If you review the work of many Bali wedding photographers you will quickly find yourself amid a stream of similar-looking standard, average photography that look so yesteryear.

Most couples understand that for an elopement in Bali it is not necessary to rely on the services of a wedding planner. In fact, one could argue that paying for the services of a planner is actually a waste of money. Because there is not that much that needs to be planned and coordinated.
That has prompted Jo Yu to offer Bali elopement packages. Yes, you read correctly from Jo you can get complete Bali elopement packages that already include the venue, décor, and a ceremony held by a ministrant.
