NYC Anniversary Shoot: Abby & Matt

Happy Monday Internet!!

Today I am SO excited to kick off this week right, by sharing with you an NYC anniversary shoot we just did with the amazing Abby & Matt!! Abby is actually a wedding photographer herself down in the DC area, who we got to meet first through this blog (the internet is an amazing thing!), then for a Walk Through a Wedding Workshop earlier this year, and now she is someone we feel very lucky to call a friend! So when she contacted us about doing an anniversary shoot for her & her adorable husband Matt we knew we had to make it happen! After a few back & forths trying to schedule dates in either DC or CT, we finally found a weekend that worked for all four of us in the middle in NYC. We spent time with these guys walking around the City, sipping hot cocoa, randomly running in to Chicago photographer Kenny Kim, and (my favorite!) ordering mac & cheese with a side of …mac & cheese! at the famous Bubby’s.

It was an incredible day. Spent with two absolutely incredible people who I love with my whole heart!

    AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness, I LOVE THESE SO MUCH!!!! Yayayay! Oh Justin & Mary, you have no idea what these photos mean to us. Spending the afternoon with you all in front of your lenses made me fall in love with my husband and my career all over again. Thank you so much for such an incredible day, and for such beautiful images to fill our home with! I know we’re going to love these even more in 62 years, though it’s hard to imagine being any more ecstatic with them than I am today! We love you!!

  31. Karen Field

    As Abby’s mom I’ve told her how much I love her passion in photography. But I also wanted to see her in front of the camera. It’s so nice to hear others think the same. And kudos to Matt as being photographed is not really "his thing". Abby and Matt really are what you see in these photos.

  32. Erin

    Abby, if you’re reading – WHERE are those yellow shoes from!?!?! They would be perfect with my wedding colors ;)

  33. Abby Grace

    @Erin- they’re from DSW!
