I am a firm believer in putting my hopes and dreams out there for the world to see- the last few times I’ve done so, it’s resulted in people coming alongside me to help me see those goals become a reality! So in the spirit of dreaming and dreaming BIG, I’m putting it all out there for you guys to see. It’s a bit of a risk, because some of these dreams are pretty audacious and if I never achieve them, you all will know that I’ve failed. But since I’m not defined by my successes or failures, let’s begin!

One day I’d love to photograph a wedding in….
— Paris
— Santorini, Greece
— London (we’re doing an engagement session in London in June- that’s pretty darn close!)
— Tuscany
— Ireland
— Germany
— Switzerland
— China
— Turkey
— Australia’s Gold Coast
— California’s wine country

I’d love to shoot an elopement…
— at a carnival/state fair
— in New York City
— in an Italian villa
— at a malt shoppe

It’s on my bucket list to…
— photograph a professional ballerina
— host a workshop
— have Matt as my exclusive second shooter and business partner
— learn to shoot editorial portraiture (watching Joey L on CreativeLive was so inspiring!)
— photograph a bride in a colored dress (how about pink?)
— shoot a wedding coordinated by Rhi of Hey Gorgeous Events
— build a custom home with my very own dark room and secret passage
— attend one of Kenny Kim‘s Photoventure Italy tours
— donate my time to the A21 Campaign

Are some of these a little ridiculous? Yeah, but that’s why we call them “dreams” :). What about you guys? What’s one thing you HAVE to do, one thing that lights a fire in you and pushes you to keep reaching?

^ This wedding is hitting the blog tomorrow! GET EXCITED!

Happy Wednesday!

  • Bethany - If you want to photograph a professional ballerina you could always try contacting an art or dance academy and see if any of their instructors would be interested in posing for you. Just an idea!
    I love your list – big dream and goals push you to succeed in ways you never knew you could :)ReplyCancel

  • Rebekah Hoyt - I LOVE your big dreams!! I would love to shoot a wedding in Switzerland, hands-down. My mom’s best friend is Swiss and she has 3 beautiful daughters – I hope to shoot ALL of their weddings!!! :)

  • Sabrina - I love posts like this!! Shooting a wedding in the south of France is at the top of my list right now. As is getting the business to a point where Ben and I can work together full time! Can. not. WAIT to see what this year holds for you!!ReplyCancel

    Love that you are putting your dreams out there!ReplyCancel

One of the biggest mistakes I’ve made as a growing photographer is following other photographers’ lead without asking myself whether or not it fits with me, my vision, and my business. I’d see other photographers doing fun/quirky/unique poses or stylizing details in creative ways, and I’d blindly imitate them without pausing to think over whether or not this pose works for MY couples or MY vision. Frankly, I think a lot of that had to do with the fact that I didn’t know what the heck my vision was (still working on that), so not having a filter to push things through was causing a bit of chaos- I was imitating the sort of thing I’d seen other professionals doing without thinking about the fact that I’m not the same person, photographer, or business owner. I think most photographers can probably identify with this sort of thing, especially during the early stages of your business!

It first dawned on me that I was making a mistake when I caught myself taking a photograph that I really and truly couldn’t justify, and honestly, didn’t even like. I was at a gorgeous venue and for some reason decided that photographing the dress outside was the perfect place to shoot, so outside we went. Something didn’t feel right, and it wasn’t until I was culling a few days later that I realized the reason behind my discomfort- I couldn’t explain WHY I’d taken the dress outside.

Before I offend anyone, let me be perfectly clear- I have no qualms whatsoever with photographing dresses outdoors :). I’ve seen some really beautiful images of dresses hanging on tree branches, stone walls, etc- my friend Lauryn does it really well! But for me and my personal style as an artist, I’m discovering more and more than I prefer images that feel as though I may have happened upon the item/couple and photographed them as they are.

Virginia wedding photographer- Abby Grace Photography

I won’t call myself a photojournalist- TRUE photojournalists like Jonas Peterson don’t move or style anything. If there’s a water bottle on the bed next to the shoes, that’s how they’ll photograph it, Aquafina and all. But I do want the images I capture to feel classic, authentic, organic; I want my brides and grooms to look back on their images and be able to enjoy reminiscing about their memories without the distraction of wondering why their rings were photographed on a complicated background involving their wedding cake, sparklers and a pair of cufflinks. Again, not that there’s anything wrong with that- it’s just not my style. So when I photograph something like a pair of shoes, I’ve learned that the images I’m MOST satisfied with are usually clean, free of lots of extra detail, and reminiscent of an elegant simplicity.

