While they may be planning a sweet and simple Boston elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented.

Shooting an elopement or small Boston 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find Boston photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Boston 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: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Boston wedding day?
A: While wedding photojournalists strive to capture candid moments on the wedding day, our photographers also are skilled artists who can compose powerful portraits. If you have a specific vision of what types of images you want from your wedding day, look at the top-ranked Boston wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: How can couples find reviews of Boston 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 Boston wedding photographers for their own wedding.

Katie, We want to thank you for everything you did for us this past summer. Canceling our original wedding plans because of covid was difficult but we felt so lucky to get the chance to replan with you! Our photos were more than we could have dreamed of and they have brought us so much joy over the last several months. Thank you for the prints too! It's so nice enjoying them framed! Love, Heather, Mitch, and Kira
