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. This day, this moment, this story is about the two of you...your smiles, your gentle embraces, your laughs, and your love. But weddings include so much more than just the gorgeous images of the couple and we 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.



The moment you become a parent, something within your heart changes. It opens in a way that you didn’t even know is possible and these tiny little people entirely take it over. And as the years go by, that love and those memories just continue to grow. Throughout each stage of your life whether your family is just beginning or is in the midst of all the best parts, you want to be able to capture every little thing that you hold so dear. From the way a new dad holds his first baby, to a mother cradling their little ones, to the way all your little ones look as they become the center of a family bear hug, or the way your teens interact when they think nobody's watching. Life is so precious and the time passes so quickly and we feel so grateful to be able to be part of capturing this time in your life. Freezing for just a moment all the little things you love so that you can remember them forever.

We don’t want you to just see something, we want you to feel something

My wedding day, though it didn't go exactly as expected, was (you guessed it) the best day of my life! After weeks of the weather forecast predicting sunny and 80 degrees we left the Salt Lake Temple to downpour! However, it was one of my favorite parts of the day, standing around with our closest friends and family taking pictures in the pouring rain! I absolutely LOVED working with Abbey and Bianca! Weddings can be so stressful to plan so its a huge sigh of relief when you have an organized and on-top-of-things photographer (or set of them!). I really appreciated that Abbey was committed to making sure I was happy with my photos and getting the best quality, it showed me that she truly cares about not only her brides but also the quality of work she produces. She basically is a wedding planner as well, as she kept EVERYONE in line and accomplishing things on time, got our giant bridal party to cooperate with pictures and made sure to capture every single special moment we had. Having timeless, beautiful photos was one of the most important things to me for my wedding and I felt that AK Studio & Design was the best option. You get more than you pay for with the quality, quantity, and timeliness of your images! I never had to stress when it came to my pictures because I knew they were going to turn out perfect, and I think that's something every bride wants!
I loved how we got our pictures back so quickly the team is very efficient. It was amazing to have two photographers on our wedding day. I feel like they didn't miss a single moment from the whole day. One of my other favorite things about working with them is that they are able to direct and tell the bridal party and family what to do during pictures very effectively. I didn't have to worry about any of that and that was soo nice. We were told over and over again how amazing our photographers were and we definitely agree. I feel like by the end the whole AK team were my close friends. I will be recommending them to everyone!!
This is our family’s second photo session with AK Studio. We love how organized and professional their staff is. My family received every detail that we needed to have a great photo session. They cover every detail from getting to know us to helping us with what to wear. We were also so surprised and excited both times when we got my pictures back so fast. We love AK!
Scheduling is very easy to do and they are quick to answer questions. Your pictures are edited and sent back quickly. They have great customer service, and we recommend them to everyone!
Abbey is absolutely amazing! My husband and I were both nervous, but Abbey made it so easy! She helped us feel comfortable and gave us  direction so we could feel more natural in front of the camera. It really felt like we were just hanging out with a friend.We both have large families and I have seen family pictures outside of the temple take a really long time with other photographers. Abbey had no fear about working with the large group and took control comfortably and quickly. She knew the pictures I wanted and others that she knew I would want, and got it done efficiently without making it feel rushed. Abbey was also really helpful during the whole event and went above and beyond the responsibilities of a photographer in many ways. She helped me throughout the entire night and was there to keep me on track with the timeline I wanted. I can’t say enough about Abbey. She is so friendly, efficient, kind, talented, and willing to help in any way she can.  The whole AK Studio & Design team was the same. I never felt like a burden when I had questions and I always felt important when I contacted them. They were always so willing to help in any way they could. We gained some friends and can’t wait to keep going back as our family grows!
AK Studio Design is hands down THE best. From actually getting your pictures done, to the process of picking your favorites and downloading them. Her process is streamlined, professional, and easy! I loved our wedding pictures and I love our family pictures!
Abbey and her team are so organized and were so attentive to how I envisioned my photos to turn out.  Abbey made it very easy to be ourselves in front of the camera. On top of it, the editing is beautiful. Thank you! We love our pictures so much.
AK Studio & Design is such an amazing company they truly care about the quality of not only your photos but your day! They will listen to your concerns and will do whatever they can to put your vision in photos. Wind, rain or shine they will follow through. I highly recommend AK Studio & Design for your special day.
I have always felt that you get what you pay for when it comes to pictures.  Photographers are a dime a dozen these days, but if you want a true artist with good business practice, call AK Studio & Design!
I am so impressed by the organization and communication at AK Studio & Design. When it came time to schedule our mini session we were given a link to a page on their website and were able to chose the date and the location that worked the best for us. There were multiple days, times and locations to chose from and I loved having options.  About a week after our shoot we received an email with images to chose from.  After we chose our favorite photos they were sent off to editing.  This process has been the easiest we have experienced with a photographer, by far.  I love having professional photos of my family to display in my home, but buying outfits, paying for a full session and ordering the pictures isn't always in our budget. Mini sessions are the perfect solution for us! Now we can update our family pictures each year as our family grows and changes.  I didn't feel like we missed out on anything at all during our mini session. We have great family portraits, lots of candid shots and even individual pictures of each of the kids. We will absolutely be using AK Studio & Design in the future!
From start to finish this was the most professional and best experience I have had when I comes to family pictures. They are very helpful and quick to respond if you have any questions. They send reminder emails and get to know you emails that help create an amazing photo session to compliment every family member. I was very pleased with our overall experience and Morgan was amazing as always.

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.
