Hey I’m Sharlee!
Your Elopement Photographer Expert
I’m passionate about out-of-the-ordinary weddings for a reason.
eloping = experience
MORE THAN JUST YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
I’m totally stoked to hear of your elopement decision! Deciding to break the rules of “normal” society standards doesn’t just happen overnight and neither did my decision to photograph elopements.
I’ve spent the last 10 years of my photography journey discovering that I love connecting, creating, and capturing intimate weddings. It’s amazing to give the empowerment to couples like you to take the reigns in deciding what their wedding will represent and experience together.
Not only will I be your photographer to capture your love story authentically, but I’ll help you craft it up from the very beginning. I’ll help you dream, plan, and organize your day because I care about how you experience your wedding day – not just about the photos.
Even planning a small wedding can feel overwhelming and I’ll be your personal elopement expert to help guide you along the way so you two can focus on the joys of wanderlust!

Just a bit about me…
Growing up in a small town of Idaho, I was lucky enough to be surrounded by beautiful wildflowers, mountains, and streams as my playground. I spent childhood years exploring the outdoors by swimming, hiking, camping, and fishing.
I picked up picked my first camera over 10 years ago taking photos of nature, which eventually led me along the journey to elopements. I instantly fell in love with seeing couples make a wedding day that is meaningful to them while connecting with nature.
Not only am I a huge lover of being outside, but I’ve always been a crazy animal person. I’ve been a Certified Vet Tech for the past 6 years and absolutely love when couples bring their fur babies along!
I moved to Oregon 5 years ago, where I currently reside with my husband, dog, and cat. I love music, new food, travel, camping, hiking, and video games.
I can’t wait to chat and get to know you!

Why I Love Elopements
Elopements allow you to feel free in your wedding plans and produces photos that represent your relationship.
Getting married in a spot that isn’t a stuffy wedding venue not only gives you unique photos – but an entirely different wedding experience.
During your elopement you’ll be able to feel like yourselves and have meaningful memories to look back on.
how my photography is different
I’ve poured out hundreds of hours dedicated to learning and perfecting the elopement experience. I’m also working on learning new things to serve you better.
I don’t bring along any set poses or make you feel like a prop. You don’t need modeling experience, I’ll capture your relationship authenticity.
adventure + pet-friendly
I’m always down for documenting couples that bring their pet(s), include animals, or showcase your favorite outdoor activity! I’m a Certified Vet Tech and seasoned nature enthusiast.