Virginia wedding photographer- Abby Grace Photography

The same sort of idea applies when I’m posing my brides and grooms. To be clear, I DO pose my clients- I know they’re not professional models and being given direction on how to stand, where to direct their eyes, allows them to relax and trust that I’m going to make them look amazing. When I pose my brides and grooms, I’ve learned to try and filter each and every pose through the same “WHY” filter- why am I posing them this way? Is this how they may stand/sit when they’re alone, without onlookers? If the answer is yes, then fire away! If the answer is no, I reevaluate.

Virginia wedding photographer- Abby Grace Photography

Sometimes, it’s fun to break the rules. Because I’m my own boss and I can. One of my favorite ring shots EVER is from Brad & Lauren’s wedding- that pink bottle of Coco Mademoiselle was calling to me. I made an artistic decision to bend my own rules and as a result, I captured an image that I will ALWAYS love. There are still elements of that classic simplicity that I love, though- the bottle of perfume is timeless, Lauren’s ring is effortlessly elegant. Would Lauren have naturally set her ring down on top of her perfume bottle like this? Probably not, but this is an instance where I took creative license… because I am, at heart, a creative.

Virginia wedding photographer- Abby Grace Photography

It doesn’t always work out like that- I’ve put a lot of time in the past into creating these crazy complicated-yet-awesome jewelry shots only to look at them later with distaste- why? Because they look too contrived. Because it feels like I was trying to be someone else. And in those instances I’m reminded to ask myself WHY, and that it’s ok that my images don’t necessarily look like what everyone else is doing, that my photographs don’t involve the trendy poses I see so often on big wedding blogs. Because that call to classic? That’s what makes me ME.

  • Elizabeth V - And THAT is why you are awesome… because you are YOU :)
    Keep up the great work! I’ve LOVED all of the military weddings lately!ReplyCancel

  • molly stillman - LOVE this post, abby!! such a unique perspective / issue / thought / whathaveyou that i’ve never even heard anyone openly talk about. it’s so awesome to hear / read / see the WHY behind your gorgeous images!ReplyCancel

  • Ashley S - Abby, you nailed this post! I’ve been feeling exactly like this lately. Your words really opened my eyes. Thank you, thank you! Well done as usual :) xoReplyCancel

  • Janine A. Enold - Abby! Thanks so much for reminding me just to be myself – even if I’m still figuring out who that is :-)!ReplyCancel

  • Lauryn - Great post girl!! Such a hard question that we have to keep asking ourselves, keep honing our vision!!ReplyCancel

  • Rebekah Hoyt - I LOVE that you know who you are as an artist! I’ve always admired this about you :)ReplyCancel

  • Jen Allison - Abby, this is precisely why we were thrilled to find you and can’t wait for you to shoot our wedding! Your photos are elegant and beautiful without feeling contrived. They have that amazing quality of being timeless that will ring true 20, 30, 50 years from now. Keep staying true to who you are!ReplyCancel

  • Lauren Beggs - You have such a great eye Abby! I would say majority of the people that see our photos say – “WOW, these are timeless!” So thank you ABBY!!!ReplyCancel

  • Emily Cerasani - I LOVE this post. It reminds me of the pictures of girls in prom dresses on a rusty truck… Why are they there again?

    This has actually really helped me think about my own personal style and how I don’t like the complicated, “messy” set ups… I really like shooting things as they are and telling the story that exists, not writing one of my own. Thank you for this post! :)ReplyCancel

  • Erin Schrad - This is a great message… one I needed to hear. I’ve been a photographer for a long time, but I’m only just now trying to define what my style is. I’m sure I have one, but I’m finally trying to learn to recognize it. How I shoot is just how I shoot… I’ve never tried to break it down before. I’m almost having an easier time identifying things I WOULDN’T do… not that there is anything wrong with the way other photographers shoot, but it’s not what I like. I felt for a long time like I wasn’t marketable as a photographer unless I could shoot like so-and-so or give people what seemed to be trendy or current or popular at the time. I’ve considered myself just your run-of-the-mill photographer (and maybe I am!) who likes nice, clean exposures and crisp focus… classic images. Which is hardly a way to “stand out”, or at least that’s how I’ve felt. And I have a hard time seeing my own ideas, compositions, etc as “creative” because it’s just how I see things… but I guess it might be creative to other people. I guess I just have to just keep doing what comes naturally and see where it goes!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah Adams - This is something I’ve never really thought about- but I am SO glad you wrote about it! You have such an awesome perspective on photo business. I’m so inspired by you!ReplyCancel

  • Rosa - Your style is coming together nicely! Clean, simple and timeless :)ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Your style is very classic and I love it! Just keep on doing what you do best. Don’t be afraid to try new things and let your creative side continue to grow! Love you!ReplyCancel

  • Rici - Love Love the ring shot Abby! Thank you for sharing!! ~ saluti.ReplyCancel

