And so the 



It's about stripping away every ounce of pressure, anxiety, or obligation associated with BIG weddings. An elopement grants a couple the absolute freedom to commit their lives to each other however and wherever they choose. Elopement photography is documenting this unique wedding experience. The simplicity of an elopement allows for your true selves to shine as a couple. Intimate ceremony overlooking a lake, mountain range, hills and valleys, or a remote spot with the waves of a beach being your song!

mystical fantasies

Elopements are...

Let's run away secretly...just the two of us...being free and one with nature and the world

Fueled by equal parts coffee and wine,  I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can't wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come. 

The fun, laughter, nose squints, and cute kisses are what i'm after. The in-between moments when you think i'm not looking. Those are the ones I live for.

The world around us can be so chaotic at times. Like we are the ones sitting by and watching it all happen. But today, today is your time to shine and take back what the world rushes to over look. Weddings are a time when you are on cloud nine. Living your fantasy dream and knowing at the end of the day you will be married to your prince charming, or princess charming! 


Hey there friend

"She did such an amazing job. Our wedding was 10/10/21 and that is a very highly sought after date for a wedding. Even though she had a wedding later in the day, she fit us in earlier when no one else had time. She got there early, walked around and greeted people, and everything turned out amazing. So happy she was there to capture this moment with our closest family and friends"

Debbie was amazing! I needed some time on a quick ceremony"

"We had our intimate elopement in Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis MD. I contacted her through Thumbtack and just had a great time chatting with her. She definitely has a great personality and loved that she is Hispanic (lots to chat about). She was simply giving us a few hours but during that time she provided us with amazing pictures. And got us to slow dance for a little while so we could have a 'first dance' and it was just perfect. Absolutely hire her"

She blew me away

"Debbie reached out to me for my wedding through facebook since we are friends. She offered to take our photos with such a small budget. This was something that was small and intimate until we have our larger wedding in 2022 which she is photographing. She also did just a couples session for Aaron and I at Historic St. Mary's City during golden hour and brought to life my dream session. So much sun and warmth and beauty and I could not be any happier with everything she has done"

Two for one wedding
