Elena Lazuli remembers this bridal processional well, she says. The Belgrade, Serbia-based wedding photographer observed as the party danced and sang freely, with all eyes on the bride. “Her dress suited her energy—it was fresh, it was unique, and like her, full of rapture,” she recalls. “I wanted to capture that. That feeling that everything is just the way it is because of her and her love.”
Stephanie Keegan wanted to make her couple’s dreams of a “moody Washington coastline elopement” come true at Olympic National Park in the Pacific Northwest. “The fog was so heavy that day that the visibility was maybe only a half a mile,” Keegan recalls. “This made for dramatic scenery—the rock formations were barely able to peer through the haze.” The tide was low, giving Keegan and this couple “ample room to play and wander along the smooth sand. Amidst the chaos of 2020, this photo represents the calm, steady and persevering love between this couple.”

Juliana Cole captured the adapted iteration of a couple’s wedding in December last year. Determined to get married in 2020, they downsized their guest list and opted for a ceremony at the bride’s alma mater in Ohio. Cole wanted to get portraits inside to escape the winter chill, and “while looking for spots to use indoors,” she explains, “I saw the massive windows and knew that I’d be able to use them to capture the really dramatic effect of the light coming in to highlight the couple. When I put them in front of the window and told them to just soak in that ‘just married feeling,’ they just stood there in a little love cocoon.”

Myriam Ménard styled and planned an elopement in Chile, where she has lived for the last five years. She took to mountains that were only an hour outside of downtown Santiago, near the ski resort Valle Nevado, where people can climb up and reach an altitude of 3,500 meters. With the sun pouring in, Ménard photographed the groom, a friend and photojournalist, and the bride, a model and makeup artist, climbing in the sky.

Gabrielle Desmarchais flew from Montreal to Thailand last February to photograph a wedding between a couple who had met in Ottawa, Canada, a few years prior. A couple days before the ceremony, on Valentine’s Day, Desmarchais wandered the streets of Bangkok with the couple to take portraits. “Bangkok was waking up slowly,” she recalls. “The shops were getting ready to open, the deliveries were being made and people were rushing to go to work. I asked the couple to cross the busy street, and I stayed on the other side to take photos of them with tuk-tuk and motorcycles passing in between us, creating that movement blur.”
