Hey! I'm Abby, a Delaware-based outdoor enthusiast, photographer, and adventure-seeker. I grew up running through the mud, catching crayfish in creeks, and playing with my pet snake. Eventually, I decided to invest in a camera to take with me on my adventures. I moved from Dayton, Ohio to Delaware in the summer of 2016, and I love living in the first state because there is so much to explore. 

I'm most passionate about sharing my love of the outdoors with other others. Most days you'll find me by the ocean with my camera and an ice cream cone. I firmly believe that horseshoe crab spawning season is the best time of the year. Don't believe me? Come to Delaware for a visit. 

What are we doing here on the computer? Let's get outside and go on an adventure. Maybe we can stop for ice cream on the way...

ABOUT

Why Adventure? 

I specialize in outdoor weddings and sessions because I'm an outdoorist first and a photographer second. I fell in love with the outdoors before I ever touched a camera. I started photography with landscapes, and still photograph landscapes all the time. 

When I say I love adventures, I mean it. For fun, I'm constantly traveling, kayaking, hiking, biking, traveling, and looking for new outdoor experiences. I've been to 25 countries and 46/50 states. 

I'm most passionate about connecting people and outdoors. Photography isn't just about pretty photos for me. It's about capturing real moments, the connection that two people share, and the connection that those two people have to the landscape around them. My goal is to capture your love and lifestyle and your passion in a way that truly represents who you are. 

I also believe that when it comes to your love story, you have the freedom to tellI it however you want. So go ahead. Break tradition. Your wedding day can be however you imagine it. Do what is ultimately going to bring the most joy to you and your partner, whatever that may mean to you. 

Do you love hiking? Let's go hiking. Do you love the beach? Let's go there. Would you rather elope than have a large wedding? Great. Want to get married in a National Park? I'm there.

I believe that life is one big adventure, and that adventure is worth celebrating , documenting, and remembering.
