Maryland Wedding Venues

Historic St. Mary’s City is full of history and beautifully located right on the bank of the Potomac River.

Arguably one of the best locations for an elopement.

In the middle of 2021 I had the pleasure of providing elopement photography for one of the sweetest and cutest couples, Michael + Leona, right here in beautiful southern Maryland.

Historic St. Mary’s City has been one of the most beautiful Maryland wedding venues for some time now. They have recently built a pavilion where a tent used to go for outdoor weddings. No more renting tents, it is actually a part of the package and services that is provided. It is one of the best waterfront wedding venues in Maryland. Many open areas, small trails along the fields, and golden hour wedding photos are just to die for! It is definitely a must see when looking for something that has a rustic feel.

HERE are some amazing maryland wedding venues that just might interest you if you are looking for a more barn style wedding, rustic wedding, waterfront wedding in maryland.

Leona reached out to me for a small and quick elopement. Ready with their marriage certificate in hand, they really wanted to celebrate with a portrait session that showcased their love and life together.

The two said a few words to each other to finally seal the deal, and then I guided them around Historic St. Mary’s to see all that this Maryland Waterfront Venue had to offer.

Partly cloudy skies, but the sun did come out to play a few times.

A perfect mini adventure elopement, fit for a queen!

If you are ready to book for your special day, whether it be a just us elopement or a full traditional wedding, or to see a little more of what I do visit the WEDDING EXPERIENCE on my page for more info.

Can’t wait to help your Maryland Wedding dreams come true!

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
