Sometimes words just aren’t quite enough. I think that’s why we have photos. They stand in the gap between words and understanding—they show us how we looked. They reveal what we didn’t see. And they remind us how we felt.
I will give you photos that are louder than words. You will feel comfortable in front of my camera and will receive most beautifully captured candid moments and timeless portraits no matter what the setting, weather or lighting conditions are.
I’m Monika. I’m a Poland-born New Yorker (who happens to live in New Jersey). I eat way too much sugar and I already can’t wait to try your wedding cake. I love romance, big ideas, and living in the moment.
When I think about my life and who I am today, I see it as a series of really important discoveries. Each one unveiled a new strength within me, surprising and empowering me to keep dreaming.

We had incredibly high expectations after speaking with her and working through our itinerary, and when it came to our wedding day, she exceeded those expectations beyond our imagination...When we received the final images of our weekend, we were flooded with wonderful emotions and so grateful to be able to relive every second with such gorgeous photography.
Chelsea + Lenny
There are many things that make her special and different from the rest: she has a pure talent of capturing those big and small moments (that hug on the dance floor, the high five to your best friend, the kiss at the alter, the laughter at the table), she is organized and punctual (detailed timelines and questionnaires to make sure she gets everything right!), she has the best personality (a smile that lights up a room), the biggest heart (there are special touches that she does for the couple once you book...will keep this part a surprise), the know-how of navigating all types of personalities while taking family portraits (while keeping things on time and orderly), and an ability to keep a bride, groom, and their bridal party calm pre-wedding jitters.
Robyn + Shane
Both of our families LOVED her, one of my guests asked for her number ("for photography?" I asked "UH NO, TO HANG OUT" she replied - yes Monika is that cool), and she made me feel beautiful and comfortable. The DAY AFTER our wedding, sent us 30 preview photos, and they were all so insanely perfect. I can't deal with how much I appreciate you Monika! Stalk her Instagram and you will fall in love too.
