“I highly recommend Mallory as a mentor! Being very new to photography, I wanted to learn all that I could from a very basic to an advanced level but wasn’t exactly sure where to start. I have followed Mallory Dawn’s work for a while and reached out about her mentorship. Her response was very timely and welcoming, making me feel comfortable with her from the very beginning. Within 24 hours we had setup a meeting. With Mallory’s friendly and open personality, I felt so supported while working together. We chatted about all things from camera basics to advanced Lightroom editing and branding, I was able to lead the meeting with any and all questions I had. One of my favorite parts about my mentorship with Mallory is that she continues to open herself up as a resource even after the initial meeting. Mallory is truly about supporting other photographers and brings so much knowledge from a photography background. I am so pleased that I get to be a mentee with Mallory!” – Helene Dellavalle 

"I absolutely loved my mentoring session with Mallory! I'm so grateful that she was willing to take time out of her busy schedule to answer my questions and provide feedback and guidance. She was so helpful and encouraging and gave me some great tools to help me move forward in my journey with film. She was so sweet and easy to talk to and I truly felt like I could ask anything and she would be able and willing to provide input. Thanks a million Mallory!!” – Nicole Jansma


"I started following Mallory on Instagram and I fell in love with her photography
 style. I am primarily digital but wanting to expand to film, which is when I chose Mallory as my mentor. My virtual session via Facetime with Mallory was really helpful, she was able to answer all my questions about my camera, as well as pointing me in a positive direction towards film. I felt very comfortable asking questions & talking to Mallory. I am happy with my experience mentoring with Mallory she is very sweet and responsive, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a mentorship!” – Trisha Thorne

“When I first contacted Mallory, I was at a turning point in my business. I was pregnant with our third child, I had been shooting digital for many years, and was feeling creatively drained and uninspired. I had toyed with the idea of shooting film and adding it to my workflow but had no idea where to start and how to successfully and seamlessly add it to my wedding photography. Speaking to Mallory was how I gained the confidence to pursue my aspiration of adding film photography to my business. I was able to ask all the little questions I had about the logistics and differences that came along with shooting in a different medium. She was an absolute wealth of information and was able to provide me with so much useful advice. Instead of spending hours searching the internet or forums, it was really just so nice to have a conversation with a lovely person one-on-one who has the answers you are seeking. I would highly recommend contacting Mallory if you are considering adding film to your workflow!” – Teryn Lee

"Learning from Mallory gave me the confidence, direction, and inspiration I needed to take my business to the next level. Not only this, but if we lived a bit closer, I swear we'd be friends! She's the absolute sweetest person to work with and is incredibly patient, understanding, and honest. Watching her work during a styled shoot in itself was enough to write a book about, but she also gave me free reign to pick her creative and business mind! She so generously invited me into her world in a genuine and vulnerable way, and gave me an insane boost of creative inspiration along with pages full of notes. I truly feel like working with her put my business on a fast-track to avoid so many pitfalls, and it's already saved me time and money. I can't say enough how grateful I am for this mentorship session!" – Kasey Smith
