I Photograph couples excited for forever
Hey, there! I’m Abigail.
You might be surprised to hear photography isn’t my passion… people are my passion. I’m all about connecting on that “we’ve known each other forever!” kinda level. For me it’s more than just telling your story. It’s an invitation to an intimate moment in your life. It’s a big deal because your love is a big deal.
Take a moment, look around, and when you’re ready we’ll catch up over coffee or your favorite brew.
Hi! I’m abigail
Wedding photographer & doughnut lover
always cold. loves hugs. calm under pressure.
Born and raised on a small farm, I transplanted myself to Indy in 2016 after meeting my hunk of a husband, Adam, on Tinder. Now we have a happy baby boy, Harvey!
I’ve always had a passion for helping and serving others. Photography allows me to chase this dream while being whimsical and creative. It’s like the best of both worlds. I think life is something meant to be explored and there are so many wonderful ways to do it. My friends would say I’m spontaneous, independent, and (hopefully) hilarious. 😉
I’ve never met a taco I didn’t like…but really, who has? Add some tequila and you have my full attention. Fuzzy socks are my jam, yanno, cause I’m always cold.
I only take a limited number of weddings each year. I fully believe in dedicating as much time as I can to each couple. My love language is quality time, so don’t be surprised if we end up chatting longer than expected at consult or if I ask a lot of questions about you as a couple during the engagement session. I want to learn as much as I can before the wedding so I can serve you in the best way possible.
it’s time to know ya boo!

Each Abigail Gowin couple enjoys the same experience and attention to detail. Your wedding is one-of-a-kind so you shouldn’t have to compromise for beautiful photos. We start with a consultation, in person or phone. I understand how hectic life + planning a wedding can get, so whatever works best for you works for me! This step is crucial to ensure we are a great fit; trust me when I say you want to be excited to work with your photographer. Once we have the ball rolling and your engagement session date locked down, I’ll send over a prep guide to select outfits and locations. Many of my couples have said their engagement session helped them prepare to be comfortable in front of the lens on the wedding day. You’ll only be engaged for a short time compared to your marriage – it’s only fitting you celebrate! Before the wedding you will receive a robust questionnaire to enter in alllll the activities of your day. This helps me create a timeline you can share with all your VIPs. At least two weeks out from the big day you will drop off the rings, jewelry, perfume, watches, invitation suite, and any other small details you want photographed for styling. Not only do your precious items get the care and attention they deserve, we save an hour or more of coverage on the wedding day that is now focused on YOU! The big day comes with traditional coverage & my trusty assistant, we’ll arrive just before you put on your dress and leave 30 minutes into open dancing. Not a single important moment will be missed. Let’s recap:
Traditional Wedding Coverage
Who says you can’t wear your dress more than once? Bridals are a great excuse to put on your wedding dress, get pampered, and have a session all to yourself. It’s one thing we can mark off the list for your wedding day, giving us time to dedicate elsewhere. No stress, just fun! Bridal sessions are up to 2 hours, up to 60 images, and $450 when added to a wedding collection.
It’s all about feeling confident and beautiful in your skin. Whether that means cute and causal or full blown sexy, we will create a stunning gallery that will leave his law on the floor. Boudoir sessions are up to 2 hours, professional hair & make up included, up to 60 images, and a “little black book.” $600 when booked with a wedding collection.
rehearsal dinner coverage
Rehearsal dinners are a great way for me to meet everyone and get a sense of the ceremony. Covering a dinner like this I will snag some amazing candid images of you and your loved ones. $200/hour
additional wedding hours
Every wedding is different. While I am confident I can capture everything you need in 8 or less hours, sometimes there’s a need for a little extra time. I’m happy to stay a little later or arrive early for those special moments! Additional hours are $200/hour for just me and $300/hour for myself and a second shooter.
one year anniversary
You made it! They always say the first year of marriage is the hardest, but how hard can it be with your best friend? Celebrate this milestone with a hour session and up to 30 images. $300 when booked with a wedding collection.
For the milestones. The memories. The timeless.
