Hey there! A couple of adorkable elopement wedding photographers here! I am so excited you are thinking about an elopement for your wedding. Let me tell you, you are in the right place! Raul and I love elopements and we wish we had done one for our wedding. I have been a wedding photographer for the past 7 years and for the past two Raul and I have been capturing elopements, so you are in good hands. 

Besides being professional third wheels we love spending our time traveling, watching movies, and loving on our two dogs. An extremely emotional and sneaky border collie named Severus Snape and a dachshund mama’s boy named Charles Xavier. 

My husband and I have always had a deep attraction to the natural beauty of life. That’s why, as your photographers, we focus on truly seeing you and showing the authentic beauty of your love.

We can’t wait to hear your story!

-Des & Raul

Since they decided not to have a send off we had some fun with smoke bombs! – The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve

Q: What’s your title/position in your business? 

A: Desiree & Raul Henderson, Owners

Q: What’s a fun fact about yourself?

A: It takes me hours to finish a latte… I just don’t want it to end. My husband knows almost every single Drake song.

Q: Tell us about your favorite elopement!

A: My favorite anything is usually the most recent one and that would be Rachael & Vinny’s! These two are sunshine in a couple! Due to 2020 restrictions they decided to proceed with their wedding, but turned it into an elopement with close friends and family. This intimate wedding was full of incredibly sweet authentic moments. I think I cried like three times! One of the beautiful things Rachael and Vinny did was surprise their parents with dances. All in all this was truly lovey event to witness and capture. Truly an honor.

“A Dream Team!”

Des and Raul are a DREAM to work with. Their photos are gorgeous and they are just truly wonderful people! We did two engagement shoots with them – one picnic-casual session and a city-chic session in DC. Both sessions captured me and my fiance perfectly!

And our wedding photos. Y’all. I CANNOT. They are more beautiful than I could ever have dreamed. Des made sure we got our group shots quick so it did not feel we were spending tons of time away from the party after our ceremony. She also took me to do a couple fun bridal portraits while everyone else was finishing dinner and I honestly loved just taking those few private minutes to soak everything in. We were not planning on doing a grand exit, but Des just brought these smoke bombs for us to do some fun night shots before we left the party. Everyone who has seen those photos gushes about how amazing they are.

The only downside was how sad I was when everything was over because I know I will miss working with Des and Raul. Please do yourselves a favor and hire Ezer for any photography needs – you will not regret it!
