Kick Off Your Shoes and Get This Out-Of-The-Box Wedding Underway
A look at traditional weddings
✗ 12+ hours with hardly any intimate, one-on-one time with the person you’re actually marrying! (I said it…)
✗ Stressed and overwhelmed about doing what everyone else wants
✗ 100+ guests with hardly any time to greet everyone, let alone enjoy a real conversation
✗ Not enough time for those must-have couple photos between getting ready and heading to the ceremony
A look at creating your own traditions
✓ A few easygoing, dreamy hours — spending most of that time with your fiance
✓ Focused on doing whatever you want, how you want to
✓ Less than 50 guests with only your closest friends and family so you can really remember moments with them
✓ Reserved time for you and your fiance to take the photos that will bring back the goosebumps year after year
An elopement is an intimate, custom wedding that focuses on the couple As opposed to an 8-12 hour wedding day, an elopement is a tailored experience in which couples get married wherever they want to, however they want to, surrounded only by their closest family and friends. Local or at a destination, you can hire other vendors (florists, planners, food trucks), or just stick with a photographer (hey there) who helps you plan and capture it all.
At a beach, on a boat, with your dog...if you could do anything to celebrate the love of your life, what would it be? Take that idea and make it your wedding. (Those Bachelor dates you see on TV are a good start.)
Ready To Elope And Looking For Someone To Show You The Ropes?
Meeting in person is a super important part of the process. If we can’t make coffee or cocktails work, your engagement session is ideal for getting comfortable with the camera (and me!).
I have the capability to plan your entire wedding day to the minute if you trust me to do so. As someone who lives every minute with my couples (wedding after wedding), I know the exact logistics we need to keep in mind.
I might be your only vendor and I get that. So I’ll be in touch every step of the way with reminders, planning guides and support (easing the nerves and bumping up the excitement).
Can’t wait to share the news (#justhitched)? I send sneak peeks within a week of the wedding day so your followers can see the news in all its glory (your glory). You’re welcome.
That’s way ahead of the industry standard, I can tell you that. You’ll get access to all of the final, edited images so you can download and share away. Send mom the link right away, will ya (or just give me her email!)?
Yes, I write blog posts about almost every wedding! But by this, I also mean that I’m here before and after your wedding. I want to cheer you on after the photos are taken and the honeymoon is over.
“I’m honestly so overly happy with the experience!! Blew away my expectations!! We were nervous we would not connect and feel comfortable with the photographer. We could not have been more wrong!! She was easy to talk to, was cheerful the whole time and picking the date and location went flawlessly!! She was ready with pose ideas and helped put us at ease in front of the camera and brought our true personalities out in these pictures. Amy had amazing directing skills, laughed with us the whole time, and captured the love we have for each other!
“And the gallery was amazing! So much better than I could have dreamed they would have turned out!!! Our sneak peeks were amazing and somehow she managed to blow us away even more with the rest of the photos!! We are still getting rave reviews from family and friends saying they are some of the best photos they have seen and that she truly captures the love we have for each other! Amy truly captures those natural moments in such a beautiful and dreamy way. Our experience with Amy Britton Photography could not have been more amazing!!
Blown away at full gallery!
“Our time with Amy from start to finish was magical! It was fun, silly, lovey dovey, and never awkward. Amy is a breath of fresh air and an amazing photographer. I have never in my life LOVED every single photo taken of myself. I’m just in awe of how amazing every single picture she took of us looks! And not just that but, how she really did capture our love story in these pictures. These are the most meaningful photos of my husband and I. Amy was so right about recommendations, the location, everything, and it just all came together like a fairy tale. I trust her judgement!
"My husband and I said numerous times how comfortable Amy made us feel and how fun she made the session. It was seriously like we had known her for so long! I love how open and direct she was. So very sweet and everyone’s personal hype person! It was so nice to see how excited Amy was for us and how special she made us feel. You can tell she loves what she does and that’s amazing - especially this day and age! I never knew there could be someone out there who really wants every detail to be so perfect for their clients like Amy did. So sweet, so understanding , so very talented."
