Cologne Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Cologne wedding photographer vendors have expressed their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are rushing the ceremony.

Many couples have recently discovered that less is more when it comes to wedding planning in Cologne, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple Cologne elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented.

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

Dear Martin, Now our wedding and baptism is exactly 3 weeks ago today and we did not want to miss the opportunity to thank you again for everything. It was an unforgettable and unique event for us, captured with many amazing and emotional pictures of you for us forever. We always like to look at the pictures and reminisce. Thank you also for your totally relaxed, calming and open nature and of course for your flexibility (with our little daughter Jana). We would love to book you anytime again! Best regards Petra & Markus with Jana

Dear Martin You have enriched our wedding in so many ways. Back then, you introduced yourself to the words that on that day, you will not be "just" our wedding photographer, but also friend and guest at the same time. And you were so much more for us that day. Throughout the day, you helped us with advice, action and camera. Again and again we were asked by our guests how long we have known each other, and again and again we earned incredulous looks when we said we see each other the second time today. And so not only we, but also all our guests, both of you as a human being, as well as of your photographic skills were completely thrilled. You've captured this unforgettable day forever from start to finish in so many beautiful moments, and that's priceless. Christina and Thomas
