Elopement Photographers for Small Somerset Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Somerset 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.

England WPJA members are ready to document any themed, civil ceremony, DIY - do it yourself, 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 symbolic, boutique, modern, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Somerset wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements. Instead, we elevated our listings with the use of Client Letters, which represent the actual words and feelings of the clients who booked those Somerset wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Somerset wedding day?
A: While wedding photojournalists strive to capture candid moments on the wedding day, our photographers also are skilled artists who can compose powerful portraits. If you have a specific vision of what types of images you want from your wedding day, look at the top-ranked Somerset wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: Who are the best Somerset wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Somerset documentary wedding photographers for elopements. Our members are able to submit WedElope Stories that take you step-by-step, via a 9 image picture story, through the unique and moving elopements that take place around the world.

Dear Harry, Thank you for photographing our wedding day! You really captured the atmosphere and we will treasure the photos and memories. It is lovely to have such great images, even more so as you were so adept at being in the right place at the right time, without us even knowing you were there! Many thanks, Sarah & Richie. x
