Eloping to the Greater Victoria area seems to be very popular, and for good reason. Victoria is a beautiful region with amazing food, stunning views, and an escape from big city life.
I love photographing elopements. They’re so intimate and relaxed, providing great opportunities for amazing portraits and emotional moments. My elopement photography packages begin at $1000 for up to three hours (not available on weekends unless booked less than 6 weeks in advance). Note: You can get married any day of the week in Victoria at a venue or a beach/park/wherever. You may have better luck booking vendors (such as photographers) for a weekday when we’re less busy with larger weddings.
The following are reviews from couples whose elopements I photographed:
“We are in love with our photos. They brought tears to our eyes — not only were they beautiful, but they were just what we wanted. You captured the details of that day so well! Thank you for the quick turn-around, too — we had family visiting this past weekend to celebrate and it was so great to be able to enjoy them with everyone. You received many compliments! Thank you again for capturing our special moment so beautifully and it was so great to work with you.”
“Lara captured unexpected & incredibly memorable moments throughout our elopement. She even drove us down to the beach herself to take even more wonderful pictures in front of the ocean. Our photo shoot was so much fun & we could not have asked for a more talented photographer. Lara really knows how to capture those little moments that make a wedding day so very special. We had the most amazing day. Thank you again Lara for helping us preserve every moment in perfect light!!! We’ll definitely be calling you up for our first anniversary.”
