By planning a simple Schenectady elopement, couples are able to stay present in the moment and fully absorb the impact of their wedding day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Schenectady 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 Schenectady wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Schenectady 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 Schenectady wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: How can couples find Schenectady photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Schenectady wedding photographers to showcase their best engagement photography work. These awards are given to photographers who prove that they have an ability to be creative, artistic, and intuitive while working on-location with couples who are newly engaged.
