Pauls' words: I have had experience with Erin Malcolm Photography on many occasions, and have found the quality and professionalism to be remarkable each and every time. Erin has done portraiture for our family on several occasions, from Senior Photographs of all three of our children, to Family Holiday Portraits, to Special Occasions. Her creativity and insight into the individual personalities of her subjects have effortlessly made all of the images unique and truly reflective of each of their natures. Our son is on the autism spectrum, and often has difficulty with facial expressions, but Erin's coaching and patience made his portraits first class. In every case, they do not like cookie-cutter shots that you see in every portfolio. It's truly like having a personal family photographer. Having experienced such great response for our family needs, I turned to Erin for help with adding Staff Portraits and Head Shots, as well as key candid shots in the office, to reflect our niche architecture firm. The photos from Erin Malcolm Photography really bring our office to life on our website, and we couldn't be more pleased. Lastly, Erin and Jeff Malcolm have been working closely with our office on Architectural Photography, for our portfolio and website. Photographing architecture is a completely different endeavor to portraiture, as the photographer is often trying to capture space, not an object. Both Jeff and Erin have exceeded expectations in carving out the skills necessary to document our professional body of work. In all cases: personal, family, business, and professional, Erin and Jeff are easy collaborators; they genuinely listen to what you're looking for in an image, what the picture will need to say, and then apply their considerable talent and skill to interpreting that ambition into the frame and onto the page (or screen). I cannot recommend Erin Malcolm Photography highly enough.
Saratoga Springs, NY
Vanessa's words: Erin Malcolm is the epitome of a professional yet personable photographer. I set up a surprise session for my sister's three young kids, and Erin immediately connected with each one. They said they felt like celebrities doing a photo shoot! Erin instinctually and perfectly captured each one of their unique personalities, and we are just thrilled with how the pictures came out! We have used Erin to do each of our children's Senior portraits, and she is as talented at photographing young children as she is old ones. The pictures of my nieces and nephew are priceless, beautiful, and nearly brought tears to my eyes. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with everything about the session and the photographs!
Saratoga Springs, NY
Lauren's words: If it was possible to give more than 5 stars, that is how I would review Erin! We love her!!! Started off doing our engagement photos, then wedding, then both of our childrens' 1st birthday (individual and family) shoots. She is not only professional but quickly became a close family friend. She (always) responds within a few hours, via email and text, and is also very quick with the end product. Most recently she shot my daughter's 1st birthday photos and was amazing. I am beyond happy with the outcome and so impressed how she was able to not only get my 2 toddlers to smile and laugh, but have a great time while doing it! We love Erin and will continue to use her to capture all of the important moments in our lives!

Laura's words: Erin is a wonderful photographer with such a great eye for poses, lighting, and scenery! Her warm, charismatic demeanor puts everyone at ease, and the entire session with her was so much fun! The photos were beautiful, Erin's communication was wonderful, and we got the pictures even sooner than expected. This was a wonderful experience from start to finish, and Erin is such an amazing professional to work with! Thank you so, so much!
Saratoga Springs, NY
Betty's words: I am so very happy today as I had Erin Malcolm Photography take a photo shoot of myself with my 5 grandchildren. We met in Saratoga on November 14, 2021, and I am so happy with our experience. I cannot wait to view the results of the many pictures of myself with my family. Erin was so wonderful and I am so happy to have met her just this year. She was so great at putting us in many different places for such a lovely late Autumn shoot. She also took many pictures of other family members who happened to come along for the photo session. Erin was extremely professional and I was so happy that she called my family members by name! My grandkids are older; ages 17-27 and she was great with them all. Thank you Erin...looking forward to having you again someday!
Lori's words: We had a fantastic photo shoot yesterday with Erin! I have a large family (five kids) and she was so gracious and professional, accommodating us and being sure to include all of the shots we wanted. This session was very special because my mom, "Nana," has always wanted a professional picture taken with her 5 grandchildren. She organized everything with Erin and they were able to find a perfect time and place for us to meet. Erin greeted each one of my family members by name and even figured out their birth order, which is tricky because they are close in age and all look very much alike! She was super friendly and put everyone at ease so we all had fun with this shoot! She had great suggestions for unique shots and was willing to take all the pictures we wanted. I will always be grateful to Erin and to my mom for this incredible gift. My family will cherish these precious pictures for years to come. Highly recommend!!!!

