These are just a few questions that I ask myself when I’m photographing an elopement. As a Film Elopement Photographer the process is a little bit different than digital. Film forces you to slow down, think about how you are shooting, and dive into the story that you are telling.
Questions that I ask myself when I am shooting an elopement
What is my couple feeling at this certain moment?
How do the parents show love to their kids?
Who are the introverts and the extroverts?
Are the siblings close?
What relationship do the parents have?
How does my couple hold hands and hug one another?
What makes my couples comfortable?
Were there any recent deaths in the family?
Who are the most loved and cared for?
Are there certain details or jewelry that’s important to the family?
How does the couple put their love on display?
What makes my couple the happiest?
Who are the people that my couples are closest to?
What’s my own body language?
Did I photograph the humans that are closest to my couple?
Why am I documenting this moment with this camera, angle, and lighting?
Film Elopement Photographer + Margaret Wroblewski
Film has really forced me too critically think about the stories that are in front of me and how to document them in the best way possible for my clients.
Elopement photography is such a personal job and it’s so vital to be empathetic and be aware of the little stories occurring around you all the time 🤍
