Destination elopements have become increasingly popular in recent years and for good reason. They offer a unique and intimate way to celebrate your love, surrounded by the beauty of your chosen location. Here are ten reasons why a destination elopement might be the perfect choice for you!
Intimate Setting. A destination elopement offers the opportunity to celebrate your love in an intimate setting. Rather than having to accommodate a large group of guests, you can focus on each other and the experience of being together in a beautiful location.
Personalization. With a destination elopement, you have the flexibility to create a truly unique and personalized experience. You can choose a location that holds special meaning to you or incorporate cultural traditions that are important to you. Here’s an article about adding personality to your wedding.
Privacy. A destination elopement offers privacy and the opportunity to escape from the distractions of everyday life. It allows you to focus on each other and the beauty of your surroundings.
Flexibility. With a destination elopement, you have the flexibility to choose your date and time, rather than being restricted by a traditional wedding schedule. Depending on your preferences of privacy and where you decide to elope, I highly recommend weekday elopements to avoid crowds in your portraits.
Ease of Planning
Cost-Effective. An elopement can be more cost-effective than a traditional wedding, especially if you opt for an all-inclusive package that includes everything from the ceremony to the reception. Here’s a link to an article about the costs of planning a destination elopement.
Stress-Free Planning. Planning a destination elopement can be much less stressful than planning a traditional wedding. With fewer details to worry about and the help of a professional planner, you can focus on enjoying the experience. I’m happy to help you plan your elopement, if I’m your photographer.

Smaller Environmental Footprint. A destination elopement can have a smaller environmental footprint than a traditional wedding. By choosing a location that is close to home or by incorporating eco-friendly practices into your elopement, you can reduce your impact on the environment.

Adventure. A destination elopement is the perfect opportunity for adventure. You can choose a location that offers outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, or surfing, and incorporate these into your elopement experience. Check out this article about planning a camping/glamping elopement!
And Most Importantly…
Memories. A destination elopement provides the opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime. It allows you to focus on each other and the beauty of your surroundings, creating a truly unforgettable experience.
In conclusion, a destination elopement can be a perfect way to celebrate your love in an intimate and unique setting. It offers flexibility, adventure, and the opportunity to create unforgettable memories. With the help of a professional planner, you can create a personalized and stress-free experience that is truly one-of-a-kind.
Your elopement day is one of the most important days of your life, and it deserves to be captured in the most epic way possible! When you choose to have a destination elopement, you’re already stepping outside of the box and opting for a unique and personalized experience. Don’t let that spirit of adventure stop at the ceremony – make sure your photos are just as incredible as your destination.
Think about it – when you’re old and grey and looking back on this day, what will you have to show for it? Memories are great, but nothing compares to being able to relive those moments through stunning, high-quality photos. Whether it’s standing on a mountaintop, walking hand in hand through a picturesque city, or exploring a hidden beach, your destination elopement is an opportunity to capture memories that will last a lifetime.
So don’t settle for mediocre photos on your elopement day – go for the gold and make sure your photographer is up to the task. Choose someone who understands your vision and can capture the essence of your destination in every shot. Trust us, you won’t regret it!