Ashley's words: Erin was so kind and patient with our boys. She was very thorough and never made us feel rushed. Just a fantastic experience. Our pictures came out absolutely beautiful!
Lamour maternity session
Rose Garden, Schenectady, NY
Sydney's words: We hired Erin Malcolm Photography to shoot our maternity photos and couldn't be happier with the phenomenal photos and service from her. We have known her for several years as we were previously neighbors and had seen the photography sessions she had for seniors, weddings and personal headshots. She is such a pleasure to work with and makes you feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera. We had a certain vision for the photos and she delivered! She was even able to help us narrow down a great venue that would provide the best backdrop. Erin got us the photos back in a timely manner so we could share with family and friends. We can't wait to have some framed! If you are looking for maternity photos, or really any professional photos taken, look no further. Erin comes highly recommended!
Saratoga Springs, NY
Sara's words: We were visiting my mom in Saratoga and she arranged a family photo shoot with Erin. A photo shoot with a fiercely independent toddler is no easy feat, but Erin made us feel so comfortable and was so patient, understanding and flexible throughout. She gave just the right amount of direction - she told us where to stand to get the best lighting, when to adjust our poses, where to look - but not so much that our photos ended up looking overly staged. She was able to capture our joy (and some toddler tears) and we love all of the photos! Would highly recommend!
S. Glens Falls, NY
Mary's words: I'm so grateful to Erin for helping make this family photo session a reality. She picked a great location and the photos are beautiful. We did a 4 generation photo, a family photo and several other combinations. On top of that, she did individuals of my grandson! I'm in love with all the photos, which is going to make choosing very difficult! She is professional, visionary and so fun to work with. If you're thinking of having family photos taken, I highly recommend Erin Malcolm Photography. You'll be so happy with the results!
Clifton Park, Mohawk River Country Club
Joyce's words: Erin was simply amazing! She was responsive to our crazy schedules and she went the extra mile by finding the perfect location. Erin has great integrity and professionalism, a fantastic eye, and artistic flair. Her prices are fair and she didn't rush through the session, but took the time needed for the best shots with natural lighting. I would highly recommend Erin Malcolm Photography. The photos brought tears to my eyes! She captured our family essence with great skill and was a joy to work with! The Parkers
Alysha's words: Erin photographed our 10th wedding anniversary party. She was so great from start to finish. The room we were working with was limited with good spots to get great pictures without stuff in the background that would be distracting. She took the time to take practice shots to find the perfect angles. We had 25 people attend and we wanted everyone to have an opportunity to get some great shots. She was so patient and kind throughout the entire process and really made everyone feel comfortable. I would 100% recommend Erin for all your photography needs. I know we will be booking her again!
Amanda's words: We did our first family shoot with Erin and she was great! Before we even decided that we were going with her, not only did she send us the basic pricing, links to her website etc, she also sent information on helpful tips and tricks; something she definitely didn't have to do. She was extremely responsive and flexible leading up to shoot. Once we met her at the location, we were all very comfortable with her. She has the best calming, friendly personality. We had a toddler and pup with us and she just went with it, at the same time giving direction without making us feel like we didn't know what we were doing - which is important! We had so much fun with her!! I really appreciate her time with us. We'll be using Erin in the future for sure!
Mabee Farm, Rotterdam Junction, NY
Kacey's words: Erin was fantastic! This was the first time my daughter and I had gotten professional pictures taken and Erin made the experience soo fun and comfortable. She really was able to capture our relationship in the photos and I will cherish them forever! I would recommend Erin for any type of photo session.
Alysia's words: Erin was so incredibly great to work with and we just received our gallery and we LOVE it. She did an excellent job capturing all the details of our baby girl's first birthday. It went so quickly, but she captured all the little things in breathtaking images so we can always remember it. We have beautiful moments with friends and family that will now last a lifetime and cannot recommend her services enough. She was incredibly responsive, prepared, and professional, but also easy going and easy to work with. Just wonderful - thanks Erin!
UAlbany campus, Albany
Cassie's words: I cannot express how amazing Erin is! When we first reached out to Erin about doing our BFF photo shoot, it was just a crazy idea we had! Erin took it and ran with it! For months, Erin was in touch with us asking us to send her inspiration and she did her own research and shared her ideas with us! When it came time to meet Erin for our photo shoot, it felt like we already knew her! She truly made our dream come to life. I had the complete time of my life and I can see that in the photos Erin took. Throughout the whole shoot, she was coming up with different ideas and made sure we were comfortable the entire time. She took our idea and ran with it. I'm so happy I have these photos to look at forever to continuously remind me what an amazing time this was. Every girl needs to grab their BFF and do one of these shoots with Erin! She will not disappoint!!
