I specialize in photojournalistic Wedding Photography, and Family Lifestyle Portraiture. I have a storytelling approach, so your photos will convey the mood and emotions of the unique moments that make up your day.

A wedding photographer only has a split second to capture the essence of a fleeting moment, the glimmer of a look, a laugh, or a tear shed. An effective photographer must have the skill, experience, passion and eye to rise to that demand.

Rest assured you can depend on me to capture the spirit of your day, and relay your stories powerfully and elegantly.

I work in the Boston area, and all over New England, including Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. Contact me to reserve your wedding date or to make an appointment to meet with me personally. Read less

Cynthia was absolutely wonderful to work with on our wedding day! She was the perfect person for us, as she blended in with everyone and we didn't even know she was there! Cynthia was not at all intrusive with her camera and that is exactly what we wanted for our day! I chose her after viewing her website and photos and just fell in love with the presentation of her photos. We met and knew right away that she was the one for us! Cynthia is a fantastic photographer with a wonderful personality that makes everyone feel at ease at all times!

Cynthia was wonderful to deal with! Her quiet, professional manner made everyone feel at ease. My daughter loved how easy she was to work with. All our requests for photographs of different friends and relatives were taken care of. I remember thinking to myself as we went through the hundreds of pictures that she had taken, that she quietly moved around all evening capturing all the moments that we will want to look at over and over, and I never even realized she was there! I've been to many weddings where the photographer was in your face - Cynthia was not. Her pictures are everything my husband and I, my daughter and son could have hoped for and more - she captured every moment of their wedding - their friends, our friends, family, pictures in color and black and white. So many pictures, so many choices!! I look forward to using her again. I would recommend Cynthia without reservation.

I would absolutely recommend Cynthia Abbott Photography. Cynthia photographed our wedding last fall, and her work is beautiful, natural, and fun. We met Cynthia for our engagement session, which was great, because we were able to get comfortable with her before our wedding day, and having our pictures taken (something my husband hates!) She was able to get us to relax, which resulted in much more natural pictures than I have every had before. On the day of our wedding, Cynthia was so organized and professional. She seemed to have everything covered, and was so calm about last minute adjustments that I knew we were going to capture the wedding just like I wanted. She caught all the big moments, but, more than that, was able to catch the little details I didn't even realize were happening, and wouldn't have thought to ask for. The day flew by so fast, I am so thankful that Cynthia was there to capture it all as beautifully as it actually was. She caught moments I missed myself, like my flower girl getting her hair fixed by my mother-in-law, and my father-in-law showing my ring bearer how to hold the ring pillow. I couldn't be more grateful for her wonderful work.

My husband and I used Cynthia Abbott for our wedding last September and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision! Right from the start, she was both outgoing and professional. We contacted her through email as we heard about her through a family friend, and she responded to us within 24 hours. We spoke over the phone and she went through every detail with us (from all of her pricing options, to her style, to suggestions specific to our wedding). This was even before we had signed on with her! She wanted to get to know us as best as she could to make sure we would all be a good fit. Right away I knew she was the one for our wedding.

Cynthia suggested we meet a few months before the wedding for an engagement photo session (included in the package we bought). She said it was a great way to get to know her and to get used to and be comfortable in front of the camera. It went great! Not only was Cynthia laid back but she had great suggestions on different pictures and had us laughing and having fun at the end (which of course turned out to be the best pictures!) Within a few weeks we had a link to all of the pictures and were able to use one of them in our local paper for our wedding announcement.

The day of the wedding itself was perfect and couldn’t have gone more smoothly. To be honest I didn’t realize Cynthia was even there! She was able to get the perfect combination of pictures from before the wedding, to during the ceremony, to the reception. She was so flexible and easy to work with and got along with everyone (our parents loved her!) She ended up taking over 800 pictures which I couldn’t believe. When she sent the link to us after she did all of the editing it was like I was able to relive our perfect day all over again. I would 100% recommend Cynthia as a photographer for your wedding. She not only has a wonderful talent but she is also a great person to know and work with.

Cynthia was amazing. Not only were her photos great, but she was great. On a day that was filled with craziness, Cynthia had a calming presence which helped me through the day. She even helped me into my wedding dress! Cynthia made sure she was in on all the action which resulted in pictures that documented both the formal part of the wedding as well as the excitement of dancing all night long. I would recommend her to anyone!

Cynthia was so easy to work with. I especially appreciated her thoughtful discretion and grace while taking lots of photos on my wedding day. I was amazed at how many photos she had taken in just a few short hours. Her candid shots of our guests are very special to me. Cynthia has a very keen eye for good quality photos- right positioning, lighting, etc. She was also incredibly attentive to taking lots of candids.

Cynthia was awesome. Her positive attitude and enthusiasm for what she does made it so enjoyable taking all the pictures.
Throughout our entire ceremony/reception you could hardly tell they were there (which is important at times). When we were doing our formal pictures she had us all enjoying taking pictures and always kept a smile on her face.
She is extremely reliable and her overall cost is definitely worth everything she gives you.
Highly recommend Cynthia to all brides and grooms, you won't be disappointed!

Cynthia’s professionalism is top-notch. She was prompt in getting back to our initial correspondence, and also in providing us price quotes and a contract.
Her work really speaks for itself. Her photographs are full of light and life. She captured the day vividly and truthfully. She gave us a great balance between candid shots and portraits. She provided a very large selection of images. The images were posted for our guests to view online in a timely manner, and she even organized the images into subfolders for ease of viewing.
In addition to being a talented photographer, she is friendly and kind. It was a joy to have her there to work with us on our wedding day. She really went above and beyond to help us, and provided a great calming force in the midst of what could have been a chaotic day. She even tried to help me find a band-aid at the hotel when I stubbed my toe, and you can rest assured that sort of kindness wasn’t written up in our contract!
I wholeheartedly recommend Cynthia’s talents and services, and thank her one thousand times over for her exceptional work. If you want fantastic photos at a superior value, definitely contact Cynthia.

I absolutely love my wedding photos! Cynthia did such an amazing job of capturing so many of the cherished moments! Before our wedding, Cynthia and I had a long chat about how I envisioned the day going and the kinds of shots that I hoped she could take. She really understood what I was looking for and did an excellent job! She got to the wedding venue way in advance and surveyed the whole scene - both inside and out -- to find the perfect spots for photos. Her pictures truly do tell the story of our very happy wedding day! Cynthia is so easy to work with, and all of my bridesmaids commented on how nice and engaging she was. I would highly recommend Cynthia to any bride!

Cynthia was fantastic! I only had 8 weeks to plan my wedding, due to my husband's military service, and Cynthia was so helpful. The first time I spoke with her I was confident that photography was something that I wouldn't need to worry about.
She stayed in touch with me up until and after the wedding day with information about everything I had questions about. She helped me decide when to take our photographs, and even went so far as to check out the time the sun was going to set so we were sure we could get the photos in outside.
At one point during the reception Cynthia saw my sister-in-law, who was taking a lot of her own photos, and pulled her, my brother and young niece aside and took some family pictures with just them.
I highly recommend Cynthia, she went above and beyond with her service.
Oh and the photos themselves were fantastic!
