Europe Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Europe 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 Europe, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. These intimate events allow brides and grooms to be fully present, as they are less worried and intimidated about the sheer size and scope of the day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple Europe elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented. It's important to work with a WPJA Europe photographer who specializes in elopements and who understands the unique dynamic of this type of event. The right photographer will capture the events of the day, the atmosphere of the event and the most important details.

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

Elopement Photographers for Small Europe Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Europe 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.

WPJA members are ready to document any DIY - do it yourself, city hall, secret, 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 modern, romantic, outdoor, 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: Who are the best Europe wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Europe 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 Europe 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 Europe wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: How can couples find top-ranked Europe wedding photographers?
A: The WPJA created the original wedding photographer ranking systems. Our innovative system is based on contest winning points, meaning that the Europe photographers you see at the top of your search results page have recently won the most — and the most recent — contest awards. Our contests judge photographers based on their creativity, style, composure, and ability to capture the heart of any couple's story on their wedding day.

Hi Fabrizio, we had participated in your photography course and when we decided to get married we had no doubts about the choice of the photographer! We were sure that the passion you transmitted to us during the course would be the same that you would have used to capture our day. With these few lines we just wanted to say: THANK YOU! Thank you because you immediately got in tune with us. You proved very helpful, giving us valuable advice to make everything go for the best. Thank you because you started your work long before the day of the ceremony. Your inspections at the church, at the villa and where we would have prepared ourselves, were fundamental for not having surprises or unexpected events on the wedding day ... you had calculated everything! Thanks for your "stolen" shots: during the whole wedding you have been discreet, managing to “blend in” perfectly among our guests but at the same time always present to capture unforgettable moments. Thank you because you stayed until the end, not missing a moment of the whole day, indeed, by looking at your photos you made us relive moments that we didn't even remember. Thank you for your professionalism which has been truly priceless. Thanks because the result left us speechless, your shots captured the spirit of marriage. Your photos will always remind us of how fantastic our day was! Thank you! Maria Letizia and Fabio by looking at your photos you made us relive moments that we didn't even remember. Thank you for your professionalism which has been truly priceless. Thanks because the result left us speechless, your shots captured the spirit of marriage. Your photos will always remind us of how fantastic our day was! Thank you! Maria Letizia and Fabio by looking at your photos you made us relive moments that we didn't even remember.

Hello Fabrizio, These few lines only partially express our satisfaction, happiness and honor in having you present on the most important day of our lives. When we met and met you, we both immediately understood that you were the right photographer for us: your spontaneity and your contagious smile won us over! We had the confirmation of our choice on April 25th 2015: with your fantastic shots, you have perfectly grasped our strong emotions, the happiness and the joy of the relatives, the celebrations of the friends, making them so alive forever. Covering the photographs, we realize your great professionalism and preparation, and your ability to capture precious moments without ever being intrusive. We thank you once again for making everything more special, unique, timeless. A big hug! Patrizio and Gloria
