"Malin Photography offers top-notch service! Jess is professional, but VERY down to earth. We felt like “family” from the first time we met. Jess works hard to eliminate any jitters, awkwardness or anxiety one might have regarding when it comes to getting your photo taken. Jess loves what she does and it shows!"

I don't believe photography is one size fits all. I serve brides that are looking for a
 down to earth, joyful, and authentic experience.
This will help us get to know one another. We'll make sure to cover any questions you have and I can learn more about your wedding day! Discovery calls can be done over coffee or virtually!

01. initial consult

After our call I'll send over a very detailed email loaded with
 information including the contract and proposal.

02. Proposal delivery

Once the contract is signed and the retainer is received you will be officially booked!
 Time to pop the champagne and begin celebrating!

03. Sign and confirm

The process


In order to ensure greater attention to detail, I accept a limited number of weddings per year.

 I create custom packages tailored to your needs – taking into account location, wedding size, and more.

While my collections are tailored to meet the unique needs of my couples,
 my 8 hour wedding collections include:

Main photographer | Jessica Malin
Second Photographer
Gallery delivery in under 8 weeks
 Photo timeline creation
Private online viewing gallery

Yes! What a fun gift to give your future husband ;) Give him the surprise of  his life! This is typically done weeks before the wedding day to give enough time to create all the beautiful, fun, and sexy images. 

Do you offer bridal boudior?

If you don't have a place in mind, I have a list with several different places in Knoxville that are always classic locations.


Heck yea! I love the intimate feel of elopements. They are usually more relaxed ceremonies between a small group of very close friends and family.

do you photograph elopments?

After we virtually meet and you decide which collection best fits your needs you'll receive a contract and invoice with a required 25% retainer to hold your date!


I like to keep my weddings no more than 12 months out from the booking date. Most brides book about 6-12 months from their wedding date. However, I have had brides book a month before their wedding date, which I am more than happy to do if your date happens to be available on my calendar. Reach out and let me know your wedding date, and I will check my calendar and get back to you with my availability!

How far in advance do you book?

I'm a hybrid shooter, that means I shoot both film and digital. I always carry my Canon 35mm film camera and my Canon R6, 50mm, 85mm, 35mm, and 135mm, and flashes for reception.
