Destination Wedding & Elopement Photography
for the trailblazers & the rule breakers

I want to tell your story, from the big picture to the tiny in-between moments. From the earth-shaking events that shaped you into who you are today, to the way you wrinkle you nose when your  partner makes you laugh and the way you close your eyes when the wind catches your hair. The beautiful, messy, love story of you, so that one day you can hold this photograph in your wrinkled hands and remember what a beautiful life you lived. 




We Hired Sierra Wilson's photography services, for our wedding on the Mendenhall glacier in Juneau AK As it is on glacier we had short wedding ceremony but we really appreciated Sierra Wilson work when we saw final pictures! We don’t know how she could capture those amazing pictures in 40 mins on glaciers! Sierra is a professional and understanding person, she spoke to us for 30 min while booking about our expectations and delivered them 100% Great quality of work! We are happy that we hired her for our special day! Sierra made it beautiful with her creative skills. Strongly suggest her service.

WOW!!! We are absolutely thrilled with all of our amazing photos! Sierra is such an awesome person and was able to capture every special moment throughout our day! She knew exactly what to do and say to make us feel 100% comfortable. Looking at our photos brings us right back to that moment! Thank you Sierra for being such an amazing piece of our wedding day! We can’t wait to come back to Alaska for our next adventure! For sure Sierra will be a part of it!

We booked Sierra for our Juneau wedding photos and WOW! are we ever happy we did!!
Not only is she an amazing photographer (that’s clear from her website!), but she managed to make us feel relaxed and comfortable, and we had fun!! (and that’s saying a lot because we do not usually enjoy having our photo taken lol). Thank you so much Sierra for making the whole process simple, for going over and above, and for perfectly capturing us!!!

- Chelsea and Dan G.


Sierra is amazing! Her lighting style immediately drew us to her when looking for wedding photographers as we wanted to capture the vibrance and joy of our big day. She met those expectations with her beautiful photos and was also such a pleasure to work with. She is calm, organized, very approachable, and a great communicator, which allowed us to relax and just have fun. Thank you, Sierra!

“I had a lot of confidence in Sierra as a photographer but I was still pretty sure I would hate the pictures because I hate all pictures of me. I totally had a panic attack about it before arriving. And I LOVE these pictures so so so much. I adore them all, it actually made me cry” 

- Melanie


“Taking photos with Sierra is fun and easy going. The experience was really special and intimate. No pressure to be perfect, and just capturing the moment in its most natural state. The final product turned out beautifully too! I would recommend any couple to schedule a session with Wild Iris Photography!” 

- Kayla T.


“Working with Sierra was very easy. She was so sweet and very receptive to my ideas and added ideas of her own. When we got to the site she brought chocolate for my daughter as a special treat which was so thoughtful. She made beautiful maternity photos for my family to look back on for years to come. I would highly recommend her for your family photos.”
- Samantha


“Sierra is such a great person to work with! She has a great eye and always has such a positive attitude!” 

- Brandi


“Sierra is a very patient and caring Photographer, always going the extra mile to make sure you get exactly what you want.”

“After a lifetime of feeling uncomfortable in my own skin I was nervous and excited about my boudoir shoot. My partner and I were immediately at ease with the professionalism and direction that Wild Iris photography continuously gave throughout the shoot. A lifetime of uncertainty was turned into confidence! Seeing just a glimpse of our photos has us so excited to see the rest - we know without a doubt that not only photos will be something we cherish but the experience as well. Highly recommend!” 

- Chloey


 “We loved our experience with Sierra. She was so easy to work with and we had fun during the session. Our photos turned out fabulous!”

“If you have ever been on the fence about booking a shoot, I’ll tell you right now you absolutely won’t regret doing so with Sierra. She is so great at making you feel comfortable and working with extra awkward people like me” 

- Kerstin K.


