Abby Bates photographY

Abby is truly AMAZING. My husband and I both hate taking pictures and are super awkward in front of the camera but we loved our wedding photos so much it was hard to choose a favorite! She is perfect at making you feel comfortable and poses you so you don't have to have any experience which we LOVED. 

Encouraging, kind & professional

Abby was truly a godsend on our wedding day. She was not only our photographer (and an amazing one at that) but also a friend throughout our whole wedding planning experience! She made us feel so comfortable and stress free on our wedding day. I knew our engagement/wedding day photos were my number one priority when it came to wedding planning and if I could go back I would choose Abby every time!

'Booking with Abby was hands down the best decision we made when planning our wedding!! Our wedding truly would not have been the same without her! From our engagement session, planning our day-of timeline, the wedding day itself, and all the way to picking out our final album, Abby was there through it all and we could not be more grateful for her and all that she did for us.'
