Matt & Rose

Abby is a talented, friendly photographer with years of great experience! Her digital communication and in-person meetings gave excellent guidance as we planned out photography for our big day.

Gorgeous photos will document each moment of your special day. You’ll be so excited to print them out and share! We also recommend ordering the videography for a lovely edited video.

 can’t stress enough how great these photos looked. We had friends and family reach out to us just to gush about the photos!

Abby also offers studio-grade engagement photos with her wedding photography services at your favorite location. We had our engagement photos taken at our local arcade!

We recommend Abby Schaefer Photography to anyone planning a wedding or other major event in the Cleveland area. You won’t find a nicer photographer or a better value anywhere else.

I met Abby while she was doing photography for my friend's wedding and I absolutely fell in love with her charm and her pictures! I knew when I got engaged that there was only one photographer for me. She is so communicative and will never leave you hanging with the planning process! She was my advocate on my wedding day when I needed someone to be assertive and she made the picture taking progress fun and easy. They came out beautifully and I will for sure book with her again whenever I need photos taken! I would recommend her 10/10 times.

We hired Abby to take our engagement and wedding photos this past summer and what an amazing photographer she is! She has a gift of making you feel beautiful and relaxed and the outcome of our photos were nothing short of perfect. She even threw in some extras at no cost because there were so many good ones it was hard to pick! Neither of us are used to getting our photo taken but she captured so many natural, happy moments that that didn't matter, she made us look like models! I reccomend her highly and will continue to work with her through out life's milestones.

My husband and I worked with Abby for both our engagement and wedding photos. We could not have had a better experience. Abby does an amazing job managing through the process, and the end product couldn't have turned out better. We had an amazing time at our wedding and Abby captured all of the best moments. We will absolutely work with Abby again in the future and could not recommend her enough! Thank you for all your hard work Abby!!!

Barbara & Johnny

I am so thankful that my husband and I decided to book with Abby for our Wedding Day. From the very start Abby was so friendly and caring by really wanting to get to know us and our story. My husband and I felt a little awkward at first for the engagement shoot but she really made us feel comfortable and encouraged us to just be ourselves and the pictures turned out amazing. She was all in from the start and we knew we had nothing to worry about for the big day. She is so personable, organized, timely, and will not let you down. She captured the most beautiful pictures of our Wedding Day and went above and beyond in both the quality and number of photos she gave us. Not only is her work amazing but she also made the day stress-free and so enjoyable by making sure everything went smoothly. We also got the video service that Abby offered and would 100% recommend doing so. The video is set to songs of your choice and is the perfect compilation of video clips that truly bring you back to the day and allow you to relive it all over again. I find myself watching it over and over and reminiscing on all the wonderful memories of our special day that I will never forget. Abby is an awesome person and her work is amazing! I would 150% recommend Abby.

Alyssa & Noah

My (now) fiancé hired Abby to photograph our engagement in Cleveland. Abby did such a great job at being hidden and secretive that I didn’t even realize it was happening until he was literally down on one knee and I heard the cheers from people around us. After the proposal, Abby took us and did a few post engagement photos and they are so good! She was very good with directing two awkward people and getting some great shots. I will absolutely consider her for any shoot and a wedding once we nail down more details!

I cannot recommend Abby enough! She did everything to make sure our wedding photos turned out absolutely beautiful. She went above and beyond in both the quality and number of photos she gave us. I 100% also recommend getting the video service. The 10 minute video set to music was the perfect compilation of our day and I find myself watching it over and over and it has been so special to have to share with family and friends. Abby is someone I will continue to choose for maternity, newborn, family photos, etc. when that day comes. Overall amazing experience!

Abby is the best! Abby had done my college pics so well, I decided to use her for my wedding. She went above and beyond with planning and making sure every moment of our day was captured.(bridal party & all! ) She captured everyone’s posed and candid moments in a way I didn’t even imagine. The quality and turnaround time of all the photos was very impressive. You will not be disappointed with the this photography!

