Meridian Hill Park Engagement

Meridian Hill Park Engagement | D.C. Engagement at Meridian Hill Park

Jenelle + Mike’s Engagement at Meridian Park D.C.

Jenelle & Mike’s engagement at Meridian Hill Park was an amazing and fun session. The couple met at a bar in Los Angeles California. There with some friends, Jenelle and Mike started up a conversation and soon found themselves in a long distance relationship. Eager to stay together, Jenelle moved to the east coast to the D.C. area and the rest was history.

You could not believe the amazing excitement I felt when they reached out to me for their wedding. Beyond excited I quickly got on the phone with them and started making arrangements and finding locations for their engagement session. Soon, we were at Meridian Hill Park walking around for some amazing pictures.

Being that it was done is February of 2022, the trees and other foliage were not in bloom. Which is perfectly fine. As a photographer it is my job to make sure that your images are amazing no matter where we go. After walking around, I found some amazing trees in a walkway with bushes and a few columns. And, there you go. A perfect spot for amazing pictures for an engagement session and save the date cards.

I know you will enjoy these images as much as I had fun taking them. Jenelle and Mike made the session extra calming and relaxing with their fun sense of humor, and willingness to expose their personality so that they shine extra bright.

It truly was an amazing day! Congratulations to you both.

I know you would love to get together for an engagement session, or for your wedding. The best way to do so is to simply send me a quick message so we can start chatting and planning together.

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
