"We had Abby travel to our destination wedding in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida because we had seen her work and fallen in love with her style. Little did we know that we would fall in love her as a person too! The most important day of our lives just would not have been the same without her. My husband and I have never felt so comfortable in front of the camera, she knew exactly how to get “the shot” for every little detail of our wedding. Most amazing photographer in the WORLD!"
