How it all began...

Surprisingly photography was not my first love, oddly enough I began my creative journey as a painter and illustrator. I was recognized for my photography as a senior in High School, but I still couldn't see myself as a photographer. The moment I realized I needed something more for my creative spirit was the moment I realized I love people far too much to spend hours stuck in a painting studio. I developed my first roll of film as a freshman in college and from their my journey was forever changed. It took me a while to find my way but my family, the most important presence in my life, reminded me daily I would find my Knack in life, and sure enough Knack Photo was born. 

Meet the Photographer...

 My name is Abbey Bratcher and I started  Knack Photo in 2013. I am a horse back rider and equestrian jumper. In addition to my commercial work I enjoy my pursuit in documentary photography. I love to laugh, however I tend to end up laughing at myself most of the time. I can't hold a good phone conversation so don't judge by that first call. I talk with my hands a lot. I have a tremendous passion for all things animals. I adore people, and love to here their stories. I love the Lord and try to glorify him through it all. My favorite food consists of the classic fried chicken tenders and honey mustard. I will always be a Tennessee country girl with all the accent struggles. I am obsessed with Netflix almost as much as I am with being a photographer. I like to think I am so much more than a photographer, just like I know you are so much more than another photo in my portfolio, or just another love story. You are my extended family, and have your own unique story to tell, so welcome and thank you for your time.
