Captured By Mallary has really made our house into a home by bringing together beautiful memories of our family. I absolutely loved my maternity shoot. Taquila was very flexible and provided great direction on how to get the best results for our photo shoot. She made the entire experience a natural one. We didn’t have to work hard to bring our real family moments into memorable portraits. Our photos were affordable and there are great printing options on the website. I appreciated the love that Taquila has for her photography because it really makes bonding with her absolutely amazing. I’m taking more photos soon.

Mallary was awesome. She helped me make arrangements for my family pictures while I was out of the state. She answered all of my planning emails in a timely manner and gave recommendations for what would suit us best. The day of the shoot she was incredibly professional and basically became one of the family. I definitely recommend her to anyone in the area looking for photos and will be using her again.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Mallary she is AMAZING! I booked her for a mini Christmas session after finding her through Google. From the moment my husband and I walked in, she greeted us with a warm smile, soft Christmas music playing in the background, and great energy.This was our first time taking professional pictures together, so as you can imagine, we didn't know what to do, how to stand, or where to place our hands. Mallary was so patient as she directed us through the shoot and made us feel comfortable.She captured so many beautiful images of us, and I'm so elated. I can't wait to send these out as Christmas cards to our family and friends. We will definitely be back for a photoshoot in the near future.

It’s always a pleasure working with Mallary! I’ve done 3 shoots with her thus far and it’s never a dull moment! You usually have to take a couple shots when working with photographers, but baby she always ask you what you want to listen to so she can blast the music during the session. There’s no way you will get uncomfortable. The TV screen is looking your way so you can see the photos as she shoots, and the mirrors are in full swing! You can see yourself and fix yourself at all times! She doesn’t rush! If you have poses you would like to try she will accommodate you. If not she’ll have some ready for you! Relax, she definitely got you! Hands down the BEST photographer in the city! She’s pricey, but it’s expected and she will surpass ALL your expectations i PROMISE you that. The quality is on 1000 no play play Periodtttttt‼️
The most professional photographer I have worked with. I had so much fun, I did realize we were actually working. All of the poses and angles were exactly the way I imagined. I highly recommend her. You will definitely be satisfied on your session day.

Mallary was amazing. I booked her for a surprise proposal shoot for my fiancee and though she had never done anything like that before she worked seamlessly with me to pull it off. We also had our dog in the pictures and she was patient and understanding and even got a "Marry Me" sign to have in the background of our pictures. Please, if you have the opportunity to have her shoot you, book! You will not be disappointed. She made me feel extremely comfortable during a very stressful time and really captured one of the most special moments in my life. I would definitely book with her again and recommend Mallary to anyone I know in the area.
