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!

Checking out the inside of the barn at Snipes Farm Retreat

June 20, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
It was nice to come on inside to the air conditioning in the main barn reception area to take a few photos before everyone arrived. Snipes Farm Retreat is an excellent venue to get married outside but it’s pretty darn great that there is a place here to escape the summer heat on wedding day!..... #raleighweddingphotography #outdoorweddingphotograph...

Happy to return to Snipes Farm Retreat for a wedding in Chapel Hill

June 18, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
This is the view that greeted me when I arrived at Snipes Farm Retreat in Chapel Hill a few weeks ago on a warm Saturday afternoon. As you can see, it was looking like maybe rain was on the way. I was not unhappy about this because I absolutely love cloudy skies when I’m shooting. It’s especially neat when the sun peeks out and makes those dark clo...

24 K love, Golden Hour photography time at Shady wagon Farm

June 11, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
Nothing quite like portrait time in a field set ablaze by the setting sun. It’s fun to try and capture the most pleasing light, that which truly lends the feel of the moment at hand. As some of you know, I learned the art of photography “backwards” which is to say that I learned how to use a flash in a studio first and then moved on to using “natur...

Check out this gorgeous wedding that I photographed last week for my clients B & C at Snipes Farm in Chapel Hill, NC. The first thing to note was that this couple did things a little differently than the 'usual schedule-wise, and you know what? It was awesome! Soon after B & C's arrival at the farm, we got started taking the "formal" photos first...
