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

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Connecticut 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 Connecticut wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: Who are the best Connecticut wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Connecticut 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.
Q: How can couples find reviews of Connecticut 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 Connecticut wedding photographers for their own wedding.

Getting Married in Connecticut - Planning for the Best Wedding Photography

Connecticut, along the Long Island Sound, offers many scenic locations for the Connecticut bride and groom to choose from for their ceremony and reception photography needs. The restored whaling village and living museum in Mystic Seaport provide quaint New England style backdrops for your Connecticut photos. Your photographer will have opportunities to capture images in New England historic villages surrounded by beautiful buildings. If your Connecticut nuptials fall during the months of September and October, foliage season aids in creating colorful picture backdrops. Your special day can only be complemented by Connecticut's parks and forests which offer something for everyone...wedding guests or members of your party may enjoy a walk on one of the many CT hiking trails or they may enjoy a day at the beach. Whether you choose a Connecticut beach ceremony, New England style, or a fall foliage wedding, your CT wedding photojournalist is sure to enjoy shooting photos amidst the beautiful backdrop of your Connecticut event location.

Hi Edward, Having you as our wedding photographer was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day! You are not only professional, reliable, and prompt in your correspondence, you creates absolutely stunning photographic compositions. You captured the natural beauty of the moments on our special day. You artistically crafted the lighting and contrast to make each photo exude magic, in your unique style. You captured each shot that we desired. You will get the right angle AT ALL COSTS! And this means that he will jump, step, climb- even dash into the street… whatever you needs to do to get the right shot! All my wedding guests were captured in the shots, and this was quite a feat, considering how many people attended! Also, trust in your artistic vision, as you can make the most cluttered of backgrounds into something absolutely spectacular! You are so talented with your craft, and knowledgeable about your equipment and matches the photographic environment with the required lens and lighting. We were given quite a few preview photos a day or two after the wedding, and the rest of the shots came in a few weeks later. Overall, we were beyond satisfied to have you to photograph our wedding!

Hi Edward, You are great to work with. You captured really amazing moments throughout the wedding, and one of the best qualities of your work was your ability to use natural light to make everything look romantic and outstandingly beautiful. You always responded promptly to all emails and arrived early to the wedding; overall, very reliable, reasonable, and extremely talented!
