Oceania Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

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

Elopement Photographers for Small Oceania Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Oceania 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 justice of the peace, city hall, quick, 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 boutique, outdoor, romantic, 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.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Oceania WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Suzanne & Clement

Photo by John Lee

Hello John, Thank you for capturing our special moment in both our banquet in Penang and Hong Kong. You managed to snap all our precious moments and your photos truly touched our hearts. You managed to capture all details and looking at our photos truly brings us back to our wonderful wedding again. Your light heartedness made the wedding fun and enjoyable yet all shots taken were professional and artistic. Even showing our photos to those that did not attend our wedding, they could clearly see the romance, joy and fun. A lot of people in Penang have asked for your contact details But unfortunately you are in Hong Kong! You managed very well as a single photographer in our Penang wedding, not easy for a big banquet.

We are so thankful that we have found you and guess what, it's only the beginning. Many more events we love to have your help in documenting!! Through your lens, we were able to see what we didn't on those days and get to relive in those moments again.
