Elopement Photographers for Small Mississippi Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Mississippi 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 fast, civil ceremony, city 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 casual, outdoor, 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 Mississippi 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.

Q: How can couples find Mississippi photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Mississippi 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: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Mississippi 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.

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!
