There are any number of reasons why you may need a destination wedding or elopement / micro-wedding photographer. I have photographed nearly a hundred elopements and destination weddings that took place in New York City or the surrounding area. When it comes to destination weddings, NYC is a destination!
However, that does not mean I don’t also travel for weddings as well. From Maine to Florida to California, I have captured moments at weddings all around the United States.
During the pandemic, many couples decided they wanted to continue with their wedding plans and scaled back to a micro-wedding or “minimony” to comply with public health mandates. Now that restrictions are loosening up, some people have decided they like the idea of a more intimate gathering.
Whatever the style of wedding, I am happy to help you by not only capturing the amazing moments that make up your celebration, but by also helping with the logistics as much as I can. My experience can be especially helpful if you are coming into New York City from outside the area.
Elopements, Micro-Weddings, and Intimate Celebrations
Coming to NYC to elope? Planning a New York City Hall wedding? Do you just want a small, intimate celebration with close friends and family?
When I first started photographing weddings, I would photograph probably a dozen of these kind of weddings each year. While I still photograph a handful

Destination, Elopement, and Micro Wedding Planning Advice
I have been photographing weddings, including destination weddings and elopements, for more than twenty years. Please take a little free advice from someone with a lot of experience.
Planning an Elopement or Micro Wedding – Keep it Small & Simple
The less moving pieces there are, the easier it will be to change things up as the situation evolves.
If there are a lot of people involved, the more snags you can hit if you have to postpone or move the timeline around.
Best to keep it simple and small for now. Just the two of you (I am happy to be your witness) or just a few close family members and friends. Have a big party with all your people at a later date, and have me come photograph that as well.
Coming to New York or New Jersey? Think Locally!
When dealing with weddings in this area, especially New York City, there are a LOT of things that might not occur to someone who does not live here, or does not have extensive experience in the area. From where the best photo spots are to how long traffic will actually take you to get from location to location, these are the most basic instances.
Some locations may require permits to take photos. There may be a new, secret spot for amazing pictures that only the locals know about.
If you are planning in the New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, or Hudson Valley regions, all of these locations are within easy driving distance and I would be happy to be your elopement of micro wedding photographer!
