Welcome to Silvercord Event Photography 


My name is Sally Siko, thanks for checking out my photography work! This is the spot on the website where you can keep up with my weekly wedding photo adventures and behind the scenes info here at Silvercord.

Shown below is a peek at my Instagram feed which is updated daily with favorite photos from my portfolio.


Specializing in Private Estate, farm, and outdoor weddings, I serve couples locally throughout the Triangle region including Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. That being said, as you can see here on this blog, I LOVE to travel, so from the coast of the OBX to the mountains in Asheville, if you are finding a connection here to my style of outdoor photography, send me a shout out because I'd love to capture your wedding day too!
