South Carolina Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

NO STOPPING LOVE - In recent months, many of our wedding photographers have communicated their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are quickly moving forward with smaller ceremonies.

By planning a simple South Carolina elopement, couples are able to stay present in the moment and fully absorb the impact of their wedding day. Given the fact that many couples feel more natural and at ease in intimate settings, it's no surprise that some of the most breathtaking wedding images come from elopements.

The WPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, South Carolina documentary wedding photographers available right now who understand that some weddings and elopements can’t wait. Find yours today!

Kendra & Chris

Ben, Chris and I don't even know where to begin. You are truly the best! Not only was your photography the most incredible thing my family has ever seen, your personality and charm won us all over. You were so helpful throughout the day in so many ways. We will never be able to repay you for everything you did for us. You made me feel the most calm I have ever felt my whole life on the most 'stressful' day of my life; for that I thank you with all my heart! Every single picture you took at our wedding is a beautiful piece of art; that is what sets you apart from every other wedding photographer out there. You captured every single perfect moment of our perfect day - the funniest moments, the excitement of the day and most importantly, you perfectly captured our love for each other. So, thank you Ben! We love you and everything you are doing for the couples you photograph! We were so blessed to have you

Dearest Ben, We've run out of superlatives to describe your brilliant work. All we can say now, again and always is thanks for the beautiful pictures. Hiring you was definitely the best decision by far about our wedding. Planning for our big day took a completely different course once we booked you, as if the bar had been "raised" because of the quality and standard your photos would attribute. We were more excited about our photos than anything, the marriage itself being a given. We're so glad your availability opened up for our date because it could've been the biggest regret of our lives had it not. You are an incredible photographer with pure talent, dedication, passion and humility. You've always given us more than what was required of a professional. Thanks for having been such a pleasure to work with, for your tireless spirit, dedication to the art and continuing to inspire us with your work
