As you’re swaying gently to Taylor Swift’s Lover, giggling with your girls over a second glass of morning champagne, and even taking family portraits, wedding photography can feel like that perfect blend of tranquil and thrilling. But turning that dream into a reality is all about finding the right person to stand behind the camera.
Whether I’m fixing your shoe or fluffing your gown at the altar, my invested approach to wedding photography ensures breathtaking photography without awkwardness or fake laughter. I create space (and a carefully crafted timeline) for sincere moments to unfold naturally while also guiding you into your best light during portraits. So, from the spontaneous to the stylized, every image won’t just be beautiful. It will feel beautiful, too!
How do I do it? Let’s dig in!
AT ABBE FORMAN PHOTOGRAPHY, YOUR COMFORT AND VISION ALWAYS MATTER MOST
We hired Abbe originally just to do our engagement session. I had a very specific vision of what I wanted our photos to look like and Abbe suggested several locations. We started at one that we didn’t end up loving and then pivoted to two other locations until she was satisfied that we had gotten all of our shots! Our one our session quickly turned into a full day of shooting and the outcome was incredible! Abbe made us feel as if we’d been friends for decades rather than only having known each other for a few hours. We booked her for our wedding the same day and can’t say enough positive things about both our engagement session and wedding experience! Abbe went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect and seamless and the final products were better than we could have imagined!
Want to circle your date on my calendar or just ask a few questions? It all starts with a call! After you share a bit about your dream day through my inquiry form, I’ll be in touch within 24 hours to continue the conversation and book a call. Then, we’ll get to know each other as we explore all the options for your custom tri-state wedding photography experience.
If you decide our styles, visions, and senses of humor align, it’s time to book your experience! With just a signed agreement and paid 20% retainer, you can pop the Veuve because you’ll have crossed a massive to-do off your list!
As soon as you book, you’ll receive a detailed welcome guide sharing more about what’s ahead, when to prep for each step in the journey, and how we’ll do it all. That way, you never feel out of the loop or nervous about what’s coming next.
Your wedding day might be when the next chapter in your love story begins, but it’s not the only one worth showcasing on the walls of your home. I’ll guide you through the process of styling and location selection to make the experience more fun as you get your first taste of what it’s like to step in front of my camera.
As your wedding day countdown enters the double digits, I’ll be in touch often to ensure everything is going smoothly, create your day-of timeline, and finalize your family photo list. And if you ever need a helping hand or listening ear, I’m just an email, text, or call away!
If you just started singing, it’s fine. So did I. But back on track! This is when we double-check all the details we’ve refined so far to make sure everything is up-to-date and ready to roll. And as your big day approaches, you can rest easy knowing I’ve got your photography completely covered!
With months and months of meticulous planning in the rearview, it’s time for you to just relax and enjoy what you’ve dreamed into life! I’ll dance my way into the wedding suite just as the final curl is perfected, wipe away a tear as you read your vows, and cheer like an extra bridesmaid during your first dance. And through it all, I’ll guide, encourage, and preserve to ensure you can relive it all forever!
While your fresh wedding day bouquet is still blooming on your coffee table, you’ll receive your first photo sneak peek to enjoy and share.

Neither of us had ever had professional photos taken before, so we had no idea what to expect. We went into it thinking it was going to be kind of awkward, but it ended up being such a fun experience. From the get-go, Abbe made us feel so comfortable, and she made the experience feel natural, which you can see through all our pictures. None of them look fake or posed. We were very clear we didn't want to look like robots or awkward. Not once did we feel like Abbe wasn't 100% invested!”
I do! If you’re looking to document another chapter in your family’s story, I’d love to meet you! From mamas-to-be to a crew of rambunctious littles, we can create a session for you that matches your vision. Just share the session style you’re interested in learning more about in your inquiry, and I’ll share more details through email!
I do, and it’s ready to share with your venue as soon as they need it.
Of course! I want to lift as much of the burden from your budget as possible while still delivering an unbelievable experience. Only a 20% non-refundable retainer is required to save your date. From there, it all gets a little choose-your-own-adventure! We can split up payments however you like as long as the remaining balance is paid 60 days before your celebration.
Definitely! Feel free to send out your gallery link or post on social media. My favorite Instagram notifications are tags on shared photos so I can see which images from your gallery were your favorites! Just please remember not to apply any crops, edits, or filters when you post.
While I do offer engaged, hands-on direction when necessary, I also know when to fade into the background to allow moments to unfold naturally. This ensures you’ll see a beautiful blend of both posed and candid images throughout your final gallery!
I’d love to! While based in Philadelphia, I routinely drive up and down the East Coast to photograph weddings. Just share your celebration location in your inquiry, and I will walk you through the options available to you during your consultation call.
BOOK YOUR CALL
The East Coast wedding photography experience of your dreams is just a form and a call away. So, whether you’re positive we’re a match made in heaven or you just want to see what I’m all about, let’s get down to business!
