creating and documenting authentic wedding memories in nature for wildly in love couples

Why Should You Elope?

Your elopement should be about creating meaningful memories, epic experiences, and unique adventures that reflect who you are as a couple and not ones that you were pressured into. 

I know letting go of the expectation and pressure that comes with traditional weddings can be scary, but I‘m here to help guide you to your authentic adventure, together.

Elopements allow your ultimate freedom of choice and I’ll help you create it!

Eloping provides freedom to let go and have fun!

If the stressful planning, family drama, or performance of  a big wedding performance doesn’t sit right with you – eloping might be for you!

Not only will the elopement planning process be enjoyable, but you’ll start off your marriage with the wedding adventure you actually want.

You deserve a wedding day that allows you to be completely yourself without judgements of others so you can adventure and have fun!

Elopements are the most authentic and meaningful way to get married

Eloping is your most special adventure yet

Have you ever had that perfect adventure day with the one you love? Maybe it’s that picnic on your favorite beach, or a towering mountain you climbed all day to sit and enjoy the view together…

What if on your wedding day, you got to do that special adventuring hand-in-hand with your person? What if you got to choose what your entire wedding day looks like? What if you actually enjoyed and savored every moment of that day?

That is exactly what happens when you choose to put your love and wants above outside opinions – because it’s YOUR day and it shouldn’t be any other way!

With an unleashed elopement, your wedding day is yours to create.

why i love adventure elopements

Elopements provide you with the ultimate freedom to choose every aspect of your wedding day and I couldn’t be more stoked about your elopement decision!

I want to help couples to feel empowered to let go of the fear of outside pressures that come with a traditional wedding and create a day that creates meaningful memories!

Eloping provides you with an everlasting experience that is meaningful and creates a lifetime of cherished memories that you’ll actually remember.

Your wedding day is much more than photos – it’s a once in a lifetime memory.

Why should you hire an elopement photographer and creator?

Documenting your love story authentically is so much more than just showing up on your wedding day! I believe the best way to have an elopement is to hire a photographer who will also help create your special day from the moment you come into contact with me.

Not only will I photograph your entire wedding story with intention, but I’ll help you plan your day from start to finish while having fun!

Every step of your elopement process will be customized and authentic – just like you.

I truly believe connecting with my couples as if I were hanging out with my best friends. Your elopement is intimate and special – you deserve a photographer who gets that and will help you with location choices, permit help, vendor recommendations, and creating a customized day for you two. 

Get to know your Oregon photographer and experience creator -

I’m Sharlee – an elopement photographer based in Portland, Oregon living with my husband, dog, cat, and hedgehog.

Not only am I an outdoor enthusiast and frequent traveler, I started my photography career as a landscape photographer.

I’m extremely knowledgeable in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Utah and love traveling around the World for your elopement.

I’m super passionate about specializing my time and skill into creating a whole elopement experience for you – not just photos.

Our connection with nature means much more to me than pretty photos. It’s about the core memories we create while enjoying the great outdoors with the people we love – that’s the beauty of elopements to me.

Include Your Pets on Your Elopement!

Because pets are so much more than animals – they’re our best friends.

Growing up, my childhood always included animals. Whether that was obsessing over wild life, or sneaking in pets to my home – animals have brought such a special joy to my life. I know your pets mean the same to you!

With a strong background in pet experience, as I still serve as a Certified Veterinary Technician- your pets are always welcome for your elopement day if you so choose.

There’s so many options that can fit perfectly into your elopement day. Just let me know if you want them to tag along and we’ll create the funnest experience for you all.

Leave No trace for elopements

I’m so excited to photograph your special day in our beautiful planet. As a fellow adventurer, I knew I wanted to photograph amazing couples like you that cherish the outdoors and bring that shared interest together in a unique wedding experience.

We have a huge privilege of being able to access such amazing public lands as a backdrop for committing your lives to each other. Instead of paying thousands for a wedding venue, public lands give us the best venue in the world, for nearly free. That’s pretty freakin sweet!

With that, comes the responsibility for all of us to keep our “venues” looking gorgeous – so you two can come back to that spot in 5, 20, or 50 years, and for it to still look and feel the same as when you tied the knot!

So as your Oregon elopement photographer, I’m excited to help you two create a beautiful outdoor wedding day that’s as kind to the planet, as it is to us.
