So my fiancé and I are planning to elope, we will have I think 8 guests (parents & siblings) and we don’t care about traditional ‘weddingy’ photos. We aren’t having a reception and we’re getting married in a town hall
I have contacted a few photographers about just getting half hour / 45 mins (at most) of pictures after the ceremony of all of us together, however because it’s a wedding they insist on charging their wedding prices and so we’d be paying for a minimum of 5 hours of photos for a session we don’t want to take an hour.
Should I not mention that it’s a wedding when asking about prices? Is there another way of finding affordable photographers? I don’t want to saddle a parent with having to take pictures of everyone so any help here would be brilliant
we have everything pretty much sorted, i'm doing my own hair and i'm going to sephora for makeup. it's just the two of us and i have a corset back dress (didn't want one but fell in love) basically i want to have someone else do up my dress as i want him to see me in it already fastened etc
anyone else had to ask hotel staff for something for this or what did you do?
I have finally had enough of trying to plan a wedding (my fiancé and I are the ones paying for it completely, after all)! The pressure and high expectations just ruin the “getting married high” and we’ve decided a National Park with just the two of us, an officiant, and a photographer is truly what we’d prefer. We want somewhere absolutely breathtaking, we have such a love for nature and want to pick a park that will help magnify our experience of the elopement.
That being said, I’ve been looking at Yosemite, Bryce Canyon, and Great Basin. I wanted to also ask if anyone had any suggestions on a park that may be more secluded and not as popular with tourists? And if anyone has any specific photographer/videographer, elopement package experiences that were amazing? When is the best time to go? Even if it’s not a National Park, I’m always down for suggestions if you think it would fit what we’re looking for :)