  • Vanessa Chupp - Love this post Abby! Your style and photos are beautiful so definitely keep asking why and follow what you love, and your style!!! XoReplyCancel

  • Paulina - love this, Abby!! Thanks for having the courage to remind us all to be ourselves =). The photos are lovely =).ReplyCancel

I made it! It’s May 13th and I’m still alive :). Prior to this past couple of months, I’d never photographed more than three consecutive wedding weekends. I’ve just finished up a six-week stretch and I feel great! Matt and I are taking the next couple of weekends off before hopping back into the season and while I’ve absolutely loved being as busy as we were with weddings, I’m looking forward to recharging over the next two weekends. Our Saturday this coming weekend is all planned out: from 8 am to 11 pm, we will do…. nothing. Well, we’ll probably hit the farmer’s market, but other than that, nothing. And it’s going to be glorious!

As always, things that have happened/lessons learned from the past week:

  • I need to embrace the fact that I’m an utter klutz. During my run last Wednesday I tripped on flat sidewalk and totally ate it, landing on my elbow and hip. I was rewarded with a a large batch of road rash on my arm and pain while walking. Perks: I DID have an excuse to sport the Spongebob band-aids my dad sent me during my freshman year of college.
  • While on my flight home from Florida last week, I calculated taht with my trip to Jacksonville and my trip to Kansas city the previous weekend, I’d been at 8 different airports in 7 days. This is a record for me, and I’d like to avoid beating it in the future.
  • On my flight TO Jacksonville, I sat next to an especially tall gentleman who’d played for the NBA back in the 70’s- I felt pretty famous chatting with him! It turns out he has the gift of telling it like it is- when he asked my about my band-aid and I told him I’d tripped on flat ground, he said “You’re not very coordinated, are you?” Guess not.
  • Hip injuries are no joke. It’s a good thing I’ve always been a stomach sleeper because even rolling over hurts.

And (you knew it was coming) a preview from Greg & Jackie’s wedding on Saturday! Full blog post coming on Thursday!

Sarah and I go way back to the first day on band camp (yes, folks- band camp) in 9th grade, and we’ve been through a lot together- homecomings, band drama, high school in general, the tumult of navigating relationships as a teenager. She was a bridesmaid at my wedding is one of the only people from high school I still keep up with, and I love her SO very dearly! We’ve watched each other fall in and out of love, and knowing her as well as I do, I knew that once she met Dan things had changed. They met in San Diego while Dan was finishing med school with the Navy and within a few short months, Dan received his orders to be down in Jacksonville, Florida for his next phase of residency. It was a a leap of faith, but after a little consideration Sarah followed suit.

Something was definitely different about Dan- he brought a level of joy and incandescent happiness to Sarah’s life that I’d never seen in her before. So imagine my delight when I received an email from Dan saying he was planning to propose and wanted to know if I’d come down to Florida to photograph it? Um, YES.

When it came to choosing the location, Dan had the perfect idea: there’s a 200-year-old sprawling oak tree in Jacksonville that they’d been meaning to visit and he wanted to propose underneath its shade. Sarah loves oaks- her grandparents are buried under one and she has a tattoo of the tree on her back, so I don’t think Dan could have chosen a more perfect spot.

Dan, thank you SO MUCH for flying me down to photograph this!! I knew you were perfect for Sarah, and the lengths you went to to make her feel loved is such a testament to the fact that you belong together. Sarah, BEST WISHES!!! I’m so so excited for this new chapter in your life, and I love you like crazy, girl!!

Enough chatter- onto the photos!

A love story that began in a Bible study and has since spanned the globe came full circle this past Saturday. With nearly 200 friends and family in attendance, Greg and Sarah made the commitment of a lifetime- to have and to hold, to love and to cherish. Greg’s last name, “Humble,” was more than an appropriate descriptor for these newlyweds. Both gentle spirits, both with a heart to serve one another and those around them. Soon after Greg’s covert proposal operation in Rhode Island last year, he deployed to Afghanistan where he spent most of their engagement, and so the waiting period began. Sarah kept things moving along with wedding plans and preparing for their move to Italy where they’ll spend their first two years of marriage, but it wasn’t until he was back home that all was well again. And so their wedding day, as much of a celebration of marriage as it was, it was also a celebration of a welcome home, of the reuniting of two souls, of the beginning of an incredibly exciting adventure.

Greg & Sarah, I am so, so thankful for the both of you. I can’t even express to you how much I appreciate you allowing me the honor of documenting your wedding day, so I’ll just simply say “thank you.” Thank you for your warm friendship, for making me feel welcome, and for following wherever God calls you. I hope Jamaica is as warm and relaxing as you’ve imagined, and I wish you all the best in Italy!

The fact that Greg & Sarah decided to have an unplugged wedding made me love them even more!
