When I started looking for a wedding photographer I was honestly clueless. I stumbled across Abby on Instagram and was immediately hooked. Her photos look like they’re straight out of a wedding or elopement magazine. She embraces everything the desert has to offer and just runs with it. Not one of her couples looks the slightest bit forced or nervous. And let me tell you, after meeting Abby I totally understand why. From the moment she started shooting it was like being with one of your oldest friends who just happens to have a camera.
I didn’t have too many concerns while looking for a photographer, because I didn’t have to look far. Abby was local, COMMUNICATIVE as can be, and her prices were extremely reasonable. Spending a little more on photography was something I was willing to do from the get go but I never felt like I was “spending more” with her services. She so graciously included an engagement session in our package and was extremely helpful in choosing how many hours/what we should go with as far as planning.
My husband and I both agree that choosing Abby as our wedding photographer was probably the best decision next to marrying each other. Her photography is incredible. She made absolute magic out of two of the most awkward human beings. I spend hours at a time revisiting our photos and laughing (and crying) about the memories in that very moment because she captured them so well. She was so sweet and flexible dealing with our local wildfire closures, Covid restrictions, and my crazy family on wedding day. She was always game to drive or hike wherever, encouraged us to take a walk on the wild side (in the Salt River) and even chauffeured us from our house (minor pit stop between ceremony and reception) and was an absolute DOLL about everything. My only regret was that I couldn’t spend more time with her at our wedding because the gal WORKED her tail off.
My advice for those who may be considering Abby as their wedding photographer is stop looking now. Hurry up and give her a call, send her a message, plan your wedding around her schedule if you must. She is the absolute BEST there is in AZ.
"We picked Abby because she did an amazing job capturing our engagement photos and knew we wanted her to capture our wedding. We loved her editing style and how easy it was to communicate with her throughout the planning process. When looking for a photographer, we wanted someone who was easy to communicate with and detailed oriented. She was super sweet when answering my millions of questions. We received our gallery so quickly and I was so happy to get some preview photos just a few days after the wedding! I loved that Abby checked in throughout the night to make sure we got all the photos that wanted around the venue. She timed everything perfectly so that we were able to get our individual and bridal party photos finished before the ceremony started. I have and will continue to recommend her to all my friends and family!"
"We are so glad we chose Abby to be our wedding photographer! She was a pleasure to work with, and it was a relief to have her helping run things on our wedding day because she was so well prepared and professional. She did a great job of coordinating with our other vendors and our videographer. The final gallery of photos was better than I ever could have imagined! We had so many beautiful photos to choose from. Thank you, Abby!"
"Wow wow wow. We were so blown away by Abby. Photography was incredibly important to us. Kate’s entire childhood was photographed and she really values the candid moments and the stories behind the images. Abby seemed to get that. Her style was so real and told a story rather than a bunch of awkward poses. Matt didn’t have as much experience being in front of a camera but Abby made everything feel natural and SO DANG FUN. She was such an amazing fit for us. We got along so well from the get-go and would consider her a friend! Could not recommend anyone so highly."
"You did such an amazing job at capturing all the feels and going through them is like reliving that day every time! I cried like way more than a normal person. There was just so much emotion in your pictures! I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for us, from day one you have gone above and beyond! Im so happy we found you! You are so good at what you do! I remember always being so nervous to pick a photographer for my wedding because I wanted my pictures to be perfect! And you have given me exactly what I wanted! Actually better than I wanted! You are a dream Abby! Thank you one million times! I can’t wait to see all the work you do in your future! Seriously love you!"
"I can’t say enough good things about Abby! I was really looking for a photographer that would bring myself and my husband out of our shells and make us feel comfortable since we can be a bit camera shy and Abby 100% did that! I wanted to avoid the cliche stiff poses; I was looking for movement and authentic emotions and the prompts Abby gave us allowed us to achieve that! She got us laughing and feeling confident and that really showed in the photos she took! I wanted our engagement and wedding photos to showcase our love and happiness while also showcasing the beauty of our surroundings and Abby nailed it. Our engagement photos in the Phoenix desert are stunning as well as the wedding photos overlooking the ocean in San Diego. I so appreciate her willingness to work with us in regards to traveling out state for the wedding! Abby was so easy to work with and very personable and friendly! So many of my wedding guests commented on how much they loved her! Finding the perfect wedding photographer was at the top of my list and she captured our day perfectly. Her photos tell the story of our special day in such an authentic and wholesome way allowing me to feel the emotions again and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you Abby for being the best photographer I could have asked for!!"
"Abby was amazing! She did our engagement photos and wedding photos. She was so accommodating and made the whole process so easy. She is an absolute JOY and has such an upbeat and positive personality that made everything feel so natural. We could not be more happy with our photos and the work she did. Perfectly captured our personalities and our relationship. What separates her from other photographers is how hard she works to make each photo shoot personal. All of her work is so intimate and personal to that couple. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer and for photos that truly tell your story for a lifetime ❤️❤️"
