I wanted some updated photos of my husband and I, plus a few with our children, for our 5 year wedding anniversary. My best friend recommended Malae and I am SO glad that she did. With 2 boys under 3 and a husband that doesn't enjoy getting his picture taken, I was prepared to be stressed the entire time. Not only was I not stressed, but my husband and sons had a wonderful time and my husband said that we are never using another photographer again because this is the first time he didn't feel awkward in front of the camera. Malae was personable, friendly, and you can tell that she's passionate about being a photographer and pleasing her clients. Malae captured candid moments as well as helped us do more posed shots that didn't make us feel uncomfortable or stiff. We received our photos so quickly and I cried as I looked through them all. She captured such small & beautiful moments that I will cherish forever. Thank you for making all my family photo dreams come true!

I have never been happier with photos.
Malae helped us feel entirely comfortable throughout the process. She respected our nervousness to be in front of the camera and honored our personalities entirely. She captured us better than a photographer ever has. We have worked with photographers who clearly had their own agenda, and the process was not enjoyable. In those instances, in the end, the photos didn't even look like us. But Malae's style allowed us to be entirely ourselves. She managed to capture our personalities in a beautiful way. She was so accommodating when we had to reschedule our session due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict. Every interaction with Malae is full of kindness and understanding!
I loved the process and the product, and I could not recommend her more! And I'm sure we'll work with her again in the future!

Malae was so awesome to work with! Malae really took the time to capture our relationship, the shoot was everything we hoped for and more. We didn't feel rushed or ever on a time crunch which was so nice. She gave us so many options for back drops, clothes and poses. Now days its easy to feel like photographers are just after your money, between limited time, outfits, and edits you recieve. We never once felt that way with Malae. You could tell the shoot meant as much to her as it did to us.
I really appreciate feedback in shoots, whether its fixing stray hairs, telling us we look good or fixing awkward poses. It is so important to me to know how things are looking.
Malae is talented, sweet, creative and so much fun to work with. We were so impressed, and will definitely be using her again. Thank you again for capturing our love.

Words can't explain how much I loved my maternity pictures. Malae went above and beyond. She's absolutely talented, very professional and so sweet. I totally recommend her!

Malae is brilliant! She knows how to capture the moment and create a beautiful picture no matter what the occasion is. She is fun, laid back and very understanding when the kids don't like to cooperate. She has such a beautiful vision and really knows how to deliver our own visions. She is the best!

Malae is FANTASTIC at what she does. I could not be more satisfied with my pictures and the level of service she provided. Can't wait to work with her again. :-)

Malae is absolutely amazing at what she does! We couldn't be more in love with our engagement & bridal photos and can't wait to see what she captured at our wedding! I can't thank you enough for capturing these moments for us, we can't wait to use you in the future!

Malae was very accommodating when the Utah weather was undesirable (and then flexible and open to shooting in the snow when we decided to go full out on a snowy day). She was very comfortable with us in posing and directing the shots. Plus, she has a great range of ideas for backdrops; the snowy-powdered trees and lake that made up our photo's background was SO gorgeous! Plus, best of all, her prices are so reasonable for the quality and quantity of photos you receive. Malae is definitely someone worth hiring! :)

I have had Malae take pictures for some of the most special moments in my life. She has done anniversary pictures for my husband and I, family pictures, maternity photos and newborn photos for both of my sons. She is so patient and kind and willing to make sure I get the shots I have envisioned. She has a way of making you feel so comfortable and is able to capture some of the most tender and intimate moments. Malae is so great with the little details and has such an artistic eye. She is so wonderful to work with and always works around my crazy schedule. The photos always turn out beautifully and I have never been disappointed! I recommend Malae to all my friends and family! She truly is the best, hands down. I promise you won't be disappointed!

We have hired Malae to take our photos multiple times and have been very pleased. She is professional and does a great job at getting kids to show their real smiles. She also has a great eye for locations and shots. She is a great value when considering the amount of edited photos you receive. I have recommended her to several friends and will definitely be using her again.

I have had the opportunity to shoot with Malae twice and it is by far the greatest experience I have ever had with a photographer. She is so talented and professional and down to earth. I just love her! Her talent with photography is unreal and will never neglect to making you feel comfortable and beautiful with every frame. She is such a beautiful woman inside and out! Thank you Malae!
