Abba was phenomenal!! The pictures and price are far superior to anyone else in the area!! We looked for wedding photographers but went with Abba in the end and are glad we did!! If I had the opportunity to use them over and over again I would.
Marti and Gary were very helpful on the day of our marriage. They provided assistance in getting ready, answered questions, and very friendly. They took many shots of before, during, and afterwards ceremony. It will be easy to tell a great story with the photos they took. Thank you Marti and Gary! You both were spectacular and thanks for making our day memorable and special.
Gary and Marti really work hard to make sure you get every shot you want, and are super quick on turnaround for the photos! I collected photo ideas during planning and sent them a collection of the shots, which they set up and made sure I got the night of! Our engagement photos are amazing and I can’t wait to get the ones from our wedding! I didn’t even notice them during the reception! I highly recommend!
Excellent service and quality of service. I have great memories from my wedding.
They were wonderful to work with and very professional. I would HIGHLY recommend Abba Photography. After the wedding, I had photos within 4 days, which is a great turn around time.
Gary & Marty did an amazing job photographing our wedding. The pictures turned out beautiful! I highly recommend them!
The pictures are amazing and we absolutely love them all.
Thank you so much for your hard work that day, for your patience with us and for making this day unforgettable for my daughter and her husband with the pictures. You and your wife will be always in our thoughts as our preferred photographer. You are both amazing.
Please extend my word of gratitude to her.
I will get back to you when I decide to do the album. I have been sending pictures to our family and they had words of compliments to your work.
Take care and God Bless you!
Thank YOU BOTH for your professionalism, warmth, and fantastic work at our wedding. Having you both as a part of it helped make it the special day we were hoping for.
We briefly viewed the photos online and are absolutely thrilled with how they came out. They are wonderful! We haven’t decided which ones we want yet for the albums, but will look at them again when we get the disc and make our selections and let you know.
Thank you again for everything… it really was the wedding of our dreams, and you both helped make it come true.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with the service I received from Abba Photography. I stressed for months over hiring a photographer for my wedding, and I contacted and met with several before I found Marti and Gary. I was a distance bride, so I was unable to meet with Marti and Gary personally, but my parents met with them and raved about them the moment they left the meeting. Marti and Gary made them so comfortable that I knew they would be the perfect fit for my wedding. I was able to contact them whenever I needed to and could always count on a speedy response. It was obvious from the moment I arrived at my venue that they are true professionals. We got started right away and we were able to get all of the pictures I wanted. They also worked with my husband and I on the timing of our pictures. We didn’t want to see each other before our ceremony, but wanted to get a lot of our family pictures out of the way. They made sure we got all the pictures we wanted without seeing each other before the ceremony. Our pictures look amazing, the service was wonderful, and I’m so happy that we decided to hire Marti and Gary to photograph our wedding!
Gary and Marti were amazing to work with for our engagement and wedding photos. From day 1, they were always available to answer our questions – promptly and very pleasantly. We were very comfortable taking photos with them, which definitely showed in our pictures. We were very satisfied with the quality of their work. They also showed up to the event on time (and even early!) and worked seamlessly with our videographer and DJ. The speed at which they sent us the online previews and master CD’s was also very impressive! Our friends and family have also commented on the great quality of our engagement and wedding photos. My friend who attended our wedding also used Abba Photography a few years before for her wedding, and her first comment at the wedding was to tell me that I would be 100% satisfied with the quality because they sure were. I would definitely recommend Abba Photography to anyone!
Gary and Marti are true professionals. They are warm, friendly and very personable. Our photos came out wonderful and we really enjoyed working with them during the whole wedding process. On the day of they were able to guide us through the day flawlessly. We are so pleased.
Abba Photography was exactly what we heard about them… Excellent.
Besides the attention to detail, and their professionalism, the button on my suit jacket popped off when we were taking some pictures. To my amazement, Marti pulls out a needle and thread and sews the button back on, in 30 seconds we were back to taking pics. This shows the versatility and preparation that Abba Photography brings to the table, and this makes the biggest difference in the world.
I cannot put into words how awesome Gary and Marti were, my pictures are beautiful, they are very very professional. Marti helped me so much with her years of experience and everyone who have seen our pictures have commented how beautiful they are. I can’t wait to get our actual wedding album. I would HIGHLY recommend and have recommend them to several people already.
Thank you Marti and Gary for capturing our memories of a lifetime.
Gary and Marti Davids are artistic, creative, and professional. It was a pleasure to work with them and they helped to make our wedding day even more special. They took a variety of posed and candid photographs to capture the moments throughout the evening. We highly recommend booking them to photograph your special event!
We did not expect to find anyone quite like Abba. Very professional and thoughtful about all of our needs. On top of it they are truly great people that enjoy what they are doing and really put their heart into their work. Every facet was covered. We wanted some more laid back and artistic shots, odd angles in some cases, we requested – not your average wedding shot lighting, and they really hit all that we would have wanted. Balance between more traditional shots and creative flare. Very hard to pick the best photos because they were all so well shot.
