What if I told you that you can…

Have a meaningful and heartfelt intimate wedding

Cherish this day by filling it with all the things that make your relationship special

Have your friends and family finally understand why you chose to not have a large traditional wedding  – in other words – have them thinking, “This absolutely fits them, and is perfect”

Document every moment shared and every romantic gesture

I cannot tell you how many times I have heard "we don't need a huge production, some small and intimate is more our thing".

So how bout it, you in?

Your Virginia Wedding Photographer

You might not know exactly how you want your wedding day to look yet, but one thing you do know is that you don’t want it to be a long, exhausting day filled with countless events and people.

You want something more you. Something intimate. Something that screams, “Wow, I can’t believe we just did that!” As your photographer, my main goal is to ensure you get exactly what you want, starting the minute you reach out. Because I’m not just your day-of photographer. I’m your wedding guide, location scout, hype woman, problem solver, creative director, and friend—whatever you need me to be.

I understand the importance of having a day that reflects your unique love story, without the stress and overwhelm of traditional weddings. My role goes beyond just taking photos; I'm here to help you craft a seamless photography timeline, find the perfect locations, and make you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.

I know I’ve done my job if, by the end of the day, you felt relaxed, comfortable, a little bit goofy, confident that we nailed the shots you imagined, and enjoyed every minute of this new core memory. Let’s create an intimate, luxurious wedding experience that’s truly yours.

Travel Within the D.M.V Area

As your Virginia based elopement photographer, all packages cover the travel fees for areas within the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia. I have traveled all over the DMV area and researched the closest to the farthest location, which helped me to determine round trip costs for fuel. If your heart’s set to a destination that’s outside the DMV area locations, then an additional travel fee may apply .

For lodging, I typically we do my best to just return home once our time together has ended. However, over 2.5 hours will result in a one (1) night stay the day of. Further than a 4 hour drive will require a two (2) night stay. Lodging fees are due upon signing your contract and are NON-REFUNDABLE. 

pRICING & pACKAGES

At the core of my photography is a commitment to authentic connections. It's more than a job; it's a passion for ensuring you feel truly cared for throughout our time together. I believe in capturing genuine moments over staged poses, creating an experience filled with laughter, vulnerability, and intentional memories. Your day deserves sincere storytelling, and I'm dedicated to capturing each moment with care and artistry.




“Debbie was something else! Going into our elopement, we didn’t really know what we wanted. We just knew we wanted to get married. She helped us enjoy the planning process and made everything so easy. If you want to fall in love with your photos, have no stress on your special day, be truly present in the moment, and feel comfortable in front of the camera, then Debbie is your person.”
