Why elope?

If you’re looking for an intimate and stress-free way to tie the knot, eloping might be the perfect choice for you. At Pursell Photography, we understand the appeal of an elopement ceremony focused on just the two of you, without the pressure and distractions of a large wedding.

With elopements, you have the freedom to choose the perfect location for your vows and photos, without being limited to select venues. And, without the audience to worry about, you can focus entirely on each other and the significance of the moment.

If the idea of speaking your vows in front of others feels overwhelming, an elopement might be just the right fit. Let us help you create a worry-free and drama-free experience, and capture every moment of your special day with our photography .

"The photos and the experience were everything I had hoped for. If you want photos that are nothing less than epic on the most important day of your life, I strongly recommend choosing Will as your photographer"