“Sierra is an AMAZING photographer and really catches the beauty in a photo. She is kind, sweet, honest and really cares about her clients. I cannot recommend her enough. I would give her way more than 5 stars. She makes you feel so comfortable, confident and gorgeous during the shoot. I’ve done 2 shoots with her so far and I CANNOT wait to do another one with her again. Sierra is a serious blessing! You will not regret getting your photos done by this gorgeous lady!”
- Ambree


Sierra took my daughters Senior photos. She is an amazing photographer! Sierra is fun, honest, easy to work with and really cares about her client needs. She had a lot of great ideas. We really loved the final product and highly recommend Wild Iris Studios. 

- Lecia K.


I cannot recommend Sierra enough. We used Wild Iris for Senior Pictures. Our whole experience was about so much more than just pictures. My daughter has never been a fan of having her picture taken. Sierra really took the time to get to know her and what she wanted before the photo session. Sierra arranged for hair and makeup before the shoot which was so convenient and turned out amazing. She has an excellent eye for perfect photo spots and made sure my daughter was comfortable and enjoying the shoot the entire time. When we received the final photos I was speechless. They are so beautiful. They really reflect my daughter’s personality. Everything went above and beyond my expectations and I look forward to using Wild Iris Photography again in the future.

It has been an honor to work with Sierra. She works magic with her camera lens. I'm super excited to start sharing her creations from our branding photoshoot together last week. She made me feel at ease right away. And her images reflect me as an artist; fun, messy, colorful. I highly recommend her work!

- Christine K.


I had a great time on my branding photoshoot. Sierra put me at ease, captured my essence beautifully, and her work has made my business better. Thank you, Sierra! I can’t recommend her enough.

- Christine C.


Sierra knocked it out of the park! I'm incredibly happy with how my images turned out.

- Hollis K.


Working with Sierra from Wild Iris Studios was amazing. She is an absolutely phenomenal photographer and she is easy and quick to communicate with, has an awesome eye for photos and overall just a super fun session. I highly recommend her!

Sierra photographed our styled elopement and the whole day was just amazing! She is so easy to work with & gives the perfect amount of instructions and freedom to have as much fun as you want to with it. Her pictures turned out better than i could have imagined & really captures the love and joy from that day. We will cherish her work forever. EVERYONE should have Sierra photograph the big & little moments in their lives

- Paige & Xavier W.


Hey There, I'm Sierra

I'm a mother, wife, creator, and dream-chaser. You can often find me with my head in the clouds, feet in the mud, and a third (or fourth) cup of coffee in my cup. I call everyone dude, I randomly break out into song, and I will wade in freezing water to get THE shot for you.

When you work with me, you can expect to dance, run, piggyback, motorboat, swear, laugh, and get messy. So what I'm saying is: wear comfortable shoes, throw the rulebook away, and don't take life too seriously (none of us get out alive).



Wild Iris Studios began in 2017. Since then, supporting clients through pivotal moments in their lives through photography has grown into a passion. We believe every human of every age, size, sexuality & nationality is beautiful, unique, and worthy, and we love helping them express that through the art of photography. Wild Iris Studios has been featured in online and print magazines as well as in art galleries. See the About section to learn more about Sierra and her accreditations.

Then we wear rain boots! Juneau is a rainforest after all. Sometimes we have to make the most of what mother nature gives us. If it sprinkles or drizzles, we can make some truly beautiful photos from it getting muddy and puddle jumping. However, I also want this to be a positive experience for everyone, so If it's pouring and windy, we will reschedule.


What if it rains?

I am located in Juneau, Alaska, which is on the ancestral land of the Tlingit Aanii and a part of the Tongass National Rainforest. Juneau 

Where are you located?

I'm so glad you asked! I adore travel and have photographed clients as far Las Vegas and Oklahoma City. See the About section of the site for more info and contact me for availability!

Do you travel?

I have photographed people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and nationalities and learned from some of the best photographers in the industry. I have studied posing and extensively and I even know how to coach for facial expressions to bring out emotion in your photos. All you have to do is trust in the process.

I'm not photogenic, how do I know my photos will turn out ok?
