments.   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!

ENGAGEMENTS

During the time between your engagement session and your wedding day, I am your ultimate resource. Chances are this is your first time getting married, and if it's your second then you're gonna be ahead of the curve. 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.

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!

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 !

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. Payment Plans Available

THE LOVE EFFECT

In 2012 I set out on a quest: to spread love to the world one image at a time. The joy I get when photographing the abundance of special moments at a wedding is similar to the joy I get when flying a plane: a big cheesy grin. It simply compares to nothing else.

If you like to get in front of my camera, and join me in spreading love to the world, in addition to having some fun, getting a little goofy, and having the time of your life, then shoot me an email! I'd love to hear from you!

"It's a very dangerous state. You are inclined to recklessness and kind of tune out the rest of your life and everything that's been important to you. It's actually not all that pleasurable. I don't know who the hell wants to get in a situation where you can't bear an hour without somebody's company." - Colin Firth
