New Zealand Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

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

Many couples have recently discovered that less is more when it comes to wedding planning in New Zealand, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple New Zealand elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented.

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

New Zealand Photographers for Large or Small Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small New Zealand 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.

Oceania WPJA members are ready to document any civil ceremony, justice of the peace, secret, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who are the best New Zealand wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top New Zealand 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 New Zealand photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for New Zealand 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: How can couples find reviews of New Zealand 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 New Zealand wedding photographers for their own wedding.
