New York - Upstate 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 New York - Upstate 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, New York - Upstate documentary wedding photographers available right now who understand that some weddings and elopements can’t wait. Find yours today!

Veronica, Your unmatched talent for photography is surpassed only by your genuinely kind soul. My gratitude goes way beyond just your work but also your genuine care and dedication. Thank you so much for your incredible attention to detail, each validating response, every kind word, and your effortless coordination and execution on our wedding day. In the stress and chaos of wedding planning, you were a constant support. I often found myself looking forward to hearing from you. It was always a breath of fresh air. Thank you for always maintaining focus on what mattered most. We will forever treasure our portrait session on our wedding day. It was during that time that the blur of the day stopped and we were able to experience the most special moments of just being together. Thank you for giving that to us. I feel so incredible blessed to have found you and to have formed such a special connection. You will always be held so closely in our hearts and we are forever grateful. My praise is endless, but for now, thank you, Veronica, for sharing your gift with us! With Love, Mary and Mike

Mike and I finally got through all the pictures last night, and I can tell you that we had such a good time going over all of the happy moments (we had quite a few big laughs as well!). You did a fantastic job and we really cannot thank you enough. We were truly thrilled with the results and couldn't have asked for better people with whom to share our day.
