"I cannot imagine my wedding day without abbi!"
My husband and I have been married for almost two months now and everyday I look back and think I can't imagine my wedding day without Abbi! In all the craziness of planning and getting ready, she was the calm / fun voice I needed. We had an absolute blast shooting with her, and it really made all the difference in the photos!
Abbi has such a great eye for scenic backdrops, we switched our ceremony location the morning of our big day to the spot she found. We wanted a destination wedding to remember on the cliffside in Big Sur, and she nailed it! She did as much research on the area as I did, finding epic spots for the ceremony and couples photos, which was beyond helpful and made for such a memorable day.
WE LOVE ABBI! :-D

"if you want photos that look out of a movie and a photographer that is friend goals, I would call Abbi in a heartbeat."
Do yourself a favor and book Abbi now. I don't even know where to begin, she is absolutely incredible. I found Abbi through a friend she shot some commercial work for, and instantly fell in love with the tone and feel of all of Abbi's images.
We first did our engagement shoots with Abbi, and when I told her I had a close friend who was a photographer and I didn't think I need to do those with her, she told me that she preferred always doing an engagement shoot so she doesn't show up to our wedding day not knowing us, and thank goodness she did. The engagement pictures are straight out of a movie, UNREAL. We are not people who take many selfies or love attention in front of a camera, and to think she was able to get those pictures after just an hour with us is amazing. So happy she set me straight.
THEN OUR WEDDING! Abbi and her assistant Cam made all of us so comfortable, she created the most detailed timeline, and made the entire day go so smoothly. Even when we had a few things go wrong, Abbi pulled us away and made sure we enjoyed ourselves and didnt get too involved. Also, all of the groomsmen made comments to me about how cool Cam was when taking their own shots, which was so nice to hear.
Anyways, if you want photos that look out of a movie and a photographer that is friend goals, I would call Abbi in a heartbeat.

"you will be so happy..."
Abbi has taken our engagement photos and our wedding photos. She is a DREAM to work with!!! She made us feel so comfortable and laugh so our photos came out genuine. Even when we were taking the pics, we thought maybe they would be a little awkward but NOT even a little bit! She is the only photographer you should hire to capture every memorable event in your life! You will be so happy!! I am sharing only a few photos that she captured but there are sooo many more. We had a hard time choosing just a few to frame because we wanted to frame them all! Thank you so much abbi for all of our beautiful photos and being such a great addition to our most important events!

"exceeded all our expectations..."
We are so grateful that Abbi was a part of our wedding journey and we could not have imagined the day without her! She did an amazing job capturing the sheer magic and bliss that surrounded us on that day.
When we started the wedding planning process, we wanted to hire a photographer who focused on capturing the real, raw, behind-the-scene moments. We found Abbi via Instagram; we were amazed by her portfolio of work and inspired by her approach and mission as a photographer. She focuses on capturing the most special moments in a unique and moving way, which is no easy task, but she executes flawlessly!
We had an intimate wedding with 8 guests, so we truly felt the energy and presence of everyone in attendance - including our vendors. Abbi brought such warmth, kindness, and authenticity, which was appreciated by everyone. Abbi provided direction while allowing us to remain present, enjoy the moment, and have a blast! As we look through the photos from our wedding day, we are so beyond happy we chose Abbi. Her work exceeded all our expectations!!

"I truly cannot have imagined having anyone else by my side"
I honestly cannot say enough about how wonderful and talented Abbi is. I originally met her when I was working for a bridal designer and we collaborated on photoshoots together. She was so incredibly professional, and went above and beyond to get the perfect shots. When it came time to pick a photographer for my wedding, I knew I had to hire her. What I didn't know was just how much she would exceed my expectations (which were already really high)!! She shot our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and both turned out so beautiful, I still have people asking me about them! My husband also hates taking photos, but admitted that Abbi made the whole process so easy and actually fun! On our wedding day, we had multiple venues, a tight timeline, and lots of people (between family and our wedding party) that needed to be in photos. She was organized, stuck to the timeline, and took all of our requested photos while still maintaining a sense of calm and fun. I truly cannot have imagined having anyone else by my side throughout the entire day, and that was reflected in the final images. I got so many compliments on my photos, and everyone was asking me who my photographer was. It was hard to narrow down the ones I wanted to print for framing and photo books because all of them were so amazing! I would highly recommend Abbi to any bride!!

