YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Alberta 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 Alberta, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple Alberta elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented.

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

Alberta Photographers for Large or Small Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Alberta 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.

Canada WPJA members are ready to document any fast, small, pop-up, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Alberta 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 Alberta wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Alberta 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 Alberta wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: How can couples find top-ranked Alberta wedding photographers?
A: The WPJA created the original wedding photographer ranking systems. Our innovative system is based on contest winning points, meaning that the Alberta photographers you see at the top of your search results page have recently won the most — and the most recent — contest awards. Our contests judge photographers based on their creativity, style, composure, and ability to capture the heart of any couple's story on their wedding day.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Alberta WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Melissa and Dick

Rick you are unbelievably great. Your images are stunning, and you caught them all without interrupting the wedding at all. All of our images are beautifully composed. These are all artbook shots, without a hint of cheese anywhere! I have many loves about the entire experience with you. Here are but a few: I love how you are a true photojournalist, not interrupting anything, ever! Many photogs claim to be photojournalists but then make you re-do the ring exchange after the ceremony. Our shots are all true and very special moments captured as they actually happened. And I love how flexible you are in working out options for us that we could afford. Thank you for that! And finally, I love the fact that you love shooting. You stayed through the whole party and dare I say looked like you were having fun. Please let me know if you need a reference as I would highly recommend you to anyone.

Dear Rick, I have one word to describe you and Cheryl: amazing! Photography was by far the most important aspect of our wedding and I spent months researching photographers for our destination wedding in Mexico. We wanted to capture the true essence of our day in a photojournalistic and modern style. You guys were absolutely the perfect fit! Not only are you an extraordinarily talented artist, but you and Cheryl have such amazing energy! I had no idea how important it really was to have someone there to not only take beautiful pictures, but to really help put you at ease. And you did all of that and more. We are so thankful for the way everything turned out and I am in love with my wedding pictures!
