Elopement Photographers for Small Europe Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Serbia 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 mini, themed, 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 modern, intimate, boutique, 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.

3 Documentary Wedding Photographers...

When we ask ourselves “What is the most important moment in my life”, the answer of “my wedding day” is generally early in the list. The trust of a couple in me to photo these moments always excites me. You create the images to stay with you for the next 50-100 years and maybe the images that will pass to your grandchildren. This responsibility brings along the obligation to work hard at wedding day and after and provide wonderful photos to couple. We don’t have the luxury to miss even one single moment. Every month of the day is very precious whether it is important or not. Therefore I always try to shoot memorable portraits for you as well as trying to compose the story of the day. Hello! I am a wedding photographer who lives in Istanbul and Izmir but free to go everywhere in the world for photo shooting. This flexibility to travel stems from also being a travel and documentary photographer I think. I have worked in photography committee of travel, geography and culture magazine Atlas which is published in Turkey and Europe for a long time and I have photographed and written my themes. I was also the photography editor of Skylife magazine for a period of time. I have made editorial shootings for numerous magazines and newspapers. I think these fields that I came to grips with in past enabled me to look at wedding photography from different angles. I try to convey the reflex of story-telling and other disciplines to wedding photography. [Istanbul Wedding Photographer]

My name is Boni Bonev, I was born in Svilengrad (Bulgaria) in 1970 and I live in Sofia (Bulgaria) since 1985. I am married and have two children. For the first time I touched the magic of photography when I was 7 years old, watching images appearing on a white sheet of photo paper in the darkroom of my uncle. Since then, photography has become my favorite pastime, and since 1991 with some interruptions also became a source of income. I love to paint with light, no matter if someone will pay me for it or not. Precisely for this reason, I always try to accept orders that will meet my personal preferences and understanding of photography. I like the reportage photography and the way of its making - with many unique moments caught without manipulation. I love working with natural light where possible, although I have a studio downtown in Sofia. As a founding member and administrator of the largest Bulgarian site on photography Photo Forum , I have arranged with my colleagues over 30 photographic competitions and exhibitions. Personally, I participated in many group exhibitions, and I have my own as well. They can be found in my personal site. Since I am master of science in electronics, I've always been interested in photographic equipment. I have written over 200 pages, photographic articles in print media, some of them technical. I am also the author of dozens of online tests in the Photo Forum of photographic cameras and lenses. I am coauthor of the first Bulgarian online photography tutorial "How to make better pictures with a digital camera", and the photographic book " In Focus ". Since 2005 me and my colleagues guided photographic courses in Sofia . With wedding and other commercial photography I work more intensively for several years. As you can see in my portfolio, I like clean, not manipulated photography with captured many moments, portraits and details. I love black and white photography, because it shows better real graphic pattern of light. Freed from unnecessary colors, photography remains just as volume, shape, light and storyline. I love metaphoric stories where one has to think, not just to perceive directly what he saw. I use camera with high resolution 24,5 mp and fast lenses , which re-create in better way the natural ambience of the place and minimize the introduction of artificial light.

It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures.

Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe!

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

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

Hi Ufuk, Evrim and I would like to thank you for being a part of our wedding. What a fantastic day it was! There are so many natural shots. You really captured the magic of the day and night without missing a beat, and without us even knowing it. The photos arrived in USBs which were packaged beautifully. It was so nice to go through all of them. They brought back many emotions. Thanks so much once again. We’ll cherish the photos forever! - Meltem
