Elopement Photographers for Small Switzerland Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Switzerland 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 themed, city hall, justice of the peace, 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 symbolic, modern, intimate, 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 Switzerland 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 Switzerland wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Switzerland 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 Switzerland wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: Who are the best Switzerland wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Switzerland 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.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE? If you look up the definition of “elope” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary , you’ll find a plethora of meanings making it quite clear how polarizing the word has become, and how it has transformed and evolved with the passage of time and even personal preference.Read more
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable.

I never realized how emotionally intense a wedding photo shoot can not to mention the busy schedule of the day. Every time I look at the photos I relive those moments and there is always a tear of happiness in my eye. Thank you Serenay for making our day eternal.

„Wow...... you are exceptional; I cannot find words to describe how much we love the photos; I am eager to have a look at all of them. Since the moment I received the photos, I have been reviewing them every day again and again simply because I find something new which I skipped and …. they are telling a full story! Sure, we like them a lot; just need time to go through all of them. Anyhow, everybody who sees the photos is very much impressed how good they are!! Everybody says – congratulations for the photographers, how did you find them? Unbelievable they are, I am simply speechless… This is exactly what I wanted to have as memories; you have managed to capture everything, the global picture, as well as the tiny emotions.”
