Elopement Photographers for Small United Arab Emirates Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small United Arab Emirates 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.

Middle East WPJA members are ready to document any civil ceremony, pop-up, fast, 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, religious, boutique, 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.

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.
