Wedding at Bowling Brook Mansion

October 23, 2022

Autumn and Nick celebrated their forever with family and friends in a beautiful wedding at Bowling Brook Mansion. With the golden glow of the sunset, the couple celebrated in a big way complete with their Harley and dancing the night away.

The bride was on sight with her ladies in the bridal suite, while the guys were pushed away to the groom’s quarters to drink and have some fun before pictures. And of course showing off their motorcycles! Dad walked autumn down the aisle in a beautiful fit and flare dress. Her ladies wore a lovely shade of green while the fellas wore a matching color of brown for a fall colored filled wedding.

Inside the guests await with lots of love and laughter. The couple cut their cake, tossed their bouquet and danced the night away for hours with their loved ones. One of the the best parts of the night were the speeches. Of course the best man didn’t stay up for too long, but the maid of honor, the sister of the bride, took her time and laid out all the dirty laundry between the two of them and really put on a show.

Bowling Brook Mansion was the perfect spot for Autumn and Nick’s wedding and suited their country lifestyle completely.

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
