Elopement Photographers for Small Asia Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Asia wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.

WPJA members are ready to document any pop-up, civil ceremony, fast, or elopement wedding, even if it is a Monday-Thursday ceremony. Search for the “Can Shoot Weddings on Short Notice!” message on the listings below.

We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your unique, religious, boutique, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered. The emphasis is on documenting key moments, capturing spontaneous displays of emotion, telling your real love story, as well as creating artistic portraits and details.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Asia wedding?
A: There are many WPJA photographers who are able to help you out at a moment's notice. We understand that sometimes love happens and there's simply no time to lose. We can ensure that you can get married as quickly as possible — and have incredible photographs to remember your Asia wedding day by.
Q: How can couples find Asia photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Asia wedding photographers to showcase their best engagement photography work. These awards are given to photographers who prove that they have an ability to be creative, artistic, and intuitive while working on-location with couples who are newly engaged.
Q: How can couples find reviews of Asia wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements. Instead, we elevated our listings with the use of Client Letters, which represent the actual words and feelings of the clients who booked those Asia wedding photographers for their own wedding.

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Asia WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Helene & Will

Photo by Charles Sng

Dear Charles, Will and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you dearly for your wonderful job in taking my family and my friends (and myself!) in picture during our wedding. Our wedding was tiny and very unprepared but you showed up full of creativity and making up along the way with the environment. One picture shows us in the reflection of a candy bar machine, the picture is fantastic and it really shows how talented you are and how easy you can improvised. I wish you all the best and advise everyone who wish to ensure that their wedding pictures will be perfect not to think twice in taking you!

We were so fortunate to have found you, you were absolutely fantastic at documenting our wedding day in exactly the style we were looking for. You were brilliant at making everything look natural, even got me to smile on camera, which is a feat in itself! Looking back at our photos you have captured the buzz and the genuine emotion in everyone, I can't help but smile every time I look at them. My friends and family were thrilled to have you with us on the day, all mentioning how lovely, unobtrusive and polite you were. You couldn't have made a better impression and it was an absolute pleasure to have you document our wedding, we truly can't recommend you highly enough! "
