Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Aspen 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 Aspen wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Aspen 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 Aspen wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: Who are the best Aspen wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Aspen documentary wedding photographers for elopements. Our members are able to submit WedElope Stories that take you step-by-step, via a 9 image picture story, through the unique and moving elopements that take place around the world.
