In between work, your energetic dog (or two), and your weekend plans, trying to coordinate the biggest party of your life can feel more like herding cats and less like the elegant, picture-perfect vision you’ve had in your head since you were a little girl. And trust me, I get it. I’ve walked a mile in your shoes, nervous and overwhelmed about all the planning in front of me! That’s why I aim to bring you a wedding photography experience that skips the stress while I handle the rest. I ensure every bridal party member has those pesky hanger straps tucked away and the hair ties to their wrists before walking down the aisle. I look out for flyaway hairs or lipstick stains in the group photo. And I even come packed with ring boxes and ribbons for your flat lay photos. With the Abby Byrd Wedding Experience, you’re getting so much more than a gallery of images—you’re getting a calming presence to keep the day running smoothly, so you can enjoy these precious moments with the people you love most!
“Abby was extremely organized and professional, and I felt extremely condent and comfortable trusting her with capturing the big day. Abby also helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera! My husband and I were so anxious about how to pose and what to do—but Abby saved us! And it shows in the pictures!"
Lizzy, 2018 Bride
Twelve to eighteen months before your wedding date, send me an inquiry through my contact form. I’ll be back in touch within 48 hours with next steps!
About one week after I receive your inquiry, we’ll have a video call where I get to know you two as a couple. This is when you can ask any questions, and I’ll start learning more about your vision for wedding photography.
Next, I’ll send a proposal tailored to your vision in the consultation call. If there are any adjustments you’d like to make, just let me know. Once we’re settled on the proposal, I’ll send an agreement and retainer invoice to save your date!
You’ll receive a welcome guide and questionnaire from me so that I can get all the little details about your big day. The welcome guide will walk you through the engagement session, too. And don’t forget to keep an eye on your mailbox for something extra special coming your way!
On your engagement session day, we’ll document your love story in a special place to you two. I’ll direct you, so you’ll never have to worry about feeling nervous or looking awkward in a photo. Your engagement photos will be ready to share with the world in just four weeks!
With your wedding day approaching, I’ll gather more information from you so I can best craft your timeline. We’ll have an open line of communication, so you can always reach out to me with more details or any questions you may have. Now, go enjoy your bachelorette party because your wedding day is right around the corner!
On your wedding day, you’ll savor every precious moment while I document it all. Don’t worry about the schedule or the timeline because I will keep us on track by ensuring everyone knows where and when they’re needed. Think of me as a helping hand who's always looking out for what could go wrong and fixing it before it does! And with my Signature Collection booked, you can rest assured that I’ll be there from the first mimosa toast to the rom-com-worthy sparkler exit under the stars.
Your sneak peek of some of the best photos from the day will arrive in 48 hours, and your full gallery will be delivered in less than eight weeks. But the journey doesn’t end there! After you’ve snuggled up to relive all the highlights from your big day, I’ll reach out to help you craft your very first albums and heirlooms to enjoy for generations to come.
The last thing you want on your wedding day is to feel rushed. My 10-hour signature wedding collection is the most popular and ensures every moment is captured, from the first curl to the final call at the bar. Most couples spend an average of 6100.
Of course! I love incorporating dogs into engagement sessions and even into weddings! I have a guide just for you that’s full of tips on having an amazing session with your pet. Just let me know your plans for the pup in my inquiry form, and I’ll send that guide your way as your session approaches
While you’ll receive all of your images in a digital gallery, I’ll bring both a digital and film camera to your wedding day. To make sure I don’t miss essential moments, I’ll have my digital camera out and rapidly clicking during your ceremony, reception, and more. I’ll break out my film camera for intentionally composed portraits and fun reception shots that have the “film look” you love!
Don’t worry at all! Things might feel a little weird at first, and that’s totally OK! We’ll work through it, and you’ll feel like a natural before long! I pose and prompt you, so you never have to worry about stiff arms or strained smiles. And, for those in-the-moment candids, you won’t even know I’m there!
I’m part of a small network of Atlanta wedding photographers who have the same photography philosophy and similar styles. We help each other on wedding days, so my second photographer is always a trusted colleague I’ve worked well with before.
My client guide includes tons of information on what to wear and how to choose the perfect location. Spoiler: I always recommend couples choose a place that means something special to them! But if you need help selecting a spot, I’ll scout one out based on your vision. I can also give you a hand as you choose your wardrobe and search for hair and makeup artists if you’d like! I want to make sure this experience is always fun, never stressful!
I love crafting intentional, tranquil photography experiences for couples all over Northern Georgia. Whether you’ll be reciting your vows at a winery tucked away in the hills, or at the stunning city church you’ve always admired, I’d love to walk by your side on your journey to “I do.”
