I first hired Malinda to photograph our wedding. I did not want staged pictures. I loved the fact that she was a photojournalist and would document our wedding in a way that would capture the emotions, movement and images like no stills could. Fast forward 25 years to today. Malinda not only gave me the wedding album of a life time, she has since documented the birth and growth of our daughter, the trials and tribulations of my husband as a fireman (we had no idea this was her passion when we met), and even captured corporate head shots for projects I led.
What I will say about every shoot with Malinda is that she works hard to find the emotion under the surface. She over delivers on every promise. She gives so much more than you expect.
What I will rave about are her images. A silhouette of me dancing with my father so we never grow older. My child being tossed in the air snapped at just the right moment to see the eruption of laughter on her face. My husband beaming with pride along side the men he serves with every day.
