Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS

How many images will I get and when can I expect them?
Portrait sessions: Your gallery comes with an average of 40 images. You will be able to select your favorite 25 for downloading or you can purchase the remainder of the gallery for $100. Images will be ready for viewing 15 days after our session.

Bridal & Boudoir Sessions: Your gallery comes with 40 hand-touched images. Images will be completed 25 days after our session.

Weddings: On average I deliver 50 images per hour of coverage. This can vary with the amount of details and events throughout the day. I photograph with a lot of intention & strive to deliver quality over quantity. Images will be ready 45 days after your wedding.

Do you offer prints or albums?
Yes! I have gorgeous, high quality, leather-bound and linen cover albums that lay flat and have thick, sturdy pages. I design the layout myself and upon your approval submit for printing. I also offer small prints and canvases which can be purchased directly from your gallery.
How do I book?
Once we’ve hammered out all the details I will provide a Proposal. That’s just a fancy way of saying an e-mail with a link to your invoice & proposal all in one. The Proposal is good for one week only. In this time I will tentatively reserve your date on my calendar. To become fully booked, you only need to satisfy the retainer or payment & sign the agreement. I’ll get a quick notice of these actions and countersign as well.

For weddings, a 50% retainer is due at booking. The remaining 50% is due 30 days out from your wedding.

All other sessions are 100% due at time of booking.

If you need a more structured payment plan, don’t be afraid to ask!

What if you're not available for my date?
There’s always a few “popular” wedding dates each year that tend to book up quickly. If I am personally not available on the date but you still want to be an Abigail Gowin bride or groom, you’re in luck! I offer an Associate program. I will photograph any additional sessions in your package, as well as handle all communication, editing, and delivery of images. For your wedding day a vetted and experienced photographer who has been trained to mimic my shooting style will be there to capture all the moments. The same turnaround time applies (45 days). This program is offered at a discounted rate and a great way to still be an Abigail Gowin bride or groom!

Associate photographers are not available for regular sessions at this time.

I'm not sure what to wear, can you help?

Absolutely! Once booked I will send out my style guide and help answer any questions you have about what to wear. The key is finding something that makes you feel confident, it really shines through in your images!

What if you aren't in my budget?

Still send me a note! Because I only take on a limited number of weddings, I cannot negotiate on price. But we can look at your desired budget and see if there is an option for a custom package to suit your needs. I also offer an Associate’s Program which may be the perfect fit. At the end of the day, if I’m not lucky enough to photograph your wedding, I will send you highly vetted recommendations for incredible people. You deserve the best memories!

Do you choose the location or do we?

If you have a location in mind, speak up! Even if you don’t think it would be “pretty.” If it’s special to you, it’s special to me. The image to your left is on top of a parking garage. Katie & Roberto used to hang up there during college because it overlooks Purdue. Don’t have a location in mind? I have tons of options available based on an urban feel or natural setting.

Are there any additional fees?

The only time you will have extra fees not listed online are for travel or photography permits. Some locations require a special pass, which is always noted. Travel 25+ miles outside the 46075 radius is 25 cents/mile round trip. Should your needs incur additional costs, we will discuss this at length and it will be noted on your invoice and agreement. 

It’s Going to be Perfect!
