COLORADO ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHERS

WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT AND IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?

 

The term “elopement” has evolved over the years but the simplest way to describe it is a small, intimate marriage. While the traditional wedding focuses more on bringing a large crowd of family and friends together for a big celebration, an elopement generally consists of less than 15 guests in attendance. These types of weddings are becoming increasingly popular amongst brides and grooms for a variety of reasons:

 

•They’re generally more affordable than a traditional wedding
•There is more flexibility when choosing ceremony locations
•It’s a private affair
•The stress of having to entertain hundreds of guests is eliminated
•And our favorite: additional time and options for creative photos!
 

 

If any of these appeal to you, then an elopement is probably right for you!

 

WHY WE LOVE ELOPEMENTS, AND WHY YOU SHOULD TOO

 

During a traditional wedding, there are a lot of different factors that can limit the opportunities for taking creative images. Typically, we’re restricted to staying at the venue or in nearby locations and we’re also forced to take photos in a certain time window. With smaller weddings the options are endless because we can plan when to take photos for optimal lighting conditions and can also visit a variety of locations for different scenery. This allows us to get extra creative and really provide a unique photography experience for you.
