Elopement Photographers for Small Bordeaux Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Bordeaux 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.

Gironde WPJA members are ready to document any town hall, small, mini, 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 religious, non-traditional, modern, 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.

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. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

Chrystel you're perfect. Living abroad, you immediately put us in confidence with a skype call where we talked about our wishes and your way of working. You was very professional from start to finish. We talked about the timing and the agenda together to be sure to anticipate every key moment to capture. During the day you were very discreet and always smiling. I really trusted you and didn't need to worry about you at all, I knew you would take whatever it took. The photos we received were all very beautiful and we are delighted ! You knew how to capture a mix of details, overview and intimate moments. I would highly recommend your services ! Thank you again!
