Yes! Sorry, I couldn’t wait to get the punchline. Of course you should get wedding photos if you’re eloping. You should get wedding photos if you’re standing up in front of 200 people or if it’s just the two of you.

This is a special time in your life that will never be repeated. In 20 years, you’re going to want some photos. Plus, if you’re eloping, you’re going to need to have some photos to show to everyone who will be interested in your wedding day!

The question now is: What kind of photos should you get?

Engagement Photos

This is perfect if you want a more planned photo shoot. Also perfect for gorgeous close-ups of the ring! Engagement photos often go on Save the Dates, but they can for sure be a sweet reminder just for the two of you. The thing about engagement photos too, is you can wear whatever you want! I love to see how couples personalize their engagement shoots for their love story!

Use your engagement photos as a background for a reception announcement. Just because you’re eloping doesn’t mean you can’t have a party! Or simply use them for your mantelpiece as a lovely decoration.

Lifestyle Photos

A little bit different from engagement photos, lifestyle photos are pictures of your life, daily routine, habits. The everyday moments are the ones that so often slip away, but they are the most precious. If engagement photos don’t sound like your thing, and you’re really committed to an intimate ceremony, a lifestyle photo shoot can be a bit more casual, more about you as a couple everyday than on the special moment of your engagement.

Wedding Photos

Some of the sweetest wedding photos are from elopements. Have a photographer follow your whole experience whether that be a lowkey dash to the courthouse or a romantic jetset to the ocean! A photographer can capture the moments that you might not have time to. I love to capture the special moments between two people that make each relationship unique.

Really looking for a private ceremony? Have your photographer rendez-vous with you before or after the wedding to get pictures of you in your fantastic outfits!

Your wedding is a once in a lifetime moment, so any photos you choose to have will be once in a lifetime photos. No matter where or when you get married, having beautiful photos will give you a memory to look back on for the rest of your life!
