NYC Elopement Photographer

Kristy May photographs elopements and weddings in New York City. Whether it is two people at Manhattan City Hall Marriage Bureau or 20 in Central Park she has the experience to capture your day and navigate around the bureaucracy or just traffic in the city! She's photographed weddings in DUMBO, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Top of the Rock, Governor's Island, in the West Village and many private hotels and restaurants.

This extensive gallery highlights my favorite moments across many elopements and intimate weddings.

Elopement Tips

Black & White

I started photographing in black and white with my first camera and I still love making them. While all of my images are shot in color, I always include a selection of custom black and white images with each wedding gallery.


Clients have been kind enough to leave me reviews on Wedding Wire, The Knot, Google and here.


Elopement photography begins at $950. Full pricing available on request.
