Elopement Officiant Oahu | Officiating as your photog

Did you know I have a few officiant add-on options for your elopement photography? One of them being me as your officiant! The most common question I get about this add-on is:

“How do you officiate our elopement and take photos?”

This is a great question! Here’s the deal: When you have me as your officiant, it’s super low key and laid-back. I’m more or less just there to make it official for you. This means I secure the necessary permits to have your wedding, I assist you with getting your marriage license, and I make it official for you! I always say a few sweet words and then guide you to exchange vows while I step back and photograph the moment.

This is a great option for you if you want something super simple. Most couples who hike love this option. If you want an officiant to perform a more “traditional” ceremony, then I have officiants on my team or recommendations if you are looking for something in particular that we don’t offer.
