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 photo adventures, view my live Instagram feed, read my outdoor wedding tips & advice plus get a sneak peek at all of behind the scenes happenings here at Silvercord.

Specializing in photographing 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 message out because I'd love to capture your wedding day too!

August 17, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

One of the ways I try to keep things as comfortable as possible for my clients during our engagement sessions is to spend as much time as possible in the shade. Summer engagement sessions are fun but when you’re taking photos here in the south, heat exhaustion...

An unexpected visit in my yard

August 10, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
Just took a picture a few minutes ago of the first Yellow-Billed Cuckoo I’ve ever seen. I’ve been editing all morning and took a quick break from my work to step outside on my porch and there this little guy was just perched in the tree next to the house. I had just enough time to step inside and grab my Canon and snap a couple of pics before he f...

That’s why so it’s super important fo...

My campsite for the weekend

August 03, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
This is my home away from home when I’m on the road. It’s great to spend time outdoors and honestly glamping is kinda awesome! I’ve got a wedding in the mountains in a couple of weeks and am thinking of bringing the RV. For now, it’s just great to enjoy some time in the woods with my family.
