Through my work, I aim to help couples embrace their uniqueness and tell their love stories in a way that goes beyond the ordinary.

A little bit about me

Hello, It's Nice to Meet You!

I'm Debbie Elisa

Not just a photographer

a visual storyteller for loved-up souls

In 2019 I rekindled my love for photography as a side gig, not thinking I would go full time just a few short years later...during a pandemic and a recession shortly after. But trusting God I continued on and reached goals I set out to conquer.

My philosophy revolves around celebrating the uniqueness of each couple's love story and crafting extraordinary events that go beyond convention, reflecting their true nature and authentic expression. By embracing innovation, storytelling, and attention to detail, I create personalized experiences that leave a lasting impact and cherished memories. With a commitment to connection and collaboration, I aim to inspire couples to freely express themselves and create a celebration that speaks directly to their hearts and souls.

"There are few things that inspire and excite me more than photography!"

My photography journey began with a passion for capturing emotional moments and telling unique love stories. Each couple I work with brings their own energy and personality, making every shoot a new and exhilarating experience. My style combines documentary and fine art, capturing candid moments and crafting emotionally charged images. I pride myself on building personal connections with my clients, understanding their stories and dreams to create a bespoke photography experience. Through my photos, couples can relive their special day, preserving cherished memories for generations to come.

“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”

Step behind my lens and discover how I help couples navigate through their wedding planning journey, infusing a sense of nature and mini adventure into their special day. With a candid and natural approach, I capture the genuine moments of love and joy that unfold, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Whether couples choose to have guests or prefer a more intimate setting with just the two of them, I am here to guide them every step of the way. I understand that every love story is unique, and I tailor my services to bring their vision to life. From four hours of time spent capturing cherished moments to masterful elopements spanning two days of pure love, excitement, and small adventures, I am dedicated to making their dreams a reality.

By choosing an intimate adventure wedding or elopement, couples embark on a journey that goes beyond the traditional. They embrace the freedom to create a personalized experience, weaving their love into every detail. Together, we uncover breathtaking landscapes, hidden gems, and unforgettable moments, resulting in a wedding day that is not only fun, but also deeply meaningful.

When I'm not capturing beautiful moments behind the lens, you'll often find me at the beach, reminiscing about my carefree childhood and embracing the natural beauty of the waves, sand, and salty breeze.

Aside from beach outings, I have a few other hobbies that bring me joy. I love crocheting blankets for loved ones and playing the guitar, finding solace in the melodies. Exploring small hikes with my children and enjoying quality time with my two fur babies, Jack and Peaches, fill my heart with happiness. Family time is a huge part of my life that I don’t sacrifice. It is important to me that those bonds stay strong and grow in love.

Traveling and experiencing the wonders of the world has become a profound passion of mine. I want to immerse myself in different cultures and create cherished memories along the way. This passion and love for nature and people influence how I approach my photography. I want couples to feel relaxed, comfortable, and ready for their mini adventure on their wedding day. I strive to capture their genuine love and connection, producing heartfelt and meaningful photographs.

And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)”
