Oh my goodness- where do I even begin?! Abigail was my absolute favorite vendor, and we are absolutely in love with the photographs she captured for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! Literally, each and every image turned out amazing and will give us such beautiful photos to remember our special day for the rest of our lives! Abigail took every small detail and moment, and made sure it was captured with such quality and thoughtfulness. She put a special and unique touch on everything and she has such a great eye for the color, angles, and lighting in her photos. Not only is Abigail super talented, but she is so kind, energetic, and confident- she absolutely knows what she is doing and I trusted her 1,000 percent with photographing every part of our wedding day. She made us feel comfortable and assured from start to finish, throughout our engagement shoot and on our big weekend. We were so beyond impressed with her work and are thrilled with our wedding day photos from her! Highly, highly recommend her- you won’t regret it!!!!

"Three words come to mind with describing Abigail Malone: timeless, talented and tremendous. I feel beyond blessed to have had the privilege to have her as my wedding photographer. My husband Jordan and I used Abby for our engagement session, my bridal portraits, our actual wedding day from start to finish and more. She went above and beyond with amazing timeliness to her work, unique detailing and professional equipment. There is something to be said for a photographer who makes you feel like she isn’t even there, leaving the intimate moments organic yet instructing you to get the best shots. She is truly one of the easiest people to connect with and has one of the most kind spirits I have ever met. I consider her a dear friend now, and can’t wait for the many more seasons of our life she will photograph.”

“PERFECT. I was initially worried because her services don’t come cheap...but after a few email exchanges (which were cheerful/pleasant...I cannot say that about all the photographers I reached out to in the Knoxville area), we met for coffee, talked and looked at her MARVELOUS work. I genuinely just really liked her as person and decided to work with her, have amazing photos, and allow our cake budget to take the backseat! However, you will likely never see me post that beautiful photo of that not so beautiful cake. There is just something so incredible about film. It’s grainy, real and full of character. I’m OBSESSED with our black and white film photos!”

“Abigail was my favorite vendor to work with. Our wedding photos are a piece of art! She gives you photos that are completely unique to your day. She is professional but also personal. So helpful with posing and making sure you look your best. I could not recommend her enough!”
- Connor McStravick
We were so so happy to have Abigail photograph our wedding in June! We had to change all of our wedding plans very last minute due to COVID, and she was a major factor for why our day remained super special and stress free. She is so kind and her sweet personality kept me at ease all day. Abigail effortlessly captured so many details and it has been such a treat to relive the wedding through her beautiful photographs. I can't recommend her enough - we are so thankful that we had the opportunity to work with her. The quality of the photos is stunning and we will treasure them forever!!
- Lydia Ruth
“Abby was absolutely phenomenal. She is incredibly professional, and she knows exactly what she is doing. I wish she could photograph my whole life! The pictures are absolutely stunning from all of the times I worked with her (engagement, bridal, wedding). I can’t wait to find a reason to hire her again. She’s great to work with, and she has a deep knowledge of photography. I love her style, and I absolutely loved how she so perfectly captured all of the joy and emotions at the wedding. All of the pictures are so full of light and life. She kept us on schedule while still managing to capture all of the special moments in detail. ”
- Melissa and Cornelius
“Dear Abby, we are so pleased with the way that the photos turned out! We already knew how talented you are, but we really feel that you captured our wedding perfectly - even better than we could have imagined. Your creativity really shines through. We are so thankful to have these photos as a way of remembering our special day. Thank you for all of your hard work, not only on the day of the wedding, but also the time you spent editing the images, not to mention getting them to us so quickly! It was wonderful to work with someone who is not only talented, but also extremely passionate about what they do. Thank you for such a wonderful photography experience, we couldn’t have imagined it any better!”

She brought so much love and positive energy to our day and everyone has complimented how wonderful our pictures are. She was extremely easy to work with and caught moments throughout the day that we, as well as our friends and family, will cherish for the rest of our lives. ”

LOVE, MARRIAGE...AND A BABY CARRIAGE?
just tell me when!
I hope to be so much more than your wedding photographer; I hope to be your photographer for a lifetime. As your family changes (and grows!), I look forward to preserving each season of life. From anniversaries to maternity, family to new pets, reunions to anything at all, I will continue to tell your story as long as you’ll have me!
As you prepare for one of the most special days of your life, it’s so important to find a photographer committed to treating your precious memories with care and love. As you’ve discovered through my wedding experience, this goal rests at the heart of what I do!
By booking a limited amount of weddings a year, I am able to fully and uniquely invest in each one. I offer excellent service, open communication, and an unwavering belief that genuine relationship is the secret to great photography. With a professional demeanor and friendly smile, I can deliver breathtaking images in a relaxed atmosphere, respecting your values every step of the way. And as you settle into your new life as husband and wife, I’ll joyfully help you create albums and wall art to commemorate the day your new family legacy began.
Because I believe every wedding -- every couple -- is beautifully unique, all of my collections are fully customizable. So, explore some of the signature collections I offer along with a few of the optional add ons ons you can consider! Then, we can custom fit it to perfection.
It is a fact of life that technology can sometimes run into some issues. However, I have enough equipment to bring as a back-up on the day. My gear is well maintained so I have taken every step I can to prevent problems and protect your images. I also bring along a 2nd shooter to weddings to ensure we capture all the angles of magic on your big day.
I've never yet not been able to attend a wedding but, as with any supplier, it is possible that an illness or emergency could prevent me from attending your wedding. In the unlikely event, I will try to find a similar stye replacement from my network. If this is not possible, then the final, worst and last case scenario is that I will refund the money you have paid me.
To help ensure the day's smooth-running, for example, by helping to rally your guests for any group shots you may wish to have. They'll also maximize the coverage of your day by providing a different perspective, priority or angle. You'll love their complementary images, which are personally edited by me so they'll work together seamlessly.
I know you want to see yourself looking you best in the photos. I edit and retouch with care and respect. Initially getting this right in-camera with the most flattering angles and lighting is key but if you get a temporary blemish on the day, I'll remove it! Don't worry, I avoid obvious, heavily-edited changes. The process of editing essentially involves making an appropriate artistic judgement on each photo and aiming for a cohesive collection. This may mean adjustments to the exposure and crop or a conversion to black and white, for example, Each image is individually edited to reflect my light and airy style. You'll receive perfectly-finished digital images.
