Elopement photography Melbourne

Elopements are beautiful, incredibly personal and completely focused on your love for each other. They give you the freedom to adventure almost anywhere in the world together and let each other know how important your relationship is.

Elopements are all about intimacy and I love that they bring you so close to the core of your love with just a few people or a celebrant to witness that. I love having the honour of documenting all the tiny details of that closeness.

I love to be there finding and capturing all the emotion, intimacy and adventure that go into your elopement story. You’ll be able to show your day in the most beautiful way to friends and family that weren’t present.

If you want plenty of time for relaxed couple portraits, we can do that without the rush of getting back to a reception. The possibilities are endless with an elopement. I would be honoured to witness and document you as a couple at such a beautifully intimate time of your lives.

So many good elopement locations in Melbourne

Seriously, within Melbourne itself or just a short drive, Melbourne has it all. You could say the “I do’s” at one of Melbourne’s small trendy wedding venues (See this blog post for some ideas) or just a short drive to either the beautiful, rugged coastlines or the big old forests.

Check out the images below as an example of what a forest elopement could look like near Melbourne.

    Hi there,

    Roula here, from Jakarta, Indonesia. I’m wondering if you do take any pre-wedding/short couple photo sessions. My fiancé and I are planning to visit Melbourne in mid January 2018 and thought it would be a good idea to take some photos.

    Look forward to hear back from you soon!

    Thank you 🙂

    I would like to inquire the price for a few hours wedding photography to cover our small and short wedding at the Victorian Marriage Registry Office (Melbourne CBD) on 28th October 2018. Thank you.
