Weddings. The word alone can cause angst! Because contrary to popular belief, not everyone wants a big lavish affair or an expensive wedding. Sometimes there’s so much stress involved with organising a wedding that couples dream of escaping to a tropical island and marrying in secret. While some couples just want an intimate ceremony with a few close friends and family members. You save money, avoid stress and the day is just about the two of you. Whatever kind of wedding you choose is up to you! It’s your special day and you should have the kind of wedding you want. And it’s for this reason I offer elopement packages. Elopement packages are for those couples wanting a small, intimate and stress-free wedding; but still have stunning and professional wedding photography!

Sweet and Simple Elopement Packages
Now, elopement packages are designed for smaller, more intimate weddings. Elopement packages are available for weddings held from Monday to Thursday and are perfect for those weddings where it’s just about the two of you. And maybe a small group of family and friends.

Professional and Beautiful Photography
And just because you’re having a small wedding, doesn’t mean you scrimp on wedding photography. I photograph elopements with as much passion, excitement, fun and professionalism as my bigger wedding packages. And you still receive the same quality imagery in high resolution, with no watermarks, on a USB. The only difference with my elopement packages are, they are designed at a smaller scale and smaller price for your smaller wedding.

What’s Included in Elopement Packages
Because sometimes, you just don’t need 5 hours of photography at an elopement. So, these packages are short and sweet; just like your wedding!
For the short and sweet elopement, this package includes:
2 hours of photography
All high-resolution images images on USB
Need a little longer on your wedding day?
3 hours of photography
All high-resolution images on USB

Ready to Book Your Elopement Package
Choosing your wedding photographer is a big deal! And even though your photographer is with you for just a few hours, you need to make the most of that time. So find someone you have a connection with. Your photographer should feel like a friend, one who makes you laugh and one that you trust.
My approach to weddings is unobtrusive, candid and relaxed. I will capture your elopement as it unfolds and provide subtle guidance when needed. Because your day should be relaxed and fun and the right photographer will help to make that happen.
So, if I sound like the right photographer for your day, please drop me an email here or give me a call on 0418 882 778 and tell me all about your wedding day.
