Hiring an Arizona Wedding Photographer for Your Elopement

Eloping may be a new concept to some, but adventure elopements have become popular in Arizona. Even if you don’t plan a “just us” elopement experience, you can always plan a small wedding ceremony. These Arizona wedding photographers offer services to couples who are planning to elope or have an intimate wedding. Elopements can be as personal as you want.

Q&A For Your Arizona Elopement Regarding Photographers

We put together some of the top questions we get from couples just like you when they are planning their elopement.

How Much Should You Spend on an Elopement Photographer For Your Arizona Elopement?

The total cost of a photographer in Arizona will vary for your elopement, depending on what you want and what they offer in their photography packages. In Arizona, you’ll find photographers charging from $4,000- $10,000 for elopement coverage. The main determining factor to the price is how many hours the photographer will be working with you both and where your location in AZ. The more you want to cover, the higher the price.

Here are some examples:

  • Commitment ceremony photos at an Arizona wedding venue or Airbnb and portraits after the ceremony – $4,000
  • Elopement ceremony with loved ones at Sedona plus portraits at 2 additional locations near the ceremony – $6,500
  • Elopement ceremony in Horseshoe Bend with portraits after at multiple locations all day, with additional portraits the following day at a separate location. – $10,000

Keep in mind these are estimates and every photographer has their prices set.

Why are Elopement Photographers so Expensive and What’s Included in the Fee?

Elopement photographers are more hands-on and tend to offer more services compared to traditional wedding photographers. Their elopement packages include these additional services built in. When you connect with a photographer, ask, “What’s included in your Arizona elopement package?”

Here are some items to go over during your meeting besides how long they are going to be with you taking photos:

  • Travel expenses
  • Set up and take down assistance for decorations
  • Officiant and witness protocol
  • Multi-day elopement adventure
  • Inclusive packages with all vendors you’ll need
  • Location scouting
  • Timeline planning
  • Permit and leave no trace guidance
  • Guidance for travel and accommodations
  • Wedding albums

Not all photographers will include everything from this list in their packages, so it’s important to ask all the questions when you connect with them!

Do I Need to Hire More Vendors Other Than a Photographer for My Arizona Elopement?

This depends on what YOU want on your wedding day. You can hire just an elopement photographer, especially if you’re planning a commitment ceremony. OR you can hire multiple elopement vendors and 100% outsource all your elopement adventure needs.
