Hi there! I’m Mala – an Auckland Wedding, Portrait & Event Photographer.


If you’ve been looking around my website, you will have worked out that people and photography are two things I love. Meeting new and different people, and photographing them is the best thing ever.

The most important thing in my life is my little family. My husband Michael plays the piano and loves 60s music. He’s the one who got me into photography and encouraged me to go to photography school. Our son Ishaan is a kung fu fighting, scooter riding David Bowie fan. He says he wants to be a photographer when he grows up. Together we love watching Star Wars movies, listening to Beatles records, drinking tea and going on beach holidays.

I’m a fan of vivid colours, lots of contrast and striking patterns. That’s pretty obvious in my photos as well as my wardrobe. Speaking of my wardrobe, that leads me to another of my favourite pass times – op shopping. I’m an op shop junkie that’s always on the look out for cool stuff from the 60s and 70s.

I have permanently itchy feet and am always up for travelling. Different countries and cultures intrigue and fascinate me. I had the time of my life backpacking around Asia, Europe as well as parts of the Africa and the US when I was younger. The friends I met on my travels are now life long ones. Two places on the top of my bucket list now are Mexico and Cuba.

That’s enough about me.


I’d love to hear from you and all about what you’re planning
