Connecticut Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Connecticut 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 Connecticut, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. These intimate events allow brides and grooms to be fully present, as they are less worried and intimidated about the sheer size and scope of the day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple Connecticut elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented. It's important to work with a WPJA Connecticut photographer who specializes in elopements and who understands the unique dynamic of this type of event. The right photographer will capture the events of the day, the atmosphere of the event and the most important details.

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

Elopement Photographers for Small Connecticut Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Connecticut 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.

United States WPJA members are ready to document any DIY - do it yourself, themed, 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 modern, non-traditional, romantic, 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.

Hi Edward, Having you as our wedding photographer was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day! You are not only professional, reliable, and prompt in your correspondence, you creates absolutely stunning photographic compositions. You captured the natural beauty of the moments on our special day. You artistically crafted the lighting and contrast to make each photo exude magic, in your unique style. You captured each shot that we desired. You will get the right angle AT ALL COSTS! And this means that he will jump, step, climb- even dash into the street… whatever you needs to do to get the right shot! All my wedding guests were captured in the shots, and this was quite a feat, considering how many people attended! Also, trust in your artistic vision, as you can make the most cluttered of backgrounds into something absolutely spectacular! You are so talented with your craft, and knowledgeable about your equipment and matches the photographic environment with the required lens and lighting. We were given quite a few preview photos a day or two after the wedding, and the rest of the shots came in a few weeks later. Overall, we were beyond satisfied to have you to photograph our wedding!
