Beautiful, fine art wedding and boudoir photography for the modern and wildly romantic
Serving Virginia & the Mid Atlantic.
My wedding style is a beautiful blend of everything I have learned over the last decade. Understated elegance and deeply romantic imagery with a refined art aesthetic that is greatly influenced by my love of fashion editorials.
I create soulful, tender, and evocative imagery that captures your joyful and spontaneous moments throughout your wedding day. These images are the beginning of your blossoming legacy together as a couple. Documenting your day with a refined classic approach ensures your heirloom imagery stands the test of time and still looks as beautiful today as it will decades on.
When I am not serving my couples, you can find me happily at home with my husband, three kids, and our sweet rescue dog, Rugby. I was born and raised in Southeastern Canada. I love traveling, bonfires with my family, fashion, and making my legendary Virgin Island-inspired Mojitos.

Malie and her husband were absolutely phenomenal! I am so blessed that they shared and captured our wedding day experience! Malie is a joy to work with, she is so lovely, friendly and accommodating. I truly felt at ease with her. My husband and I had our memories snapped in a beautiful collage of photos, I am so impressed. While we are very simple and down-to-earth people, our photos look editorial and magnificent Marie Violet Photography was recommended to me by a very close friend and the stars were aligned...Malie was (unbelievably!) available to capture our wedding day. I honestly believe this was fate as I don't think our day could have been captured any more perfectly. I am so excited to have her capture our future memories beyond just our wedding! Her photos are beautiful, timeless, and will bring a smile to your face!

Malie is both a wonderful photographer and person. I cannot recommend her enough. From our initial FaceTime date, I knew Malie had to document and capture our big day. Her quality work, positive and fun personality, as well as ensuring you feel your best in front of the camera, it has been a true joy to work with Malie. Our engagement photos were incredible- as well as the overall experience. We looked like models! All of our family and friends are also obsessed with our photos! They are honestly draw-dropping gorgeous. Malie is so passionate about her craft. It comes across when speaking with her and watching her work. This passion is reflected in her keenness and attention to detail, as well as how much fun she has when working with you!

6. I create artwork that unfolds like a story, has depth and exudes romance. My approach is soulful and tender, candid yet captivating.

That experience, has inspired much of my art today which has been exhibited across the globe, including NYC's time square, the louvre gallery in Paris and vogue Italia.
7. If I have NOT photographed at your venue, I will make arrangements with you, the venue site coordinator, or your wedding planner to have a tour of the property pre-wedding day. I will tour the property extensively to ensure I am well-versed with the property features and have selected the BEST locations for all the formal and candid portraits throughout the day. Consider this; a teacher can enter any new school and confidently teach, just like a professional photographer can photograph a wedding exquisitely at any new venue.
