Kenya Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Kenya 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 Kenya, 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 Kenya elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented. It's important to work with a WPJA Kenya 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, Kenya documentary wedding photographers available right now who understand that some weddings and elopements can’t wait. Find yours today!

Elopement Photographers for Small Kenya Weddings

Bonnie & Mike, We can't thank you enough for making our wedding weekend so incredibly special. Besides being kick-ass photographers :), you both are the most fun, thoughtful, and generally awesome people, and we've had such a great time getting to know you. Thank you for our amazing pre-wedding surprise box... that was such a perfect way to spend our evening, and we really appreciate you sneaking that over to us :) And thank you for all the million little ways you helped our day go smoothly, and of course, for capturing it all for us. I hope we can stay in touch moving forward! :)
