FINALLY! Damn took you a long time to get there. Well let's jump right into to it shall we! Elopements aren't something that is the same as back in the day (like 1900's back in the day). Nay nay! This new form of elopements has a different meaning as of 2020 (THE COVID BITCH UPRISING). No secret, no running off in the middle of the night. Instead, you are being a rebel, the one that breaks the chain of normalism ( I think I just made up that word). It's you, your partner, an officiant, flowers, and the RINGS OF POWER, and ME. On a mountain, at a lake, walking through the beach water, getting lost in a vineyard. Elopements are pure and true, authentic and real. One of the best ways to start this next journey with FIRE!

Capturing your one of a kind perfect day

SOULFUL PHOTOGRAPHY

Your vision is important. It's not about having grandma be there to celebrate because it would mean so much to her to have a traditional wedding. Nay nay my love! You're gonna shoot yourself in the foot if you do what others want you to do. And for what, for them to be happy. What about you? It's not being selfish. I have heard that so many times. But you are not. You are just doing what feels right for you, your style, your partner, your dream, your vision, and how you want to celebrate this moment in life. If you need some muscle to make this clear, I totally got your back! All that I want is for  you to be happy! For you to have what you want! And for you to have this day truly epically amazing with no regrets or doubts about anything.

Ask yourself, what's more important? My happiness and dream, or something totally different from what I want for the sake of others?? Now is NOT the time to be FOR OTHERS, but for yourself!

Focusing on what truly matters

LET'S CHAT

Outer Banks NC

AMY + CHRISTIAN

Debbie was great. She came from Virginia to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Truly was great. Funny, personable, chatted with everyone and made us all feel so comfortable for pictures. We had the best time despite my fiancé, now husband, left the rings at the beach house. But all was well and things went on as they always did. She did so much for us and I am so grateful for her.

Folly Beach SC

COLT + MEGAN

Debbie helped us out tremendously. We were searching for a photographer during the start of COVID and she came to the rescue. She was great. Video chatted with me and my mother, and had a great relationship with us all. She was fun, quick with edits, and I just love everything about my beach elopement.

COVID, COVID COVID! DAMN COVID!!!! Ruined a lot for so many people. Not that we could have done anything about but, it interfered so much with so many people and our lives were turned upside down. Many couples put their wedding on hold while other did a face mask courthouse or backyard wedding. So what can you do about it?

extra services

$800

$500

Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do. These are your memories, I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough images to remember this time in your lives

How many images do you provide?

After we have actually chatted, I will provide you with a collection that is based on what we talked about that will include any travel fees such as, flight, hotel and car rental (if needed). Gas is calculated at $0.625 per mile.

What are your travel fees?

No. You are who you are. The main areas I might clean up a bit are blemishes or recent scars or scratches and such. Outside of that, no. What I see is what I will provide! I am a natural photographer.

Can you photoshop us?

As much as I know what you are going through with budget, I still need to keep my prices firm. This is my business, not a side gig. I invest in myself to provide an amazing experience. So I expect potential clients to respect this.

I am on a strict budget, can you help me?

No. Every season is wedding season. Regardless of when the wedding/elopement will take place, the amount of work and care I put into your day is still the same.

Do you offer discounts for off season weddings?

FAQ's

I started years ago. However, it wasn't until 2019 that I got back into it and took it to a higher level in 2020 when I became an LLC. Since then I have been fortunate enough to hire business coaches and truly understand the world of photography from some of the TOP photographers in my specific field such as Anni Graham, India Earl, Megan MacPhail, Dawn Charles, and Becca Cannon


How long have you been a photographer?

It can be a scary thing finding people who you can trust to help you on the most important day of your life. Why don't we chat for a bit so I can calm down any nerves, answer questions, and help bring your story to life through pictures.

There's so much to do. Let's not waste any time.
