Abby was an absolute dream! From our first meeting to our album debut, she was with us every step of the way with a beautiful smile on her face and an infectious laugh. We prioritized not only the final product but also having fun along the way. Abby delivered on every count.

Of course, her product was spectacular. We scheduled both an engagement shoot as well as coverage of our combined ceremony and reception. Her pictures were drop dead gorgeous. Make sure to check out her Instagram because it shows just how incredibly talented she is. She worked seamlessly with our other vendors. Fully prepped on wedding day, she efficiently captured important shots with family and friends. And to top it all off, she's just cool to hang out with. The sort of person you want to meet after for dinner and drinks.

We were told at the beginning of our vendor shopping that photos will be the only tangible item you take from your wedding. It's true. The day will be over before you know it. However, if you entrust the documentation of your day to Abby, you won't regret it.

Abby Jiu's incredible photographic abilities are immediately apparent when viewing her website. Her professionalism was apparent from the moment we contacted her. Her contracts, fees, and personalization of services is all in writing up-front. The only unforeseen surprise - and it was a pleasant one - was that we had no idea about the amount of extra time and effort Abby puts into her work.

Abby Jiu's photography is beautiful. She made us shine in each of our photographs. Part of the reason for this is because she is such a joy to be around. It is hard not to smile when someone as friendly, patient, and hardworking as Abby is standing in front of you helping you to look your best.

My wife and I never needed to look around to find the photographer. Either Abby or her assistant were by our side at all the most important moments. Somehow, they also caught other significant moments that we weren't even aware were happening. They knew where to be, where to look, and exactly what to focus on at all the key moments; an ability that only comes from experience and keen intelligence.

It was a pleasure to work with Abby. I highly recommend her in all categories.

I was already in love with all of Abby's work, so when our wedding planner told us she was available for our wedding we were thrilled!! We didn't feel the need to do any meetings with her ahead of time, or give her a shot list because we really wanted her to just do her thing! Abby was simply perfect! She has such a great personality and helped keep it fun when I was getting nervous by having me look up a video she knew I would love! I was almost in tears I was laughing so hard and was able to relax and enjoy the process instead of being so nervous. Abby is very professional, yet she was still able to make us feel so comfortable. She genuinely captured all of our special moments. She was so patient with us, and worked through our guests as they hugged and congratulated us, she captured it all. She just floated around magically capturing every special moment! Abby's assistant helped out tremendously with our 4 year old daughter and was still able to capture such lovely photos. We received a preview of our gallery and pictures within days. Abby captured the day in a way only she could, she told our story through her pictures in such a natural and beautiful way.

Abby was wonderful to work with! She is very organized and kept us all on schedule the entire day (which is an impressive feat because I'm always late for everything). You can tell Abby has photographed a lot of weddings, because she was very professional and always knew exactly what to do. I felt like she really cared about us and our special day, since she focused on so many details and tried so hard to get all the shots I wanted. We got along so great with Abby and we felt so comfortable with her as our photographer. You could tell everyone was relaxed and having fun when taking pictures!

Not only did Abby photograph our wedding, but she took engagement shots too. I love how all our pictures turned out! It's like she has a magical camera that makes everyone and everything so beautiful! If you hire Abby, you will NOT be disappointed!

When I first met Abby, I knew right away I wanted her to photograph my wedding day! She was so laid back and easy to talk to. Her portfolio was breathtaking, with such rich colors and amazing lighting captured in each of her photos. Our engagement session, which was included in our wedding package gave us the opportunity to get to know Abby and allowed us to get comfortable in front of the camera. Our photos turned out beautiful and I knew that our wedding photos would be just as wonderful. Abby was great to work with on our wedding day, she was so flexible and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Our photos were stunning! I can't say Thank You to Abby enough, she captured the most perfect memories for my husband and I.

Abby photographed both my engagement session and my wedding and did a fantastic job. We looked at the pictures on her website and loved them. Her pictures were a good mix of casual, posed, and unique shots and they all had that "pretty" look. Further, unlike many in the DC area, she uses primarily film rather than digital cameras. She will take less photos than but her frames are well thought out and deliberate.

Another aspect we loved is Abby's flexibility - she was willing to listen to our ideas and patiently answered all the questions we had about her work. This was important to us as we interviewed over ten photographers and found some to have a "don't question me about my work" attitude. Especially if this is your first (and hopefully only) wedding, you probably will have a ton of questions!

We highly recommend doing the optional engagement session with Abby. She knew we hadn't ever worked with a professional photographer before and so gave us a lot of advice for us on preparing for the engagement shoot. It was a great dry run for the wedding - helping us understand what to expect and making us more comfortable with her and in front of the camera.

Our wedding day was also perfect. Abby came on time, prepared, and gave us just the right amount of direction. Needless to say, everyone loved our wedding photos and many commented that ours were the best they've seen!

It was pleasure to work with Abby and Helen, her assistant that day, during our wedding and reception. We were impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail. During our first meeting, Abby even presented us with a little travel-sized folding picture frame with a black and white photo of our venue! Abby's vendor website was very easy to use in terms of setting up and finalizing the contract, as well as completing the questionnaires. Abby was also receptive to the list of family/bridal party photos that we wanted to occur and seamlessly worked them into the photos that she wanted of us. During the reception, it felt like she and Helen were everywhere - our guests even commented about this later - and our pictures were evidence of this. They caught some truly great moments. At the very end of the evening, she gave us another little picture frame with two black and white photos of us taken that very day! It was nice to have even those pictures so quickly because the day seemed to fly by (like we were told it would) and our memories were already fuzzy - we took it with us on our honeymoon too! Thanks, Abby! We really appreciate it!
