Cape Town 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 Cape Town 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, Cape Town documentary wedding photographers available right now who understand that some weddings and elopements can’t wait. Find yours today!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find Cape Town photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Cape Town 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: How can couples find reviews of Cape Town 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 Town wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Cape Town wedding?
A: There are many WPJA photographers who are able to help you out at a moment's notice. We understand that sometimes love happens and there's simply no time to lose. We can ensure that you can get married as quickly as possible — and have incredible photographs to remember your Cape Town wedding day by.
