I love being part of milestones in people's lives-the fly on the wall. From surprise engagements to the wedding day and on to documenting a growing family. I love being in the background and capturing moments that can not be recreated. A groom's whisperings in his sweet bride's ear. To this day, I will never what what they end up saying, but I know what I end up capturing once it's whispered. Maybe hysterical laughter or maybe a kind smile with a loving look back at her groom. It's when I find myself smiling behind the camera that I know I'm getting the "good stuff".

I take pride in my business. I truely believe I offer what other's may not be willing to do for their clients. I offer high end wedding photography at a reasonable and affordable price. I pride myself in being flexible to work with various budgets. Be assured not matter what your budget-I work tirelessly to make sure the details and emotion or your day are highlighted. Read less

Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Most defintely!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never more than one wedding a day. Weddings take time and sometimes run behind. It's my job to make sure each couple gets my undivided attention on their day.

I don't "require" a meal, but it's always nice to have one when you've been running at warp speed for 8-9 hours most wedding days. Most days beginning in mid morning and lunch is completely skipped over. By dinner time, it's nice to give the couple and guests a break from the camera and I try to have a little something to eat while the guests are eating. (Most guests frown upon having their picture taken while they are eating)
Do you charge for travel?
Travel is included in all packages and services with 1 hour of drive time.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Turn around for an entire wedding is between 2-3 months. I always like to give an update half way through so the bride knows how far along I am with her images and inbetween that turn around time, I will typically blog or post some sneak peeks.

Abbey was such a great photographer! She took our engagement and wedding pictures. She connected well with the bridal party while we were taking pictures and was very flexible. She took amazing pictures without being noticed during the ceremony. I know a lot of people hate when they focus on the photographer during the ceremony because they are in the way, but Abbey was not like that. I cannot say enough good things about her! We will definitely be calling her again whenever we need a photographer.

From the first moment I spoke with Abbey in 2011 about our wedding I knew that she would make our day truly amazing and capture the most incredible memories for us. She is so sweet and personable; she is funny and great with children. She is small but holds her own in a huge crowd of family members and bridal party. In our area of Riverview, Brandon, Apollo Beach, and other surrounding areas – her name is known, trusted and you always know that you will have the highest quality product. As our family grows we look forward to working with her again and again. Thank you Abbey!

Abbey was incredible! From the very first meeting with her I knew we had made the right choice. She was helpful and informative and worked within our budget. Not to mention the absolutely GORGEOUS pictures she captured. Looking through the pics it was immediately obvious she understood exactly what Ian and I wanted and it was so exciting to see our special day so perfectly preserved in her artistic and beautiful photography!

I had been searching all over for a photographer for our wedding. I wanted a photographer who was not only nice to work with but took amazing photos of course! We met with countless photographers who took great pictures but never really got us until we met Abbey. She had been recommended to us through several friends who had also used her for their weddings. From the moment my fiancé and I met with her we knew that she was the perfect fit. She and her second shooter were awesome to be around on the day of the wedding. Abbey helped keep my nerves calm and snapped away. Several months after the wedding we received our pictures. My fiancé and I were thrilled with the results. I am looking forward to having kids one day so she can photography them. Highly recommend!

Abbey was great to work with. Not only is she a great photographer but she was able to understand the type and style of photos we wanted and was able to capture those images without being noticed by the guests attending the wedding. We wanted both posed and candid shots. Abbey excelled at both.
