Springfield and Branson Missouri Wedding Photographer

The Photographer

Hey, I'm Abigail

I am a traveling wedding photographer based in Springfield, Missouri. I have been in business for 10 years! I was born and raised in the Ozark Mountains. Photographing life's greatest moments is my passion. I am also a mom and wife. I have a sweet little boy named Jude and a little girl named Chloe. My husband Britton and I have been married for 9 years! But we were high school sweethearts and have been together almost 13 years. We love spending time at the lake paddle boarding, wake boarding, hiking, and fishing. We are determined to show our kids all that life has to offer through nature and love. We live in Missouri but are ready to adventure anywhere.

All you need in life is, love, water, dirt, and trees.

As a bride I knew from the beginning that photography was one of my top priorities for our wedding. As soon as I saw Abigail's work I knew that her style was what I had envisioned for our photos. Then, within minutes of meeting her I knew we had to book her for our day. Abigail is such a kind, witty, down to earth person and she does amazing work with a camera! She made everyone feel so comfortable and relaxed and you can really tell that she loves what she does. Our pictures turned out so amazing!"

Where do I begin! Abigail was the best of the best, truly. We had her photograph our afternoon wedding at the end of August. It was over 100 degrees but the heat index was like 146. But that didn’t stop her from jumping on and off of that shuttle and taking us to her favorite spots on Big Cedar’s property! Also, a worry for some people is the lighting and how well the photos will turn out if you’re in broad daylight — Abigail takes on this challenge with ease and professionalism. The photos we received are

Abby is hands down the best photographer in SWMO- probably all of Missouri. When you shoot with her, she makes you feel empowered, beautiful, confident, and safe! Posing for pictures never felt more natural. Besides the fact she is a fabulous photographer and she has the most gorgeous style/vibe/colors EVER, she is truly a delightful human. She is fun, quirky, cool, and warm. She is a gem. Abby is an unbelievably talented photographer, but she is so much more. Pick her for all your photography needs!

If you need pictures taken, you want Abigail . It's not just her skill but the person she is. With Abigail, you get an experience you won't forget. My fiancé and I had engagement photos with her, and I have never looked as beautiful as she made me . We got so many compliments and our friends booked her too. We are super grateful to know her!

Abigail is a true professional, combined with the comforts of a friend, and motivator. She is a cheerleader through life events, and captures raw emotion, feelings, and moments in her frames. She has encouraged me, and made me feel beautiful in ways I didn’t know could be so visual! I also recommend her prompt scheduling, quick turnaround, and overall variety and selection.

Unique couples photography
Being a photographer myself I was overly picky with finding a perfect match to capture our engagement. When I ran my vision by Abigail she was super enthusiastic about making it happen, I instantly knew I had the right girl. Our engagement session felt like an adventure all in itself, from climbing a grassy knoll to jumping in the lake we felt comfortable & very natural with the posing. Abigail made it enjoyable & even my fiancé (who isn’t the biggest fan of getting photos) raves on the experience. & going

Abigail is the absolute best!! She made my entire experience so much better. I told her my vision and she helped me with locations and outfits & they could not have been more perfect. She is so sweet. She knows how to make you comfortable especially if you’re shy like me. I couldn’t of had a better photographer or experience. Her photos are absolutely beautiful!

Every little detail of our day would be long gone memories by now if it weren't for the work of Abigail. Not only is she an incredibly sweet, witty, funny human being, she's absolutely amazing with a camera. You won't ever for a second regret having her capture your event.

Abigail photographed our wedding day and I honestly don’t know how she could have done a better job than what she did. We are in love with our pictures and now a month later we still find ourselves going through them over and over again. They are artistic and exactly our style, but she also captured the feelings in moments and that is priceless. We both highly recommend Abigail!
— Heaven and Corbin
I hired Abigail to photograph my wedding and let me tell you it was a good choice! She is super easy going and great to work with! My pictures were amazing and anything I requested she made sure it was taken care of! She was also very reasonably priced for the quality of photos that you get!
— Megan Munton
Aside from her being an amazing photographer, she is great with giving advice when there aren’t people around like wedding planners and she’s just a calm leader on a stressful day. Our wedding photos were incredible and props to her because there was a lot of crying (the happy kind!) and vague planning on our part, but Abby handled us like a pro. Photography is Abby’s craft and calling, and if you ever get a chance to be her client, take it!