From spending time with them, they picked up on exactly what we wanted.
We were running behind for the wedding which was going to mess up our photo schedule, but Gary and Marty just flowed everything right along managing a solution without blinking or even hinting at a sense of urgency – very important as when it is all happening – the less stress, the more fun, the better the photos.
We did get a deal due to late booking, then were shocked that this included 2 photographers, a husband and wife no less, that just makes it even more special.
Their system for business is so smooth and convenient, that there were absolutely no worries throughout the whole process, we were confident we were in good hands from the first meeting. Real pros, great people, fantastic photos, smooth process, excellent price, you can’t ask for anything else.
Abba was an excellent choice!!!
Gary and Marti were the best!!! We consulted several photographers and they far outshone any others we met. From our engagement sitting to the wedding day, we felt that they were personally invested in us, and that investment showed in the pictures. The pictures were excellent!!!
I cannot tell you what a delight it was to work with Gary and Marti. I would very highly recommend them to everyone. They did an amazing job with both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. Top rate all the way!
They did awesome! the pictures looked great I would use them again!
Yin and Yang
Gary and Marti were just what I expected them to be- GREAT! I had a great experience with them, they did a great job and were very friendly and professional! Thanks so much for making my day special! I would recommend them to everyone!
Abba Photoraphy was the best , very professional staff, efficient,100% of their contract agreement kept. My photos were beautiful and it is my greatest pleasure to recommend them to take your most precious memories photos.
We really enjoyed having Abba Photography as our photographers for our special day. They were very easy to work with and we look forward to working with them again in the future!
I could have never asked for such a better experience. We were able to view our pictures within days online and were so excited to see the moments of our ceremony captured that with everything going on, we missed. The website was so easy to navigate through and the pictures were so beautiful! Marti and Gary we so wonderful and accommodating. The Secret Garden is an Amazing place and we will cherish this experience forever! Thank you!
Gary and Marti aren’t just professionals, they are exceptional. Once we met with them we realized their experience. Everything went according to plan and nothing went wrong. They provided us with on time service all the time. The engagement session was so smooth and the wedding day went like breathe. They do know what they are doing and at the same time they are flexible to address our needs. We couldn’t ask for better team to have.
We remember them every time we look at our wedding pictures, not only because their work was excellent, but also because they are so pleasant.

The quality of the service was perfect. The work was the best we had seen. Gary always called us right back or replied to our emails within the hour. They were extremely professional and seemed to ease their way through our ceremony and reception. We felt like we never saw them and yet the amount and quality of the pictures were incredible. They were friendly, kind, and were there to make sure all our photography needs were met. We would HIGHLY recommend Abba Photography to anyone planning on getting married. Abba will be the photographers we go to when our children come along.
Gary and Marti Davids did an absolutely wonderful job for our wedding! They were always quick to respond to any questions we had and they were always willing to accommodate us in any way. We hired Abba Photography on the spot at our first meeting. They were so friendly and professional, not to mention they had beautiful work. We never even met with another photographer after meeting the Davids. A few months after signing with Abba, we had our engagement portrait session. Gary and Marti lived up to everything we had expected and then some. Our engagement pictures turned out beautifully and they were very good quality. Marti put together an awesome engagement book for us! She is very talented and creative! The same held true for the day of our wedding. They arrived early and both were very professional. Throughout the photographing after the ceremony, Marti continually reminded me to stand up straight–which I needed :)! I am truly thankful for that extra effort on her part because it made our wedding pictures turn out beautifully. The Davids truly care about the quality of the work and put forth the extra effort to make sure we were happy with everything. We were able to request certain places in the gardens where we wanted photographed and they willingly accommodated us. During our reception every time we turned around one of them were snapping pictures making sure to capture every moment of our day. They were very quick to upload our pictures online and get us our DVD. Our pictures turned out very impressive. Not only were they creative, but the pictures were clear and of high quality. We are planning to order our Coffee Table style wedding album from them and we can’t wait to see what Marti’s creativity puts together for us. We are confident that the album will be just as impressive as everything else Abba has done. We both would highly recommend Abba Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer–if quality, professionalism, and creativity at a good price is what you are looking for.
Gary and Marti were fantastic. They arrived right on time and were extremely helpful with getting everything organized so that the pictures would run smoothly and look amazing. The best part of our experience with them was getting the pictures back and realizing what great shots (that we would never have thought about taking!) there were! We would (and will) definitely use them again.
Our pictures are wonderful, we could not have asked for anything better. Everything was well organized and went to plan.
Gary and Marti were FABULOUS!!! From day one Kenny and I knew we wanted to have them part of our wedding. They photographed my sister’s wedding 15 years ago and my brother’s wedding 12 years ago in Miami, Florida. When I found out they moved their business to Orlando, Florida, I knew I did not want any other photographer BUT Abba Photography. I was amazed how Gary and Marti remembered my family. When I called and made an appointment, I mentioned them photographing my siblings weddings in Miami and they remembered all the details including their names (now that is customer service). If I could give them ten more stars in my review, I would. I highly recommend them for your wedding and I know you will not be let down. Hands down, the best photographers around!!!
