“Very Friendly & Professional”

“Malachi was great to work with, super helpful & knowledgeable helping us plan our day around Telluride. He helped us plan with ideas for shooting locations, including several different options of lakes, trails, & hikes that we could take around the area. He was very friendly & professional all day long, & even helped wrangle our dog to get the best possible photos. The photos turned out amazing! We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to elope, as he provided an all-inclusive service helping us plan the day, & provided great pictures that captured the day perfectly.”
