Elopement Photographers for Small Netherlands Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Netherlands 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, quick, 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, intimate, casual, 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.

WPJA Communiqué: Featured Wedding Photography Articles

Some couples, as they begin planning for their weddings, might think that they are limited to the classic locations: churches, gardens, beaches, or even Las Vegas. But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space.

Natalia, You are an open and honest woman who makes beautiful pictures! You see unique opportunities and take them. I really liked that you did not want to put anything in the scene and that we actually did not notice that you were there. But that you have managed to make photos from all angles. At the times when it was necessary, you knew how to make everyone feel comfortable, for example by going crazy. Everyone is very impressed with our wedding album and often ask for your data. Which we naturally like to give.I remember especially for a moment while drawing. I saw your lens slide past when you photographed one of the guests, you made contact and said hi only. I liked it so much and funny. I love it! Thank you for making our photos!
