Elopements true to you, captured forever
Worldwide elopement and couples photographer
Authentic To You
A Stress-Free Experience
The Path Less Travelled
Your elopement matters. And so do your memories.
When the world tells you big is best and tradition is the only way, eloping takes courage and determination. You know a traditional wedding isn’t for you – choosing instead to wander on the road less travelled, towards a future for ‘just us two’. This is the beginning of the rest of your lives – a start as you mean to go on, choosing each other above all else. You want, and deserve, to have those most magical moments frozen in time and bottled forever.
But choosing the right photographer is easier said than done. You need someone who will share your bold and uncompromising vision. One that will understand and capture your unique love story for all that it is – not one that will force you into a box you’ve been intent on escaping from. Your elopement is a testament to your love. You deserve it documented in a way that feels authentic to you.
Luckily, you’re in the right place.
Your elopement matters to you, so it matters to us too
Speak a thousand words through beautifully intimate elopement photography.
A vision as bold as yours
From the day you decided to make your love official, you’ve amassed many brave and wonderful ideas, and would love to make them a reality. At Soul Sourced, we are firm believers that anything is possible – especially with the right support from people who understand and believe in your vision. We can introduce you to an extensive list of some of the most stunning elopement destinations in Ireland and around the world. The sky really is the limit. Share your dream, and we can help to breathe life into it for you.
To truly capture the love you and your partner share, you need to feel connected and safe in the hands of your photographer. Without trust and a genuine connection, it can feel like an intrusion – leaving you feeling uncomfortable and a world away from the loved-up bubble you deserve. Your photographer should make time stand still for you – an invisible force empowering you to tune into each other, not the camera lens. That’s why at Soul Sourced, we build real relationships with clients, so you truly feel at ease. It’s from there that we capture your most authentic emotional moments.
Your dream elopement wedding should be everything you dreamed of and more. But they can be tricky to plan – especially if you’re not familiar with the local area or lack contacts that can help you. At Soul Sourced, we believe your day should be about enjoying each other and the love you share – not worrying about the intricacies of the day (isn’t that what eloping is all about?) That’s why we act as a complete guide, supporting you with every last detail of your intimate wedding so you can enjoy your day hassle-free, with eyes for only each other.
Want a wedding as unique as you are? We get it.
Your wedding day should be a day about you as a couple, celebrating what matters most – your love and unparalleled connection. But so often the focus can shift to other things that take away from that. Before you know it, you’ve spent the majority of the day thinking about your guests and how they feel. But what about you? How do you feel? Is this really what you thought it would be? You shouldn’t have to spend the most special day of your life hosting and catering to others. Your love shouldn’t get lost amongst the noise.
At Soul Sourced we understand the challenges couples like you face when it comes to getting the day they really want. We’ve helped co-ordinate weddings in some of Galway’s finest hotels and have seen first hand bride after bride overwhelmed and reduced to tears by the pressure of the day.
Our lead photographer, Kate, knows how it feels to prioritise other people’s visions over your own after doing this herself for her big day. It’s this experience that led her to specialise in elopement and couples photography in Ireland and around the world.
We know there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to capturing the most precious moments of your life on camera, which is why we take the time to build a genuine connection with you as a couple – so we fully understand your love story and capture the magnitude of this most wonderful occasion in a way that feels true to you and your bold vision.
Susies & Ben's Story
Choosing Kate for our wedding photographer was the easiest wedding decision we made!
From first viewing Kate's work, we knew her style was for us! It was so different to the structured wedding photos we had seen so much of before. It was so refreshing to see a more relaxed and creative style. We loved the natural romance that emanated from her photographs!
From our first video call with Kate, our hearts were set. She is such a warm, loving and reassuring person! Kate was amazing amongst the constant changing covid restrictions we had to face right up to the day of the wedding. She really went above and beyond to keep our spirits up in the lead up to the wedding and built the excitement for us!
On the wedding day meeting, Kate for the first time in person was like meeting a well-known friend.
Kate could not do enough for us, she was a wedding coordinator, friend, counsellor and photographer all rolled into one! She was so attentive to all the guests keeping everyone entertained and at ease and she was completely tuned in to us as a couple and what we wanted to achieve for our wedding day. We truly treasure the photographs of our day as they tell a story, our story, and in such a visually truthful way.
Her positivity and pure excitement for both her work and for her couples is what makes her so magic and this comes across in her photography.

What Does It Mean To Elope?
"A liberating yet intimate wedding experience, away from the trappings of
traditional nuptials, that embodies the unique personalities of the happy couple!"
Perceptions Of 'Eloping' Have Moved On...
Elopements today are a far cry from the historical notion of sneaking off in secret to get wed.
Elopement weddings are now a popular way for couples to express themselves and get the wedding they've always dreamed of – one that is authentic to them - not just 'what's expected'.
Elopements are now seen as smaller weddings, sometimes with just a few family and friends, but often with only the couple present. They offer a sense of liberation from the confinements and anxieties that people can associate with planning a large traditional wedding day.
And the best bit? Your elopement options really are endless - there's no 'should do' only 'want to do' with the ability to focus entirely on what feels right for you as a couple. At Soul Sourced, we can help you design your own intimate and stress-free adventure to suit your unique personalities. No request is too big or too small - we're here for you through it all, ensuring every detail of your day is considered, whether you marry in the middle of a tropical jungle or on the edge of the ocean.
