2024 & 2025 List of Elopement Workshops and Styled Shoots

Whether you’re looking to upskill, connect with like-minded photographers, gather inspiration or just boost your portfolio, styled shoots and workshops can be a great way to reach your next goal. Workshops and Styled shoots are often run by experienced photographers who want to share their tips and tricks with you.

Styled Shoots are not real elopements, but..

A quick reminder that images from styled shoots, workshops, promotional shoots, free shoots and model calls are not eligible for the Elopement Photography Legend Awards (and most other competitions). However, you can absolutely reinforce what you’ve learned and level up your storytelling game at one of these practice shoots. The next time you’re shooting a real elopement, you can put those skills to good use.
