Sydney elopement photography

Are you looking at eloping? Are you like the couple below who were married at the Intercontinental Hotel in Double Bay?

This was one of my all time favourite photoshoots. Valerie and Jean-Sebastian had been working here in Sydney for a while. They had moved from Canada a few years before and while here in Sydney became engaged. They decided they would elope here in Australia before migrating back to Canada.

The ceremony was held in their hotel room at the Intercontinental Hotel at Double Bay with the wonderful celebrant Toni Elsley. Val’s parents had made the trip over for the ceremony while JS’s parents skyped in from Canada to witness it. A few connection issues delayed the ceremony for a little but once it was underway it all went beautifully.

Once the ceremony was over, we had pretty much free rein to take as long as we needed and with the help of a new Tesla Model S, were able to go to some awesome locations around Sydney CBD. What made this wedding so much fun to photograph was that there were really no restrictions with it. Valerie and JS left it to me for the locations and so we hit the city and as many locations as we could.

Not having the time pressure of getting back to the reception allowed us to really focus on images. We had discussed the style of imagery they liked and to my delight, they loved the idea of a fashion style shoot. Val’s dress was absolutely stunning and was perfect for fashion based wedding photography.

If this is the kind of wedding you are thinking of, then let’s chat.
