Elopement Photographers for Small PACA Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small PACA 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.

France WPJA members are ready to document any small, fast, secret, 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, symbolic, non-traditional, 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.

Marine et Clément

Photo by Karol Robache

Hi Karol, I did not want to thank you again for the service performed at our wedding on June 25 in Cassis. You have fully responded to our needs, and the pictures speak for themselves ... They are simply the image of what we wanted, beautiful! We were not worried about the quality of the work done, but we know that this art is subjective, and that belongs to everyone to have his own judgment. You have completely met our expectations and our "Brief" departure. We appreciate the style of your photos, and the discretion that you could have throughout the preparations, the ceremony and the evening. I hope you have also enjoyed all day long Thank you for the little gift box! See you soon I hope Marine and Clement
