I literally have to pinch myself that my job is to meet and capture memories for the most amazing humans every single day. I strive to be the type of person you meet and immediately go, “wow, I feel like I have known her forever!” I am a laid back kind-hearted soul that feels the most fulfilled when I am helping to make the world a better place. To me, happiness is helping people feel beautiful, confident, accepted, and understood, which is probably why I am all about spreading good vibes and positivity everywhere I go.
I am an empath, a dreamer, old soul, and a self proclaimed introverted extrovert. I adore simple, heartfelt moments, and I am the happiest when I am creating. I lam a lover of sunsets, good friends, board games, exploring new places, all things vintage, and cozying up with a 2000’s rom com.
When it comes to my work and my style, I am super inspired by human connection, those perfectly imperfect moments, vintage magazines, thrift stores, and all things retro. I also get a lot of my inspiration from old photographs, especially those of my mom, dad, and grandma. I strive to provide my clients photographs that, years from now, their children, grandkids, and loved ones can look back on and think, "wow they were so cool."
I'm a Leo…in other words I am extra AF (in the best way possible)
I LOVEEE EDM, but 60's & 70’s rock will always have my heart.
I have seen every single episode of Survivor and the Real Housewives (and, in all honestly, I haven't met a reality tv show I didn't like LOL).
I have an unhealthy obsession with Taco Bell and cookie dough ice cream.
I have been with my high school sweetheart for 13 years! No, we aren't married....yet.
I was a high school teacher for four years and have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction.
When you combine the two together you get the foundation that Wren & Rose Photography was built on: finding the beauty of owning who you are and falling in love with your true authentic self. If you are like me, you may have struggled with finding the beauty within yourself. With the constant societal pressures of what you should look like, how you should act, and what path in life you should take, it can be hard to be brave enough to own who you truly are. In my business, I strive to help people embrace their true & authentic self, own their imperfections, and let their confidence bloom.
Photography, for me, is a creative space that gives me purpose and has gotten me through really tough times in my life. From a small passion project, Wren & Rose has now evolved into the business of my dreams. Thank you all for giving me the opportunity and courage to go after my dreams. Oh, and don't forget....
“Abby took both of our daughters senior pictures this fall and to say the pictures were amazing is an understatement!!!! She was able to beautifully capture our girls in the most incredible settings. The pictures reflected their personalities perfectly, and we could feel the smiles coming from each shot. Both of our girls loved working with her, and we all could not be more thrilled about the experience and the incredible photographs we will treasure for a lifetime. We cannot recommend her enough!!”
"She is extremely kind-hearted and one of the most genuine people I have gotten to know! She has a super comforting presence and helps guide you through your photography session. She offers tons of posing direction, location guidance, and advice throughout the process. Her editing style is electric and curated for each photoshoot to enhance you and the photographs. Abby will go above and beyond to ensure you are delighted with every aspect of your session with her. She is incredible and I cannot recommend her enough!”
“Abby photographed my proposal and not only captured beautiful photos, but made a stressful and exciting process super fun and enjoyable. I honestly think that a photographer's ability to connect with their subject is one of the most important traits and Abby exceeding even my highest expectations. She helped calm my nerves, plan the perfect shots, and delivered a phenomenal product. I would recommend Wren & Rose for any photography need.”
“We have used Wren & Rose Photography for two years in a row to capture our family photos and would do anything to make sure we have a standing appointment in her books for years to come. Not only is her editing stunning, but Abby has a way of making you feel like family (even through the strangeness of a pandemic) and her talents can easily be mistaken for absolute magic. Not to mention how accommodating and flexible she is; we had to reschedule due to bad weather a few times and got an entire shoot in right before a downpour! Our whole house is filled with her work and we wouldn’t have it any differently.”
"Oh my gosh, we just love Abby! Yes, we, my whole entire family looks forward to her amazing photos. It can be awkward and intimidating to be in front of the camera, but not with Abby! She makes you feel like you are hanging out with one of your best friends and manages to capture the most timeless photos. I could go on for ages about all of the things I love about Wren & Rose Photography, so I will leave you with this, I fly from Atlanta to Chicago every year just to have Abby take our photos every year!
