WELCOME


First of all congratulations on your engagement! This is one of the most exciting times of your lives and I am honored that you would consider me to treasure this milestone in your lives with you. I’ve put together this guide so you can know how I work, what to expect, and know your options.

THIS IS ME


Malachi Lewis- Nebraska wedding photographer

Photography has always been a part of my life. I practically grew up outside. My favorite places to photograph couples are the outdoors. That natural light just can’t be beat! In my free time you might find me in my greenhouse tending to my orchids, in the mountains on another camping trip, in Central America on one of my travels, or just hangin’ out with my parrots.

I’m pretty easy-going & laid back. I’m usually pretty quiet and reserved, but don’t think that means I can’t take control of your crazy wedding party when we need to get those pictures done!

MY APPROACH TO PHOTOGRPAHY


I offer fine art wedding photography on film & digital. My favorite weddings are intimate ones with all the pretty florals & other details. I love elopements even more! I’m always down for a little travel & some adventuring.

One thing I love about being a wedding photographer is the connection I get to witness between two people who are ready to bring their lives together. It is truly special to witness the love, affection, and happy moments shared between a couple! I love that I get to tell the story that is unique to each couple through my camera.  I like to be an observer of your day and capture candid, real moments, but I’ll also jump right in and set up a few poses. I work to create artistic, romantic, & fun photos.

I have several options available whether you just want a few hours or a whole day of coverage. Engagement sessions are one of my favorite ways to get to know you, that’s why I include an engagement session with every collection.

I believe in the power of print. Printed photos have a value that digital photos just don’t have. I offer various printing options along with heirloom quality wedding and engagement albums.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


 How do I book?

To reserve your date you simply have to sign the contract and make the non-refundable initial payment. This can be done in person or online.

How would you describe your style?

I have a bright and warm style similar to the look of film, I might even shoot some film. I love to capture real emotions and fun moments. And I always love to create a few dramatic shots!

Who has the copyright to the photos?

I retain the copyright to the images but the contract gives you personal usage of the digital images. You will also receive a print release.

When will my photos be done?

 You can expect to see sneak peeks of your photos on Facebook and Instagram within 3 days of your wedding. Engagement photos are done within 2 weeks and wedding photos are done within 4 weeks.

Can we add on sessions or other extras after booking?

Definitely! You are welcome to add on sessions and can add on extra hours up until the time I am scheduled to leave. Upgrade your album or add extra pages. You can choose to add on an additional album up to a year after your wedding.

How does the album design process work?

I will predesign an album for you to review with the photos that I think you’d like best. Then you review it and tell me what you’d like to change. You get up to three rounds of revisions for free, additional rounds of changes are $20.

HAPPY COUPLES


Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding! We appreciate all the patience and flexibility that you provided during the time you were there with us. Your photos blew us out of the water!

-James and DarriAnn Perez 

Malachi did an amazing job with our photos! We couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. Every shot was elegant and beautifully composed. He was great to work with, he got our style right away and took care of the rest. We loved working with him and would definitely use him again.

-Travis and Megan Bernard

Malachi did my wedding in June and we could not be happier with the result! After I received the photos, albums, and slideshows I felt like I didn’t pay them enough. And if you are looking to buy a wedding album from them, make sure you buy the biggest size they got. I bought a smaller one because we didn’t think much of it, they did such an amazing job that I should’ve spent more on it.

-Elv Reys & Jorleny Tan

Amazing job! My fiance and I are awkward in front of the camera and you can’t even tell by the photos!
