Baltimore Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Baltimore wedding photographer vendors have expressed their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are rushing the ceremony.

Many couples have recently discovered that less is more when it comes to wedding planning in Baltimore, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. These intimate events allow brides and grooms to be fully present, as they are less worried and intimidated about the sheer size and scope of the day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple Baltimore elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented. It's important to work with a WPJA Baltimore photographer who specializes in elopements and who understands the unique dynamic of this type of event. The right photographer will capture the events of the day, the atmosphere of the event and the most important details.

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

Elopement Photographers for Small Baltimore Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Baltimore 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.

Maryland WPJA members are ready to document any quick, civil ceremony, small, 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 unique, religious, 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.
