Elopement Photographers for Small Italy Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Italy 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 fast, themed, DIY - do it yourself, 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 non-traditional, casual, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Italy wedding?
A: There are many WPJA photographers who are able to help you out at a moment's notice. We understand that sometimes love happens and there's simply no time to lose. We can ensure that you can get married as quickly as possible — and have incredible photographs to remember your Italy wedding day by.
Q: How can couples find reviews of Italy 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 Italy wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: How can couples find top-ranked Italy wedding photographers?
A: The WPJA created the original wedding photographer ranking systems. Our innovative system is based on contest winning points, meaning that the Italy 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.
WPJA Communiqué: Featured Wedding Photography Articles
So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible . They say 'all you need is love', but where exactly can you afford to trim the fat, so to speak? You want simplicity, but you also want to be properly married and, surely, to remember this occasion.

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

Breeze & Kartik

WOW Marco!!!  We LOVE it!  It's magical.   Thank you for your creativity and kindness, we are so glad we have this to remember the best day by.  Thanks for the two cameras- fantastic editing and story (beginning is great!).  You're right, Kartik was very sweet :) It's SO good.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  I will let all my San Francisco and California friends know that you are the only logical choice when they need a photographer. I hope all is well in Puglia.  We intend to visit again in September :)   xo, breeze

Fabio e Milena

Photo by Fabrizio Demasi

Hi Fabrizio! We are writing to the man and friend in the first place, not only to the photographer. Your photos have a communicative force that often transcends the moment of the shoot, but above all they convey what you are - they are kind, attentive and caring, strong and incisive, sweet. And exactly because of your unique way of perceiving the world we shared and have chosen, other than offering our compliments for your professionalism and technique, we want to talk about the journey you led us through. Sitting in your studio, imagining how it would be, you made us emotional, you literally conjured the scenes before our very eyes. You took us by the hand, you led us in the most beautiful day of our lives well before you we reached the established date. You gave us peace, you managed our embarrassment about being at the centre of the attention, you guided us, you allowed us to feel at ease and, as a result, to be spontaneous and serene. It was only then that you took your camera and you got down to work. You were an important point of reference throughout our day, for us and for our loved ones, a discreet presence, but also an attentive and helpful one. We fully enjoyed the day, energized and happy for what we were experiencing and we had a great time as I am sure you had too. The final outcome turned to be wonderful photos, where we recognize ourselves in and through them relive the emotions of that moment - with such an impact that we continue to remain breathless. Every shot has its own history, its own emotion and its very own beauty. 'Thank you' is what we are writing, but words are not enough to express everything. Fabio e Milena

Rae and Francesco

Photo by Francesca Vitulano

Dear Francesca, I asked Simona to thank you from both Francesco and I...but I really want to say it myself too. From my heart, thank you so very much! You are so talented and we absolutely LOVE our wedding photos. You captured our happy day so perfectly. Francesco thinks I am silly because I have been looking at the photographs for hours every day :) During our wedding, several people also commented on your lovely personality and gentle manner too. This made me very proud. Thank you for being professional, for being lovely and for taking incredible photographs. Sei meraviglioso!
