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!
