Adventure Elopements & Intimate Destination Weddings
Capturing the intimate moments
of your love and commitment to each other
in epic landscapes around the globe!!
Imagine a wildly unique & intimate
wedding day experience
A wedding day that is relaxed and stress free, void of unsolicited advice about how to craft your special day; an intimate wedding day that is primarily unscripted, shared only with the love of your life in a breathtaking landscape, so gorgeous that it literally makes your jaw drop; a day to focus soley on each other, to share your vows and dreams privately; a day full of spontaneity, intimacy, adventure and meaning.
Your elopement is such an intimate and inspiring new chapter in your life together, and helping create that experience for you is insanely rewarding to me. I love to connect with each and every one of my couples, and you might not know it yet, but your history together, the adventure you are already on, and the new chapter you are about to start is so inspiring to me. I will document your commitment to each other, your chemistry together, the intimate moments of you on this one day that you will reflect back on for the rest of your life.
My husband and I eloped to St Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands with 7 of our best friends. We chose St Croix because we loved the landscape combination of the ocean, the beach and warmth of the sun, and the breathtaking mountains in the background. We had an intimate wedding ceremony on the beach and held our reception on a catamaran, where we cut our cake in bathing suits and spent our time in the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
My biggest priority was making it an experience that lasted more than a day (I knew I wouldn't want it to end...), having an photographer document how I envisioned myself immersed in the environment, creating an experience that my friends wouldn't stop talking about, and keeping it adventurous, while relaxing, the entire time! I can honestly say - our wedding photography was easily the best investment we have ever made!
If my story resonates with you, I bet we have a lot in common -- you are determined to elope - minimalistically, in nature, as an epic experience in a location that is impactful to your relationship; it will likely be somewhere epic in the world so you can gather another stamp on your passport, and adventurous, because that's how you roll! I can't wait to hear what you have in mind!
I am so passionate about providing the same
type of experience for you!

Engagements, Vow Renewals & Adventure Sessions
Maybe you had the perfect wedding, but are just looking for a fun adventure in your wedding dress (way more fun than leaving it hang in the closet never to be worn again!). Or perhaps you didn't like your wedding photographer and want a do-over? Maybe you just got engaged (yaaaay!) and want to celebrate with a wildly unique adventure? Perhaps you are hitting a milestone in your relationship, or it's a milestone birthday and want to document it? Or maybe you have planned an epic couple's vacation (and planning a vow renewal!) and are seeking the right photographer? (that's me!)
No matter the session, my aim is to capture and document your love and connection authentically, creating photos filled with raw emotion and beauty. If you can dream it, I can help you make it come true! Whatever the occasion - this will be one adventure that you will never forget! You will re-live the day over and over again through my photography!
Fill out my inquiry form below with all of your thoughts, and I'll get to know you. I will help you with logistics, travel planning, vendors, etec. I'd be HONORED to help you find a location or destination that will tell your story best, and document your love story.
Whether planning an intimate wedding OFF the strip in Las Vegas (the red rocks are stunning as a backdrop) or crafting a destination wedding in the Maldives on their exquisite beaches; or using a favorite National Park as a backdrop; or perhaps marrying among the elephant herds in Africa -- I will help by taking your ideas and make them magical, down to the detail! I will focus on making YOU and YOUR LOVE feel like you are the only two that exist on YOUR day, wrapped up in each other, completely taken back by the magic of the day.
Remember, photography should be THE one element of your day that you should invest in. Why? Because it's the only thing that will tell your story for the rest of your lives. Memories, details and flowers will all fade away, but photography will bring you right back to that moment in time. Let me help create these important memories that will last forever!

My experience with Sherry was unforgettable. We had a destination wedding in Whitefish, Montana and West Glacier Montana. She made both myself and my husband feel so comfortable for our wedding photos. Before my wedding, my husband wouldn't even take engagement photos. After the wedding he said he can't wait to take more photos in the future with Sherry. Having a destination wedding, I thought it was going to be so hard to get the photos I wanted. Our photos are not like anyone else's. If you are looking for photos which are unique and artistic she is the one to use!! Sherry listened to what we wanted and then gave us much more! I don't know any other photographer that can make me look and feel more beautiful! - April
Here's what previous clients have to say:
Our time with Sherry a few days before our wedding was truly unforgettable and magical! Sherry was so positive and professional from the first moment we met, and maintained it throughout our 5-hour photo session (even when crazy squalls moved over and we were getting soaked!). Pete and I had never had a photo shoot like this before…The session with Sherry made us feel even more excited about the wedding on the Saturday because it was a special 'time out' away from wedding prep - just us and the hills (of Edinburgh, Scotland)! Sherry has such an amazing eye for beauty, lines, color and poses, and genuinely cares about getting the best from you. We will treasure the photos forever, and have had so many compliments on them already! The only difficulty will be selecting which ones to get printed and framed - there are so many gorgeous ones!! We met as strangers, but parted as friends - I love that! Thanks so much for your time with us, Sherry - you're brilliant! Rach & Pete
We were fortunate enough to shoot our engagement photos with Sherry in Banff National Park, Alberta Canada and all we can say is WOW! Sherry did a wonderful job of making us feel comfortable from the very beginning until the end. She made sure we were at ease in front of the camera which made for a relaxed day of shooting! She has a wonderful eye for the shots that you are looking for, and gets the shots you would have never thought of yourself. We both throughly enjoyed our day with Sherry and couldn’t be more thankful for her time and the stunning photographs we were able to get. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Destination Anywhere Photography with Sherry! Sean and Sarah
