Hi there! I’m Cherlyn, an engineer by weekday and a self-taught outdoor photographer by weekend. I call PNW my home and I am deeply passionate about climbing mountains and being surrounded by the peacefulness of nature. My itch for adventures all started when I completed my first summit hike at Mt. Si and has now extended to backpacking, canyoneering, and mountaineering to name a few. I enjoy capturing the beauty of the outdoors and the joy of other adventurers with my camera.

alpine wanderlust is about my zealousness for the outdoors and hopefully inspiring others to get outside in pursuit of Earth’s natural beauty. Check out my blog to get inspired for trips or my guides to get started exploring on your own!

Outside of landscape photography, I also do couples adventure/engagement photography at Cherlyn Eliza Photography. And, as if that weren’t enough, I love to bake and document it all at vanillawhisk.

If you’re interested in collaborating, whether on photography projects or adventures, please reach out to me via the contact form! Oh and I also sell prints here!
