Dawn & Trent's Wedding
When my son and his fiancé decided to get married I contacted Abby Schafer to see if she was available to photograph their wedding. She was my first choice and I was so happy that she had that date open. I had seen her work and loved her creative approach. She met Trent and Dawn at Chagrin River Park for the first time to take their engagement pictures. They both said that she immediately put them at ease, and they could relax and be themselves with her. They loved the engagement pictures and remarked how professional and personable she is to work with. When the wedding day arrived Abby went over and beyond what was expected of a photographer. She had sent Dawn a schedule to follow for when the various pictures would be taken. She was unbelievably organized and maintained a calm and supportive approach. This demeanor was so welcomed at a time when things can feel a little crazy at a wedding. Not only have the photos turned out beautifully.... but I’m having a hard time deciding which ones I want to have put on canvas, there are so many awesome ones to choose from. But here’s some other amazing things I noticed about Abby....I saw her pinning a dress for one of the bridesmaids, she handed out the corsages and pinned boutonnières on the groomsmen, she had bobby pins to help with hair malfunctions, and she handled every challenge with confidence and friendliness keeping us all calm. Abby Schafer, you are the “bomb”! I would give you a 100 star rating if that was an option. Would I recommend you to others... ABSOLUTELY! Thank you so much!!

Paige & James' Wedding
It's hard to summarize our experience with Abby in one word, but if we had to it would be: authentic. Abby captured us - our emotions, our feelings, our Big Day - so genuinely and artfully. We are ecstatic that we were able to work with her. From the first meeting, down to the last detail, Abby was a great resource and an added brain for us as we planned every last detail and organized every item. She knew to ask questions we would never think of, and it was a great asset to have all of her wedding experience to bounce ideas off of. Abby was always communicative, professional, and organized in every aspect of her work and correspondence with us. She was always consistent and timely, and reached out for any interim items. I loved the way her and her team worked on our wedding day, we barely noticed them - it is not the personality of my husband or I to have a full scale production. With Abby we got genuine moments between us, and our loved ones without "getting the absolute perfect shot" being the focus of our day. Abby got the absolute perfect shot without us even noticing it was happening at the time. We purchased both a wedding photo package from her, as well as videography. We love both. The pictures were varied, true to our personalities, and plentiful. The video has been such fun for us to watch to see moments the other person may have missed, and to experience our wedding from the perspective of our guests. I cannot imagine having worked with anyone else to capture such a special day in our lives. Abby and her team comes highly recommended by us, our families, and guests!

Abby Schafer it was an absolute honor to be able to book you in such short notice for our engagement photos and wedding day! Without you, we wouldn’t have had a seamstress, a hair stylist, a time keeper, a counselor, a friend or the ability to get the best photos of one of our most memorable days of our lives! You truly have a passion for collecting people’s most precious moments! Thank you so much for the amazing professional you are!

Abby was absolutely above and beyond amazing! From my engagement pictures to a boudoir session to our wedding day! I could not have made it through all of this with out her! She was there every time I had a ridiculous question she was honest and made suggestions I would have never thought of to help ensure we got the best photos possible which was SO important to me! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer she truly is wonderful and I highly recommend her for any and all of your special life events!

We couldn’t be happier that we chose Abby Schafer to photograph our daughter’s first birthday session! From the moment I corresponded with Abby inquiring about a potential session, I knew she was the photographer that I wanted to work with. She replied to my message within the hour and answered all of my questions promptly leading up to the session. Not only did she take some of the most special pictures we have of our daughter to date, but she also included family shots in the session. These photos are ones that we will treasure forever! During the session, Abby was so incredibly sweet with my daughter – so much so that she is smiling in almost every picture! That’s quite a feat with a not yet one year old! It was such a pleasure to work with Abby, and we will definitely use her again in the future!

