Elopement Photographers for Small Bulgaria Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Bulgaria 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.

Europe WPJA members are ready to document any city hall, mini, town hall, 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 outdoor, symbolic, boutique, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered. The emphasis is on documenting key moments, capturing spontaneous displays of emotion, telling your real love story, as well as creating artistic portraits and details.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Bulgaria 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 Bulgaria wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: How can couples find Bulgaria photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Bulgaria 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.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Bulgaria 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 Bulgaria wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.

Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...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

"Dear Hrisi, We would like to express our deepest gratitude towards you as our wedding photographer. When we began to plan our wedding, we had to decide about a lot of things, but one thing that we knew for sure was that we wanted to have you as the photographer on our special day. The photos in your portfolio were so amazing that captured our imagination and made us inpatient for the big day. We had really high expectations towards you but you were able not only to meet them but also to exceed them through your talent and professionalism. Your friendly attitude, care and attention made us and our guests feel so comfortable and at ease all the time. We can’t forget that you were with us from early in the morning until late in the night, capturing with your magical eye all of our important moments. These photos will always remind us of the amazing wedding day that we had, the wonderful time spent and all the emotions shared with our closest friends and families. We would like to wish you to keep your artistic touch and will be more than happy to share with you the forthcoming special moments of our life as husband and wife!" Iskren and Teodora
