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

Shooting an elopement or small Maryland 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.

United States WPJA members are ready to document any small, quick, civil ceremony, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Maryland 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 Maryland wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Maryland 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 Maryland wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: How can couples find top-ranked Maryland wedding photographers?
A: The WPJA created the original wedding photographer ranking systems. Our innovative system is based on contest winning points, meaning that the Maryland 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.

Veronica, Your unmatched talent for photography is surpassed only by your genuinely kind soul. My gratitude goes way beyond just your work but also your genuine care and dedication. Thank you so much for your incredible attention to detail, each validating response, every kind word, and your effortless coordination and execution on our wedding day. In the stress and chaos of wedding planning, you were a constant support. I often found myself looking forward to hearing from you. It was always a breath of fresh air. Thank you for always maintaining focus on what mattered most. We will forever treasure our portrait session on our wedding day. It was during that time that the blur of the day stopped and we were able to experience the most special moments of just being together. Thank you for giving that to us. I feel so incredible blessed to have found you and to have formed such a special connection. You will always be held so closely in our hearts and we are forever grateful. My praise is endless, but for now, thank you, Veronica, for sharing your gift with us! With Love, Mary and Mike
