    World-class photographer Tanya Arianne Malott is a seasoned storyteller who creates simple, naturally elegant images. She believes a less posed approach to wedding photography is the only way to tell a story that still feels meaningful and timeless a generation from now. There is nothing trendy or contrived about her work and the images she makes today are as timeless and iconic as the ones she made twenty years ago.

    Tanya quietly captures those intimate moments that happen in between the less obvious ones, and sprinkles in the personal details and meaningful portraits to tell a complete story. Her candid and unobtrusive approach lends itself to imagery that is unconstructed, yet refined and full of personality. At the heart of her work is an honest and joyful celebration of the multiple love stories that comprise a wedding: the stories of husbands and wives, of parents and children, of dearest friends and close siblings.

    Most of her clients are extremely private individuals and families who avoid publicity, yet invite her into their homes and lives to share some of their most sacred moments. She has formed enduring relationships with many former brides and is often called “our friend who happens to be our photographer”, including one of her earliest clients who asked Tanya to be Godmother to her daughter. A wedding is often just the beginning.

    Tanya has many years of first hand experience working in a dozen countries and hundreds of cities all over the world. She is as skilled and comfortable photographing an intimate wedding in downtown NYC as she is at capturing a destination event at a private Italian villa, a multinational gathering at a five star hotel in Paris, or a beach wedding in the Caribbean.

    Tanya’s work has been featured in the coveted “Vogue Weddings Brides Dresses and Designers”, “Vera Wang On Weddings”, and “Town & Country Elegant Weddings” coffee table books. With client permission, she has contributed to countless wedding and fashion publications including Martha Stewart Weddings, Town & Country, Vogue, The New York Times, People, New York Magazine and numerous European editorials.