Saratoga Springs, NY
Jen's words: My crew was reluctant to get family photos. They did it for me. Everyone was so pleasantly surprised the day of the photo shoot when we met Erin and immediately felt like a family friend. She put everyone at ease with her personality. We actually all laughed and had fun! The result was a complete online gallery of all our amazing photos! Our family photos came out beautiful and now there are so many great shots to choose from to display in our home.
Flynn family members
Saratoga Springs, NY
Joelie's words: Erin shot my Senior photos several years ago and they were amazing. When my siblings and I decided to do a siblings photo shoot to surprise our parents for the holidays this year, Erin was the only person we would trust! Her help with planning (venue, styling, clothing, etc...) and attention to detail during the shoot is unmatched. Just as we expected, the photos turned out amazing. If you need photos of any kind, I highly recommend Erin!
Aaron's words: My siblings and I wanted to surprise my parents with a sibling photoshoot, so the obvious choice was Erin. She put together a gift that my parents will never forget and we couldn't be more grateful! Look no further for any photography needs, people.
Emily's words: We used Erin Malcolm recently for a sibling photo session to surprise my fiance's parents and it was wonderful! She had so many ideas on what would look good and she helped us with everything from what to wear during the shoot to how to pose for pictures. She's great at making you feel comfortable and the pictures we received were of such high quality. She was quick to respond to any questions we had and was a blast to work with. Erin even did a mini engagement session for me and my fiance, which was such a fun surprise! Thank you Erin!
Gramuglia anniversary party
The Stockade Inn, Schenectady, NY
Pam's words: Erin brought an extremely high level of professionalism and personalization to our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary party. She customized in advance the setting of family portraits to be taken formally as well as made herself invisible throughout the evening on the dance floor and around the room capturing so many special moments. Her smile was captivating and welcoming and she made everyone feel so comfortable. She provided the highest of quality photos for us to choose from. We have an album of this special memory to cherish for always. Thank you so much Erin!
Shannon's words: Erin Malcolm Photography has been our go-to photographer for all of our family photos and special occasions. Erin and her husband, Jeff, are a wonderful team with a much appreciated ability to handle the important details leading up to, and on the day of, the photoshoot. They are an absolute pleasure to work with and possess a natural ability to get candid shots with great lighting. Erin's eye for detail is hard to match and we are thrilled to continue to use them for all of our photography needs. Thank you for all that you do, Erin & Jeff!! Love, The Caporales
Deb's words: Erin Malcolm did such an amazing job capturing the personality of my entire family!! It is not easy to be able to photograph a family of 5 plus a baby and a dog. She spent so much time with us and actually photographed every possible combination that I wanted. She was so flexible with our photo spot and actually switched things at the last minute due to rain in Saratoga Park. Everything was moved to my backyard and she found the perfect spot and actually made my property look very picturesque!! Erin has a very warm personality and within no time she seemed like part of the family!! She was able to shoot all of us bringing out our best angles and features!! As a woman of 51, with three picky daughters, that is not an easy task! These pictures are a dream come true for me as now we will forever have a family legacy as the children grow, and beautiful shots to remember that moment in time!! Thank you so much, Erin!!!
Jackie's words: Erin Malcolm was very professional in her work and also read into the spontaneity and happiness of the moment. She showed patience with a large group of silly people, and since our photography was done outside on family property, she showed great creativity in staging us in various sites on the property. She sent us a gallery very quickly and we were very pleased with the quality of service we received.
Lisa's words: I recently had Erin do a photo shoot of my family. She had great ideas about backgrounds and positioning all of us. I would have just stood in a line! Very creative and fun photos. I'd definitely recommend her; she was very organized, very prompt, very professional and made my family feel very comfortable during the session. Looking forward to another event where I could call on Erin again!
Queen's words: Can't say enough good things about Erin, the service and quality of products that we received. She came to our home and chose just the right settings for us to be photographed for our 40th Anniversary. She was very professional, arrived right on time, and gave us all the time that was needed to get our photographs just right. This was meant to be a gift to our children as well as to ourselves. The quality of the finished product was wonderful - vibrant colors and lighting that captured us and our home perfectly. I highly recommend Erin Malcolm Photography to anyone who wants a wonderful keepsake to enjoy for years.
