photographs that feel alive.

This is your life… your love… in art form

When your smile lines are more pronounced. When life has written more chapters. When you want to remember where it all started. You'll reach for these photographs.

Let's capture the kiss me again butterflies, the palpable energy between you two, and just how easy it feels for you to love one another.

Catching feelings

That’s me—Abbigayle. Here to catch your feelings and give them back to you in one of a kind photographs.

I wouldn’t blame ya if you were surprised that all of these poetic vibes come from a midwestern girl that wears a fanny pack, jams out to Maggie Rogers, and uses finger guns unironically.

But hey, life is a heck of a lot more fun when you aren’t trying to fit yourself into a box. It makes room for experience, experimentation, and expression. And I’ll be damned if your photos don’t reflect that too.

“She has a way of really seeing people. Being genuine about capturing them. And honoring their uniqueness.”


How the tears roll down your lover’s cheeks and past their smile.

How your grandpa wraps a blanket around your grandma's shoulders.

How your joy and slight glances to each other speak a thousand words. 

After the candles have all burnt down and your dress is unbuttoned and you’re overflowing with euphoria—you’ll settle into bed with the love of your life knowing that you made the most of every single moment. 

And later on you’ll have photographs full of breath, movement, and love. Photographs that move you as much as the day itself.

And relive it for decades.
