Missoula, Montana photographer specializing in families, love stories, intimate weddings & elopements.

I have a bachelor's degree in photojournalism, and that is an element I bring into all my session: A documentary approach that incorporates rawness and authenticity. I have a heart for helping all people see their natural beauty. I love to capture authentic moments when individuals or couples are comfortable in their own skin, and at ease in the workplace, or with their family or outdoors.As a Missoula based photographer, I pride myself with a deep knowledge of the best hidden photo locations.

Montana born and raised, I have a deep love for this state and the people that live here. After a decade of being gone, I feel so fortunate to be able to be back in MT and in the mountains I love. My husband works in healthcare,and my 4 children are the picture of Montana kids.

In another life, I would have been a detective.


...and trusted by over 500 clients and counting. 

shouldn't the photos that represent you be unique, too?

your love is unique. your story is unique. 

I value collaboration and feedback. During each session I ask for your input and incorporate it into the session.

Here's what makes the Abigail Maki experience exceptional...

I had three babies in 8 months. Yep, you read that right. 3 babies. Toddler tantrums or weird relatives have nothing on that. When you book me, you can expect me to keep my cool in the most difficult photo situations.

I value authentic images. I make sure all my clients are comfortable throughout the session and nothing feels posed or forced. You will leave a session with me feeling like you just spent time with a friend.

I value clear and prompt communication. Before, during, and after the session you can expect a clear outline of gallery delivery, prints, location, and all other details

I take the stress out of having your photos taken-I suggest location, outfits, and even conversation points between family members or couples so they feel like they are on a date or a fun outing- and not an awkward photo session.

still wondering if i'm right for you?

I photograph adventurous, fun families and couples throughout Montana, including Billings, Bozeman, Glacier, Red Lodge, and Missoula.

Welcome! i'm abby.
