What Photos to Expect with an Intimate Wedding Day

Cleveland, Ohio Elopement Photographer

Have you found yourself planning an intimate wedding day and wondering what your special memories might look like? What photos can be captures and what memories can you still experience as a couple with a small wedding. We are here to assure you that while your guest list may be smaller there are still so many heart filled moments to be captured.

Whether there are 2 guests or 400 guests on a wedding day some things simply don’t change. This post is to help give you an idea of what we might capture for you to tell your personal wedding day story.

All of these sweet heart filled moments can still happen and be beautifully captured for your to cherish for years to come.

  1. Your Details
  2. Ceremony
  3. Family Formals
  4. Portraits
  5. First Dance
  6. Toasts & Cake Cutting


There is something about an intimate day that makes every detail feel even bigger. A gorgeous bouquet, your rings that symbolize your commitment to each other, and the stunning earrings that give your overall look a stunning finish. Your details tell your story and create a beautiful picture of the vision for your day. You can still gather those meaningful heirlooms, thoughtful vows, and your wedding day jewelry.


These images will be nearly the same as before. Whether it be the moment your groom sees you walk down the aisle,  when you turn to each other to take hands, exchange rings, or your first kiss we will be there to capture these beautiful moments. Feel free to still include gorgeous moments like bubbles or a petal toss too! Sweet details like bubble and petals make it feel like the celebration you’ve always dreamed of and will look beautiful even with a smaller guest count.

Family Formals: 

While there may be fewer people in attendance we can still capture any groupings of family that you are comfortable posing with.


Something super special about an intimate wedding day is that portrait time becomes instantly relaxed and fun. With more freedom to the structure of your day we can spend more time creating stunning portraits.

First Dance

There is nothing more romantic than an intimate first dance on your own or with your very closest loved ones.


Want to have your loved ones share a sweet message to you? That sounds amazing. We’d love to capture it. Don’t forget to bring something to toast and celebrate your marriage with too!

Cake Cutting

Cutting the cake and enjoying a slice, or two is a memory many couples love on their special day. We can be sure to capture this for you as well!

Are you planning an intimate wedding day? We would love to capture your beautiful memories to cherish for a lifetime!
