Love. Art. Moments. Photography is the culmination of them all. My job is to attain this in an artistic & thoughtful way. Enchanted back in time thru that photo.
My love for photography flourished while living in NYC + Brooklyn. While in Maine, I fell in love with weddings. Now with two little boys, I am passionate about portraits.
I can't wait to hear from you whatever your moment may be...

"We have used Jessica Abbey for our family photos for the past couple of years and have been so impressed with not only the quality of the pictures, but also how well she designs the shoots and works with our two small children! She has patience, vision and an amazing eye for detail. We love working with Jessica and think she is the best in town!!"

"Jessica is absolutely wonderful! From the day we met her for our consultation through our continued communication post wedding, she has been professional, timely, creative and kind. She put my husband and I at ease in front of the camera and the end result was amazing. She was able to wrangle our large family at the wedding effectively and efficiently. She listened to our vision and made it come to life. Her second shooter was also a joy to work with. I highly recommend Jessica!"

"We were very impressed with how well Jessica worked with the kids. We have a 9 year old, 7 year old and a newly 1 year old and she was able to make them all look at the camera and to really smile. She was great with our family and worked with our schedules. We will be hiring her in the future to do more of our family photos."

"We are SO happy we chose Jessica as our photographer! From the beginning through the end of wedding planning, she was kind, organized, helpful, creative, and easy to communicate with. She spent time beforehand scoping out our ceremony and reception venues, as well as stops we'd planned to make for photos. When it ended up downpouring instead, she kept calm and found a perfect place for photos under an awning outside the church. All of our photos truly ended up way better than we could have imagined!"

"Jessica is an amazing photographer and a wonderful person! I was so impressed by her on our wedding day as well as when we received our wedding photos. I was overwhelmed with how many amazing photos we had. The photos are everything I could have hoped for! And Not to mention she photographed our wedding just a few weeks after becoming a new mom! Can you say super hero ?!"
