Sydney Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

NO STOPPING LOVE - In recent months, many of our wedding photographers have communicated their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are quickly moving forward with smaller ceremonies.

By planning a simple Sydney elopement, couples are able to stay present in the moment and fully absorb the impact of their wedding day. Given the fact that many couples feel more natural and at ease in intimate settings, it's no surprise that some of the most breathtaking wedding images come from elopements.

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

Sydney Photographers for Large or Small Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Sydney 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.

New South Wales-AUS WPJA members are ready to document any small, courthouse, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Sydney 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 Sydney wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Who are the best Sydney wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Sydney 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 top-ranked Sydney wedding photographers?
A: The WPJA created the original wedding photographer ranking systems. Our innovative system is based on contest winning points, meaning that the Sydney photographers you see at the top of your search results page have recently won the most — and the most recent — contest awards. Our contests judge photographers based on their creativity, style, composure, and ability to capture the heart of any couple's story on their wedding day.

Hey Alan, We just got the USB photos yesterday and love them soooooo much. Still going over them all. I was right about the beach ones and I’m so glad we ended up doing that was a great idea :-) Michael and I are very glad we got you for our wedding. Thank-you, talk soon. Regards, Skye

Hi Florent, The images look fantastic! It's bringing back the memories again! Thanks so very much for your great work and also for your support on the actual day itself! You kind of became the adhoc time-keeper and a calming presence as you were so organised (more so than any of us) and also joked around with us so that made the day less stressful and a whole lot more fun. As for Thailand, we had a blast! If you ever are in Phuket, you HAVE to go the The Shore at Katathani... amazing. Look forward to catching up with you.

You are a talented and accommodating photographer. Booking you and your team was very simple and throughout the lead-up to our wedding you were clear and efficient. On the day, you and your team were unfailingly polite and friendly to everyone you came across, and made us and all the guests feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Your team tried the best to accommodate the guests, our family and our demand without complaints. You are great talent for capturing a feeling in an image. You delivered a beautiful set of images that capture many very happy memories despite the occasionally gloomy weather on the day. We were particularly impressed with the shots taken at the rooftop of Excelsior Hotel. I’m sure we will continue to enjoy looking through them for years to come.
