Elopement Photographers for Small Netherlands Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Netherlands 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.

Europe WPJA members are ready to document any town hall, justice of the peace, 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 modern, boutique, non-traditional, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered.

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
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Netherlands WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Natalia, You are an open and honest woman who makes beautiful pictures! You see unique opportunities and take them. I really liked that you did not want to put anything in the scene and that we actually did not notice that you were there. But that you have managed to make photos from all angles. At the times when it was necessary, you knew how to make everyone feel comfortable, for example by going crazy. Everyone is very impressed with our wedding album and often ask for your data. Which we naturally like to give.I remember especially for a moment while drawing. I saw your lens slide past when you photographed one of the guests, you made contact and said hi only. I liked it so much and funny. I love it! Thank you for making our photos!

It is quite exciting to have your wedding recorded by someone you do not know. But after a nice and relaxed conversation we knew that we made a good choice to book you. On the wedding day you were full of creative ideas, but we could be ourselves. On the day itself, we hardly noticed you, which is very nice. The photos are really great and the wedding album has become exactly as we wanted thanks to all your tips. You have arranged everything super, our expectations in terms of service and service have been exceeded.

We were so fortunate to have found you, you were absolutely fantastic at documenting our wedding day in exactly the style we were looking for. You were brilliant at making everything look natural, even got me to smile on camera, which is a feat in itself! Looking back at our photos you have captured the buzz and the genuine emotion in everyone, I can't help but smile every time I look at them. My friends and family were thrilled to have you with us on the day, all mentioning how lovely, unobtrusive and polite you were. You couldn't have made a better impression and it was an absolute pleasure to have you document our wedding, we truly can't recommend you highly enough! "
