Elopement Photographers for Small Israel Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Tel Aviv 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.

Members are ready to document any pop-up, 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.

We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your symbolic, non-traditional, outdoor, 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.

Istanbul wedding photography and elopements by Derya Engin, of Turkey

Even in my early years, photography has always been a passion in my life, started taking photos of almost everything I find worth to see when I was a teenager. I got my post graduate degree in photography in 2008 and I've been shooting weddings and elopements for 11 years by now. I love to capture the love and passion and happiness between the couples and I'm experienced in destination weddings and elopements. I define myself as a wedding photojournalist when it comes to capturing the day. I focus on capturing the most natural and special moments of your special day and I do care about bringing the artistic look in every image. If missed, the moment is lost forever. It is my passion, responsibility, and expertise to capture those moments for you to cherish and remember for years to come. To tell you about myself a little more; I was born in 1982 and I am happily married for 10 years. I am a dreamer, a traveler and my favourite colour is purple! To get to know more about me and my works, you can simply visit my website and drop me a line. Looking forward to meet you! [Istanbul Wedding Photographer]

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions.

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

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

Derya, we can't thank you enough for your contribution to our wedding. You and your team truly went above and beyond to ensure you captured every moment. It meant so much that you helped us capture the evening before with all our traditions. At every step of the process you helped us stay calm and natural. You have an amazing combination of professionalism and creativity. You and your team fit naturally into the whole wedding and were flexible enough to go with the flow. The end result was breathtaking. Both the photos and the video were stunning and we couldn't be happier. Thank you for capturing these memories we'll cherish always.
