Baja California Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Baja California wedding photographer vendors have expressed their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are rushing the ceremony.

Many couples have recently discovered that less is more when it comes to wedding planning in Baja California, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. These intimate events allow brides and grooms to be fully present, as they are less worried and intimidated about the sheer size and scope of the day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple Baja California elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented. It's important to work with a WPJA Baja California photographer who specializes in elopements and who understands the unique dynamic of this type of event. The right photographer will capture the events of the day, the atmosphere of the event and the most important details.

The WPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, Baja California documentary wedding photographers available right now who understand that some weddings and elopements can’t wait. Find yours today!

Xiaoqi: We wanted to thank you for your exceptional service especially how challenging 2020 turned out to be. Your small trinkets (the unexpected cookies!) made getting married a delightful process. We were on the fence about having a wedding and now that we have done it, we are so glad we made the choice to proceed. You were an enormous part of our pleasant, beautiful, amazing experience. Thank you. Love, Anna & Justin

From the first conversation we had with you, we could tell that you were friendly, easygoing people who just like to take great pictures and make your clients happy. You are all about getting to know us and our relationship so that you could give us exactly what we wanted. On our wedding day you were flexible, fun and extremely easy to work with. Not that we ever had any doubts, but the pictures came out ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. I have seen many people unhappy with their wedding photos--thanks to you guys, we were thrilled with the pictures...and happy to have two new friends. We love you both and recommend you wholeheartedly!!!
