Orignally from South-East London I now live in York with my husband and son. I set up Abby Warren Photography in 2011. I always loved taking photos, but I was actually a professional actor for 25 years. Being an actor gives me an understanding about what its like being be on your side of the camera. I know what an agent or a casting directors needs might be, but I also know that having your headshots taken it is not always a comfortable experience… I hate having my photo taken! Because of my own fear of being photograghed I have made sure that I am not an intrusive photographer, even if it is one on one headshot session, I make sure that you don’t feel vulnerable or uncomfortable. You can find out more about headshot session here
When I started out I was a headshot photographer, which was a natural progression from acting. I have of course tried other areas of photography, but for me people are the most interesting subject. when I first did weddings I felt that it was similar to theatre and the idea that I could weave a story through images and tell a couples love story was so exciting. I am confident with large groups of people which is very helpful at weddings. To find out more about what to expect on the day view my weddings page.
Whether it’s headshots or your wedding day, my aim is that you to feel confident and happy. I create a relaxing, fun space in which my clients can express themselves.
