Hi! We're Abigail and Andy. We're a husband and wife, best friends and wedding, boudoir and lifestyle photographers. We are obsessed with tacos, antiquing, and Sci-Fi Movies. You might be wondering if Gingerale is our last name. The real story behind the name comes from a nickname that Abigail acquired early on. Her middle name is Ginger and the nickname "Abigail Gingerale" just stuck.
In addition to being wedding and boudoir photographers in New Jersey and absolutely loving our jobs, our family is, by far, our greatest passion. Our daughter, Lucy, is our captivating little girl who is always ready for her close up. When we aren't working, we are having pillow fights and playing Minecraft with our little Lucy. You might also find us teaching Lucy how to catch Pokémon while simultaneously reliving our childhood dreams of being Pokémon trainers. When we're not chasing after our little bundle of energy, we are being inspired by our amazing clients who allow us to capture fantastic moments in their lives.
We started this business because we're passionate about creating amazing artwork while serving and loving people. We strive to provide the best experience available to clients today. We believe that natural, REAL moments are the moments you'll want to remember the most. When we tell your story, you will be able to look through the pictures from your big day and feel every single emotion all over again. So let's grab a cup of coffee together. We'd love to hear all about how you met, when you knew you fell in love, and all about the incredible future you're building together.

The best photographers ever!!
Wow!! Where do I begin? This husband and wife team blew me away from the very beginning. Friendly, artistic, responsive, my husband and I knew they were a perfect match for us. We fell in love with their style and immediately felt comfortable with them as well. Our engagement session was incredible. It’s included in the package and it’s a whole event in itself!! Abi and Andy go above and beyond normal wedding photographers. The engagement session was a few hours, with multiple locations and outfits and made it so we were able to include our beloved cat as well! I was genuinely excited to spend time with them when our big day came!! They came up with lots of fun ideas and kept us smiling the whole day. They caught so many beautiful, genuine moments and were never intrusive during the ceremony or the first look. Most importantly, we love all 1000 of our photos!!! Abi and Andy host a photo reveal party at their studio for you to unveil your wedding photos and it was a special way to relive the day. I can’t recommend them enough!!! I was so happy we booked Abigail Gingerale for our wedding!Sent on 07/21/2019

What a Journey!
Wow! I am so thankful for this entire experience beginning to end; but there will be no end because we plan to keep in touch with Abigail and Andy and continue to have them capture our memories, especially once we start growing as a family!Sent on 11/12/2018
We met Abigail and Andy through a referral from my maid of honor, who has been my best friend for 20 years. I remember her saying, “I know this really great family who used to visit my old job at the eye doctor’s office and I’m pretty sure they have a photography business”. We then dug into their website online and were blown away! The take away message here is that this referral was based on two really great humans and their work, it’s the icing on top!
The response to our first email inquiry was immediate. After our consultation, it was a no brainer! Not only did we get such a positive vibe from them, but their work was phenomenal, and their packages were top notch compared to what we had previously encountered thorough research and other consults.
Our package included an engagement session. We began in our home with some lifestyle photos on our couch and making coffee in our kitchen (which is one of our favorite things to do). We also got to do some couples boudoir shots in our bedroom, took some beautiful fall photos on our front lawn, traveled to the Plainsboro preserve, and finished with some cool night-time shots in Princeton. This entire session was endless and felt effortless. We will cherish these memories forever especially since this was our first home together. We ended up using some of our outdoor photos for our wedding invitation and no one knew the shot was on our front lawn (we live in an apartment complex!). By the end of the night, we felt super comfortable and were positive we made the best decision to have Abigail and Andy as a part of our Journey.
That night, we shared that we had plans to brew our own beer at a local brewery for our wedding and to our surprise, Abigail and Andy offered to come and document this cool experience which was about 9 months out; and they did! It was another opportunity to bond and get to know each other a bit more while learning about the beer making process.
In that same week, Abigail helped me coordinate a surprise boudoir photo shoot for my soon to be husband. It included hair and makeup and a beautiful album that I gave my husband the album the day of our wedding. The team was able to get his ear to ear smile when he opened his surprise gift.
The wedding day went without a hitch. Abigail, Andy, Ralph, and Noah were the dream team. They were not only our photographers but jumped in literally whenever someone needed a helping hand. Abigail rode to the venue with me and my mom and helped us carry things with camera in hand and all! Back at the hotel, Andy was helping one of our groomsmen iron his shirt! When we were taking portraits at the venue prior to the ceremony, we realized the groom didn’t clear out the room that we were supposed to check out of. They got in touch with my maid of honor who was in a different part of the grounds to call the hotel and square that away. During the reception, Abigail took bobby pins out of her own hair to fix mine and make sure my hair band wouldn’t come out during our dance performance! Abigail and Andy helped us keep our cool on so many different occasions and you can definitely see this transpiring in our photos!
Exactly two months after the wedding, we had an incredible reveal party. Abigail and Andy opened up their studio on a Friday evening and allowed us to invite family and friends over for this special event. We brought food and drinks and got to relive our entire wedding day. Abigail and Andy put our photos up on a projector and mocked up an album and wall art for us. This was the first time anyone, including us, had seen any photos. It brought back the tears, laughter, and joy we felt that day.
The question here is, what don’t Abigail and Andy do! Stop looking! Lovely couple, unique vision, and exceptional work. We can't thank you enough!

my review was way to long so if you would like to read the whole thing please check out their facebook page.Sent on 05/28/2018
Their attention to detail is like no other (Gabe had some dust or dirt on his suit and Andy came flying out of nowhere to dust it off before they took a photo) and they will do whatever they need to do to get the shot. At one-point Abi was actually climbing into a tree to get a photo during the ceremony! It was amazing. Their artistic eye is also amazing, its why we hired them. We LOVE the photos they take, do yourself a favor and listen to what they say. You might think it’s going to look weird, or you might be in an uncomfortable position (like laying on a bench) but please don’t question their ability to see something you can’t. You will not be disappointed!! Hire Abigale Gingerale Photography you will not regret it!
Abigail is truly a pleasure to meet. I see all of the photos here on the west coast. She is sought out for her photography. Stunning and captivating, every picture is a work of art. Truly one of the best photographers in the nation. You will be extremely thankful to have her at your event. You'll see when you get the pictures. I'm a huge fan.
We had the pleasure to work with Andy & Abby from Abigail Gingerale Photography at a wedding this past weekend. We were very impressed. They were dressed impeccably, incredibly communicative, flexible, great with time management, professional, friendly, and just an all-around JOY to spend time with. They clearly care very much about their craft and about their customers. We have already added them to our preferred vendors list and will be recommending them out in the future. Can't wait to work with you guys again!!
Very warm, organized and Priced right!
