alaska ELOPEMENTS & intimate weddings

Live & Love Fearlessly

I invite you to be yourself. I don't care about your age, size, gender, or lack thereof. I care about the heart that you wear on your sleeve and those dreams you and your partner share. Love is raw and rad and revolutionary, and your wedding day should be too. Be prepared to motorboat, piggyback, or roll around in the sand. My goal is to capture emotions and movement and the environment around you. to create images you can FEEL every square inch of! If this sounds like your cup of tea, contact me and we will work closely together to create the photos and the wedding day that you've always wanted.

How does it


When the honeymoon is over, and you've experienced trials and tribulations in your marriage, looking back at these images will be priceless. Hang your wall art, flip through your album, pass it on to your grandchildren, and enjoy reflecting on this fleeting moment in time.

Step 6. Cherish your Memories

Six to eight weeks later, after editing and retouching is complete, I will come to you (or zoom with you) to show you your final images for the first time! You'll cozy up for a slideshow. You'll get to see our heirloom product offerings, and this is when you'll decide how to use your print credit!

Step 5. The Big Reveal

If we need to travel to your ceremony, whether it be by foot, boat, plane, or kayak, I will document the whole journey. During your ceremony, I will remain as discreet as possible while capturing those pivotal moments.  Once you've officially tied the knot, then comes the epic portraits.

Step 4. Get Fuckin' Married!

I always show up to elopements a little bit early to familiarize myself with the location, lighting, etc. If you're getting ready separately, I will capture some of those moments and details, and will help you organize a first look if you choose.

Step 3. Getting Ready

Once you're booked, we will work together to make your day as dreamy as possible. I will send you a detailed questionnaire, prep emails, and we'll text ideas back and forth until your elopement day! We can also plan your engagement or boudoir session!

Step 2. Planning

We'll chat on the phone for about 15-20 minutes about you and your partner, what sort of photos you're envisioning, and discuss details like session location, pricing and availability. If we feel like a good fit, we'll book your date!

“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!”

“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.”

“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!”

“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.

- Sonja P.


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!

Then we bring rubber boots and jump in the puddles! Juneau is a rainforest after all. Sometimes we have to make the most of what mother nature gives us. Pro tip: some of the most romantic photos occur in the dripping wet rain.


What if it rains?

This really varies depending on the length of your elopement or session, On average, you can expect to see 50 to 100 images per hour.

How many images will I get?

Absolutely! They are an important part of you and your life and absolutely deserve to be included in your engagement or elopement!. I have plenty of experience with kids and animals, just be mindful of their physical limitations and extra expenses if we are hiking or traveling by plane or boat.

Can I bring my pets/kids?

Absolutely! Whether you're considering Hatcher's Pass, Hawaii or Havana, I'm in! I offer different collections for local, non-local and international weddings.
