Hi! I’m Sydney Danielle Bien-Aime, and I’ve been photographing wonderful families and brides since 2012. I’m currently based in the upstate region of beautiful South Carolina, closely neighboring Charlotte, North Carolina. A few things to note about me are that I’m happily married to my fun, handsome husband, and our last name is French for ‘good friend’. I’m a Jesus lover and a Disney fanatic! Peony flowers are my favorite, and I adore gorgeous wedding details. Also, photographing whimsical, stylized children’s portraits gives me life! I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do the work that I do and meet fantastic people along the way.
A little of my history behind the camera started when I got my first tiny silver, Kodak camera at age 16. It didn’t take long for me to become obsessed with nature photography and start staging shoots with family and friends. Little did I know that my passion for pictures would help unfold my dream and profession years later. In college, I had the opportunity to shoot my first wedding, and I’ve photographed over 50 to this day. As you can see, my style is vibrant, full of color and natural light. Weddings and child portraiture have become my specialty. From capturing a child’s personality on camera; to catching a groom’s face as he sees his bride for the first time; to documenting those authentic, candid moments is what my brand is all about. What I love most is creating memories through my camera that will last for generations to come. It’s truly humbling to see and hear from brides and families how Radiant Photography by Sydney Danielle has grown into something that they love and trust. I owe it All to God–He’s AWESOME! I just want you to know that my goal is to discover and capture what makes YOU special. My focus is to serve you on your big day, making sure your cherished moments are safeguarded. Let’s make your day Radiant!