"If you’re looking for a talented photographer, stop looking because you’ve found the winner! Amy made us feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera while delivering amazing pictures! My fiancée nor myself had not had professional photos taken before so we didn’t know what to expect. Amy blew us out of the water with whatever expectations we had! She was able to guide us to poses that felt comfortable and captured the in between moments that are special. As awesome as our actual session was, we love the pictures even more!"
Traveling to the same place at the same time as me? If the stars align like that, we may as well align our schedules too! Here’s where I’m headed next. Let me know if you want to meet me there and plan a small elopement of your own.
Does the shoe fit?
We won’t know until we just go ahead and have a conversation. Say hi and we’ll chat over coffee (or the computer if we have to). Knowing you and connecting with you is the first box we need to check. After that, all boxes go out of the window for a custom, out-of-the-box experience.
1 - LET’S TALK
Get the show on the road.
Book your package and take a whole lotta stress off your shoulders. I use a convenient online form to get your contract signed and invoice secured. After that, I’m all yours for planning, photographing and personalizing this adventure. (We won’t be hiking, but we will be on cloud nine with a fun, laid back and spur-of-the-moment approach that doesn’t overlook the essentials.)
2 - BOOK YOUR EXPERIENCE
Celebrate that proposal.
Although your elopement may be short and sweet (it doesn’t have to be!), I’ll encourage you to set aside a little time before the wedding to take engagement photos! This is a prime opportunity to get to know me (and for me to get to know you better of course) and learn what to expect when working with me. This makes it a breeze on the actual wedding day!
3 - TAKE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS
Talking about good times.
Whether your elopement itself is simple and laid back or carefully planned down to every detail, I’ll help you narrow down the exact timing for the day so that it goes exactly the way you want it to. Like Disneyworld, it’s the intricate planning (have you seen that park?) that leads to perfection.
4 - PLAN YOUR TIMELINE
My favorite part.
Pop the champagne, play the music, hit the beach or explore the sprawling gardens at a Florida estate, let’s get you married. I’ll make sure you get irreplaceable photos from this irreplaceable day with my camera in hand, timeline in tow and good vibes in mind.
5 - ELOPE IN STYLE
Settle into married life with photos that last.
You’ll feel like you’re hardly home from your honeymoon when you get your full wedding gallery (4 weeks after eloping). With print rights and online images, you’ll have it all.
6 - LIVE IT UP
During engagement sessions, I’ll treat it like date night with music, cocktails, etc. Using prompts to get you warmed up to the camera, it’s a super fun process! I’ll even show a few raw images as we go so you can see the beauty I get to witness on my end! Elopement photography is a little more candid, but I’ll make sure you feel guided every step of the way.
I want your photos to last and look just like the day that you lived so my style is definitely more bright and true to life, using natural light for those must-have golden tones. And the age old question "you can photoshop that, right?" The short answer is no. Think of it like this; If there is something temporary like a blemish or bruise that will be gone shortly after your session, yes I will be sure you look your best. But retouching or changing your appearance is not part of the process.
All photos are backed up to a hard drive and online gallery for safekeeping! As simple and secure as that!
Let’s make a splash with a wedding you’ll never forget. And if I had any say, your dog could definitely be the witness.
I couldn't imagine sharing such an intimate and personal moment (my wedding day!) with people that I barely knew. I also couldn't do it without the people I felt closest to. So, we dedicated an entire weekend to celebrate and we were overwhelmed with joy. It was a pure celebration of our love with a focus on what was important to us. People still tell us today that our wedding was the most special one they've ever been to because of how much time they got to spend with us!
Engagement sessions can make your wedding day a little more special and a little less stressful. While you may have not considered taking engagement photos (or using them for save the dates!), that time together gives you an opportunity to celebrate your engagement, and to get comfortable working with a professional photographer. When your wedding rolls around, you’ll know what to expect and the photos will feel more genuine!
