YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER THAT WILL...

I’m your friendly neighborhood wine and beer junkie, taco enthusiast, 8w9 on the enneagram, musician, and photographer. 

When I'm not photographing weddings, you can find me decorating my home, hitting the gym, or watching far too much Parks + Recreation. My other favorite past time includes pissing my friends off in a *not so* friendly game of Munchkin or Settlers of Catan.  

I was born on real life Te Fiti (where my Moana fans at!?) — the garden island of Kauai, Hawaii, and grew up in small town Northern California.


Hey, I'm Maliah!

not your average wedding photographer

I've thought seriously about changing my job title from "wedding photographer" to "professional third wheel extraordinaire".  It sounds much more fun, and let's be REAL - I play far more than one role through this entire process. 

Just to name a few, I'm the photographer that...
- hypes you and your honey up ALL day long. 
- cracks moderately lame dad jokes because, why not?
- brings you peace if you're stressing out on the day of. 
- makes wedding planning stress free by communicating with you quickly. 
- the photographer that dances (and takes a shot) with you and your bridal party.
- will give you outfit or fashion advice for our engagement session, and SO much more.










Sound like your idea of a killer time?

a few fun facts about me

Before I was a wedding photographer, I worked in the music industry as a ghost writer + session musician for 3 years.  

I earned my degree in audio engineering and production at Butte College in Chico, California, but decided not to go through with my BA because, can you say *student loans*.

I'm now 24 and run three companies.  I am a HUGE advocate for being able to succeed without a college degree.

a few fun facts about me

I'm the oldest of 3!
  
My baby brother towers over me, but I like to believe I can still take him in a fight.  

My baby sister will be 7 in January of 2021 and she is easily my favorite human on this earth. (Sorry Noah, she definitely takes the title.)

a few fun facts about me

I have big kid dreams of opening a nonprofit for high schoolers wanting to explore careers in audio, photo, and video production. 

My life has been shaped by incredible teachers that gave their time freely, and I can't wait to give back to my community they way they gave to me!
