Maryland Elopements

Debbie Elisa Photography

Hey you crazy adventurous people! I just wanted to come through and say that I am switchng my photography over to smaller elopements and intimate weddings. The reason for the change? Well, it seems to be that I never get the chance to get to my couple. Just them, by themselves.

It also seems to be that a lot of weddings are closer to the evening time which makes me have to utilize a flash (I am not a fan of how flashes are used for indoors or outdoors but when it’s a late reception, the images are the images)

I am an introvert. Large gatherings are a lot for me to take in visually and socially. I handle myself well with larger weddings and love taking the time out and chat with a few people just to make myself sociable. But I can’t wait for when everyone is eating. Which means I get the chance to eat myself and take time to relax and clear my head, go over what I need to go over, shots to still be taken, and look the my images on my camera in awe of what I am seeing. But it is definitley something that takes a lot out of me.

Elopements can be the total opposite. More relaxed, intimate, focused on the couple and not all the lovely decorations, and and atmosphere of it all. Woods, or a lake side area, even on a back yard can be just as lovely, fun, interactive, and a dream come true for everyone.

So, when you are planning your wedding. Take the time to see if whether or not you want that lavish wedding, or if you want to focus more on family and unity.

WHY we're the perfect match


If you love taking the road less traveled. A trailblazer of sorts. I am a free spirit and don't like conforming to rules particularly. But, i do love when others find their own voice and way on being their own person. So, if that means that you have to burn a few bridges along the way then I guess that's something that has to be done. 

What I love, is that we are who we are. And I am one that loves the ocean and finds peace and serenity at the the water. My clients love peace. Love community with friends and family, and truly lives for the moment.

You are my couple is if you are ready to let loose and have fun and be your true authentic self.

"Over the moon with these pictures"

I may be biased, but I absolutely love Debbie. I have been a part of her photography journey from the start. And I have to say that her evolution for her understanding of photography is amazing. My boyfriend and I wanted a nice beach, golden hour couples' session and of course I snagged Debbie on a weekday. We went to a state park beach and just had a lot of fun. She is so down to earth, so calming but funny, and very easy to talk with. She made my boyfriend feel so relaxed during the entire time. 100% recommend.

"I can't beleive that's us"

I cannot believe that we took these pictures. I mean, I have never seen myself as photogenic at all. And when Debbie asked about any concerns, I laid it all out of everything I didn't like about myself. Her way of talking to me about self-love really stuck with me. The white dress I chose showed all of my goodness and you know what, she made me feel so good, and free that I did not even once worry about anything. She is truly amazing, in all aspects.

"she was amazing for our elopement"

I think Debbie was the perfect hype woman for our elopement. She was there with the smiles, sweet tears, hugs, guidance, and calmness that we needed for the day. Debbie made our elopement so special. Out of all the photographers we spoke with, she just had a realness about her that made me choose her. No sweet talk, pure facts and I loved that she took the time out of her day to text with me for any questions that came up. A true sweetheart!

"the sweetest and most amazing day"

Nothing like having a wedding with close friends and family to celebrate such a special moment. For us, we looked high and low and found Debbie through a referral from another photographer. I am so glad she was available. She was so sweet and funny on our call. Really made us feel so special and had many great suggestions and ideas that we didn't think about. What we got back was nothing short of perfectly captured memories.
