Engagement at Quiet Waters Park

September 18, 2021

Maryland Engagement Photographer

Alexandra (Alex) and Jason are two of the sweetest people on this planet. I saw Alex post about a need for wedding photography due to their photographer cancelling on them last minute. I totally reached out and soon after, they booked with me. One of the freebies I offer is a complimentary engagement session within all of my wedding and elopement packages. Now, they did already have their engagement photos but I convinced them to allow me some time so that I can introduce them to the #debbieelisatribe

So I went to work. Met up with the couple at Quiet Waters Park for a beautiful Golden Hour Glow session. Let me tell you!!!! It was one of the hardest, and best moments. This park is almost always full of other photographers. So in the background I was fighting with families and people walking around getting in my shots. Thankfully, I had us far enough away that I could edit them out with ease.

Their wedding is October 30th of 2021 and I am so excited to get them up and going for their blog review.

As stated, this park is highly attractable with photographers. I myself have have the pleasure of providing couples, intimate weddings and elopement photography for may individuals. The park has a gorgeous gazebo, a lovey water fountain, gardens, many small fields and even a dog park. If you are feeling up for a walk, this would be a great place to just relax and see some gorgeous foliage. Spring time is a hot zone, but I personally love autumn colors. The sun hits the reds and oranges and creates a fiery magical image. Something that has been my aesthetic for some time now.

Check out the images and if you are interested, reach out to me to schedule your own couples sessions. Reach me at to schedule your free consultation. Or if you’d like to see my work you can view everything HERE

Hi, I'm Debbie

A self proclaimed badass photographer

No elegant or amazing story to tell here. My life consisted of growing up in the military from the age of 2. Settling in North Carolina, and marrying a Navy Corpsman. Three kids later, and two masters degrees into a career in Special Education and Applied Behavior Analysis, I decided that it was finally time to pursue a lifelong dream of mine, photography.

I started out as wanting to become a Marine Biologist/Oceanographer, and working for National Geographic, swimming with the sharks! Choices made led me down a different path and led me to where I am today. Sitting here, at the computer, writing a mini novel about my life to you.

I started my business in 2019 realizing as my oldest son graduated high school that I missed photography, I missed the interaction I could have with others, and the different lives I was able to be a part of. So, I did as allo beginner photographers did. I dusted off my only old camera, and started using my friends and family as models. Charge next to nothing for sessions, and was able to purchase mentoring sessions, business courses, posing class, 1:1 workshops, and I have learned so much and have grown tremendously within my skill and knowledge. With the help of amazing photography mentors such as Katelyn James, Alina Thomas, Joy Michelle, Megan MacPhail, India Earl, Anni Graham, Jai Long, Maddie Mae (Adventure Instead), and many more, I have been able to create an experience for my couples that is comfortable, relaxed, and crafted specifically to their style and personality
