This is me...

Hey! My name is Malachi & thank you for your interest in my photography services!

I practically grew up outside. My favorite places to photograph couples are the outdoors, I'm all about outdoor weddings & adventure elopements! In my free time you might find me in my greenhouse tending to my orchids, traveling the world, 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 photography

I offer fine art wedding photography on film & digital. My favorite weddings are intimate ones with the focus on YOU the couple! 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.

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 usually expect to see sneak peeks of your photos within 3 days of your wedding. Engagement photos are done within 2-3 weeks and wedding photos are done within 4-6 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.

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 & 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 & 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! Both my new husband and I are quite awkward in front of a camera and Malachi took such amazing shots no one can tell. He did our engagement and wedding photos both of which are still being praised by our family and friends. He caught our favorite memories of the day that will forever be cherishes. Best of all we received our pictures within a month of the wedding and even received multiple shots the morning after!
