Liz + Ellen: Married: Private Residence: St. Louis Wedding

First of all - let me say how excited I am to announce that this wedding was published in the 2016 Spring/Summer issue St. Louis Bride Magazine!Liz & Ellen were married on one of the hottest days last summer.  However, the heat was never really a big factor in their day.  Everyone was so happy and laid back that it was one of the best weddings we shot last year!  They chose to get married in St. Louis at Ellen's parent's house.  It could quite possibly be one of my most favorite houses in this city.  From the incredible front and back yards, to the lovely charm that the architecture has... it just warms your heart the minute you pull up in the driveway. ...

Andrew + Nicole: An Abbie Takes Pictures Engagement Session
Friday, August 16, 2013

Meet Andrew and Nicole. They are fun, warm-hearted, bubbly, passionate, and all-around good people. Within a few minutes of us meeting for the first time, I knew I liked them! We sat for several hours just sharing stories and hanging out (as I do with a lot of our couples), and we really connected. Nicole had a ton of great questions during their consultation, which showed me that she was really prepared for the meeting, and that she and Andrew really had done their research about wedding photography and what to look for in a wedding photographer. (THIS IS SO INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT!! I'll have a blog post that talks about that very soon!) One of my favorite things about engagement ...

Meghan + Rene: Married
Sunday, September 09, 2012

René & Meghan were married on one of the hottest days this summer! But let me tell you, the weather was no match for this HOT couple.  :)  The flow of the day was absolutely perfect, as Meghan had everything planned out ahead of time.  She was one of the most organized brides that I've had the pleasure of working with!  Enjoy their images, and our conversation with the bride herself... ATP: How did you and René meet?MS: How I met René was kind of cliché….I met him at a bar in Huntsville, Alabama. It was immediate attraction at first sight.  ATP: Why did you choose Saint Louis as the place to get married?MS: I was born ...
