Belgium Elopement Photographers

Belgium is a gorgeous places to elope for couples looking for a destination elopement that can double as their honeymoon. One of the most breathtaking locations for an outdoor wedding is the Sonian Forest, located just outside of Brussels. This ancient forest is both whimsical and the perfect escape. We love this area for an intimate elopement ceremony surrounded by towering trees and lush greenery. Another fantastic option is the Hoge Kempen National Park, known for its diverse landscapes featuring heathlands, forests, and lakes. Imagine exchanging vows in a secluded spot overlooking a serene lake. Amazing, right? Belgium’s rich history and charming architecture also provide an array of beautiful venues for couples seeking a more traditional yet adventurous wedding experience. From medieval castles to rustic barns, there’s something for every couple looking to create a truly unforgettable wedding day.

The following photographers are specialized vendors who are experienced in documenting Belgium elopements and micro weddings. 

Hiring a Belgium Wedding Photographer for Your Destination Elopement

Eloping is a new concept. Many couples who elope did not plan to elope when they first started planning their wedding. Oftentimes Belgium wedding photographers also offer services to couples who are planning to elope or have an intimate wedding. Additionally, some elopement photographers also offer their services for more traditional weddings. Don’t let us be an elopement blog that hinders you from reaching out to your dream Belgium wedding photographer.

If you are planning an elopement with a photographer who isn’t based in Belgium, then you should account for travel expenses in your elopement budget.

Q&A For Your Belgium 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?

Photographers in Belgium will vary, depending on what you want and what they offer in their photography packages. In Belgium, you’ll find photographers charging from €1900- €8500 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 Belgium is (this includes how far the location is from them initially PLUS how long it takes to get to the actual location when hiking). The more you want to cover, the higher the price.

Here are some examples:

  • Commitment ceremony photos at 1 location and portraits after the ceremony – €1900
  • Elopement ceremony with loved ones plus portraits at 2 additional locations near the ceremony – €3500
  • Elopement ceremony in one of Belgium’s national parks with portraits after at multiple locations all day, with additional portraits the following day at a separate location. – €8500

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 wear more “hats” when compared to traditional wedding photographers. Their elopement packages tend to also include additional services built in. When you’re meeting with your photographer, it’s important to ask, “What’s included in your Belgium 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
  • Location scouting
  • Timeline planning
  • Permit and leave no trace guidance
  • Set up and take down assistance for decorations
  • Officiant and witness protocol for marriage license requirements, especially for out of country travelers
  • Multi-day elopement adventure
  • Inclusive packages with all vendors you’ll need
  • Guidance for travel and accommodations
  • Wedding albums

Keep in mind that not all photographers will include everything in this list in their packages. Some of them might offer different tier options and some photographers may just offer traditional photo coverage.

Do I Need More Than a Photographer for my Belgium Elopement?

This depends on what YOU want on your wedding day. We have had plenty of couples hire only a photographer (and videographer), and they had an amazing time.

With that being said, you can 100% outsource and hire more elopement vendors to help you. Even though you are eloping, you can still hire a wedding planner, officiant, videographer, florist… You can even “elope” at a wedding venue in Belgium! The sky’s the limit.
