Stress Free Wedding Day Tips

Oh the lovely joys of wedding planning. So do you DIY it or hire someone out? In either case here are a few tips to help you out so your hair stays full and lovely.

-Utilize a wedding timeline: This is not one of those fly by the seat of your pants type events. Make an outline of what’s going to happen and stick to it. 

– Delegate: If someone else is fully capable of doing it and you trust them completely, then loosen the reigns just a tad and let them handle it. 

-Figure out your priorities: Figure out what needs to be done and when, so you’re not running around trying to do things like get a marriage license on the day of your wedding. 

-Think about vendor meals: This is another thing people forget all about. When you’re planning the number of people who are going to be eating, make sure you include a few for vendors.

-Establish “No Wedding Talk” Time ASAP: Wedding planning is stressful and can take over your entire life and relationship. Make sure you have some sacred time to just be with your love and enjoy life.

-Prep your emergency bag: Your wedding is going to be an extremely long day. You may need to pack a few supplies to help you get through it all. I’m talking about: stain remover, a minature sewing kit, double sided tape, safety pins, bobby pins and other items to touch up your makeup later in the evening.

– Prepare tip envelopes for vendors: It’s not uncommon to tip the vendors at your wedding. My personal suggestion is to prep tip envelopes and give them to someone you trust, so they can make sure your vendors get them on the big day.

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.
