To unleash your elopement is to let go of tradition and create your connected & authentic wedding adventure – 

Your wedding day should be full of meaningful memories, experiences, and unique traditions that reflect who you are as a couple. You deserve a photographer that isn’t just there to show up and take pretty photos. You deserve a photographer that actually gets to know you and help create an amazing elopement. Your elopement deserves a fun and stress-free planning experience from the day your decide to elope! If you’re looking for a photographer that provides much more than images, I’m your person. I’ll be your elopement photographer that will help you create and plan an authentic wedding adventure that will be cherished for a lifetime, because you deserve it!

You deserve to have the nature led adventure of your wildest dreams.

If you’re a lover of the great outdoors, you know what it means to feel connected to the Earth. I strive to create nature led & connected wedding adventures that will bring happy memories for a lifetime. It’s incredibly thrilling to say “I do” to your one and only while soaking up the great outdoors and be able to come back to that exact spot years to come. Whether you’re wanting to hike a 14er at the crack of dawn, climb the red rocks of the desert, or soak under a waterfall to celebrate your marriage – I’ll be there for any wedding adventure you could image. Nothing it too wild!

Why I choose only to photograph elopements

Letting go of traditions can be scary and feel overwhelming, especially if eloping involves you “excluding” family or friends that you value. I’m here to let you know that eloping isn’t selfish, standard, or less real than a regular wedding. In my opinion, eloping is 100% more real and meaningful than typical traditions pushed upon you on your most special day as a couple. Eloping is incredibly powerful and I have found my true passion in life to create and document a wedding day that represents couples in their most true and happy forms of themselves. I believe that is the true meaning of eloping.

What you can expect when you hire me: 

  • Full day documentation to preserve your memories for a lifetime
  • A customized “How to Elope” guide that will help walk you through every stage of the elopement process
  • Recommended vendors, lodging, and checklists specific for your elopement location
  • Permit, legal, and logistic help
  • Unique timeline of your wedding day
  • No extra travel fees
  • Convenient online gallery + shop of your images
  • A new friend that is 100% up for any adventure with just the two of you, friends, family, or your pets

What’s your next step?

Because I value authenticity – I do believe that our values should fit like your favorite pair of jeans! So if you value hand-crafted experiences that are catered to exploring the outdoors on your wedding day, let’s chat. Feel free to message me here, email me at: [email protected], or fill out my contact form here to get started today!

Happy adventuring – I can’t wait for you to let go of the pressured traditions of a big wedding and create a memorable wedding adventure!

Our experience with Sharlee was everything we could have hoped it to be, if not so much more. To start, we wanted our ceremony to be in Utah, which was a challenge in itself being that we live in Oregon. Sharlee knew all the steps to take to make sure we could have photos at our ceremony in the location we wanted, including what permits were needed (which seemed like the most daunting of tasks). She was also great about asking us what our vision was for our ceremony so she could get the best photos possible, and she really delivered on getting those photos. I mean, WOW. To start, the moments she captured are the moments we'll want to look back on, so many years from now. From us getting ready, to the ceremony, to cute moments after the ceremony and everything in between, she caught it all. She even made on-the-fly-adjustments to make sure we got the perfect photos when things didn't go quite to our original plan, and did so in such a professional and smooth way that you almost would have thought she expected it to begin with. We received a preview gallery in the midst of our honeymoon, which made it feel that much more special, and the photos are AMAZING. The photos combined with her editing style are beautiful and timeless, and I know they will be something we lovingly look back on for the rest of our lives. We absolutely made the right choice on who to hire for our big day and will be greatly appreciative of what she did for us for our the rest of our lives. I cannot recommend her highly enough for your big day, as I know you'll be ecstatic as we are about our photos.

Sharlee made us feel very comfortable. She didn't make us pose, instead she just let us love on each other and let us be natural. She laughed with us and made us feel great. If you are looking for someone who will make you feel comfortable, find amazing locations, and provide amazing images I highly recommend her!

Blanca + Billy

My husband and I are so grateful we have Sharlee’s beautiful photos that captured our elopement. Not only for our memories but to share with our family and friends since we decided to have a private ceremony. So thankful!

Sarah + Chris

Honestly Sharlee goes above and beyond. My partner and I had an amazing experience taking pictures with her and they turned out beautiful!!! She really cares so much and wants to get to know you as a couple. Definitely recommend!

Keegan + Amy

Sharlee was so much fun to work with! Our elopement was seriously like hanging out with a best friend and also getting absolutely STUNNING images at the end of it! My wife and I cried while looking through our gallery because the photos were so full of the joy and silliness that we love in our relationship. Words can't describe how perfect the whole experience was. Thank you Sharlee!!