5 stars just simply isn't enough to show how amazing Abby is! She did our engagement photos, wedding photos and wedding video. Working with Abby is like working with a close friend, she makes everyone feel so comfortable and free to be themselves. Not only does she take gorgeous photos, but she was there to help with deciding a good timeline and answering any miscellaneous wedding questions. Abby captured each and every moment of our wedding day so beautifully. Abby is simply the best there is!

Rachel & Steve

I don’t think a review would ever be able to explain how great Abby was. She was just amazing to work with. My husband and I got married during covid and she was so supportive and really helped me remain calm and find alternatives if needed. I remember meeting with her and one of the first things she told me was she will be the boss and tell people like it is if she needs to be and I was sold right there!! I’m so stand offish that I knew she would help me get people to where they needed when and where for photos. I was introduced to Abby through an old high school friend and I’m so glad I was. Not only were her pictures stunning, but she was just the sweetest and so helpful in making decisions that I couldn’t make because of of my own indecisiveness. She got our wedding photos back in just over a month which was so exciting and just shows how above and beyond she goes for her clients! The photos were perfect and it felt like we were reliving it. I can’t wait for our video, if it’s anything like the photos, it will be amazing! I couldn’t recommend Abby enough!! She’s seriously the best!

Casey & James

I don’t feel like any review I can write will do justice for how thankful I am that I had Abby as my right-hand woman for not just the big day but the WHOLE process. From the very start, Abby made the most incredible impression; she’s professional, timely, knowledgeable, flexible, creative… and also so personable. She sincerely made us feel like her only client- making an effort and taking the time to get to know us. When it came time for engagement pictures, we were blown away. Not only do we LOVE going back and looking at the photos, but my husband and I still often look back and talk about how much FUN we had during the engagement shoot. Abby encouraged us to be ourselves and the rest was magic! Fast a few months and a worldwide pandemic later and Abby still managed to make everything so easy for us. Coordinating with us to make a schedule that made sense for our adapted ceremony and reception- this lady kept the day rolling smoothly and made it effortless for me as the bride. And just when we thought our engagement photos had been amazing, she knocked it out of the park with our wedding photos and video. The genuine happiness and joy she captured from our big day was priceless. My husband and I don’t take “serious” pictures well- Abby (and Jillian) embraced our goofiness and the true essence of our relationship and the photos and video reflect it completely. I couldn’t imagine having had anyone else by our side for the day. She was our most awesome cheerleader and we loved working with her. If you want a photographer that's 250% there for you, Abby's your gal.

Right from the beginning, we knew Abby was the perfect photographer to capture our day. Simple put, she is AMAZING! From our awesome engagement photos to our wedding day, she was such a joy to work with! She is so personable, funny, and can make anyone comfortable while taking photos. She is the ultimate hype woman and kept everything on track! With Abby you never have to worry about anything! We can't thank Abby enough for making our wedding a night to remember!

Abby was amazing to work with! We had photos and a video from our wedding day and I keep reliving that day through the video and the photos! It was a day that we will never forget and we couldn’t thank her and the second photographer enough for making it so memorable! It was so worth it!

Alex & Chae

ABBY IS FANTASTIC! It was a great experience to work with her from the initial contact through our wedding date. The global pandemic really changed our wedding plans but she was professional, understanding and accommodating. Our special day would not have been the same without her. She not only takes beautiful, lively photos but her attention to detail is impeccable. She is very kind, thoughtful and helpful. She was not only an amazing photographer but even assisted in pinning boutonnieres, adjusting hair clips/veils, offering train bundle techniques and corralling wondering family members. We would highly recommend her services for any couple who wants GREAT wedding photos (or any other event).

Abby was simply amazing to work with. I live in Virginia and got married back home in Ohio. Abby was super easy to get in touch with and would schedule phone meetings with me, we even were able to meet in person one weekend I was home. I saw Abby's work from a few high school classmates via facebook where she had photographed their weddings, and i loved how simple and precise her photography was. I love how natural and un-edited (is that a word?) her photos are. Abby and her assistant, Jillian were so easy to work with and made everyone feel comfortable the day of. I was super impressed with our wedding video, however. I HIGHLY recommend doing the photo and video package because our video is our favorite memory of our day. The video is our little keepsake from the best day of our lives and she captured everything from that day.

