Jennifer and Scott got married!
One thing I love most about elopements is how unique they can be. Scroll down to see some highlights of Jennifer + Scott’s elopement at a local art gallery in Fort Worth.
What happens at an elopement?
One of the most common questions I get about my elopement photography packages in DFW is how the flow of the day goes. This part is pretty much up to you, BUT I’ll tell you what usually happens.
I’ll show up a little early and get my gear set up.
Planning Your Day
Before your elopement, we’ll have a consult call where we talk about your personalities, what you’re comfortable with, and what your vision for your elopement is. I’ll help you develop your elopement day timeline and answer any questions you have along the way with a fast response time.
Once you get there, I’ll start snapping little behind-the-scenes photos of things getting set up. We’ll roll into your ceremony where I’ll take all the photos you’d get with a full wedding – walking down the aisle, putting on your rings, your first kiss, and reaction after it sinks in. I love getting the reactions of your friends and fam and the details of your ceremony space that make your elopement unique.
Newlywed + Family Photos
Then we’ll usually do a group photo followed by some quick family photos. For Jennifer + Scott’s elopement, since they’d chosen such a cool venue, I took a snap of every guest standing next to their favorite piece of art. Then we moved into newlywed photos of just the couple. This part can be more traditional if that’s your style, we can get creative, or a mix of both! We’ll discuss what you want your couples photos to look like before your elopement. After that I usually let people get back to their guests and celebrate their marriage. If you choose to add some more time onto your elopement photography package, I would tag along to your reception and keep taking photos there, usually more candid-style.

Adding Reception Coverage to your Elopement Package
Jennifer + Scott decided to add on an extra half hour so I could get a few photos of their reception space. They set up a beautiful private room at Double Eagle Steakhouse in Fort Worth to hold a private intimate mini reception with their closest friends and family.
This is the best part of eloping – getting to make it your own. You can have your ceremony and a little reception to follow if you want. You can still cut the cake together. You can still dance if you want. You can still celebrate yourself.
I always offer extra time by the half-hour if you want a little extra elopement coverage.
