VIrginia Wedding & Elopement Photography

your mini adventure awaits

Hola and Bienvenido!!! Hello and Welcome. I bet you have been searching for while on a photographer. Putting off actually committing to one because you know that there are so many to choose from, and so many you 'love'. But do you connect with them?

Knowing that you have someone in your corner that is all for you and wanting to help make your day extra special and great, is something to think about when you are looking for a photographer. 

I can help you with organizing your elopement, help you decide on a location, perfect time, small activities to do, great places to go and so much more. One of the most important aspects of an elopement or wedding is photography. Not much else remains except for those amazing images of an epically, glorious, and fun filled day!

For those who love minimal and are looking for a mini adventure

cheers to you for taking the non-traditional adventure

your love

*Actively choosing  YOU AS A COUPLE over everything and everyone else and truly having that 'just us' wedding experience.

Why Elopement Might Be What You Need!

Because getting married intimate and meaningful. You should be worried about budget, and what others will think about your wedding, or how it looks to others. 

It should fun and stress free. Enjoyable because you put all of YOU into everything. The location at the beach, having a bon fire at sunset with just the two of you, or an extra few.

It should be, and remain, AUTHENTICALLY YOU. An intentional celebration of what you have built, been through, and conquered together. 

Why should you elope?

You are choosing Debbie Elisa because of how real she is when it comes to your elopement and keeping it all things YOU. 

NOT BECAUSE YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR DAY! But because you care more about each other than you care about other people’s expectations. You go against tradition and love to not be 'normal' or do something that has been done a MILLION TIMES already. You have a more unique way of doing things and seeing the world.

If this is you, then we are a match made in heaven!

creating memories

remarkably true and authentic to you

I love photography. I also love editing my own images to exactly how I want them to look. I love the warm glow of the sun. I do my best to make sure that is implemented within my photography in some way. In assisting you with your elopement or intimate wedding, I will make sure to snap these gold hour photos for you.

The style and mood of everything I do is with a little bit of sass, warmth of the sun, and a tad bit of light

Warm, authentic, with a little mood

You are who you are! SHOW IT!

Express your true selves

There's something to be said when it comes to understanding your personality and how you carry yourself. 

Are you someone who loves unique and crazy things?
When everyone else is in high heels, do you follow or do you put on those chuck taylors (Converse) and jeans with a white-T?
Do you follow the trends in makeup or are you a more natural style with minimal makeup and love to keep things light and fun.
If you are the total opposite of  the 'Norm' then why have  your wedding be something that everyone else is having. Elopements can be so much more than just two people. I'll help you plan and get it exactly how you want it to be. Either the two of you or an elopement wedding with a few amazing people to join in on the celebrations. Let's go to the beach! Or a lake and have a grand adventure.

can you stand it!

let's take the next steps and start your adventure today

Let's just speak the truth here. I am not your average 'adventure' photographer. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem going wherever you want to go, but at the same time, I think I like to keep things calmer. So with that, I am a mini adventure style photographer. I love to go on hikes, just not the ones that are on a steady incline. I love the trails and the views the trails and woods have, just not something that is a million miles from the destination point for the elopement or portrait session. 

HIlls, valleys, open fields with mountains in the background, and trails that lead to some amazing views is what I am building myself to do. I know there are others out there like me and definitely will be searching for them. 

I have an intense dream for my photography and I am finally headed in the right direction. ARE YOU IN!!!

psssttt....there's something you should know about me real quick. I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY! Hope that wasn't too loud. I just want you to see, and feel my excitement for your intimate wedding or elopement that you have planned. 

While I don't mind the more traditional style of a wedding, I have recently shifted to more intimate/elopement weddings (either just with the couple or no more than 25 guests). Reason is, I love simplicity. I love the individuals meshing their lives together in the purest of forms that truly embodies who the couple is together. No big fuss weddings, flowers coming our of your ass, and the amount of money spent on venues, food, and other rentals. I just feel like it's more of  movie production and speaks nothing to who you are as a couple. Whereas an intimate elopement wedding does!