I have nothing but incredible things to say about Abby! She made our engagement shoot so much fun, it didn’t even feel like we were taking pictures! Her photos are breathtaking and the wedding video left my husband and I speechless and in tears! Choosing her as our wedding photographer was the best decision we made! She was like family on our wedding day. Not only did she capture every moment beautifully, but she helped organize the entire day and even helped me with my hair! Oh and did I mention she did all of this during the uncertainty of the corona pandemic! Abby and Jillianne were so kind and they are so talented. We can’t thank them enough for making our day the best day of our lives

Where do we even begin!!! Abby was hands down the best choice in vendors we could have made. She was the first photographer we met with and we knew immediately she was the one we wanted to capture our day. She was so easy to work with and cared so much about what we wanted and sure did deliver. From our engagement photos to our wedding pictures and video. She responds quickly and is so easy to communicate with. She truly put our wants first throughout the entire day. I cannot get people to stop talking about how sweet she was and how beautiful our pictures are. As much as her work speaks for itself the relationship that Abby built and how she handles herself is even more reason that we will forever recommend her.

If you're in need of a wedding photographer, Abby's your girl! Abby has provided services for my brother's family (engagement, wedding, maternity, etc.) and for other friend's special events. She was with us every step of the way in our wedding planning process. We liked that we got a chance to meet with her and see her work during our engagement session. Abby is friendly, creative, organized, flexible, dependable, and professional. She was always open to our ideas and made sure that we were getting what we wanted out of our time with her. Photos are returned promptly, and we've gotten to preview sneak-peeks even before that! She uses Facebook and Instagram, so sharing photos with family and friends is very easy. The photos speak for themselves - check out her website! My husband I and couldn't be happier.

Abby is the best photographer in my humble opinion. She knew exactly what kind of pictures we wanted for our wedding and she delivered. Abby caught every special moment and we didn’t even know she was there. She is a very professional woman yet very warm and inviting and people just respond to her. She brings out the best in everyone and you can plainly see this in her exceptional work. Our pictures came out spectacular and better than we ever imagined. Thank you Abby for capturing our wedding day so perfectly!

Abby Schafer it was an absolute honor to be able to book you in such short notice for our engagement photos and wedding day! Without you, we wouldn’t have had a seamstress, a hair stylist, a time keeper, a counselor, a friend or the ability to get the best photos of one of our most memorable days of our lives! You truly have a passion for collecting people’s most precious moments! Thank you so much for the amazing professional you are!

Paige & James

It's hard to summarize our experience with Abby in one word, but if we had to it would be: authentic. Abby captured us - our emotions, our feelings, our Big Day - so genuinely and artfully. We are ecstatic that we were able to work with her. From the first meeting, down to the last detail, Abby was a great resource and an added brain for us as we planned every last detail and organized every item. She knew to ask questions we would never think of, and it was a great asset to have all of her wedding experience to bounce ideas off of. Abby was always communicative, professional, and organized in every aspect of her work and correspondence with us. She was always consistent and timely, and reached out for any interim items. I loved the way her and her team worked on our wedding day, we barely noticed them - it is not the personality of my husband or I to have a full scale production. With Abby we got genuine moments between us, and our loved ones without "getting the absolute perfect shot" being the focus of our day. Abby got the absolute perfect shot without us even noticing it was happening at the time. We purchased both a wedding photo package from her, as well as videography. We love both. The pictures were varied, true to our personalities, and plentiful. The video has been such fun for us to watch to see moments the other person may have missed, and to experience our wedding from the perspective of our guests. I cannot imagine having worked with anyone else to capture such a special day in our lives. Abby and her team comes highly recommended by us, our families, and guests!

