Elopement Photographers for Small Spain Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Biscay 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.

Members are ready to document any fast, quick, courthouse, 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 boutique, symbolic, unique, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered.

Landes wedding photography by Chrystel Echavidre of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France

Chrystel is based in the South Western France. She is working mostly in this region, but there are no boundaries, so feel free to contact her. As a professional photographer, being subtle, natural and spontaneous are the key elements in order to capture all emotions such as laughs, tears, and other strong and memorable moments on your wedding day. As soon as the day starts, your photographer will be next to the bride and the groom from beginning to end. If it tickles your fancy, we will also organise family and friends portraits until the reception. Your couple pictures can be either taking on the day and/or another scheduled date.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE?

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more
It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures.

REMEMBER WHAT'S IMPORTANT You’re in this position now, about to get married, for...Read more

But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

Chrystel you're perfect. Living abroad, you immediately put us in confidence with a skype call where we talked about our wishes and your way of working. You was very professional from start to finish. We talked about the timing and the agenda together to be sure to anticipate every key moment to capture. During the day you were very discreet and always smiling. I really trusted you and didn't need to worry about you at all, I knew you would take whatever it took. The photos we received were all very beautiful and we are delighted ! You knew how to capture a mix of details, overview and intimate moments. I would highly recommend your services ! Thank you again!
