One of the best ways to get a feel for me, my style, and my business is to hear it straight from others who have worked with me...
Here are a few of my past brides and their thoughts about our work together.

"When you think she isn’t watching, she will capture the most treasured candids"



When Cullen and I got engaged, one of the first things I wanted to focus on was choosing an amazing photographer. When we first met Abbey, she connected with us immediately and saw the vision we wanted! She was spunky, fun and outgoing. She made us feel so comfortable. She captures moments perfectly. When you're not thinking she is watching, she will take the most treasured candids. She has a way of showing true love through the camera! She let Cullen and I be ourselves. She truly cares about each photo by getting the perfect lighting and location. She cares about getting to know the couple. She cares about making everyone feel comfortable, while having fun and laughing along the way. She cares about every detail. She cares about communication throughout the process. She takes time to get your love story depicted through the camera. She will do whatever it takes to be positive the bride and groom are satisfied. She is there for you and your fiancée to make sure you feel stress-free knowing your photos will turn out beautiful. The best decision was having Abbey as our photographer. The memories we have from our wedding are captured through photos. These photos will forever be the best gift for me and Cullen since we can relive our wedding day everyday!

"She made sure everything was perfect and captured every little thing down to the last detail!"



Abbey is a dream! I can honestly say that there is no one else I would have rather shared this special time in my life with. Hiring her to shoot our wedding was hands down the best decision we have made. She is so much more than an amazing wedding photographer. She made sure everything was perfect and captured every little thing down to the last detail! All of our photos were absolutely stunning and she captured everything I could have ever imagined. I have gained a lifelong friend and I am so incredibly thankful that I had the privilege of working with her. I cannot recommend her enough! She is honestly, my absolute favorite!

"Abbey has an incredible gift of making you feel so comfortable and beautiful while she's working.."



When I was trying to decide on a wedding photographer, all I had to do was look at Abbey's pictures to know that there was something special about her. As the day of our first shoot approached, I was nervous because I'm not an experienced picture taker and I didn't want that to show. My worrying was pointless though! Abbey has an incredible gift of making you feel so comfortable and beautiful while she's working. Our pictures captured our true relationship because it was so easy to instantly open up to her. That's the magic behind Abbey's talent. When she takes a picture, she captures the emotion behind it. That is a priceless gift and I will forever be grateful to Abbey for giving us such clear memories of how we felt before and during our wedding, not just the things we did. She is incredible!

"Looking back through our wedding photos is like re-living our special day and it is priceless."



Working with Abbey was fun, laid-back, and exciting all at the same time! My favorite part about working with Abbey was knowing that I was going to love the images she would capture. Her talent for making a connection with brides on a personal level and photographing beautifully makes her brand incredibly unique. Looking back through our wedding photos is like re-living our special day and it is priceless. I will recommend her to all future brides I come into contact with because I can trust that they will love their photos as much as I love mine.

"We knew we could count on her."



From all the wedding advice I received upon my engagement the best by far was to be selective about your wedding photographer. While some things only last for the 'big day' your pictures will last forever. My husband and I could not have been more thrilled working with Abbey and the memories we received. She was a blast to work with and set our minds at easy during stressful moments. We knew we could count on her. We had some newly blended families at our wedding and we were so impressed with Abbey and the time she took before hand to know who was who and not make anything awkward. We love her and can't wait to work with her again!"

"I love how our wedding photos will look timeless for years to come."



We loved working with Abbey! My fiance was not looking forward to taking pictures, but she made it so fun and he really enjoyed our sessions with her! She took the time to figure out what style I was imagining, looked through my Pinterest wedding boards and got every photo I wanted! I love her clean photography style, and I love how our wedding photos will look timeless for years to come. After the wedding day, we got several comments from friends and relatives about how impressed they were with how she handled the wedding day. I've heard of group pictures being really stressful with so many people at the temple, but I was never stressed! She was organized, orderly, and knew the most efficient ways to get all of the group pictures done quickly without confusion. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!

"Abbey was there from the beginning to end!"



Abbey was there from the beginning to end! She was able to see my vision for what I wanted and totally made it happen! Both me and my husband loved working with her because she was so fun to shoot with and helped us act completely natural and relaxed.

"In every session she made us feel so comfortable"



I loved having Abbey as our photographer! In every session she made us feel so comfortable, so we were able to get shots that really showed who we were as a couple. And her edits are beautiful! We were so happy we chose someone who was able to capture every detail of our wedding day with such talent. The photos are priceless. If we had to do it over again, we would choose Abbey in a second!

"She takes stress off the brides' shoulders and is much more than a photographer, but a friend!"



Abbey Kyhl is the way to go no doubt. I value talent and Abbey Kyhl is exactly that. She is very personable and fun to work with. She takes stress off the brides' shoulders and is much more than a photographer, but a friend!