Paige & James' Engagement Session
I am beyond thrilled with our engagement pictures from Abby - they are perfect in every way. I am so amazed with how she was able to perfectly capture our personalities in every shot, and how true they were to our relationship. That's my favorite part about her work, her photographs show so much emotion and depth. Our engagement pictures turned out exactly the way we had wanted and I honestly do not think we could be happier. She was even able to work really well with our adorable brat of a dog and those pictures ended up being some of my favorites. Abby is very adaptable, a true professional, and she has a gift for photography. I'm EVEN more excited for our wedding knowing she will be photographing it! Her business comes highly recommended from me!

Breanna & Kevin's Wedding
I can't possibly put into words how AMAZING Abby and her team are. She did our engagement pictures and covered our wedding in July and I can assure you, you will not be disappointed by choosing them. I am thrilled to say that we have found the photographer that we want to be with us for every milestone going forward. Not only is her work stunning, but she ensures that your day is stress-free and will take charge of any situation in the most professional and graceful way. Abby and Bianca also did a highlight video of our entire wedding which makes us tear every time we watch it. It was wonderful to have the option for them to shoot it, because it was much cheaper than hiring a videographer (as just as good, if not better!) and we didn't feel like we were being paparazzied on our wedding day. You can tell that Abby and her team are doing what they love, and that shines through their work. You couldn't pick a better photographer and team!

Rachael & Logan's Wedding
Abby was the most wonderful photographer! There aren't enough words to describe Abby and her work. She was so helpful setting up a plan for my wedding and making sure we were on the same page. We met a few times before my wedding date and she was always organized. The first time we met, I knew I wanted Abby as my wedding photographer. She has the sweetest personality and is very easy to talk to and get along with. She genuinely seems to care about her clients and does every thing she can to make the day perfect. The day of she was the biggest help and really made sure the wedding ran smoothly. Abby and her second photographer were the perfect mix of professional and caring. One memorable moment with Abby and Bianca was that the limo window was stuck open and it was pouring rain and so to keep me from getting wet, they both covered the window with their arms. They got soaked in order to keep me dry. If that doesn't tell you how much Abby cares about her clients I'm not sure what will! Finally, Abby provided us with the most beautiful pictures and video we could've asked for! She emailed the pictures in a timely manner and was really good about communicating when they would be done. In all, I highly recommend Abby! She was better than I ever expected and I can't wait to use her to capture other big life events.

Marissa & Matt's Wedding
I do not have enough great things to say about Abby! From our engagement photos to our wedding day, Abby was my number one go-to. Having plenty of experience, she helped me plan my day and keep us on track to make sure our day and night were flawless. She absolutely saw my vision and brought it to life! Not having a wedding planner, I would email Abby several times during the wedding planning process, and she was always quick to respond. She laid out my day of timeline and suggested the best order to do things during our reception (I had no idea). Our day was planned so perfectly, it could not have gone better.
Abby is so much more than a photographer, she has a passion for weddings! She helped place my veil, put on my shoes, and even put bandaids on my feet! Aside from Abby being an awesome person, I absolutely love her work! She has such a unique vision and made us look and feel so beautiful! She made us feel comfortable during our engagement shoot. She also did a boudoir shoot for me and I absolutely loved it! I was super nervous beforehand, but again Abby made me feel comfortable and the pictures came out so classy! My husband loves them! We can not wait to see all of our wedding photos, we know Abby will make them look amazing! Overall, I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Abby to anyone needing a photographer!

Abby was so great to work with! She is very friendly, flexible, and professional and she is prepared for anything a newborn might do during the shoot! Her work is incredible and speaks for itself as you can see on her page! I'm so happy we got to have Abby photograph our little family! Thanks Abby!

Lindsay & Kevin's Wedding
I can not emphasize enough the immense value and skill that Abby Schafer offers in her wedding package. She took care of my wife and I every step of the way on our wedding day, and we have every moment beautifully captured through the photos taken by Abby and Bianca. On our big day, they weren't vendors to us, they were true friends.
I could give endless reasons as to why you should choose Abby Schafer for your wedding or photography session, but meet with Abby to find out for yourself!
