Mahlon just over delivered. He spent more time and produced more great shots than i ever expected. His post follow up was equally amazing and he is someone i can recommend without hesitation.
I worked with Mahlon on our company calendar featuring employees children and found Mahlon to be exceptional in all aspects, especially the needed patience and encouragement the younger kids needed around the photography shoots. Mahlon spent time getting to know the parents and children to build a story around the photography which made it very personal and relative. I still have the calendar in a special place as it is a work of art in my opinion....through this experience I engaged Mahlon later and also recommended him to others.
Well you guy really came through! I am stunned! Our family is very happy and we appreciate your creativity, vision, and hard work. We've had tears, laughs, and terric reminiscences and the books are as you promised. Our guy is hanging the framed items unbeknownst to the family. So there is more joy to come!

We look everyday at the photos that Mahlon took of our children 21 years ago... Mahlon at the time convinced us to have our children's photos printed as large works of art. At the time we weren't sure but we are so glad we went along with Mahlon's suggestion. Our children photographed as 1 & 3 year olds grace our walls today and look amazing. Thank you Mahlon for convincing us!
Mahlon Burch is no ordinary photographer. He has an uncanny knack of quickly being able to capture the personality of his subjects in a single sitting. We wanted him to capture us in our "happy place" at our beach house. That involved Mahlon staying in the house with us overnight. It was a pleasure to have him around. He is quirky and creative but at the same time unobtrusive. He really captured the essence of the people (my three almost adult children and my husband and me) and the place. The process of shooting was a pleasure. Mahlon has a delightful sense of humor and is able to very quickly put his subjects at ease. He has what I would call an 'original' eye and has a fresh and vibrant approach to his work. It is perfectly composed without being posed. Mahlon produced a perfectly presented leatherbound album for us which we treasure as a reminder of a particularly happy time in our lives. I like to think it will be in the family for many generations to come. It has that heirloom quality about it.

Tell your girls (staff) that the book went down extraordinarily well - a most wonderful work of art. Huge thanks to you and all involved in putting together such a masterpiece.
Mahlon, a man of endless dimension with the wisdom to see life through a child's eye.
You are the best
What a great experience! Your work, your art, is incredible. We have so enjoyed your time with us and look forward to next time.
Not only are you a great photographer (one of the greatest) but also the most fantastic baby sitter, second only to Jimmy Durante!!! (He used to babysit my husband). Your work is admired by all of us as well as your company!!
Mahlon not only has a great eye but also a great ear. He listened and understand what it was that I wanted. He has a wonderful ability to be part of the "family" and capture the sweet moments.
I have Mahlon's photograph of my two children, twenty years ago, next to my bed. I smile at it each morning. And at the memory of my photo shoots with Mahlon when he put in much time, effort and love to get to know me and my family. There is a reason that in each photo our eyes have a visible inner sparkle: partly, Mahlon has been able to capture it through his skill behind the camera. But a gifted photographer has to have something more. Mahlon has it. He helps to draw out that inner Light we each have through his kind and caring personality. When I see the way my children's eyes shine, every day in that precious photo in my bedroom, I still inwardly thank him for what he captured on film that day. He will do the same for you and for your family through his highly recommended work.

Mahlon's photography makes your heart smile and your imagination run wild. He has been able to capture moments in our families that are not only archived, but enjoyed by all. His work is distinctive and stands alone. We look forward to every new shoot to see what he has in store for all of us.
Mahlon is a dynamo, so creative and talented, and so much fun. If you can hire him to turn your family into a work of art, do. You won't regret it.
Love the Work you have done.

Great to work with a world class artist.
We've just opened your box and gazed at your masterpiece. Thank you so much - it's wonderful. The time and effort that you've put into the album is very apparent.
We had no reservations about working with Mahlon on a long distance basis. We selected Mahlon as our family photographer because his work is more original and he is able to capture the essence of each child's personality. Other factors that influenced our choice were his timing, international flexibility, fee, and follow up. Mahlon is more interested in the subject than in just photographing them and finishing the job. The relationship is an important element to him. For me, the overall experience was one of life's highlights, a beautiful experience that gave me great joy. Our children adore the albums and are full of fond Memories of Mahlon. They enjoyed the attention he gave them and their photos reflect their happy days of childhood.
I really like the kids all marching in step with the same foot forward.
I really enjoyed it and thanks for indulging me.
Had a great time, the best and most relaxed weekend with you and Donnell. You make the whole photo thing you call your job so much fun and easy.
We really enjoyed our shoots with Mahlon over the years. He got to know our children well and watched them grow up. Mahlon always worked very hard to get the perfect shots and I loved the way he would enquire around the house looking for the right spot or prop. Many of Mahlon works grace our home but one of my favourites is one of my 90 year old grandmother with my daughter Bex at 1 year old and ‘brothers in arms’ taken 25 years ago.
Thanx for a great time.
Our fun, fun, day with you was special itself - your capturing of our day, our laughter, and our love was brilliant.
Mahlon, started taking photos of our family (my brother and I) in 1993, we then hired him to take a series of photos for a PR grabbing ad campaign which he nailed. He is very creative and will capture a shot summing up the subject beautifully.
He is also extremely calm and patient, which is a must with kids, especially mine!!
I am looking forward to viewing the latest shots of my kids soon.........
Your photos ... are the most precious things I have ever seen ... you are truly blessed.
You took a photo three summers ago of Mark launching off the dock with his skateboard. That picture now hangs above his bed. Mark and I wanted to tell you how awesome we think it is. Every time we look at it, we admire the perfection in the shot. It seems totally B & W but in fact it has little splashes of color if you look closely and Mark's form is spectacular! The way the shot came out makes it infinitely intriguing, like a great piece of art from one of the masters. We really enjoy it and wanted you to know it!
After having had such a great day with Mahlon, hopping around Seattle in search of out-of-the-ordinary, clever and ultimately beautiful family photographs, I'm very happy to give him my endorsement. No standing around making stiff, awkward smiles when Mahlon is holding the camera. You and your family will have a blast, and you'll be thrilled with the results.
Thanks so much for the great books and cards. The kids loved the books and they are displayed for all to enjoy!
Everyone has been overwhelmed by the albums - and are either speechless or cannot stop raving - one or the other - about the large print. The efforts of you and your valuable crew were worth every second!
Your Photography is all about capturing the fun of "being family" or "being best friends or "loving what you do" or just "loving life. You have a unique ability to pull playfulness out of every one of your subjects. Your images are delightful and funny. They say something real and true about the people. They tell stories. I think the quality of your printing is extraordinary. Your Photography makes me smile. You and Donnell are the most amazing and extraordinary artists. You work hard and make a beautiful product. Thanks for all the great memories.
You are AMAZING. Pictures = perfect. Color = perfect. Everything is P-E-R-F-E-C-T.
To have made something out of a horse and it shows you are a genius.
Thank for the fun and for the joy you bring to our boys. I know it is genuine! They'll be in Mahlon withdrawal for a while. Until next time.
