I don’t remember exactly how long ago it was, but I’m going to guess it’s been 5 years or so that I’ve known Abbey. We first met at a local photographer’s meetup where we were exchanging headshots for each other. I got paired up with Abbey, who is an incredible photographer herself, and we made our way through a park photographing each other. Abbey was so happy, joyful, and fun to be around. I remember her husband, Raf, standing off to the side and observing while also complimenting her in between. This summer when Abbey contacted me to do anniversary portraits of the two of them, I was THRILLED to have the opportunity to photograph them together. They are such a wonderful, fun, lively, friendly, hilarious couple and I knew that our time spent photographing their session around Yale University was going to be a blast.
