Louisiana Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Louisiana wedding photographer vendors have expressed their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are rushing the ceremony.

While they may be planning a sweet and simple Louisiana elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who are the best Louisiana wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Louisiana 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.
Q: How can couples find reviews of Louisiana 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 Louisiana wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: How can couples find top-ranked Louisiana wedding photographers?
A: The WPJA created the original wedding photographer ranking systems. Our innovative system is based on contest winning points, meaning that the Louisiana 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.

Cindy: I can’t tell you how much we appreciate all the wonderful photos you took— somehow, they are all both absolutely stunning and truly capture the people, emotions, and experience of our wedding. None of the photos feel forced, and they all make me smile. I can’t tell you how much it means to see myself in these photos— looking natural, beautiful, and, above all, happy!
