Hiring an Florida Wedding Photographer for Your Elopement

The Sunshine State is a popular location for weddings because of its warm year-round weather. We have seen a rise in couples planning elopements and intimate weddings in Florida. Everything from boat elopements to small venues with their closest family and friends. Even though we are an elopement directory, our elopement photographers in Florida do offer packages for micro weddings.  If you are planning an elopement, know that you can plan anything in South Florida from a beach elopement ceremony to exploring forested areas in Northern Florida.

Q&A For Your Florida 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 Does an Elopement Photographer in Florida Cost?

The price of an elopement photographer in Florida will vary, depending on what you want and what they offer in their photography packages. In Florida, you’ll find photographers charging from $2,000- $8,000 for elopement coverage. The question often becomes, what makes up the total cost? The main determining factor to the price is how many hours the photographer will be working with you both and where your location in FL is. The more you want to cover, the higher the price. We have seen couples plan full-day adventures, ceremonies only with some portraits, or multi-day adventures.

Here are some examples:

  • Commitment ceremony photos at an intimate wedding venue in Islamorada and portraits after the ceremony near Pelican Cove – $2,000
  • Elopement ceremony with loved ones at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park plus portraits at 2 additional locations near the ceremony – $4,500
  • Elopement ceremony on a boat exploring one of FL’s beaches with portraits after at multiple locations all day, with additional portraits the following day at a separate location. – $8,000

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?

When you think about elopement photographers, think about having a planner and photographer in one. A lot of photographers who document adventure weddings offer multiple services in their packages. This is because there are more things to consider when you’re covering an adventure elopement in comparison to a traditional wedding venue for 4-6 hours. When you’re meeting with your photographer, it’s important to ask, “What’s included in your Florida 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
  • Multi-day elopement adventure
  • Inclusive packages with all vendors you’ll need
  • Guidance for travel and accommodations
  • Wedding albums

Remember, 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 Florida Elopement?

Deciding how many vendors you need for your wedding day is entirely up to you. If you want to hire just a photographer as you adventure together, that’s completely OK! The same is true if you want to outsource all your vendors and DIY absolutely nothing. You don’t have to plan a big, traditional wedding to hire all types of vendors.

Explore our elopement directory to team up with a vendor in a different category OR ask your designated Florida photographer who they recommend.
