Bold Lovers Elopement: The Road Less Travelled

The Story: This elopement editorial serves as inspiration for bold lovers who want to take the road less travelled. A traditional black and white colour palette gets a major upgrade when paired with an unconventional location, stylish attire and meaningful details.

The Location: Who says weddings need to take place in castles or ballrooms? This elopement shoot took place at the unexpected location of a gas station and convenience store. This is great inspiration for lovers on a budget. However, please do remember to ask for permission from the location owners before carrying out your gas station “I Do’s”.

The Vibe:  Uber cool, edgy, irreverent and budget friendly. Bold lovers who want to celebrate their love without compromising on their unique style. This one is for the non-conformists who want to ditch all the preconceived notions about wedding and elopements and do it their way.

The Details: The edgy editorial images from New York wedding/elopement photographers, Deirdre and Jon depict their signature style of “authentic and truthful photographs of people in love”. Perfect for couples who know who they are and want their wedding to be unapologetically all about them (and totally Gram-worthy). We dig the retro Madonna-inspired hair and make-up paired with a bridal mini, sheer gloves and white fishnets.  


  • This editorial seeks to inspire couples to be the fiercest, most authentic, version of themselves, even on your wedding day. Screw tradition if this is not a reflection of the real you!
  • Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. If you met your loved one at a gas station or convenience store, this is part of your love story and can also be an awesome, wallet-friendly wedding venue with a little bit of clever planning and styling.
  • The soft-top black Camaro were the perfect wedding wheels for this shoot and adds a modern Romeo and Juliet vibe.
