"Abbie did an amazing job taking both my wedding pictures in Florida and Reception pictures at home!! I couldn't ask for a better memory!!"
Angie Meara: ATP Mom
"Our daughter and first born has always attracted other people's cameras in her life. On this path, we happened upon Abbie Rudolph at a restaurant in Maplewood. And, in no time at all, our daughter got to meet Abbie up close and personal for a photo shoot. Abbie was starting her photography business and felt a certain chemistry with Olive and shortly after that meeting, we would begin a 7 year (and counting) journey. I recall Abbie complimenting us on having a well lite home full of natural light. So, we both took advantage of this studio-like backdrop and began chronicling our family's every day, at-home experiences on an annual basis. We had all the comforts of home with this very cheerful, grounded, and ultra charming photographer - Abbie. Her school teacher patience is extraordinary, especially when our son, Van was getting to know her and was still a bit unsure. She always matched our children's need to "warm up" or allowed for their faces to recover after some tears if they became upset by something that had nothing to do with her. This flexibility paid off and her photography play dates were something our children (and my husband and I) eagerly awaited. I didn't know at the beginning of our relationship that we would splurge and hire Abbie every year for 7 years, but do know that her capturing the actual day-to-day life in our home will be cherished long after our children have children."

"I was blessed to have been referred to Abbie Takes Pictures! She did a spectacular job with our engagement and wedding photos. I seriously relive those days each and every time I look at my photos.
On top of that she is an expert in the field! She knows so much about photography and even taught us some tricks of the trade. Her fun personality made for both relaxed and exciting photo sessions. As well as her organization which made for smooth transitions throughout!
If you are looking for someone who is passionate about their work, an expert at photographing, and the best engagement/wedding experience of your life, make sure to give Abbie a call because you won't regret it!!!"
Stacey Buske: ATP Bride
"We love Abbie and her staff! She goes above and beyond to make your wedding photography the greatest. She is a true professional, easy to talk with, and get ahold of. You can trust her with capturing all of the precious moments throughout your wedding day. Picking a photographer was very important to us because these are the only moments captured of our wedding day and we could not be happier with our choice of Abbie Takes Pictures. We are utterly grateful to have worked with her (and her team) and any bride would be silly not to hire her! We are so happy to be part of the ATP family!"
Jenn Forbis: ATP Mom
"In July, I had a beautiful baby girl. Abbie was there from the time we got to the hospital, until after she was born. Having her there to photograph her newborn photos was invaluable. With the pictures she took that day, she made an amazing book that told Grace's story. I will cherish this book forever. Abbie is truly talented and has an amazing eye."
Kristina Moody: ATP Bride
"Abbie is a very down to earth individual who takes the complete meaning of 'capturing one moment at a time' and placing it in every picture she takes. I am extremely happy with the services Abbie has provided my future husband and I. Not only are our engagement pictures beautiful but I can truthfully say with complete confidence that our future wedding pictures will also be beautiful! Thank you Abbie for letting us take some time from your schedule to document our big day!"
Tammy Radcliff-Hernandez: ATP Bride
"While we were looking for a photographer, we found Abbie. After meeting with her and seeing some of her work, it was easy to make our choice. We even decided to have her take some engagement pictures, which wasn't even in our plans. After seeing some of our engagement photos, we knew we had nothing to worry about for our wedding day. We are now married, but we have the BEST wedding photos to remind us of our special day. We couldn't have made a better choice!!"
"Abbie is excellent ! Not only in her talent for capturing incredible moments, but her ability to bring out those moments. She did our family portraits last year (dog included) & I have them hanging all over the house. Can't wait to book another session!"
"Abbie is a natural photographer who takes all the necessary steps to capture the essence of anyone or event. She is trendy and contemporary. She is my family and event photographer because she captures memories that will last a lifetime. People view my pictures and are breathless at the flawless and beauty of a single photograph."
"My fiance and I are graduate students in a long-distance relationship, so we needed a photographer who would meet us where we were at - both financially and location/time-wise! We have been so impressed with the high quality of Abbie's work and we are so grateful for her friendliness and flexibility! Our families adore our engagement pictures, and I am certain these are the photos of us that our children will someday cherish."
"It had been over 7 years since I had a photo taken, so I knew exactly what I wanted to give my family for Christmas. I knew Abbie was the person to capture exactly what I was looking for. She took amazing photographs of me at Tower Grove Park and some of me in my classroom with my students. During the entire shoot, I felt comfortable and relaxed while knowing she had a vision that was fully realized in the end. My family was amazed by the range of pictures from close-ups, to those that resembled faraway paintings. In fact, she even had several of the images enlarged and customed framed in time for me to head home for the holidays. I could not have chosen a more perfect present for the whole family!"
"We had my sons Senior High School picture taken by Abbie. We were so pleased with the results, I couldn't help scheduling every photo opportunity with her!! People.. seriously.. Best pictures EVER! I am in the habit of having the family portrait taken every two years since the children were born. They are 18 and 20 now and I have used the sum of 4 different photographers over that time period. I have some very nice, posed portraits and now I have ABBIES!!! I’ll never do another in studio portrait again. Abbie and I worked together to choose the perfect location and set the date. She researched the area before our appointment, chose the perfect time of day for great lighting, and we had taken the most awesome photos in about 45 minutes. I've had compliments galore on the large family canvas that hangs over the fireplace and received wonderful feedback on the design and pictures chosen for our Christmas card (which Abbie also remarkably designed!). For those of you who want to do something really special for that significant other, I personally recommend a boudoir shoot. Absolutely fantastic. My husband loves the photo album!THANK YOU ABBIE for uniquely practicing your craft so well!"
