Your day.

Your way.

Wedding photography at the Hillsborough County Courthouse, Tampa

Wherever you choose to tie the knot, I help you celebrate your big day.

 

Each wedding that I've covered at the Hillsborough County Clerk of Courts has been unique.

 

Although you may be one of many couples getting married there that day, your adventure is unique and your photos should be, too.

 

There are so many places we can photograph around the city after your ceremony that no two wedding galleries look alike.

"Because we invested in an amazing photographer, people who weren’t able to attend thought we had a traditional, expensive wedding!"

A wedding? In this economy?

The average cost of a traditional wedding in Central Florida is $28k

The couples I surveyed paid around $1.6k for their micro wedding...including photography!

Tips for getting married at the Tampa courthouse

The ceremony room at the courthouse is small and there are 12 chairs. The ceremony takes about 5 minutes.

 

Wherever you're from in the world, you can get married in Tampa.

 

After your ceremony, we'll adventure around the city taking your pictures so bring some comfy shoes to slide into when we're not shooting!

Advice from

other couples

I surveyed my courthouse wedding couples to learn the info and advice they might have for you. Here's what they said...

"Make this day about you and your spouse. However you choose to make your day memorable, professional photos are the way to go. They are worth it!"

-Theoshia

"I went to work the day after our courthouse wedding. I wish I had taken a few days off."

-Mary

"I wish I hadn't scheduled some things on our day so close together. I worried about large gaps of time and that I would get anxious, but I wish I'd scheduled more time between things. The day went by so fast. "

-Jamie

"You do you. People will have expectations, but at the end of the day, you’re marrying your partner, not society or your parents or some relatives who hate fun. Do what is authentic to your relationship and set the tone for your marriage."

-Madison

Why do couples choose a courthouse wedding?

As Florida's busiest courthouse wedding photographer, I've been studying the trend to better understand why couples choose to get married this way. A majority of my clients say the top reason for their choice is less stress.

"Elizabeth exceeded our expectations. She is a joy to be around and made our family & friends feel very comfortable.

 

We are in awe of our pictures and can’t stop getting compliments. Elizabeth is kind, patient, and professional. She made the session stress-free and brought our vision to life.

 

She is people-centered and cares about providing exceptional service. Another plus is the quick turnout time given the amount of work that goes into edits."

Hi I'm Elizabeth

I'm Florida's Busiest Courthouse Wedding Photographer


Although I'm American, I was trained in photography in the UK. I did elite weddings around Europe for a decade before returning to the States.

 

I quickly learned that I wasn't interested in being a part of the wedding industry machine in America and I wanted to recapture the feeling I had working with couples in Europe.

 

After one fateful micro wedding, I was hooked; I found that couples getting married in a more intimate way are my kind of people.

Switch off your busy brain

 

I bring photographic talent paired with over a decade of experience and hundreds of weddings under my belt.

 

With me, you don't have to worry about where you'll take your photos, how you'll pose, or what photos to take.

 

When you hire me, you get killer photos AND someone who lets you switch off your busy brain so you can enjoy the day without wondering if anyone is getting any good photos for you.

How do we spend our 2 hours together?

Most courthouse weddings are complete in 1.5 hrs but I give us 2 just in case.

 

Here's the flow of the day:

  1. We arrive at the courthouse 10 mins before your appointment time
  2. Go inside
  3. Take a number and wait to be called to the window
  4. Do your paperwork
  5. Have your ceremony
  6. Photos outside the courthouse
  7. Photos around the city
