I’m Malia, born and raised in Alabama. My photography style is moody, earthy with a touch of bohemian. Photography is something I fell in love for after my husband purchased a Nikon starter camera for me which led to big things, things I would have never expected. As an Accounting student working within the accounting world by day, I decided to dive straight into the photography world because my passion for it developed so quickly!


I have been photographing for almost three years now and I suppose that you could say Weddings and Couples are my specialty. I absolutely love capturing the love between two people, the moments and every emotion.

I love sunrises and sunsets, a moody sky and the stars at night. I’m all for the views!

I’m a coffee addict, and I mean it. I must have at least two cups per day. So, if we meet, prepare for it to be over coffee.

I’m a free spirit, a lover of florals, airstreams and everything vintage.



I’m an animal lover with a passion for rescue. I have a six fur children total! I know, I know- that’s a lot! Wait, you can never have too many dogs! Total dog mom here!


There’s one thing I look forward to gaining after each session and that is friendship! Prepare to dance to tunes during your session, laugh your heart out, be authentic and I’ll dance along as well while capturing your moments!

A goal of mine during this journey is to leave each session/wedding with a new friendship. 

So, I want to share a few things that my clients that have worked with me have to say! I share this to help you make your decision when choosing the person that is going to be your story teller!


Malia is one-of-a-kind. She is so passionate about what she does. Her passion shows so strongly through her work. Malia truly wants to create beautiful images as well as foster a memorable experience for you. She takes the time to get to know you and genuinely cares about you and your family. That’s not always easy to find. You won’t regret scheduling a session with her and may even leave with a new friend. I highly recommend Ivory & Grace Photography.

If you’re looking for more than just the average photographer experience, Ivory & Grace Photography is exactly what you need! Malia is a wonderful person who puts her heart and soul into every session. She photographed my engagement and our wedding, her husband filmed our wedding. The photos and film have literally brought me to tears. They captured beautiful candid moments that I will treasure forever. I have also formed a wonderful friendship with Malia that makes those photos even more precious. Ivory & Grace Photography is the only photography business I use and am completely happy with their work.

I was so lucky to find Malia through one of my best friends. I had no idea just how good she was going to be! She is the most amazing Photographer that I have come across in my life! My husband and I got our engagement photos done by Malia and they exceeded our expectations. A friend of mine gifted us a session and I was very nervous about the session, but she made us feel so comfortable and we were blown away! I am so grateful to have flawless photos to look at and cherish forever. I suggest Malia to all of my friends and family, and will never use anyone else. Thank you, Malia!

The first time I met Malia I knew she was going to be exactly what we were looking for in a photographer. I could tell we would feel at ease taking pictures with her- and it showed in how beautiful our engagement photos turned out! We loved how natural she made us feel in front of the camera, and the way she was able to shoot the candid photos truly captured the essence of our love. And best of all she managed to include our dog in the pictures too! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Ivory & Grace Photography. Looking forward to our wedding day!
