“I looked around to see how I was going to plan that day, where I was going to take the pictures, where I was going to take that key shot that was going to take my business to the next level…”
Today’s guest is wedding photographer Abby Jiu. Abby is sharing how she was able to jump from shooting $500 weddings to six figure weddings, and she also shares a few tips for getting published.
More about Abby Jiu:
Abby Jiu has had a passion for gorgeous imagery and creating art since before she can remember. But in 2009, she picked up a camera and hasn’t put it down since. Her style is the best of both worlds, using film and digital cameras alike to catch the stolen glances, fits of laughter, and heartfelt emotions sprinkled among the ever-important beautiful details that make each wedding day unique. She loves having the opportunity to get to know her brides and grooms, and uses these relationships and her decade-plus of experience to capture precious memories in an intentional way.
When she’s not behind the camera, Abby fills her time with her supportive husband Jamey, their lovable bulldog Penelope, and sweet son Cooper—who like her is always taking in the world around him. Abby loves D.C. but also revels in traveling abroad, finds relaxation in the form of eating something sweet while watching TV on the couch, and has a great appreciation for interior design and fashion.
You can see her work on the pages of Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, Southern Weddings, Washingtonian Bride & Groom, Southern Living Weddings, People, Inside Weddings, and more. She’s received numerous accolades, including being named one of Martha Stewart Weddings’ Top Photographers and a Washingtonian Editor’s Pick.
