Elopement Photographers for Small Cape Cod Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Cape Cod 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.

Massachusetts WPJA members are ready to document any city hall, quick, DIY - do it yourself, 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, romantic, 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: How can couples find reviews of Cape Cod 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 Cape Cod wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: How can couples find Cape Cod photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Cape Cod 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: Who are the best Cape Cod wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Cape Cod documentary wedding photographers for elopements. Our members are able to submit WedElope Stories that take you step-by-step, via a 9 image picture story, through the unique and moving elopements that take place around the world.

For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

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
