WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT?
Merriam-Webster’s dictionary definition of elope is: “to run away secretly with the intention of getting married usually without parental consent” ; “to slip away/ESCAPE” . There is so much misconception nowadays on what it is to elope. I love the second meaning of the definition – to slip away; to ESCAPE. My definition to me are the lovers that want to escape the norm. The norm of having a big, traditional wedding that doesn’t necessarily fit YOU as a couple. The whole day is an intimate celebration and spiritual connection about YOUR LOVE, YOUR RELATIONSHIP, YOUR COMMITMENT and the focus is solely on the two of you. You want to celebrate your relationship the way you want and spend the entire day with your love and the people closest to you, savoring every single second. You want to relax and soak it all in – the moments, the love, the connection.
Escape the Norm
Let Stunning Portrait Photography create a day worth remembering!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
HOW LONG OF COVERAGE DO I NEED?
Who says an elopement is only a couple of hours? This is your elopement DAY - the whole day is a celebration of you two and why not capture the whole day?
You should have the option to capture every single moment of this wonderful, spiritual adventure that 1 or 2 hours is not enough hours to capture the raw emotions you two are sharing on your elopement DAY with the people you love. Your elopement isn't just the ceremony and few couple portraits afterwards, IT'S THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INTIMATE WEDDING & AN ELOPEMENT?
Personally I believe there is no difference. Both are small, intimate celebration with just the two of you, or a few family members or even 30 of your closest friends and family. As long as the focus of the day is on you two.
Our elopement/intimate wedding packages are the same in pricing for under 30 people. As long as the focus of your day is on the two of you and it's stress free. I would be honored to help capture those moments for you.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE?
I don't have a number for you. I don't limit the number of photos you will receive. It all depends on the day but I carefully sift through all the photos and choose the best of the best. You get all the edited, high-resolution photos curated on a beautiful online gallery with the ability to share pictures of your choosing to your social media accounts.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
During peak wedding seasons (May-September), approximately 6-8 weeks. Otherwise, 4-6 weeks. You do get sneak peeks within a week.