Abby was absolutely above and beyond amazing! From my engagement pictures to a boudoir session to our wedding day! I could not have made it through all of this with out her! She was there every time I had a ridiculous question she was honest and made suggestions I would have never thought of to help ensure we got the best photos possible which was SO important to me! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer she truly is wonderful and I highly recommend her for any and all of your special life events!

I am beyond thrilled with our engagement pictures from Abby - they are perfect in every way. I am so amazed with how she was able to perfectly capture our personalities in every shot, and how true they were to our relationship. That's my favorite part about her work, her photographs show so much emotion and depth. Our engagement pictures turned out exactly the way we had wanted and I honestly do not think we could be happier. She was even able to work really well with our adorable brat of a dog and those pictures ended up being some of my favorites. Abby is very adaptable, a true professional, and she has a gift for photography. I'm EVEN more excited for our wedding knowing she will be photographing it! Her business comes highly recommended from me!

I can't possibly put into words how AMAZING Abby and her team are. She did our engagement pictures and covered our wedding in July and I can assure you, you will not be disappointed by choosing them. I am thrilled to say that we have found the photographer that we want to be with us for every milestone going forward. Not only is her work stunning, but she ensures that your day is stress-free and will take charge of any situation in the most professional and graceful way. Abby and her assistant also did a highlight video of our entire wedding which makes us tear every time we watch it. It was wonderful to have the option for them to shoot it, because it was much cheaper than hiring a videographer (as just as good, if not better!) and we didn't feel like we were being papavrazzied on our wedding day. You can tell that Abby and her team are doing what they love, and that shines through their work. You couldn't pick a better photographer and team!

Abby was the most wonderful photographer! There aren't enough words to describe Abby and her work. She was so helpful setting up a plan for my wedding and making sure we were on the same page. We met a few times before my wedding date and she was always organized. The first time we met, I knew I wanted Abby as my wedding photographer. She has the sweetest personality and is very easy to talk to and get along with. She genuinely seems to care about her clients and does every thing she can to make the day perfect. The day of she was the biggest help and really made sure the wedding ran smoothly. Abby and her second photographer were the perfect mix of professional and caring. One memorable moment with Abby and her assistant was that the limo window was stuck open and it was pouring rain and so to keep me from getting wet, they both covered the window with their arms. They got soaked in order to keep me dry. If that doesn't tell you how much Abby cares about her clients I'm not sure what will! Finally, Abby provided us with the most beautiful pictures and video we could've asked for! She emailed the pictures in a timely manner and was really good about communicating when they would be done. In all, I highly recommend Abby! She was better than I ever expected and I can't wait to use her to capture other big life events.

I do not have enough great things to say about Abby! From our engagement photos to our wedding day, Abby was my number one go-to. Having plenty of experience, she helped me plan my day and keep us on track to make sure our day and night were flawless. She absolutely saw my vision and brought it to life! Not having a wedding planner, I would email Abby several times during the wedding planning process, and she was always quick to respond. She laid out my day of timeline and suggested the best order to do things during our reception (I had no idea). Our day was planned so perfectly, it could not have gone better. Abby is so much more than a photographer, she has a passion for weddings! She helped place my veil, put on my shoes, and even put bandaids on my feet! Aside from Abby being an awesome person, I absolutely love her work! She has such a unique vision and made us look and feel so beautiful! She made us feel comfortable during our engagement shoot. She also did a boudoir shoot for me and I absolutely loved it! I was super nervous beforehand, but again Abby made me feel comfortable and the pictures came out so classy! My husband loves them! We can not wait to see all of our wedding photos, we know Abby will make them look amazing! Overall, I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Abby to anyone needing a photographer!

I can not emphasize enough the immense value and skill that Abby Schafer offers in her wedding package. She took care of my wife and I every step of the way on our wedding day, and we have every moment beautifully captured through the photos taken by Abby. On our big day, they weren't vendors to us, they were true friends. I could give endless reasons as to why you should choose Abby Schafer for your wedding or photography session, but meet with Abby to find out for yourself!
