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

You and your entire crew were so phenomenal yesterday. Thank you so much for all your help and being so dedicated and helpful and cheerful and energetic. When the weather opened up out of nowhere, it was a shock and I didn't see how the day was going to turn around. But you guys made it so nice and put so much effort into getting us the shots we were hoping for despite the curveball. I just wanted to extend a big thank you and let you know how much we appreciated it.

Yuliya you are not only a visionary but one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Out of all the vendors we worked with you were the most reliable and responsive. I completely trusted your work as soon as I saw your portfolio, and you didn't disappoint. We still have people complimenting us on our engagement and wedding photos and I always tell them it was thanks to Yuliya. You are daring and have a great eye for color, beauty and amazing action shots. You have a great photojournalist style, but you are also able to take more traditional photos if the wedding party asks for them. You and your partner Michelle were great to work with during our special day. Marina & Senya
