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!

I have been waiting and waiting for this gal to join the world. I think I was ready for her before her momma was. And I was so lucky to be there the moment she made her arrival. My plane literally landed in AZ and I headed straight to the hospital. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. I am so in love with her and so happy for her mommy and daddy. Just had to share a little peek of miss Riley....and can we all just agree that her hair is amazing 👶🏻❤️ @foilandink
I'm leaving for a week on Sunday to head to Arizona and have a list of about 83 things to do, so naturally I'm laying in bed picking a new outfit for my @bitmoji and settling in to take a big nap. It's amazing to me how incredibly lazy I can be sometimes...and how insanely productive I can be at others. Maybe after a good nap I can get a handful of those 83 things done before it's time to head to the summertime state 😎🌴☀️

Welcome to my morning 👧🏼😫🤦🏼‍♀️
We've been playing hairdresser this morning, which really just means she has been pulling my hair for the last 45 minutes 💇🏻😫 She kinda does hair the way Monica Gellar does back rubs.
But I'm also sitting here thinking about all these things that she and I do that I don't really ever remember doing with my mom. Her styling my hair, me doing hers, playing dress up, playing makeup, dressing the same (capsule wardrobes at their finest) and so many other things. It's such a bittersweet feeling. She tells me all the time that she wants to the mommy so she can be like me. I don't remember ever wanting to play mommy as a little girl, so it helps me feel like I must be doing something right in her eyes. I am so cherishing this second chance at a mommy and daughter relationship.
Can I tell you a secret? Most days I loathe instagram. When you own a business and have a social media account it can be this never ending battle of trying to post the right thing. Can't talk too much about my kids because that annoys my clients. Can't talk too much about business because that annoys my friends. Especially with this account I feel a tugging at my heart lately to share more about motherhood. Cause you see I am kind of making it up as I'm going along...and somehow it's working out pretty well. So I think for now this space is going to be all about how I'm raising these little weirdos to be pretty amazing humans and all the stuff that happens when I'm not at work. My mom a good way 😉. So if you want the business tips you should follow @akcommunity. Or if you want to see the photography you should follow @akstudiodesign. But if you want to watch me making it up in motherhood then I'm happy to have you here ❤️

20 second photo shoot in our same old Sunday clothes. Happy Easter folks 🐰🐣
This Easter morning I can't help but think of all that will happen when the Savior comes again. All of those who will be made whole, loved ones who will be reunited, wrongs that will be made right, broken hearts and broken bodies that will be healed, and a peace that will be all encompassing. I am grateful for this life and this gospel, and a Savior who died for each and every one of us so that we may enjoy the sweet blessings of eternal life. #happyeaster #heisrisen
Life skills via the brothers 🙄Pretty soon she'll be peeing in the backyard. #missivyardella #thinksshesabrother
Three reasons I'm over-sharing these lovely images tonight...first off today is @andyjackimiller's birthday and he is pretty much one of the best guys around. So happy birthday Andy 🎂! Second, pretty much any day this little baby is going to make her appearance and I can't wait! I'm going to be in AZ on her due date so I'm crossing my fingers 🤞🏻she makes her arrival while I'm there! And third, this week I'm shooting 16 of my favorite mommies in this gorgeous space and I can't wait to be here again ❤️ so there you go and enjoy!!!
Yesterday I was there to capture the tender moments of a dear friend and her children as they buried their husband and father. Something that came far too soon. It was such a hard day with so many consuming moments. There wasn't a single moment that didn't seem absolutely surreal. Today I woke up feeling as heavy as the branches of my favorite tree that is weighed down nearly to the ground with freshly fallen snow. I can't imagine what this morning was like for her and how the days ahead will be. But yesterday I also saw an ocean of love and support that I know will buoy her up as she takes these steps into the unknown. But even in the midst of so much heartache and darkness, I can't help but be so grateful for our Savior and that this isn't the end of their family. I know they will be together again and that when any of us are going through sorrow we can call on the Lord to help get us through these parts that nearly brake us. I have thought too many times of those who stood beside her and mourned with her. We are commanded to mourn with those who mourn and I know that she will find comfort, strength and peace in all the hearts who feel this loss alongside of her. I even think the unwavering rain yesterday was like tears from heaven that came straight from our Heavenly Father who I am sure mourns alongside with her and the pain she is feeling. I read recently there are times in our lives when we need to be rescued and others that we do the rescuing, and I just pray as I have watched the last few days unfold that I can see with eyes more open to those who need me and that I may be someone who can help lift the burden in their times of need. #mournwiththosewhomourn #familiescanbetogetherforever #eternalfamilies
So for what seems like years we have been looking for a studio...and I think we have finally found one 😍 but it gets even better it doesn't just have the potential to be an AMAZING studio but it would also make a perfect spot for small art studios/offices and co-working space for creatives and an amazing teaching space! Crossing my fingers 🤞🏻 And do you know anyone looking for an exclusive studio/office in Davis County but 10'ish minutes from downtown SLC? Would you please tag them below!
Have you met my daughter? This is pretty much it...dictator is literally the perfect word for her. She runs the show around here. But she is also the happiest, kindest, most loving and light filled person I have ever been around. Raise your hands if you are raising a tiny dictator too! #motherhood #toddlers #tiredmommy
My heart is so heavy to hear of the passing of a dear client and friends husband yesterday. I have struggled for the words and there are just none. Her life has come crashing down as she faces life as a single mom to four little ones. Please keep this sweet family in your prayers. I am grateful for eternal families, but know that she needs our support as her entire life is about to change. If you can, please donate to their go fund me account as this sweet mother begins to navigate this life alone. #linkinprofile #eternalfamilies #familiescanbetogetherforever @ldibble21
We live in this world that is so focused on money, so focused on success, so focused on attention...but really, none of that jazz matters or will really even happen if you don't first love people. You have to care about others. You have to want to build them up in the way that you can. Maybe that is through kindness, or beautiful photographs, or by helping them better their lives. There are a million ways to be valuable...we just have to find the one that fits us best. #jimcarrey
Packing up to head to the sun and I'm this excited about it! 😎☀️ #springbreak #vitamind #tanlines
