Abby Jiu has had a passion for gorgeous imagery and creating art since before she can remember. Her style is the best of both worlds, using film cameras and digital cameras to catch the stolen glances, fits of laughter, and heartfelt emotions sprinkled among the ever-important beautiful details that make each couple’s wedding day unique. She loves having the opportunity to get to know her couples, watching the personalized touches come together and using the relationship she’s built to preserve precious memories on film.
When she’s not behind the camera, Abby fills her time with her husband Jamey, a bossy bulldog named Lola, and traveling abroad. She’s received numerous accolades for her work, including being named one of Martha Stewart Weddings’ Top Photographers and Washingtonian Editor’s Pick. You can see her work on the pages of Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, Southern Weddings, Washingtonian Bride & Groom, and Southern Living Weddings and many more.
Lisa Ziesing has loved wedding photography ever since she can remember. The moment clicked when she first discovered the rich colors, depth, and crisp feeling that only film photography can create. She’s in love with the details, getting to know the couple’s story as well as the talented teams it takes to bring a wedding from a few ideas to the couple’s big day. She loves how the people she gets to work with push her to go a step further and take her creativity to new heights.
Film photography has taught her to slow down and think about each photo before she takes it, giving her work a feeling of intention and also enabling her to read a room and know when the perfect moment is coming her way. Chances are you’ll find her with a smile on her face and a tear in her eye as the couple exchanges vows–and you’ll have the gorgeous ceremony images to show for it. Her work has been published in Martha Stewart Magazine and Washingtonian Bride & Groom.
