Portland Oregon Wedding Photographer | Elle M Photography

Sawyer & Elise were married on a beautiful, sunny day in July! Two days before their wedding, they had a First Glance session at the Payson Utah Temple and then near Saltair at sunset! On the day of their lovely wedding, they had a luncheon and reception at the beautiful Clarion Gardens Reception Center! Everything was absolutely beautiful! It was so fun to see my photography decorating the beautiful tables, rooms and hallways of the reception center. The DJ was amazing and kept the party going into the evening, and then Elise and Sawyer had a beautiful sparkler sendoff with love from their family and friends!!

We had so much fun creating photos that not only showed their love and passion, but their fun, playful sides as well… a few of my favorites are the one when I asked Sawyer to stand with the umbrella while I set up lighting and got my settings, Elise was in the car staying warm, and he decided to pose as well! I love that he took a romantic shot and made it funny! Another fun shot was captured when Sawyer wanted Elise to propose to him in the wheat field; pretty cute! And, since Sawyer plays safety for BYU, we decided to have Elise play center and hike her bouquet to him! I absolutely love photographing weddings, and I’m so grateful Elise and Sawyer made time to capture such special memories that will be treasured forever!
