About Sydney Contois

The Beginning

Wedding Photographer

My name is Sydney. I am the owner and person behind the camera at Sydney Contois Photography.

Photography has been my passion since before Digital cameras were even a thing. My photography went from a hobby/passion to a career when I had my first son, I remember photographing him and my eyes would swell up with tears because I was so amazed just watching him and thinking “I want to remember this moment for the rest of my life." It was then when I realized I wanted to capture these memories for other families. Time goes fast and it is my promise to provide beautiful memories to look back on and cherish for the rest of your life. 

I have 3 beautiful children, Barron (9), Deegan (6) and Kingsley (2). I am fueled by my love for them and it pushes me to constantly strive to provide the best most memorable life for them! Photography gives me the opportunity to be a Mom and a business women. I thrive off human interaction, I am a huge people person and there could be 100 people in a room and I could build a connection with every single one of them! I am a TV show junkie, binge watching shows, coffee, rainy days and the fall/winter seasons are my favorite. I love adventure and laughing until my tummy hurts! I promise you, my goal during our session is to get the most real and raw shots as possible, even if it means being a goofball to make you laugh. I am not shy and I have more energy then most people! Im a junk food queen, Pizza, Tacos and Burgers are L.I.F.E.

Although I am based in Palm Springs, California, I travel throughout the valley, as far as Orange County and surrounding areas. No destination is too far for my clients. Photography is my passion and I enjoy meeting so many different people at different locations.
