How to still get married during Covid-19, and how to make it just as awesome!
Get married and have an incredible wedding day this year even with Covid-19 going on.
I know things are rough right now, and as a wedding photographer I am seeing hearts broken and dreams crushed of having a 2020 or even 2021 wedding. I’m also seeing couples taking things into their own hands, and having adventure elopements! This is an amazing idea for couples who are bummed right now about Covid-19, and looking for an equally epic wedding day. It’s also a great idea for couples who were never really into the idea of a big wedding anyway (Hello, that’s meeeee!).
The world has never been so receptive to the idea of a small meaningful ceremonies and elopements. Now more than ever couples are asking, "How do I get married without a lot of people?” I believe deeply how amazing and wonderful elopements are, and I believe in creating and crafting an entire experience using all of my creativity on you as not only your photographer, but your guide for the day. Elopements are not photoshoots.…they are your wedding day with an amazing and meaningful experience focused on YOU!
You need at LEAST 6 HOURS AND HERE IS WHY:
1 to 2 hour elopements? That’s totally not enough you guys. I want more, and couples want more. You deserve a meaningful and super fun full day experience from start to finish. Imagine having an amazing story of your adventurous elopement day and telling friends and family the story of “that’s how we got married!” You deserve the exact same options that a large wedding day photographer would offer you. It’s called a “wedding day” for a reason, and eloping is so much more than saying vows and taking portraits.
Elopements don’t have to be just 2 people. An elopement is any kind of intimate wedding experience where the focus is just on the couple. A large event wedding is more of a performance that shifts the focus more on the overall wedding experience.
Elopements can be anywhere! You do not have to hike 10 miles or jump under a waterfall in your dress. For example, you can see a timeline here of what an urban elopement between Tim and I would look like here in Orlando Florida.

I have SO MANY IDEAS for Orlando and Florida elopements. An elopement can be an intimate wedding at the place he or she proposed, on a rooftop, your favorite brewery, or your home. Any style for any vibe! Be authentic to who you are as a couple, and point it towards an intimate wedding experience.
If the two of you could go anywhere do anything or see anything or experience anything what would that day look like? What would you eat, what would you do, where would you go? Think of an awesome date day. Places meaningful to you. Places you would like to go but have never seen before. Roadtrip. Go Sightseeing. Make a campfire and roast marshmallows and do your first dance around the fire. Eat your dream foods with a private chef in an airbnb. An elopement can be an intimate wedding at the place he or she proposed, on a rooftop, your favorite brewery, or your home. Any style for any vibe! Be authentic to who you are as a couple, and point it towards an intimate wedding experience.
How do you tell people?
Instead of running off to marry in total secrecy, couples are creating fun elopement announcements or including their immediate family and friends in on the fun. Instead of last-minute decisions to run away to Vegas in secrecy, now eloping can be just as planned and thoughtful as a big wedding.
I could keep going on and on! I'm just happy to educate brides on this awesome idea, and I hope you elope!