"she was so much fun on the dance floor while capturing every moment"
Oh where do I begin. Abbi quickly became a close friend throughout our engagement/wedding process. She and I still chat weekly and have established a friendship far beyond wedding photography. I absolutely adore her and cannot think of ANYONE better suited for the job. She was my hype woman, making me feel comfortable while full on making out with my husband in front of her - ha! We were not exactly comfortable or used to being in front of the camera, but as soon as we started she made the whole thing fun and a breeze. She stuck to the schedule, was able to get our LARGE, rowdy group to focus and get "the" shot, and she was so much fun on the dance floor while simultaneously capturing every single moment. She also went above and beyond by helping me create our day-of timeline when my planner was falling behind. I cannot recommend Abbi enough!!

"Wish we could redo our wedding so she could be the photographer"
Abbi is absolutely phenomenal! The best decision you could make is to hire her. You will NOT regret it! Not only are her pictures magical, but she's a wonderful person to be around and makes you feel totally comfortable. There aren't enough exclamation points I could use to describe how amazing our family photo shoot came out and how happy we are. Wish we could redo our wedding so she could be the photographer! Thank you Abbi!!!

"easy and stress free"
Abbi has been taking photos for our family for 3 years now and she is beyond incredible. Not only is she the sweetest person you'll ever meet, she is so talented and has a vision of what will look great. She has the magic touch and the vibe of her images are exactly what we wanted. Each of her sessions hang proudly in our home and I often look at the photos fondly. Shooting with Abbi is easy and stress free - by the time it's finished you'll have had so much fun you won't want the day to end. Trust me, you will never regret hiring her!! We love her and cant imagine working with anyone else. She will make you feel comfortable whilst capturing memories that will last a lifetime.

"no one I trust more"
Literally the only person I have photograph our most important memories! Abbi is GOLD. She has photographed our home shoot & pregnancy announcement, maternity photos, birth, and newborn lifestyle photos. No one I trust more and she makes you feel EXTREMELY comfortable in front of her camera. Heck, I had her in the room when I gave birth 😜

"truly cared about what I wanted..."
Abbi is seriously the best! Hear me out, picking a wedding photographer is probably one of the most (if not the most) important vendors of wedding planning. I spoke with over a dozen photographers as I am super picky. The moment I spoke to Abbi I knew she was the perfect fit to capture our day. Not only did I love Abbi's style and gift of capturing the most beautiful candid photos but she was so easy going and truly cared about what we wanted. She made everybody in the wedding party feel super comfortable and found ways to make people laugh and not feel awkward with a camera in your face. We weren't able to do our engagement photos with Abbi bc we were planning our wedding long distance, but and she met us at our venue a month before and snapped some photos of us there for fun. She ended up editing those and sending them over the next day (so sweet) and they are some of my favorite photos of us outside of our wedding day. We now have a beautiful album she created for us to relive the day over and over again. I couldn't be happier with our choice of wedding photographer! Thanks for everything Abbi <3

ABBI THE PHOTOS ARE SO SO SO AMAZING! JEFF AND I WATCHED THE SLIDESHOW TOGETHER THIS MORNING - SUCH A WONDERFUL WAY TO START OUR WEEK, ESPECIALLY IN THIS WEIRD TIME. THANK YOU FOR CREATING SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL FOR US. I SENT THESE TO MY PARENTS AND I JUST HAVE TO SHARE MY DAD'S COMMENT WITH YOU. HE SAID: "WHEN COVID-19 CONFINEMENT HAS YOU AT ODDS WITH EACH OTHER, TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND LOOK BACK ON THESE MOMENTS TO REFILL YOUR JOY!" I HAVE NO CLUE HOW WE ARE GOING TO CHOOSE JUST ONE FOR THE SAVE-THE-DATES!!
