The 9 Best Elopement Photographers in Cincinnati

An elopement can be a magical event. And with any special occasion, it’s always nice to have snapshots capturing the moment. Whether you are planning an elopement in the city, the countryside, or out of state, these Cincinnati elopement photographers will expertly document your day in all its beauty. 

1. Eastlyn & Joshua

Eastlyn & Joshua are a married photographer duo who travel frequently to Jackson, Wyoming, as well as any location on this globe where they can capture authentic love. As experienced photographers and travelers, they know how to work with once-in-a-lifetime moments and modify plans if the weather won’t cooperate.

When you work with them, you are not only getting their photography expertise (which is vast), you benefit from their adaptability, desire to capture each day as a unique event, and love for all things wedding-related.

2. Jordan and Zach of Panzeca & Co.

A certain skillset is required when photographing intimate events, including the ability to be unobtrusive since you won’t have a crowd to blend into. In addition, you need the ability to work in a variety of rapidly changing lighting and weather conditions and a dedication to keeping the romantic spirit of adventure throughout the session.

These are skills Cincinnati elopement photographers Jordan and Zach have in abundance. We adore their flair for capturing each day as it truly is—in all its emotions and beauty. Highlighted by their slightly moody editing, each gallery is romance and love in photo form.

3. Mary Andrikus

Serving Kentucky, the greater Cincinnati area, and beyond, Mary Andrikus not only loves to celebrate love, she wants to help you stop time and remember all of the intentional details of your day. She prides herself on being the photographer of nontraditional couples. That is, those who want every aspect of their day to reflect them even if that doesn’t include a huge guest list.

In addition, she caters to those who want their photographer to offer them the chance to celebrate the unique aspects of themselves and their day. We love how each of Mary’s projects is full of the couple’s personality and love, and it feels completely their own—the mark of a true documentary artist.

4. Rebecca of Bare Moments Photography

Rebecca started Bare Moments Photography in 2015, and since then she has focused on the unscripted kisses, the love conveyed by a hand against the chest, and the adventure inherent in two people committing themselves to each other for life. She excels at documenting the best moments of your day, and her unmatched skill is evident in her portfolio.

Not only are tiny details preserved, but her nontraditional approach means each session with her feels unique to the couple in front of her—no cookie-cutter poses here. In addition, Rebecca provides a wealth of knowledge about eloping in Ohio, from gorgeous outdoors locations to exchange vows all the way to romantic spots to spend your wedding night.

Her slightly moody style complements woodland and waterside weddings, enhancing the sense of romance you feel when you and your beloved say your vows surrounded by the beauty of nature. Based in Cincinnati but always willing to travel, Elizabeth deserves a look no matter where you’re tying the knot.
