Frequently Asked Questions

My work is best described as vibrant, effortlessly joyful, colorful, romantic, and natural. I enjoy capturing your day as it unfolds naturally, while gently guiding and directing you in posing and finding the best use of space and light. I aim to create artful, evocative imagery and use a mix of film and digital as my chosen mediums. I provide clients with galleries showcasing refined editorial portraiture, sentimental in-between moments, and magical candids from their special day.

My family and I recently moved to O’fallon, Illinois, however, I am available for travel, as well as destination weddings. I’ve been to over 40 countries and love getting the chance at exploring new ones!

I’m so excited you’re ready to make things official! Please email or fill out my inquiry form with as much information and detail as possible. In response you’ll receive pricing information and we’ll set up a time for a consultation. I love to meet in person over coffee or drinks, but FaceTime or a phone call is just as meaningful when discussing the details of your big day and while getting to know each other.

A signed contract and 25% booking fee.

Yes, I believe clients are entitled to their images and each collection includes an online gallery where you’ll be able to download all of your high-resolution images where you will also receive the rights to print. There is an easy to use option to print and create albums right in your online gallery as well. Although optional, I highly suggest ordering prints through your gallery or using a professional printing lab. Please ask me for assistance.

I am unable to make any guarantees on the total amount of images that are delivered in your final gallery because it depends on so many different factors that are unique to you and your wedding day. Upon inquiring you will receive several previously delivered full wedding galleries that showcase my approach and aesthetic, as well as to give you an idea of what clients can expect from working with me.

As each image captured is hand edited with so much care, entire wedding galleries are delivered no later than 8 weeks after your wedding.

Your total balance will be broken into 4 installments with your final payment due no later than 30 days before your wedding. I ask for 25% of your total balance up front and that serves as your non-refundable booking fee. 

I accept cash, checks, or electronic payments in the form of direct bank transfer or credit cards. You’ll have the option to electronically (and securely) pay directly through your online invoice. The 25% booking fee is due upon invoice and the remaining balance will be broken into 3 installments with the final payment due 30 days before your wedding.

Of course! I love seeing my clients share their images with their loved ones online. I only humbly ask that you tag or credit Abbey Leigh Photography or @abbeyleighphotography whenever possible and to please do not edit, crop, or use any filters.

I shoot with Sony and Canon for digital and also use a variety of medium format and 35mm film cameras to complete your gallery. I am constantly adding and exploring new equipment to add to my arsenal in order to best serve my clients.

Of course, and I can provide your venue with paperwork if requested.

I offer boudoir sessions all year because I believe in the rawness of capturing genuine beauty. I want you to feel empowered and comfortable while we create tasteful and artistic imagery for a loved one or yourself. Feel free to browse my offerings using the tab on the main menu and connect with me with any questions.

Always yes! I am a huge animal lover and adore incorporating them into your session. Don’t hesitate to bring them to any sessions or incorporate them into your wedding day, they are family after all!

I am so thankful to work alongside other creative professionals to create magical and masterfully executed wedding days for our clients. You can find the list of my favorite vendors here, as well as in the footer.
