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 12+ years in the industry. Understated elegance, deeply romantic imagery with a refined art aesthetic that is greatly influenced by my love of fashion editorials. When I'm behind the lens, I intend to create soulful, tender, and evocative imagery that captures your joyful and spontaneous moments on your most precious day. These images are the beginning of your blossoming legacy together as a couple. Documenting your day with a timeless, classic approach that ensures your heirloom imagery stands the test of time and still looks as beautiful today as it will decades later.
When I am not serving my couples, you can find me happily at home with my husband, our three kids, and our sweet rescue dog, Rugby. I was born and raised in Southeastern Canada. I have a deep love of travel, family, fashion magazines, and making my infamous Virgin Island-inspired Mojitos.
We take great joy in creating a beautiful experience for our beloved couples. And this always begins with our thoughtfully curated luxury engagement and wedding style magazine that we mail to you as part of your welcome gift for joining our MVP wedding family. Every page artfully details the full process of creating authentic and editorial-inspired engagements, bridal portraits, bridal boudoir, and your wedding day photography. We love to guide you with lots of inspiration for styling, selecting the ultimate locations, wardrobe and crafting the perfect photography inspired wedding timeline.
When your wedding day arrives, we intimately document you, full of emotion, detail, and of course, beautifully curated and authentic to you. We understand how important your wedding day imagery is. Therefore, we love to work alongside our couples and their event designers to ensure that we have set aside time for all those beautiful moments that unfold on your day.

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!
