The AK Bride Experience
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. So you want to make sure every moment is captured beautifully.
Other than your love, your photography is the only thing that lasts past the wedding day. So you want to make sure that you have the most beautiful images to look back on to remember every moment.
This day, this moment, this story is about the two of you...your smiles, your gentle embraces, your laughs, and your love. It's about finding perfect lighting to create the unforgettable setting to tell your story. To capture gorgeous artistic images that will become your most precious keepsakes.
But weddings include so much more than just the gorgeous images of the couple and I strive to capture every moment as it unfolds throughout the day. Your wedding day is about all the warm smiles and happy faces of the people who came to support you, tears of joy that are shed as you pledge your love to each other, all the details of the day you have worked so hard to make perfect, and everything in between. It's about the moment you slip your dress on, to the moment you hug your parents goodbye. The tiny moments that make up your perfect day are special, fleeting and perfect. Life is scattered with tiny moments of beauty and emotion, and my goal is to capture each one of those memories that tell your entire love story.
If you've had the chance to read any of the testimonials from my past brides you saw, I am sure, that I try to be really involved with my brides and help as much as I can. In my effort to continue that I have created a comprehensive guide for each of my brides that will answer so many questions you will have and walk you step-by-step through the process of wedding photography...and so many other aspects of your big day, that you might not even think about.
Having shot nearly 200 weddings, I have seen just about everything and want to make sure that you have all the information you need to have a completely stress free day and avoid some situations I have seen in my experience. And give you so many tips and tricks to make the planning of a wedding easier.
The bridal guide will also walk you through session prep so we can maximize each of your sessions and make them truly spectacular. From hair and makeup, to choosing outfits and locations, to my top ten tips for a stress free photography experience, this guide covers absolutely everything.
It may have all started with me, but I believe things got truly amazing when we became a team. Most everyone would say I am the “mom boss” around here. I feel so blessed to be in this moment. And I look forward to hearing all about your love story, whatever chapter you may be on, whether its being a bride, a new mommy, or just celebrating life as love grows.
Owner / PhotographerAbbey's Testimonials
With me you can expect outgoing professionalism with just enough quirkiness to keep it from being formal and stuffy. Lots of talking with my hands. Awkward pauses. Some semi-inappropriate jokes from behind the camera. All of which will lead to amazingly awesome photos of you that you will LOVE. Get excited. It could almost be as good as a trip to Disneyland! Almost.

As a couple just getting started in your journey through life you may not yet realize this, but when it comes to your family history, one of the first significant heirloom pieces you will personally create is your wedding album.
The wedding album is more than just a collection of pictures. It’s a story. And as your wedding photographer, I will play the part of the storyteller. I make sure that all the significant events, details, emotions, and loved ones on your wedding day are perfectly captured. They document one of the most important events of your lives and place them into the pages of a wedding album for future generations.
Remember that items of great importance are handed down from generation to generation as important keepsakes of a family’s past. They play an important role in maintaining the family history by keeping the memories alive of those who once occupied a place in it. A wedding album will ensure that your family history is kept alive as it is passed down.
