Elopement Photographers for Small Massachusetts Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Massachusetts 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 justice of the peace, themed, mini, 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, symbolic, outdoor, 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.

Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Massachusetts wedding?

We can ensure that you can get married as quickly as possible — and have incredible photographs to remember your Massachusetts wedding day by.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: How can couples find reviews of Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts wedding photographers for their own wedding.

Katie, We want to thank you for everything you did for us this past summer. Canceling our original wedding plans because of covid was difficult but we felt so lucky to get the chance to replan with you! Our photos were more than we could have dreamed of and they have brought us so much joy over the last several months. Thank you for the prints too! It's so nice enjoying them framed! Love, Heather, Mitch, and Kira

Katie, First card for you! Many thanks for your professionalism. The formals are perfect...grasses made a great backdrop. Everyone loves the photo of Ry and Ro in the Madaket grasses and the release of the petals...even more special are the candids, me with my precious Chris and Nolan. "Scotty the body" dancing with everyone and the tender moments...the hugs, kisses and love. Thank you for memorializing these. Love, Carol Mother of the Groom
