What’s something you’d love every couple to know about wedding photography?
Planning moments are great, but the best photos come from those real, genuine moments. So have fun! Be silly, tell a joke, give a twirl, have a drink, be you! That’s when we’ll work best together as a team.
What’s something couples are often surprised to learn?
That I get butterflies too! I treat every shoot both on the day and at my computer like it’s the only one I’ll do.
What do your couples say they love most about what you do?
That I make them feel comfortable and relaxed just being themselves, which makes me so happy to hear!
How do you create a great experience for your couples?
By getting into moments with them – laughing with them, crying with them and feeling all the feels in between (you should see me when the bride is coming down the aisle).
What’s your best advice for couples planning their wedding right now?
1. No one has their dream budget, so pick the things that are really important to you and focus on making those really special.
2. Create enough space in your timeline in case things run behind schedule. A lot of times the day can get a bit out of place, so I love helping couples create a schedule to make sure everything goes smoothly.
3. Let your photographer know what you’ve included in your day that is personal to you! I want to make sure I don’t miss what your sweet aunt or cousin made, or anything else that is unique to your story.

“When she takes photos, she is not only thinking about the final product, but she is stepping into a moment with us. She is noticing beauty, embracing goodness and capturing it all; and that brings her life. Because beauty, goodness, joy and the little things matter to Mal and they’re preserved for us in her work.”
I’m easy going, love to laugh and enjoy documenting real emotions and relationships in natural light. I really truly love weddings! But even more, I love hearing couples’ stories and getting to share in the sweetness of their wedding day.
