About

On WeddingWire since 2013

We are a pretty fantastic husband and wife team who capture candid moments, with the kind of upfront direction that guides but does not smother.
We take the kind of pictures we would want taken of us. Photos that show a couple at their best. Real moments and interactions, adventures, and most importantly (of course) those awesome candid shots you want!

The Most Incredible Duo!

Where to even begin with Ellie and Will? They are honestly the most kind, sweet, caring human beings you will ever meet. It was our second time working with them/seeing them (engagement shoot in 2019) and it felt like we were friends for so long. They were so excited to be there on our wedding day, you could truly feel it. I literally let them guide us throughout everything because I trust their vision. I am not someone who knows how to pose in front of a camera, but they know how to guide you - which I truly appreciate! Ellie and Will have an incredible positive energy - they literally hype you up during your personal shots with them. But they also know how to really blend in naturally with the entire wedding environment. There are some photos we got and I honestly don't know how they got those photos because I didn't realize they were there. They both work so great together, sometimes it's like they are reading each other's minds LOL! That's how incredible their work is. After the wedding, we had so many of our family and friends say how professional Ellie & Will are and how great our photos turned out. The editing that Ellie & Will do on the photographs are truly pieces of art. If you ever question what area in your wedding you should invest, definitely invest in photography, specifically The Ashers.

Our original wedding was supposed to be in May 2020 and we literally had to change our date three times because our entire guest list was traveling. They were both so incredibly supportive and empathetic throughout the changes. We were just so glad that we were able to keep them as one of our vendors. The only thing I regret is that I didn't book them for the 10 hour package as we only did 8 hrs. So if you are thinking whether you need those extra 2 hours - yes you should. They are that amazing and I wish they could document everything in life!

Stunning photos and incredible to work with

Look no further for your wedding photographers. Ellie and Will are incredible at photography with an attention to detail. We loved their work and when we got our wedding photos back we were blown away at how well they captured the day. It鈥檚 been five months post wedding and I still haven鈥檛 ordered photos yet because I want to print them all. Not only that working with them was a delight. Ellie was so patient with me switching venues and many COVID delays, stuck by my side for two years of planning without wavering. They are so fun and friendly, brought great energy on the big day. Seriously a dream team, couple goals and won鈥檛 disappoint

The BEST decision you'll make...

Oh boy, where do I even begin...
Having a 2020 wedding date proved to be an additional curveball in the already stressful and grueling process that is wedding planning. As we had to strip down and reconfigure our plans (several times) Ellie and Will remained one of the only constants in the storm. They are so responsive, caring, genuine and flexible; they truly want the best outcome for you and are willing to put in unbelievable amounts of work to fully achieve the shared vision for your wedding photos. Our engagement session with them was so unique, intimate and special; Will made my husband, a person who generally hates being in front of the camera, feel so confident and at ease in our first session. We had so much fun; it was truly one of the most memorable days of our lives. Moving forward to wedding day, they were there to capture every moment, most of the time so camouflaged with the backdrop that you almost forgot they were even there. I only remembered that there was someone there taking my pictures when Ellie would step out of the background to fix my hair or gently adjust my stance. They kept us grounded and made sure that we had intimate moments, just my husband and I, amongst the frenzy of our wedding day. I will truly never get over how wonderful our experience was with them, start to finish. They are worth every penny (PLUS more, in my opinion)!

Ellie is one of the sweetest, most genuine people I know. I've so enjoyed watching her growth in the industry, and seeing her business develop into what it is today. She's always so good to have a chat with, and we have helped each other so much to grow our photography over the years. Ellie and Will are so talented and they put so much of their hearts into their work, and it's incredibly obvious how much they care about their clients. They will go above and beyond to make your wedding day as wonderful as it can be. Their work is cinematic, emotive, and focuses on the quiet, intimate moments of a wedding day, and truly capture the feeling of a couple joining their lives together. I would recommend Ellie Asher Photographer over and over again.

Ellie Asher is one of those rare photographers who completely gets out of the way of her own ideas or intentions and totally melts into the love and moment of each couple. I have NEVER seen such introspective, reflective, intimate, beautiful, knowledgeable moments reflecting the myriad depths of each couple's relationship like the photographs Ellie magically produces. She is professional, amazing, charismatic, delightful, warm, unobtrusive, magical. There are many photographers in the Portland market yet Ellie can be defined the way I try to be with my ceremonies: unique. personal. one-of-a kind. definitely not cookie-cutter and always memorable. She is one of a kind in every way and I guarantee that you will love her as much as I do!
