You are not just a 'client' but are now my fam

80's baby | 90's kid

A Virginia based couples photographer shooting weddings and elopements for all people. I take great pride and love and care for what I do because these are memories that you can't get back, unless you see them in a picture. I truly understand the value in having pictures be something that is entirely important to you. I mean, it should be since the pictures are what you will have to remember the day by. 

Hey I'm Debbie

I am at a 50% booked capacity and can take on between 6-10 more weddings or elopements for the year. The most I take on a year is approx 30 in order to provide excellent services to my couples.

Spots are limited 

Currently booking for 2023

2022 is currently completely booked up. However, if you are eloping, I do have weekdays open for a less disruptive wedding day.

current availability

I am over the moon thrilled right now! 

A quick reminder of emails.

Sometimes emails might end up in your spam or promotion folder. So if you don't see a message from me with a 24 hour period, check your spam. I may have landed there, dazed and confused. 

Can't wait to start working together!

Fill me out!

Yes, I do. After we chat on the phone, and I get to learn a bit about you and your vision, I will send over information that also includes a link to my portfolio. There you can look and see the different kinds of weddings and elopements/anniversaries/engagements that I have photographed these past few years. (FYI, some might be lighter as I did go through a light and airy phase thinking I had to be this to get client...but learned there is a whole other set of people that love what I put out with my classy vintage style)

Do you have full galleries for me to see?

I asked this a lot and while I understand and totally get where you are coming from (I am the budget queen), I will not lower my rates. They are firm and fair to the amount of work I put in leading to the event, and the day of the event. 

You are a bit out of my price range. Can you work with my budget?

The firs initial payment is your retainer, not a deposit. A retainer is non-refundable and is 30% of the total price. The remaining balance can be split up into semimonthly payments, and or in one lump sum one (1) day before your event date.

We will discuss this more in detail once you inquire.

What is your retianer and do you have payment plans?



FAQ 01

Ashleigh & Sean

"thought light and airy was my thing but this..this is amazing"

Our engagement session with Debbie and her associate was amazing. I have to say. I caught her when she was a little more light and airy but, damn. I am loving what she did with her new style. And so glad that we have her as our wedding photographer. She put us right at ease from the start. No weird moments, no pauses or breaks in chatting. She had us laughing and smiling from the beginning and kept it all the way through. She is so down to earth and her style is just beautiful. Love her sense of sarcasm. Cannot wait for our wedding next year.

Kerry & Dimitri

"Debbie had everyone soon as she walked in"

Working with Debbie was so amazing. She had everyone as soon as she walked in. Her charm, class, sarcasm, and relaxed vibes were everything I needed with our group of lively people. She literally fit right in. So happy that she was there with us for our big day. She made the long trip from VA to Hershey PA and killed it. My bridesmaids loved her and found her to be refreshing as some of the photographers I spoke too were bland with no character. Debbie made a huge impression and will forever be grateful.

Erin & Chris

"it was all I could have ever dreamed"

My small wedding didn't have much to start. Debbie came in and gave me so many different ideas. From hair/makeup, to florals, to the DJ. She was the calmest one there when I wasn't. Rain was in the forecast and Debbie came prepared with clear umbrellas ready to shoot this wedding. Thankfully the rain held out and it was all I could have ever dreamed  Debbie truly went above my expectation and worked so well with my other vendors. I literally sat back and had an amazing day without a worry.

Linsey & Sham


With a really bad experience with one photographer, I was hesitant to even ask anyone else. I saw Debbie's work and took the chance and contacted her. OMG I am so happy that I did. Right from the start she was energetic, empathetic to my photography story, and willing to tackle this wedding. For our engagement shoot, we went out to Downton Richmond and had a blast. The fun prompts she gave us was awesome, she caught my amazing fun side, she joked and chatted the entire time. Very professional but you can't tell because it's just like hanging out with your closest friends and letting lose. FINALLY I fell relaxed and confident in my photographer. Cannot wait for our wedding in September of 2022.
