“Life is about capturing the moments in time that change us forever.  A birth of a child, a graduation, an engagement, a family event, or a special moment in time to remember.  It is in the art of capturing these moments, that a photographer takes the business of photography, and builds it into a business of memories.  That is exactly what Mary Maletzke Photography does.  We had the pleasure of working with Mary on our engagement and wedding photos.  From the first conversations of what we invisioned our photos to look like, through the intimate settings for the pictures, to the final edited photo… Mary was by our side throughout the entire process.  The end result was a final presentation that brought tears to our eyes.  Mary’s professionalism, knowledge, calm demeanor, creative mindset and education, were the key ingredients that made our photography experience one that will last forever.  We are reminded of this every time we see Mary’s photographs on the walls of our home.  We highly recommend Mary Maletzke Photography for your next photo experience!”  -J.M.

As a parent and farmer I have tremendous pride in both my children and my land.  I asked Mary to capture as much of these two as she could.  Watching her work and seeing the dedication, passion, and respect for her subjects was awe inspiring.  When I first viewed my completed photographs the joy was so overwhelming that there were tears in my eyes.  Not only did Mary meet my requests she was able to tease out and magnify each child’s uniqueness while utilizing the raw beauty of our farm.  If you know what you want but aren’t the best at explaining, meet with Mary.  She is capable of capturing something more than a photograph – it is a collection of raw emotions wec can hang on our walls for years to come.  -LN 

“Mary brought a joyful mix of collaboration and innovation to my session.  She carefully listened to me and then built on that information by applying her unique talent and diverse experiences.  I was delighted with the results!” 


“Mary took the time to get to know us and find out what we wanted to convey to our customers about our historic family business, the Cle Elum Bakery.  She used her artistic vision to capture the magic and inner workings of the bakery through
her photography.  Her images both stand alone and work together to tell a story.  We are extremely pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Mary to other businesses and individuals.”  –Claudia Osmonovich, Owner, Cle
Elum Bakery


The images Mary created far exceeded anything we imagined.  My family was initially nervous – Mary and her assistant set us at ease and brought out the best in us!  We could not be happier with her absolute professionalism, level of preparedness, and ability to deliver outstanding work.  I can’t wait to display our album and hang these images on our walls!

“Mary did a wonderful job capturing the life and joy of my boys and family!  We are thankful for the time she spent with us, editing of the photographs, and the end product.  She is so talented!” –B.F.
