My name is Michael Malvitz. I am a photographer with a passion for capturing moments on camera. My interest in photography began in graduate school at the University of Michigan where I earned a Masters in Architecture. While enrolled in the architecture program, I had the opportunity to travel abroad to China where I met Christopher Makos, an American photographer best known for his portraits of Andy Warhol. My interaction with Christopher Makos, time, and travel evolved my interest in photography and turned it into a passion.
I began photographing weddings in 2009 and had the privilege of working with and being mentored by Kelli Weisman of Clever Creations Photography and Kelly Sweet of Kelly Sweet Photography. Both taught me not only how to take beautiful wedding photos, but also how the wedding industry operates. I found that the spontaneity and improvisation required as a wedding photographer make it a very gratifying experience. Not to mention, I really enjoy getting to know the couples I work with and portraying their unique personalities beginning with the engagement photoshoot to the photos taken on their wedding day. I established Malvitz Photography in 2010 and continued photographing weddings.
I moved to Denver, CO in December of 2014 and since moving to a bigger city with more opportunities, I have discovered my desire to explore different areas of photography in addition to weddings. These areas include product photography, portraits and commercial/lifestyle photography. Now that I live in such an amazing state, my hope is to embrace the Colorado culture here as much as possible by photographing what Colorado is renowned for - the incredible Rocky Mountains, local breweries and a love of the outdoors during all seasons.
When I’m not positioned behind my camera, I enjoy playing tennis and indulging in other sports-related activities. I began playing tennis at the age of 3 and was a collegiate tennis player. After moving to Denver, I spent the summer teaching tennis. I also enjoy hiking and skiing.
