Elopement Photographers for Small Europe Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Russia 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.

Members are ready to document any themed, quick, justice of the peace, 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 religious, non-traditional, casual, 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.

Moscow wedding and elopement photography by Sasha Dzyubchuk of Russia

My name is Sasha and when I am not busy traveling the world and capturing the most precious moments in people’s lives, I am a full-time parent to Gosha (the pup on my back). My sole goal is to translate the precious moments my clients invite me to witness: naturally, effortlessly and full of love. When working, I try to be everywhere and nowhere all at once, so I can capture the tiniest details. I am continuously uplifted by the beauty of the world and draw my inspiration from magazines and films. [Moscow Wedding Photographer]

I'm a photographer, a daddy, and a husband... I used to shoot since I was a child with any kind of camera, analogic machines, compact, 35mm, digital SLR cameras, etc... What interests me is to capture and create. Thanks to my grandfather who gave me the first film camera and given me the opportunity to develop hundreds of photos ... I prefer portraits and storytelling by reportage. My love is "catch the moment" to make beautiful images. I love Photography in all, it is my passion, like for pizza. I love to be a friend during the wedding day, not a "director". A friend that will shoot about your day just with emotions and real moments that will become...memories. No constructions, no fake, just a lovely couple with a beautiful story on a special day. [Syracuse Wedding Photographer]

120/hour (EUR)

As a fashion photographer living in Paris and wedding photojournalist working in France and abroad, I approach photography as a versatile artist.

Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding.

Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
