Erin Malcolm Photography

The goal of Erin Malcolm Photography is to capture and tell your wedding day story by blending styles of wedding photography throughout the day. They use a purely photojournalistic approach during the getting ready time, during the ceremony, and cocktail hour. Then they capture candid moments as they naturally occur, but making small adjustments first - like putting you in more flattering light - called interactive photojournalism.

They also take traditional portraits of the bride and groom and their families, smiling and looking straight into the camera. Then moments when you’re not looking at the camera but interacting naturally, called stylized unaware photography.

What they like to do the most is let the day unfold while quietly and actively looking for moments of emotion between family and friends. Moments you will fondly look back on for years to come.
