Boston Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

NO STOPPING LOVE - In recent months, many of our wedding photographers have communicated their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are quickly moving forward with smaller ceremonies.

By planning a simple Boston elopement, couples are able to stay present in the moment and fully absorb the impact of their wedding day. Given the fact that many couples feel more natural and at ease in intimate settings, it's no surprise that some of the most breathtaking wedding images come from elopements.

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

Katie, First card for you! Many thanks for your professionalism. The formals are perfect...grasses made a great backdrop. Everyone loves the photo of Ry and Ro in the Madaket grasses and the release of the petals...even more special are the candids, me with my precious Chris and Nolan. "Scotty the body" dancing with everyone and the tender moments...the hugs, kisses and love. Thank you for memorializing these. Love, Carol Mother of the Groom

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

We have wept joyfully recounting the most magical and important moment of our lives and every time I'm amazed. I will re-live the moments my entire life through your images. They are perfect.
