Katelyn and John’s wedding day was a long time coming! They complimented each other greatly as katelyn suffered from anxiety, and John was her rock to keep her calm and to get her through life’s struggles. After rescheduling their wedding once already, they got the go ahead to move forward and selected Kalero Vineyard as the venue for their rustic vineyard wedding. Complete with the rolling hills and valleys of Shenandoah.

The wedding day started with Katelyn and her maids upstairs of their AirBnb. If this place had a name, I would list it. It was amazing. So many things to see and do. From hanging out by the fire pit, to going on nature trails. The overlook is amazing and it provides you a peak at the amazing wonders of the Shenandoah mountains.

Hair and makeup wrapped up, and the first looks started. Soon it was off to the vineyard to get married.

The rest of the day went off without a hitch. The purest form of love that I have ever seen in a long time.

Despite a few overcast clouds, they kissed and and celebrated every step of the way down the aisle. Gorgeous backlit golden hour photos commence and then, it was time to party!

Having your wedding at Kalero Vineyard would be a perfect option if you are looking for a rustic, mountain theme. Dress it up, or dress it down. Either way you decorate it, it will be perfectly unique and special to you.

Let me capture this moment for you one still moment at a time.

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.