“Are you still a photographer?” I’ve been asked this question a lot lately and it’s become the million dollar question. Being a photographer has been a part of my core identity for as long as being a mother has been. The lines are so blurred between photography being something I do and who I am. And the reality is that the answer is “I’m not sure.” My life has taken some wonderful turns lately and I’m finding there is only so much of me to go around. I can’t be at every ball game and every speaking engagement and every wedding. There just isn’t enough time. Photography has changed for me so much over the last few years and I have tried to make a decision and declare an answer but I keep getting this overwhelming impression to not rush because the answer is coming. It’s just not coming right now. So I’m making space and slowing my pace and waiting on the right choice. Im simplifying things (which is why we took down the AK Studio & Design instagram). I’m taking each thing on as it feels right. I’m not ready to put the camera down yet, but I’m also not booking in the same way I have over the last decade. There are certain people I would never say no to. (You know who you are 😉) People who aren’t just clients, not even just friends, but people who I love like family because they have done that same thing for me. Who’ve been cheering me on since our paths first crossed and I can’t imagine not being in each others lives. But there are also new opportunities coming my way that I feel prompted to follow. So stay tuned to see where I’m headed, it’s anybody’s guess at this point 💛 #utahphotography #utahweddingphotographer #slowyourpace #makespace
There are so many cute journaling bibles out there and I have been looking for a BOM version forever. Yesterday, I stumbled across this and am totally in love! I had never heard of @lineuponline but I can’t wait to get my hands on a Book Of Mormon that has enough space for journaling, doodling, and taking notes. August can’t come soon enough!!! The gals at @lineuponline have a kick-starter that is so close if you want to snag yours. Seriously so excited. I added a link in my profile if you want to check it out 💛💛💛 #bookofmormon #journalingscripture #lds #shethatseeks #searchthescriptures #mormon
Someday when Ivy marries #princegeorge, this will be me 👋🏻👋🏻 #royalwedding #hereicome
#prayforsantefe. Each time I see one of these, because for some unimaginable reason these are becoming more and more common in our world, my heart just drops. I posted on my Facebook page awhile ago and share the same thought here. It’s not about politics. It’s not about guns. It’s about keeping our kids safe. We have to make a change. 💛 #schoolsafety
PHOTOGRAPHY FRIENDS!!! Have you ever found yourself looking for that place? The place where you feel like you belong? The place where people
I sat at the ball field tonight with tears in my eyes. I could barely keep them from streaming down my face. I sat there watching my boy. My sweet, wonderful, amazing boy. I watched tonight the power of a good coach and the effect they can have on a player. Last year this kid was so excited to play baseball, to be done with tball, to be in the same league as his brother. His excitement bubbled over, but didn’t last long. Yelling, criticism, and belittling soon crushed all that excitement. I watched in one season a boy who loved a sport go in the complete opposite direction, never wanting to play again. But we pushed him, and bargained with him, and encouraged him to give it one more shot. And tonight, I watched that little excited boy come back to life. All because of a good coach. A coach who cares. A coach who encourages. A coach who realizes that instilling a love for the game is what is most important. I watched a boy who’s light had totally gone out be on fire. A double. Another double. He did so well and most importantly he had fun and he felt important. I am so grateful for his new coach who I’m sure has no idea the impact he is having on this little shy boy and how much it means to this mommas heart. #coach #baseball #forloveofthegame
“Your success as a family, our success as a society, depends not on what happens in the white house but what happens in your house.” A beautiful legacy from a First Lady who put her family first 💛 #barbarabush #firstlady #rip

Let us remember why He gave his life. Because of love. Because of mercy. And because we desperately need them both. - Liz Curtis Higgs
The end is the best part 💋💋 #nosound #ivystradesecrets
We are now almost exclusively having our groceries delivered or picked up 🙌🏻 I forgot to click the “don’t replace” button and these minty delights replaced my usual cookie order. They are seriously so good 🍪 I asked my kids what we should have for dinner tonight and everyone yelled “choose your own adventure” to which I felt a big #momwin. So while they’re enjoying nachos, mac & cheese, and chicken nuggets...I’m sitting here eating cookies for dinner. So that’s my Monday night in a nutshell, how’s yours going?
Borrowed this from a friend 😂😂😂 hope you’re all enjoying the concert! @crewandco #superbowl @justintimberlake #concert

It’s so awesome when my shower days line up with my social calendar! 🙌🏻 don’t mind the big zit on my forehead. It happens to us all.
Losing my mind just a little bit. This guy who used to be the calm, the peacemaker, the lost in thought, the daydreamer, the quiet in our family is now so LOUD 🙉 I don’t know what happened but it’s like one day he woke up and the switch had flipped and now he is all NOISE. He’s even getting in trouble at school for too much talking to his neighbors...it’s like we are living in an alternate universe. I need my calm boy back. He’s the only peace I had in this busy life. Hopefully all this LOUD is just a phase 🤞🏻
