"Mist" - brief, momentary happenings; a fleeting breath
Hello, I'm Natalie Malis, it's so lovely to meet you! I am a portrait & wedding photographer based in Seattle.
My husband Conor & I met in 2009, which was around the same time that I began pursuing photography. Creating & documenting my surroundings was a means of remembering life in Hawaii, and making portraits came naturally as a part of that process. Wedding photography came into the picture in 2013 when my dad remarried and asked me to capture their big day. Something about watching someone I love rediscover a new beginning in marriage brought forth a spark in me to find & capture the connection of the two souls behind every wedding. Conor joined my team in 2015, and we have since shot weddings on the Hawaiian islands, in the Pacific Northwest, & along the east coast, including New York City where I studied photography at NYU for four years.
I approach every shoot as a story teller, with a fine art + journalistic perspective, to capture beautiful details as well as the intimate experiences & unique relationships between my clients and their loved ones.
I fully believe that memories deserve to be documented authentically & passed down to future generations. Time is so fleeting, and at the end of the day, whether it's after the wedding celebration has come to a close, or you've just sent your baby off to college, photographs are the only thing you carry with you to remember this life. That is why we exist - we are makers of family heirlooms and we want to do your story justice, so that you will remember your wedding day, & your first pregnancy, & your crazy, growing family - and so that your kids, grandkids, & great grandkids will know about you, and your love, and where they came from.
We specialize in portraiture, elopements, & weddings locally in Seattle, Washington and the PNW, but are also available for destination weddings anywhere! We are endlessly grateful to have the opportunity to photograph people & love, and we cannot wait to hear your story.
"O Lord, what is man, that You take knowledge of him? Or the son of man, that You think of him? Man is like a mere breath; his days are like a passing shadow."
