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!

There are truly not enough gold stars in the world that could even begin to explain how absolutely amazing Ellie and Will are. From the very first conversation we had, they went above and beyond for us to make sure our wedding was perfect. Ellie is one of the absolute kindest and most genuine people i've ever had the pleasure of meeting. It is so evident how much she loves what she does, and there is nothing she wouldn't do to make sure your wedding and the photos you receive are everything you could want. The only thing more stellar than her personality is her talent as a photographer. Leading up to my wedding, she answered any question I could possibly think of, and came prepared with her own to make sure everything was beyond ready. The day of was absolutely flawless. She and Will had a plan and they completely nailed every single thing we talked about. They are such a rockstar team together. Having her with me throughout the wedding felt like a friend that was there. I completely trusted every single idea and vision they had and I could not be happier with it. Our photos turned out better than I could have dreamed of. If you want to re-live the best day of your life with every single photo, these are your people. Every moment was truly captured in a way you wouldn't even believe. Ellie and Will's eye for photography and aesthetics will surpass anything you would've come up with yourself. I am so beyond thankful I found Ellie and Will. They kept me completely at ease throughout the entire planning process and the day of. I don't think anyone else could've created such beautiful images and truly captured my wedding like they did. I seriously love them.Sent on 12/06/2016

Stop, look no more. Do you want a wedding photographer that is going to go to extreme measures to get you unique, breathtaking photos all while making you feel like a rockstar? Ellie and Will are not only incredible photographers, they are stand up honorable and truly goodhearted people that will go the extra mile for you. They work seamlessly together and are able to capture the genuine emotion of couples that they photograph (even if you're nervous to have your picture taken, and usually freeze up awkwardly like I do.) During my engagement session with them, they were able to turn a somewhat high-pressure situation into some of my fiance and my favorite memories to date. They were able to give us just enough direction to capture amazing photos but kept us loose and relaxed, happy and laughing the entire time. Not to mention that since we received and shared our photos, countless people have approached us to say that they have never seen engagement photos of the same caliber and quality. Ellie and Will were able to create magazine quality work that we will cherish forever. They literally climbed cliffs on the Oregon Coast in a rainstorm to get shots of us that look like they are out of a fairytale. I'd been following Ellie and Will's work for years so when my fiance and I first got engaged- the one and only decision we made was to book Ellie Asher Photography. We knew that our photography package was going to be an essential investment in commemorating our most important day to date. We wouldn't trust anyone but Ellie and Will to be such an intimate and important part of our wedding, and we wouldn't want to share the day with anyone else. As much as I try not to be, I am a Type A, nervous bride and I have felt nothing but confidence in their abilities through this entire process.They researched a stunning location for our engagement shoot and have been available at all times to plan, discuss, and even just to chat and provide support.I cannot recommend them more!!Sent on 05/08/2017

I could not say enough great things about Ellie and Will that would fully capture how amazing they are!! We did our engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner, and entire wedding day with them and each experience was incredible. I feel as though their photos speak for themselves, but what I am most impressed by is their ability to capture more than just an image; I can feel the emotions and the mood in each of their photos and that is such an incredible thing to have. Aside from their beautiful photography, both Ellie and Will are just downright amazing people. They are so fun to be around, they make you feel like a model and that you are really great at taking photos (when let's be honestly, most of us feel incredibly awkward), they have an uncanny way of getting you into "posed" positions that don't actually feel posed and look extremely natural in the finished product. These two are people, that if they weren't photographing your wedding, you would want them as guests because they are just that awesome. Highly, highly recommend them!!Sent on 10/23/2017
This husband and wife team are a pleasure to work with and their finished photos are amazing!
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!
