    I am so happy I chose Abacus Studios! From my first meeting with Alex, email exchanges with Damian to my actual wedding day was a great experience. Michelle was awesome and worked really hard to capture every moment of my wedding. The photo booth was a hit as well.

    Abacus Studios was AMAZING! From the moment we met Alex, we knew we wanted to work with them; he was easy to talk to and understood what we wanted. They also offered very reasonably priced packages as compared to others we had researched. Then the process leading up to our wedding day was very simple. We had selected Michelle and I can not be happier that we did!! Words cannot describe how fabulous Michelle was! She felt like an old friend and was so incredible to work with during the day; she made everything so easy and seamless. Our bridal party, family and friends all commented on how terrific she was. She captured every special shot we asked for and so much more!! Our pictures are gorgeous and I don't know how we will chose! In conclusion, we highly recommend Abacus Studios and Michelle... you will not be sorry!!

    Instant connection with Alex during our first meeting. There was no pressure to sign a contract with him and before I left his office a contract was signed. I love Abacus Studios! The staff are very professional, all my questions were answered timely no matter what time I sent an email. They were extremely accommodating. I used Abacus for my Engagement Dinner and my wedding. I love the way my photos came out especially my wedding photos. Additional services used was photo booth and step and repeat. My wedding guest loved both options.

    Loved working with Alex. Doug and Damian were on time, and they were patient and funny throughout the day. We really enjoyed working with them. Our photos are so pretty and we have so much to choose from. I just got married 10 days ago and I'm already viewing my images. Thanks!

    From the moment we met Alex we knew we wanted them to photograph our wedding. There professionalism made us feel very comfortable from start to finish. Michelle was our photographer and her personality fit right in with the wedding party. She made the day that much more special. She helped us both get dressed and photographed it in a way that made us feel comfortable. She captured every moment of the day in an elegant way. If we had a special request she made it happen. It was truly a pleasure to work with Michelle and the team at abacus!

    We had a great time with our photographer, she was a lot of fun to work with and captured us to a T. Our engagement pictures and wedding pictures were beautiful, she was able to make the best use of all spaces and lighting to get the best pictures.

    Alex, the owner of Abacus Studio, is awesome. He is super friendly, nice, and worked with us on our budget. Great with responding to questions and concerns. We got to work with Doug, Michelle, and Damian. Michelle and Damian were both super friendly and nice and laughed with us through the whole process which made the day feel carefree and lovely. Doug was definitely more serious but was great at directing shots and making sure he got the best shot. We truly enjoyed working with this team. You can tell it's a small business and they remember their clients and care about their special day. I'm so happy I didn't go with one of the bigger companies that have a bunch of random photographers. We got a TON of pictures from them after the wedding, they captured our wedding perfectly and we were so happy with the results. They were also SUPER patient and accommodating with all my crazy picture requests (one involved the whole wedding party of 18 people running away from the ocean, and they helped us photoshop a shark jumping out of the ocean haha) Would recommend them to any of our family or friends. We actually miss seeing them because they were so nice haha! Miss you guys and thanks so much for a perfect day!

    I could not have asked for a better photographer and videographer, or for better photos. But let me start at the the beggining. Alex, who is one of the owners of the studio, was very approachable and met with my family for a few consultations. He was very willing to work within our budget, and to give us the photos of our dreams. On the day of the wedding, our photographer Michelle and and our videographer Damian both arrived bright and early and went to work. They captured every moment beautifully and were very professional. They made my entire bridal party have fun and feel comfortable. I reviewed the post wedding proofs and our photos came out amazing! Michelle captured every shot. Also, we used a photo booth for our wedding. The guests loved it and had a blast! I would recommend Abacus to every bride and groom out there looking to have an exceptional team for their special event.

    Let me start this off with I hate pictures of myself so I knew finding a photographer for our wedding was going to be a challenge. Abacus studio was the first place we spoke with and they set the bar VERY high for the other studios we met with. I was picky in the sense that I don't like staged pictures, I think they look set up and not genuine but Alex and team assured me that they would take quality pictures in a style that I would love, and they were right. We worked with Michelle and she was AMAZING. She fit right in with our wedding party and didn't even bat an eye when the groomsman were getting a little crazy while taking pictures. The pictures she took were amazing and I loved every single one of them, it was hard to only pick a handful for our book! She made me feel comfortable taking the pictures and also gave great suggestion of different places we could go to get great shots. I had a little issue that happened while getting out of the car to go to the church (car grease all down my dress) and I was very upset to say the least. She calmed me down (so not part of her job description) and made sure not 1 picture showed the black grease and she delivered! I would recommend (and have) Abacus studio to anyone who is looking for a top notch studio that is responsive and answers questions long after your special day is over.

    Abacus had done the photos for my sisters wedding in 2010 so I knew that I wanted to use them for my wedding. Alex was super laid back and able to meet with me with our budget. Michelle was fantastic with the photos and how she interacted with us all. She was my professional dress fluffer al evening haha. Damian was incredible with the videos and we can't wait to see the video. The pictures came out better then I even imagined. We can't decide on which pictures to use for our album because they are all so nice! Poor Michelle and Damian had to put up with our rowdy crazy firefighters and family. They were great!! I couldn't be happier. Thanks for getting Michael dressed for the cake cutting!!!!

    I could not say enough great things about Damien. I actually was re-married and used him for my second wedding as well. He is amazing at what he does, he is professional and gets all of the great shots on video!

    Michelle and Damien from ABACUS studios were amazing! i could not have asked for a better photographer and videographer. my whole family loved them. Abacus is extremely reasonably priced and does a fantastic job. our pictures came out amazing and they were so flexible and friendly to everyone. they took whatever pictures we wanted and stayed later than they needed to just to capture our cake cutting. we got our online gallery a week after the wedding and everyone loved the photos. i cannot wait for the video but a huge thanks to abacus!

    My husband and I were very happy with Abacus' photography and videography services for our wedding. Michelle and Damien were a pleasure to work with and we were thrilled with how the photos turned out.

    What was really nice was that we were able to pick the services we wanted a la carte, rather then having to buy a package deal. This made working with Abacus both easy and affordable. We would highly recommend using them for any photography needs.

    Best wishes,

    Alicia & Michael

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience working with Abacus Studios for our wedding photography! Michelle captured all the special moments we could have imagined and more. She was flexible when we decided to change the plans last minute and made us and our families feel comfortable. She even helped during the hectic moments of the getting ready rush when an extra pair of hands to zip dresses was useful! Our photographs are beautiful and I couldn't imagine having used anyone different to photograph our wedding day. From the start, everyone at Abacus Studios was very helpful in answering any and all of our questions, no matter how silly they may have been!
