Happy Monday, friends! I had a bit of a late start this morning, but that was totally fine by me. The cooler weather is making snuggling up under our duvet that much more appealing, and seeing as Mondays after weddings are sort of a day off for me, I feel no qualms whatsoever about giving […]

  • Rachel Word - Definitely check out The Girl on the Train! A really thrilling mystery/drama! :)ReplyCancel

  • Rebekah - I’ve recently gotten into P.D. James. I’m a huge fan of Agatha Christie’s mysteries & P.D. James is quite similar. Seeing as you love all things British, I’d highly recommend anything by either one of them.ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Beautiful photo. I can agree with you on sleeping in on this cool rainy day here.ReplyCancel

  • Ethan With The Pants - You should read Anna Karenina. Not necessarily because it’s a great read (it is), but because then you can tell people, when you want to sound smart, “Yeah, I read Anna Karenina once, but I just found the 19th Century Russian style to be too polemic for what it tries to be.” I read tried to read Nietzsche’s “Thus Spake Zarathustra” like three times so I could tell people I read Nietzsche. I never did figure out what the heck he was talking about.

    So… yeah. Read angry 19th century Russian literature. Guaranteed to be disappointed everytime. Russian authors love to disappoint. NO TEARS, ONLY VODKA. DA.ReplyCancel

  • Camille - I’m a little obsessed with the new Cinderella movie as well :) I watched it on the flight to Europe while Ben watched Ex Machina next to me (we have slightly different tastes).

    PS for a new book PLEASE read the Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. It will blow your mind (if you haven’t read it already!)ReplyCancel

  • Kathryn - Ahhh, Cinderella. I’m actually surprised at myself that I haven’t picked it up on DVD yet, because I’m practically going through withdrawal… I saw it 6 times in the theater. Wish I was joking. O.oReplyCancel

  • Kaitlin Simpson - I just finished reading Room by Emma Donoghue. This is the first book I’ve read in a couple of years (I know, I’m sad about that too). It was sad, yet also gave me that victorious feeling too. It’s written from a five year old’s perspective so it was kind of a hard read for me, but once I got past that I couldn’t put it down. I cried. Not sure if that’s the type of book you’re looking for, but I loved it and would read it again! Happy reading :)ReplyCancel

  • Jia Ni - The Rosie Project is a really fun + light hearted read! Highly recommend! xReplyCancel

This’ll be short-but-sweet post, because today’s post is an easy one to understand! If you have a wedding come up at a venue you’ve never photographed before, you might want to think about attending the walkthrough. It’s not a rule I employ for every wedding, but it IS something I consider if any of the […]

  • Jean - Sounds like great advice. Gorgeous photos!ReplyCancel

I don’t know that things could have gone any more smoothly on Russell & Kelsey’s wedding day! Everything was perfect, from the florals to the weather, from the ceremony to the sparkler exit. But my favorite part of the day was right after the ceremony when the clouds parted and we saw the most spectacular […]

  • Urška Majer - Abby, this is simply amazing! One of my fave weddings i’ve seen on your blog :) Those sunset portraits are to die for!ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Absolutely fabulous photos. You captured so much joy in these pictures! Beautiful!ReplyCancel

  • Meredith Sledge - These are breathtaking! Love the editing and the beautiful, sweet, soft posing!ReplyCancel

  • Morgan (P&J) - Abby!!! These are so beautiful!! Love being on a vendor team with you, as usual!!!ReplyCancel

Their’s is a whirlwind romance. They met in April at a party, and by July, they both just knew that this was it. Engaged by August with wedding plans for December, they both laugh over how fast it’s all gone. But as someone who’s husband proposed after six months of dating, I 100% understand the […]

  • Jean - These are gorgeous photos. I can see why you get out so early to catch the light just right!ReplyCancel

  • Rici - Love your cute words Abby! And their outfit choice.ReplyCancel

  • Abbeigh - Love, love, love! That morning light! And her mint green skirt! Beautiful, Abby!!ReplyCancel

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had as amazing of a weekend as I did. Russell & Kelsey were married on Saturday at Breaux Vineyards with Ashlee Virginia and I was a little nervous going into it- the forecast was calling for nonstop rain allllll day. Somehow, though, we not only managed to avoid the rain, but we ended up […]

  • Ashlee - Most AMAZING sunset EVER!!!!! Loved this weekend!ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Gorgeous photos. Ethan’s photo is great. I’m with Matt on the peach cobbler. Love it!ReplyCancel
