My name is Abigail Saalfrank but everyone just calls me Abbey. I am a wedding photographer based out of the Midwest. But you probably already knew that. Now most photographers about sections talk about how they knew they wanted to be a photographer from birth, and that's not the case for me. I stumbled into it, literally. I had no plans to become a wedding photographer, but over five years and over 75 weddings later, I could not imagine myself doing anything else. This is my dream job.
Outside of my job you find me spending my time curled up on the couch watching Netflix, and eating literally any snack I can find. My current obsession is bagel chips. You can also often find me reading the newest mystery novel, drinking a Strawberry Refresher from Starbucks, vacationing with my family at our lake house for a few days, reorganizing my house (hello OCD me), or trying to convince myself not to buy a vintage punch bug! Seriously hoping one Christmas my parents just make my dreams come true, but I won't hold my breath.
I LIVE FOR
Rather its curling up on the couch and watching the newest comedy, having a big family dinner, or just obsessing over little Harper (my sweet niece), you are likely to find me spending what free time I do have with my family.
Fun Facts About Me
Holiday Baby Check
I was born on Thanksgiving, which means that every Thanksgiving my mom has to let me know that I am the best turkey she ever had!
Meet My Second Shooter, Evan
Since every single wedding package comes with a second photographer so I wanted to take the chance to introduce you to the other face behind the photos, Evan! Evan is my second shooter, and best friend. I brought him into my business at the start of the 2019 wedding season, and can't wait to continue working together as we head into the 2020 season. Evan shoots all weddings with me, as well as out of town engagement sessions, and the occasional in town engagement session.
Outside of shooting weddings, you can most likely find Evan at his other job. He is a Mechanical Engineer by day, Wedding Photographer by weekend. But outside of all work, you are most likely to find him traveling, spending time with his family, enjoying some Chipotle, or playing soccer. On the off chance we have a weekend off, you will find him glued to the TV cheering on his favorite team, the Green Bay Packers and snuggling with his cat, Sammy.
