Teilla & Taquan: Married: St. Louis, MO Wedding: Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch

Teilla & Taquan ("TQ") have the sweetest spirits.  From the moment we first chatted, I was in love with them.  They are gentle, loving, kind... all the qualities you would want in a couple you have to photograph!  These are also qualities that make them perfect for each other.  They balance each other out in the best ways!  I was lucky enough to spend a few days with them where they live in Austin, Texas earlier last year.  They had recently relocated there when TQ got a job offer he couldn't refuse. They had me come down there to photograph their engagement session.  (You can see it HERE.)  I really got to know them on that trip, and it was such ...

Teilla & Taquan: Married: St. Louis, MO Wedding: Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch

Kayte & Ryan were married in Klondike Park on July 25, 2015.  They camped there the night before AND on their wedding night, surrounded by their family and friends.  It was one of the most personal, intimate weddings I've ever photographed.  Did I also forget to mention that it was over 100 degrees that day and EVERYTHING was outdoors?  These guys were complete troopers the entire day.  From climbing through thick woods to get "the money shot", to wrangling their four kiddos... they were game for anything that day!This is my favorite image of their entire day...I have to say that it was so special being there with Kayte on her wedding day.  We've been close ...

Sarah + Bart: An Abbie Takes Pictures Wedding Day
Friday, November 08, 2013

Sarah and Bart came to ATP through one of our most favorite couples (Amanda & Casey Barrale: Married 2011!). From the moment I met Sarah and Bart, I've adored them! We went to lunch after their engagement session, and sat for hours just chatting and getting to know each other.  They are a fun, loving, and gracious couple, and it was our honor to photograph their big day. We had absolutely perfect weather, and a huge bridal party full of hilarious folks!!  Their families were truly attentive to everyone's needs throughout the day, and the emotions were so sweet and touching.  Lots of happy tears were shed that day! Here's a little bit more about the couple...ATP: How did ...

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 ...
