A Secret Elopement: Sneak Peek | NYC Elopement Photographer


Elope in NYC Sarah Hoppes Photography

Elopement photography is such a fun job.  Tiny weddings and elopements are so romantic, and they have a special place in my heart.  While I love all kinds of weddings, I’m drawn to the simplicity of an elopement. Two people decide they want to get married, and they go do it.

Last week, Chris and I shot video and photos of a city hall wedding for an absolutely wonderful couple.  They flew here from overseas to be married at city hall, and their friends came from all over to celebrate with them.  From beginning to end, their wedding day was relaxed and full of love.  Their elopement is a bit of a secret, so only their immediate family and the friends who were with them in New York know it even happened.  They plan to use the photos and video to surprise everyone later this year.

This “sneak peek” post is extra sneaky, to keep from ruining the surprise for anyone. You’ll have to check back later photos that show their lovely faces.  For now, enjoy a teeny, tiny peek at a fabulous day!

  1. Gorgeous! I actually really love the anonymous aspect of this (even though you can tell from the photos that this couple is very good looking). There’s an added mystery and art to these images. Beautifully done! 🙂

    • Thank you! We were really happy with everything that day. After Chris and I shot them getting ready with their friends, we could tell the day was going to rock, hard. Everyone was relaxed, funny, welcoming, and kind from the start. Also, the location they picked to get ready was a loft with an entire wall of north-facing windows, all white walls, white plexi tables, and a wall of small mounted mirrors with cool artwork next to the makeup table. In other words, an ideal location for flattering light with interesting detail shots. When we left to start heading to city hall, he and I lagged behind a bit for high fives.

  2. As usual, Sarah’s unique “eye” captures the joy of a wedding as both personal and as art. I agree about the mystery of not seeing their faces and look forward to the rest of the photos.
