And so the 






Looking for someone to capture that special day, but not having the traditional style of wedding...big church, large reception, a million maids and men at your side? 

I provide intimate wedding and elopement photography for couples who are looking to scale things down and keep it more family and friends oriented. Something small, but still jammed packed with fun and craziness that speaks to who you are as a couple. Grab your close friends and family members, ready the beer and wine, get the fire pits going and let's have an adventure!

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.

You will find me waiting in sweat pants and a sweater or long sleeve shirt, listening to punk rock, and probably cussing a ton! It's who I am so if  you're down with someone real, then let's do this thing. 

Maryland Intimate wedding and portrait PHOTOGRAPHer

Hey there friend

Get in touch

" Debbie along with her second photographer, Jessica, did such an amazing job on our wedding pictures. They were both full of energy, very professional, but also easy going and blended right in with our group of family and friends. So much attention to detail, willing to go above and beyond my expectations. The communication with Debbie was better than I could have asked for. She kept in great contact. Highly recommend!

An amazing special day

"I am so in love with your pictures from Debbie. We had them done previously and were really disappointed with how they came out. I reached out to my local military families and there were so many that referred Debbie. So happy we chose her. She made us so comfortable and relaxed. Really great with our little girls. And my husband even loved the session, and he rarely likes anything with pictures. She is very personable and has a great sense or humor. Highly recommend Debbie"

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"
