Start by hiring a photographer whose style you connect with. If you love emotional photos of sweet moments, look for a photographer who shows that kind of work and knows how to achieve those photos. Are you dreaming of grand landscape shots with you and your partner? Find an elopement photographer with an eye for it! Don't be afraid to tell them what you love about their work!
Feel more grounded and present in your elopement experience by having a relaxed timeline for your day. Budget plenty of time for activities and don’t skimp on time with your photographer. By avoiding feeling rushed, you’ll be calmer and connected with your partner. When you’re not worried about a tight schedule, you can focus on meaningful moments, which makes for more authentic photos. When you’re truly enjoying your day with your partner, it shows in your photos!
Work with a photographer that will help you feel comfortable in front of the camera! Throughout your experience, I’ll be making photos feel more like a fun day together rather than a stiff series of poses. I’ll guide you through special exercises to help you get in the right mindset so that I can capture your true selves. I will also encourage you to lay your insecurities aside (I’ve got you covered!) so you can be fully present. Authentic moments, rather than posed “perfection” bring not just beautiful photos, but also the best experience.
