Sawyer Baird is a destination wedding, editorial, + travel photographer based on the East Coast and traveling Worldwide. Sawyer Baird currently resides in Brooklyn New York and is often traveling throughout the South East to visit family and friends… and to get her ‘southern’ fix.
My journey as a photographer began at a young age, I've always been inspired by photographs and the stories that they tell. I began working with photographers in the Atlanta area at sixteen years old, learning as much as I could. Later finding myself at Savannah College of Art + Design in Atlanta studying photography + interior design. Bringing me to how I approach weddings today, with a fine art and yet documentary approach. Today I use film and digital photography to execute my work. I love being in the moment and capturing the little moments along with the fine details that help tell the story of the day. With editorials I strive to make you feel something as you look at the images that allow you to connect with the subject.
I love being an artist and telling your story through photographs. Your story is so important to me - your story as a couple, as a brand, or as a place. We all have a story to tell.
