the experience

meet Malie 


      For as long as I can remember, I've always gravitated towards love and beauty. I curate art that unfolds like a story, has depth and exudes romance. My photographic approach with is soulful and tender, candid yet captivating. I'm a visual story teller capturing your most magical and raw moments. I love to create beautiful wedding day photos that are rich in detail and unique to each of our couples. Documenting your love story in the most beautiful, romantic and artistic manner so you may relive even the smallest moments again and again. 
    I'm a modern romantic, I love fiercely and have a profound wanderlust spirit.  I'm a self described Mojito (maker) expert and can never say no to afternoon of laughter and Mimosa's with friends. I was born and raised in Southeastern Canada, lived and travelled abroad and now call Virginia home with my husband,  our three children and our sweet rescue dog, Rugby. 
   Our artwork has been featured in Vogue Italia, the iconic Louvre Gallery in Paris, France, Time Square and many of the leading wedding publications including The Knot, Vow Bride and the Carolina's magazine.  Creating beautiful and romantic  imagery is what gives my heart the purest joy and I hope for your upcoming wedding day or boudoir session you will consider us for your special day.

"I cannot even put into words how much I loved Marie Violet Photography for our wedding.
When we first met, we chatted with Malie her studio for over an hour. It was like we had known her for years!  Our photos are beautiful + flawless (and just to add she was very prompt with getting them back to us). She wasn't just a photographer, she treats you like a friend and we had the most amazing time
with her. We are forever grateful for the amazing photos we will have for the rest of our lives!"

Love Notes  

I am so pleased with the wedding photos. Malie was an absolute delight to work. Her charisma instantly convinced me to hire her. My husband hates taking photos but Malie had him smiling widely throughout our engagement and wedding photos. She was organized and professional. She was easy to communicate with. She clearly has years of experience photographing weddings and couples. Taking all the photos on our wedding day was pretty draining but she made the process joyful and light-hearted. Ultimately, our photos are GORGEOUS. There are so many incredible photos we’re overwhelmed! My family is so grateful to have the day captured so beautifully. I feel like I managed to find the perfect photographer for our wedding, and I’m so grateful.


"OUR photos are gorgeous!"

Love Notes  

"Malie was not only my boudoir photographer but also my wedding photographer and I had this session as a gift to be soon to be husband on our wedding night.  She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I've never felt more beautiful. We had a wonderful time together and both my boudoir and wedding images turned out absolutely beautiful. She has an eye for detail and captures the most stunning images."

Love Notes  

If you happen to cross by the stunning and amazing work of Marie Violet Photography, then I cannot recommend her enough. From our initial conversations, I knew Malie had to document and capture our big wedding day. Her quality of work, her fun personality, as well as how she makes you feel your best in front of the camera- it has been a true joy to work with Malie. When we met for the first time for our engagement photos, it felt like we had known her for years (including steaming my dress in her hotel bathroom before photos!). Our engagement photos were incredible- as well as the overall experience. We looked like models! She knew exactly the look and vibe we were going for and nailed it! All of our family and friends are obsessed with our photos! They are honestly draw-dropping gorgeous. We are so excited for our wedding day and cannot wait to work with Malie again. I know those photos will be amazing too. 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!
                                                                Thank you, Malie! Xo



Malie was incredible. We have gotten so many compliments on the quality of our wedding pictures! I’m so happy I didn’t settle for another photographer. Malie is friendly and bubbly. She was able to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera, even though our engagement shoot was a first for us. We LOVE our photos!!!
                                                       Thank you, Malie! XOXO
