about the photographer

Abby & ShawnAbby Schenck Wooldridge is a self-taught photographer who developed an interest in photography during high school.  A reporter/editor on the yearbook staff, she found herself surrounded by photographer friends who frequently teased her that she had chosen the wrong position.  It was after she had taken thousands of pictures for a scrapbook she created for the high school band that she started to think that maybe her photographer friends were on to something.  Once Abby reached college, she rarely went anywhere without her camera; she got tired of seeing a gorgeous sunset just wishing that she had her camera.  She began taking pictures of everything she could: the sky, animals, flowers, trees... the list goes on.  

Nature at its best

Abby’s love of nature shots expanded into a love for all kinds of photography.  She was thrilled to take engagement pictures for her sister and brother-in-law.  In fact, she had so much fun that it was hard to put down the camera at the end of the shoot, and she was already looking for the next opportunity to photograph someone else.  She has since been asked to photograph several different occasions including: weddings, receptions, engagements, bridal showers, baby showers, parties, concerts, church directory pictures, and family portraits.  All of these opportunities have created a hunger for more.  In all of her work, Abby’s desire has been to capture special moments and memories for people.  She has a passion to show others that beauty exists all around them.  Because of that passion, she does not have a formal photography studio. She truly believes that the world is your backdrop, and she can’t wait to help you use it.
