Stevi Sayler Photography » Eugene, Oregon Wedding and Portrait Photographer

I remember, years ago, hearing all about my cousin’s boyfriend who she first met when she was in kindergarten, his name was Brandon and he was sweet as can be! This was years ago, I mean so many years ago! They met as kids, dated as teens and he gave her a promise ring in 10th grade and followed through with a proposal just last year. So naturally when I heard they were engaged I was so excited and hopeful that they would ask me to photograph their wedding! Of course I dropped everything to be able to fly to Wyoming for their big day!

Chelsey and Brandon (mostly Chelsey) put in an incredible amount of work creating a unique and completely gorgeous wedding! Just about every detail was carefully thought over and perfectly designed! Chelsey being a skilled artist created just about every thing you see in these photos, including folding 1,000 paper cranes!! Can you even imagine?! Beyond the amazing decor and wonderfully decorated venue, I loved seeing the time and effort that was put into the day coming together perfectly. By far my favorite part of the day was the touching moments between the two of them before and after the ceremony. Seeing the two of them be so sweet and so genuine with each other was such a delight. I know these two will create a loving home and have a lasting and strong relationship!

And just like that, the wedding season is upon us with gorgeous weather, beautiful flowers and brides so beautiful it will take your breath away! I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing wedding to officially kick off the season than Hannah and Todd’s wedding out at Deepwoods. Every time I photograph a wedding out there, the weddings get better and better! Or maybe I am just in love with all of them!

Hannah and Todd had really thought of everything, the day was perfectly planned and went off without a hitch! A relaxed and excited couple, gorgeous decor and amazing flowers, there’s nothing better!

The special touches I loved were the beautiful flowers that seemed to open up and change right in front of your eyes, the amazing dance floor outside on the patio (hello epic dance lighting) and how amazingly happy Hannah and Todd looked throughout the day.

Special thanks to everyone who worked on this gorgeous wedding:

Getting to work with family and friends has been one of my favorite parts of owning my business! While those at times can be murky waters, I’ve had nothing but wonderful luck! I was honored to help my mom get her new website looking fantastic for her quilting company, Pacific Rim Quilt Company! I spent two days helping her drag these gorgeous quilts all over creation and taking pictures of them in all sorts of environments! I think all the hard work and variation paid of when you see how wonderful the photos look on her new site:

From the moment Katy contacted me, I knew this was going to be an epic, super fun and totally unreal shoot! Katy and Trevor were traveling from California, through Oregon and up into Washington for a fun vacation and a way to celebrate their second wedding anniversary! They knew they wanted to do photos on the Oregon Coast they began searching out Oregon photographers and somehow, thankfully, they found me! Every email with Katy got me more and more excited about the shoot, we were totally on the same page with ideas, locations, outfits, EVERYTHING! They even put up with my goofy stories about my dog and let him tag along, at a distance!  Can you say perfect shoot?!

We met up at Cannon Beach, walked along the beach to Haystack rock and then headed down the coast to Hug Point Beach for the more dramatic part of the shoot! Doing two different outfits and matching them to the surroundings not only gives a ton of variety in photos but it really helps to amp up the drama in the photo!

These two didn’t shy away at any suggestion, not when I asked if they would climb up a giant rock, and not even when I asked if they would wade in the FREEEEEEZZZZINNNGGG cold ocean water! Talk about troopers and the photos turned out even better because of it!

From this point on I will be showing this shoot to future couples as an example of everything perfect. The dress, the location, the willingness to try crazy stuff.

ALLL THE THINGS!

Gosh, I could just go on and on, but I won’t.

BUT if you are considering photo locations, OREGON COAST!!!

Of course I have to include some awesome outtakes. The uncontrollable faces you made when the ocean water hits you, and of course my derpy little puppy.
