Ashley + Koda | Spring Wedding at Sowell Farms by Mallory Kennedy

If you are a fan of camels, a Cinderella carriage, and white Oriental lilies- you have arrived!

Ashley and Koda are the best— according to the maid of honor, she’s been sneaking notes into his locker since the 5th grade. I cannot think of a better ending for a princess, can you?

Ashley, it was my greatest pleasure to be your wedding photographer and friend through the years. You are an absolute queen and I am so excited to deliver these images to you.

XO-

Inner Radiance | Essential Oil Card Deck by Mallory Kennedy

Samantha Sheets created a card deck that I believe is going to light the way to any person that seeks to come home to their inner radiance. She paired every card with the perfect essential oil for each affirmation- a beautiful fuse of the senses while practicing self care. Essential oils are a staple in my own personal self-love practice and I am so excited to see them incorporated in this way. I love the images that we created together and cannot wait to see these stunning affirmation cards make their debut.

shoot her an email to save a deck for yourself! (samantha_danielle@hotmail.com)

Jaime + Davis | Salt Lake Lovers by Mallory Kennedy

Jaime + Davis fell in love on the slopes 5 years ago and freakin love being “fully pitted” in some “fresh pow pow” together— did I say that right?

My boyfriend and Davis have been best buds since they were in diapers, so when Richie told me we were going on a ski trip to see Dave and his awesome fiancé Jaime, I knew my camera was coming with. These lovebirds are tying the knot in Cali in June— I am positive I overheard Jaime say she plans on waterskiing to the aisle…

Senior Portrait Session with Jade by Mallory Kennedy

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—if you experience a milestone in life, make friends with a photographer. Those iPhone selfies of you are HOT- and I am a firm believer that you should absolutely share your angles with the world. However, when it comes to your first impression in the business world or choosing something big— nothing compares to having clean, crisp, and high quality photographs.

Jade graduated from the University of West Florida (go argos!!) and asked me to document this milestone for her. We had a blast running around campus and then perusing downtown in the beautiful Pensacola, Florida. She was literally glowing- I thought it was a cool effect from my camera at first but alas it was Jade all along… I mean is she not stunning? Here are a few of my favorite portraits from this session.

January Styled Shoot | The Ridge Venue, Asheville, NC by Mallory Kennedy

I moved to Asheville, NC a year and a half ago with the intention of beginning my career as a wedding photographer. In a matter of a few months, I had the privilege of forming some amazing relationships with some of the best vendors in the city. I reached out to some of my favorite vendors in hopes that they would be willing to contribute. I am so proud of what we created together and so grateful for their willingness to collaborate.

There are so many elements from this shoot that I adore. The vintage fur coat, the FLOWERS, the perfect table set up and invitation suite, and that sweet Dodge 47- everything came together so wonderfully and I am so thankful to each vendor for their donation.

rock climbing in joshua tree and red rock by Mallory Kennedy

When I first met Richie, I stalked his Instagram as any sane millennial would do and discovered that he was super into outdoor rock climbing. I remember thinking “You couldn’t pay me a million dollars..” Fast forward a year and I am climbing massive rocks out in the most beautiful place I have ever been- Joshua Tree in California. We woke up at 6am Sunday morning as the sun was rising. Wolves were howling close by at the full moon and the sky was streaked with pink and orange light. We trekked through the dry desert terrain and made way towards the towering prehistoric rock ahead.

I didn’t bring my camera with me much on the routes throughout the trip, but I did manage to capture a few of some really amazing moments. The second set of images is Richie rappelling from an epic 12A route that he had just sent. The landscape in Red Rock is overwhelming. I cannot wait to go back.

Bailey + Chris | Couple's Session at Sunset Cliffs, San Diego CA by Mallory Kennedy

Bailey has been a close friend of mine for some time now. A wedding photographer herself, I have had the opportunity to second shoot for her on multiple occasions. Bailey and Chris just had a baby girl together and I cannot wait to meet their newest addition. I am so grateful to have been able to document this special time before they added baby Tyler into their lives.

I love this session of the two of them at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego. The navy blues of the water and the rich oranges from the cliff combined with their candid loving moments make for one epic session.

Ashley + Alex | Pensacola Wedding by Mallory Kennedy

Ohhhhh this couple y’all.

I could say so much —- Ashley’s kindness and aesthetic was ideal. Alex’s love for her and their son Beckett was so incredible to see— there is nothing cooler than a man that clearly lives with their heart leading them. Genuinely very cool people that I would like to drink beer with.

I love these images— the pink tones in her wedding details, BECKETT IS SO CUTE, their portraits and their super fun reception. I had a ball with them and their family and am so grateful to have been able to work along side such incredible clients and vendors.

((Stephanie at the Lee House is the best planner I have ever worked with— this woman HUSTLES and seems to be everywhere at one time. It is always a treasure working with you Steph!!))