Exceptional service and quality . . . highly recommended!
We used Gary and Marti of Abba Photography at our wedding and we could not be happier with the quality of the work and the service that we received. If you are on a budget, as we were, Abba is the best value for your money because you are essentially getting 2 top notch photographers for the price of one. Prior to your ceremony, Marti will be with the bride taking candid photos while Gary is with groom. The nice thing about this is that it gives you and your partner an opportunity to see what was going on before the wedding. Also, the quality of the photos and the shots that Gary and Marti capture are beautiful snapshots of your day. I was thrilled with the service and the photos. I would use Abba again for any special event that I wanted to capture.
Abba Photography did an absolutely fantastic job! Having a husband & wife team was great! She was able to get pictures of me getting ready while he took pictures of my husband and the groomsmen. They were able to be in different places at the church and at the reception so they never missed a picture! They are both professional and personable and although they may have been priced a bit higher than other photographers…we got 2 of them! Our pictures turned out AMAZING and we got so many compliments from our wedding guests about them. Quite a few of our guests actually ended up ordering pictures directly from Abba’s website which was so convenient! Everything Abba Photography promised us came to fruition and within the exact timeframes we were given. I can not say enough about how happy Mark & I were with their services. Thanks again Abba for making our day so memorable!!!

Gary and Marti from Abba Photography in Orlando, Florida were a joy to work with. They have so much talent and are very sweet to work with. The best part about them is you get 2 photographers for the price of one! They are a husband and wife team and are both individually accomplished photographers. Finally, the artistic touch they put on their professional albums is what really sealed the deal for us. We would highly recommend them.
Very good service, friendly, great pictures…. I would recommend to a friend.
Husband & Wife team…so you get 2 photographers to catch every moment. Home is remodeled to be a studio. So many options and very fun to work with. No complaints! Book early because they’re popular!
We were EXTREMELY pleased with Abba Photography and are so happy we chose them to digitally capture our day and night. They were truly phenomenal to work with and helped make our day go extremely smooth. We decided to take a lot of pictures before the wedding and they had no problem going to two different locations with us before even making it to the church. They captured our ceremony and reception beautifully – we couldn’t be happier. They may not be the cheapest photographer you can find, but do you really want the cheapest? I would recommend being very careful with who you choose to capture your special day. You can’t go wrong if you decide to use Abba. Since receiving our pictures, we have received numerous compliments from family and friends on the great shots that we have! Simply stated, I am more than happy with the service that they provided. They were very personable and easy to work with and did a professional, amazing job!
Abba Photography did not do our wedding but did the post-production work in creating our wedding album. They did a wonderful job. They utilized creative composition, paid extreme attention to detail, and showed enormous pride in their work product. My wife and I would gladly seek their services again. Abba Photography made improvements to the album that exceeded our wildest expectations. A few examples of the workmanship of Abba Photography are illustrative. At our wedding reception, my wife and I sat alone at a head table overlooking all of our guests. The table cloth was wrinkled and did not show well. Abba Photography recreated the table cloth through post-production editing and made the table cloth appear as though it had been neatly ironed prior to being laid on the head table. In one picture, Abba Photography was astute enough to notice a birth mark on the nose of one of the wedding guests and removed it. My wife and I did not even notice the birth mark until it was pointed out to us. In a table shot at the wedding reception, Abba Photography was able to sample the face of one of the guests from another picture and substitute it for the actual face photographed, creating a more favorable impression. There are many more examples but I will spare your eyes from much further reading. As talented as Abba Photography is, they are equally courteous, caring, and professional. Abba Photography is very sensitive to customer satisfaction and takes their work very seriously. Abba Photography has been in the business for approximately two decades. Our experience with them reflects why they have been in the industry for as long as they have.
It was a pleasure working with Gary and Marti. They were completely professional throughout and we plan on using them in the future for all of our photography needs.
Abba Photography is the absolute best. Gary and Marti are exceptional professionals. They took the time to meet with us and understand what we wanted, they were attentive to the details, and they were extremely reliable and courteous.
They are amazing talents. All of the pictures are spectacular, and the album that they designed is perfect.
I would highly recommend Abba Photography. The husband and wife team was an excellent duo to work with. They were very professional. Everything from the getting ready to the ceremony to the reception was well documented. They were “low maintenance” in that we never had to ask “where’s the photographer??” nor did we have to fight them to get what we wanted. I paid additional so I could have the high-res photos on DVD. There were maybe 400 photos. (Now thought it seems common for brides to get 600 photos!) I enjoyed the engagement session because it helped us feel comfortable with them. Overall good experience.
We found Abba online and were very impressed with their professional manner. Furthermore they were very easy to deal with, always on time, extremely courteous, and listened to our requests. They even helped us find another florist after a mishap with the 1st one we chose.
