Sherrlyn just gave us our engagement pictures and they are so awesome. We are so excited that we booked her to photograph our wedding next year. She has so far made us feel good, everything is easy and she is so much more than someone who just snaps pictures. She is a caring wholesome person with amazing talent. Her works spans from human rights photography she did in Congo and Iran to taking these fantastic pictures of our engagement. I'll let you know how our wedding goes!

Fantastic Photographer. Sherrlyn is professional, friendly and most of all super creative. Our photos are not like anyone else's. She is a "real" photojournalist and we found her from a friend who is an editor at NBC TV. She has a great reputation and because we wanted our photos private we paid a little extra to keep them forever private. I would describe her work as delicate, creative, unique and raw. We love her.

I was lucky enough to take a photography class by Sherrlyn. She is very professional person and has a positive attitude even when the situation is complicated. I would trust Sherrlyn with any important event I was having. She is flexible and can adapt to unexpected situations quickly. She is a very talented photographer.

Sherrlyn is a wonderfully creative and fun photographer. She has lots of experience taking photographs for magazines and newspapers...she truly is a photojournalist in every sense. Her pictures tell a story, and aren't just posed planned shots. She is really fun to work with, and will travel anywhere to do a photo session. My husband and I got married in Aruba, and she traveled all the way from Oregon to be with us. Without hesitation I would suggest Sherrlyn to any bride or groom looking for shots that are artistic, and that will show the truth and beauty of your wedding story.

I miss you two. I hope that your marriage is just wonderful and as happy as you two are
Sherryln took some boudior photos of me as a present for my husband, a newly popular fad going on, and they turned out great, I can't believe how comfortable she made me feel while I was around her. She made me laugh and have such a great time, my husband was blown away when he saw the shots she was able to capture, I can wait until we have another excuse to have Sherrlyn take some more photos of us. I have work with and for other photographers in the past and by far Sherryln is the most down to earth, fun professional person. She comes highly recommended.

Mrs. Lance you were such an easy woman to photograph and it was my pleasure to bring out that essential beauty that you already are. I tell everyone about what you said, "my husband's jaw fell open and he said, 'who took these pictures'!" I'm sure it was very happy to know that it was a woman. Your photos are just gorgeous as are you.
