Traveling, exploring & new adventures

Meet Sherry

Hi, I’m Sherry Nelsen—a Wedding Photographer and Elopement Planner —located in beautiful Sechelt, BC with my husband of 33 years! Our relationship has been a rad adventure and we’ve been able to take all our love and spontaneity and use it to encourage our four children to pursue their dreams. Now, it’s my turn to pursue mine! My turn to rediscover the core of who I am as an artist and photographer. I love the outdoors—both the farm we live on and the ocean all around me—so I’d rather be outside in nature than in the kitchen, although my husband did witness me bake banana bread once! Riding my horses or my mountain bike or hiking around the forest and mountains is what fuels my creative soul. My goal with every session is to take classic, timeless and epic photographs that capture the essence of who you are and make you feel that moment again every time you look at your photos. 

Before I transitioned to a full-time adventure elopement and wedding photographer, I spent years as a personal trainer and, although I know they don’t seem to go hand-in-hand, it actually helped me learn to find the best angles and poses while being able to direct my clients on how to move. This makes for some incredible pictures. That, and I know the coast like the back of my hand, so I know all the sweet spots for the best scenery and the best hidden gems. Lakes, beaches, forests—wherever you want to go—I got you! During your elopement, surprise proposal, engagement session, or wedding, we’ll hang out, walk around and have some fun and, because I’m not only creative, but intuitive, I promise you’ll feel like we’re best friends who could swap life stories over a couple of Coronas (my fave). I can’t wait to talk to you, hear your story and work with you to create an amazing photography experience. Please contact me to schedule your complimentary consultation!


Yes, 2020 to 2022 were quite eventful and challenging for many people around the world due to the pandemic. However, it's great to be able to move around again and that I am blessed to be living in such a beautiful place as BC's Sunshine Coast.

If you are looking for an intimate wedding or elopement on BC's Sunshine Coast, I am a life long resident and can supply the best of vendors and resources to make your elopement or intimate wedding everything you ever dreamed of! Message me here to get your free consult!

We are very impressed! How were you able to take so many pictures from all different angles! Especially during the ceremony… we never saw you!!
We had a great time reliving our special day!  The memories you created for us are priceless!  We can’t wait to share them with our friends and family.
Next time we are in Sechelt, we would love to take you out for a beer!
Thank you so much,
Cathie and Mike
