EXPERTS IN NYC ELOPEMENT AND INTIMATE WEDDINGS
- We have 6+ years of experience photographing weddings and elopements in NYC.
- We have a creative background and always look for a unique style that captures the essence of the city.
- New York is a busy and constantly changing city. We have expert knowledge of the city and know the coolest locations and how to move around in the nicest, fastest and less stressful way.
- Leila & David always work as a team. Leila takes artistic, carefully planned shots while David makes sure there’s a great background, plans on locations and assists during the shoot (this can be really useful for taking editorial shots without having to worry about having someone to watch over your coats and belongings in a busy NY street).
- We are flexible and reasonable. We are always open to finding another available time, in case of terrible weather or if something unplanned happens.
- All of our elopement packages (for less than 10 guests) include the officiating of the ceremony by NYC registered officiant David Leon. He performs meaningful non religious ceremonies at a cozy and special spot in the city to be discussed with the couple.
CITY HALL ELOPEMENTS
The New York City Clerk’s office is an amazing multicultural space that sometimes can get really busy. We have done quite a few weddings there so we will be able to provide some advice on what days / times are less crowded.
For information about the procedure you can check The City Hall Marriage License Bureau website where you will find every detail you should know. You need to apply there for a marriage license at least 24 hours before you can be legally married. License is good for 60 days. You can find information on how to get married in New York State in this official website.
In case you need a witness just let us know and we’ll bring our ID’s with us! :)
CENTRAL PARK ELOPEMENTS
Getting married in Central Park is a great way have a genuine New York wedding with amazing views and the feeling of being surrounded by nature. Central Park Weddings are always exciting and you literally feel New York is watching over you . For weddings of 20 or more people you will need a permit.

ELOPING ANYWHERE IN NYC
The great thing about eloping is that you can get married virtually anywhere. You just need an officiant – like David – and a witness (which could be Leila if it’s just the two of you). Our officiant service is included in all of our elopement packages! A sample of the ceremony vows can be read here
