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 themed, pop-up, fast, 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 outdoor, modern, intimate, 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.

WPJA Communiqué: Featured Wedding Photography Articles
While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day. So how do you infuse your wedding with all the romance but none of the fuss? ALONE AT LAST Many couples these days are opting to elope rather than planning a large wedding. For the no-...Read more

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Europe WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Attilio e Chiara

Photo by Fabrizio Demasi

Hello Fabrizio, I've known you for several years because you've always done the photo shoot for the family company catalog, in a sense you can say that you helped to create what is now an annual "tradition"! When I decided to get married, in a hurry for another, I had no doubt about who to choose as a photographer of the event. When Attilio and I came to define the details of the day in your studio you told us not to worry, that you would follow us and that we would not even notice you. And so it was. You chased us all over Verona in the pouring rain of January, being always present in the most important moments and also in those apparently more insignificant but, with the intervention of time have become precious to reconstruct that important day, like a puzzle. The amazement of my friend Giovanni when he saw me in a wedding dress, the shoe that slips off just as I descend the stairs, caress the dog of our friend Dolores, when I look at those shots come back to mind together with visual memories also moods and sensations. As bride and groom we have not been very good organization but you have also been able to call us to order at the right time to make wonderful portraits of the two of us with natural light and I thank you again because now, one of those photos, stands on the My bedside table and follows me on every journey. Since the wedding is celebrated only once in life and you can not say "I would choose you as a photographer next time", we confirm you now for the fiftieth anniversary! Thanks to your professionalism and above all to your artistic sensibility, today we can relive the 4th of January 2014 every time we browse the album. Chiara

"Dear Hrisi, We would like to express our deepest gratitude towards you as our wedding photographer. When we began to plan our wedding, we had to decide about a lot of things, but one thing that we knew for sure was that we wanted to have you as the photographer on our special day. The photos in your portfolio were so amazing that captured our imagination and made us inpatient for the big day. We had really high expectations towards you but you were able not only to meet them but also to exceed them through your talent and professionalism. Your friendly attitude, care and attention made us and our guests feel so comfortable and at ease all the time. We can’t forget that you were with us from early in the morning until late in the night, capturing with your magical eye all of our important moments. These photos will always remind us of the amazing wedding day that we had, the wonderful time spent and all the emotions shared with our closest friends and families. We would like to wish you to keep your artistic touch and will be more than happy to share with you the forthcoming special moments of our life as husband and wife!" Iskren and Teodora
