Working with Mallory
Prior to the Session
I strongly believe in establishing a relationship with my clients prior to our session. Life is all about being awkward and what to say/do at the right time. I love to break that barrier and have an amazing experience! Prior to your photography session, I will guide you through the experience of Mallory Walker Photography. From hair/makeup recommendations, to outfit recommendations and location scouting, my goal is to make each individual feel completely trusting with me, my style and my photography.
Day of the Session
Portrait Clients: I will keep in close contact with you prior to the session to ensure all day-of plans are succeeding, weather is permitting and everyone participating is relaxed! If your heart desires, grab a glass of wine [or beer, for our guys] prior to the session to loosen your threads.* I'll help with any last minute outfit changes and also ensure all parts will be at the session. If you wanted a flower crown, we're on it. If you ordered a cake, we're on it. Giant snowstorm coming in, we're on it. We are your best friend and closest partner the day of your session!
Wedding Clients: As this anticipated day arrives, I will ensure all aspects of our session have been confirmed prior to the day-of the wedding. This is your day to relax, love and have fun. We will be there to capture each precious moment of your day and be a guiding light for the schedule, if needed. Our session will be complete with a detailed time sheet for your event, as well as a "must have" list of images and the best part, ease of mind that your beautiful, anticipated and memorable day is being captured by your friend and entrusted sidekick.
Darn! Its over. No worries- we haven't forgotten you! After your session, I will immediately download and backup your images on my trusty sidekick I like to call "the spaceship." I will begin the process of culling and editing your images to produce a packaged gallery of your final images. Within a few days, I will post a blog about our time together, with a few of my favorite images. Once this blog has been posted, you will receive an electronic gallery to view of all your images. From there, you will be able to purchase prints, USB drive and albums.

What's your story?
I have been taking photos for artistic purposes since 2011. I was blessed to be a media counselor at my lifelong camp, Pine Cove. I was able to have a DSLR and video camera in my hands at all times. It was there where The Lord spoke to me and showed me a beauty I had never seen through the eyehole of a lens. Once I got back to college, I decided this was my heart. I received my first DSLR that Christmas and have been shooting ever since! Before what we are today, we were Mallory Olivier Photography in Texas. Now, we are a working LLC and relocated to Colorado! (we still travel :))
What's in your bag?
Canon Products are my absolute favorite companions for my business. My bag has the following:
Canon 5D Mark III
Canon 50mm Lens (my favorite!)
Canon 85mm Lens
Canon 24-105mm L Series Lens
Vivitar 683 Flash
Various SanDisk CF and small memory cards
Lots and lots of candy, for the child in all of us :)
I don't have a wedding planner, is that ok?
No worries! As a photographer, we all have a little control-freak in our head :) I can help with planning, styling, timeline and wedding day coordination.
Do you have insurance?
Of course! I would never put my equipment in anyone else's hands but mine. That way, our day together is spent carefree, fun and loving!
