Reviews & Testimonials

Malachi photographed our vow renewal in Colorado. He was so amazing with coordination. We had a meet 'n' greet via Skype where I learned about his photography background & what inspires him, as well as shared my vision of my husband's ten year vow renewal. He offered really great recommendations locations in Colorado over our month of planning as we were from out of state. He even put together my bouquet for me. What a man of many talents! The day of our vow renewal was an adventure! Spring in the Rockies is so unpredictable and we were caught in a spring snow storm all day during our hike. But Malachi was patient, let me borrow his gloves when mine were soaked, and made sure we had fun every step of the way. The photos and video he delivered to us were exceptional and I couldn't be more happy. Thank you Malachi for giving us these memories to hold on to forever. If you're looking for an adventurous photo session or a unique way to celebrate an elopement or vow renewal, Malachi of Shell Creek Photography is the best choice.

Malachi is an excellent photographer and artist. You can tell he truly loves what he does & cares about capturing the connection between you & your loved one. He was available last minute when we happened to take a spontaneous trip to Ouray & he was really flexible and helpful in directing us to an awesome location with gorgeous fall colors. We are SO happy with our photos & can't thank him enough!

- Ashley & Patrick

Malachi is a fantastic photographer who is truly passionate about his trade. He captured our engagement session (gorgeous hike through slot canyons in Utah) as well as our beautiful outdoor wedding in the foothills of Colorado. If you're looking for a wedding photographer who is going to do a fantastic job, look no further than Shell Creek Photography!

- Jon & Madeline

Shell Creek Photography was exceptional for our outdoor Colorado wedding. We loved our adventure session & wedding with Malachi & would highly recommend him for anyone interested in making the most of using the outdoors as a back drop for their photos.
