Photographs of your wedding should be tasteful and refined. Your skin tone and the color of the sky should be true to this world and true to the day. And the emotions captured should be genuine and real.
Do we agree?... Beautiful!
I also believe your photographs should naturally enhance the beauty that was already there.
And I think you'll find that what sets me apart from other photographers is that vision. That very style. And how I put all of that together.
“Monika is able to capture real emotion and the essence of people in a way that comes across as effortless. The photographs from our wedding (and engagement shoot) are sincere, genuine shots that are photojournalistic in style, beautifully composed, and thoughtfully edited. Monika is an artist, gifted in her craft and supremely attuned to how best capture people as they actually are.”
Speaking of putting it all together, here are a few of the options you'll want to consider to get a clear picture of your photography needs:
To be clear, you don't need an engagement session. But keep in mind that on the wedding day, you'll be surrounded by people the whole day. Whereas with your engagement session, it will be just the two of you. In this special time and place. And you'll get photos to document it all. Not to mention that it's a great way to see how it feels to be in front of a camera. Now, who wouldn't want that?!
Your wedding is one-of-a-kind and your photos should be too! So, I'll scout out your venue ahead of time to find picture-perfect spots for photos. And I'll be sure to take into consideration weather conditions and time of the year. In turn, you'll get photos that showcase the best of what your venue has to offer and that are completely unique to you.
You want images of your friends getting ready, that magical sparkler exit, and everything in between. And that's a good thing! Because I live for those unscripted moments. And it's why I offer coverage options for any size wedding and for just about any length of time. (2 - 10 Hours options available) I'm also available for bridal lunches, rehearsal dinners, and any other celebration your wedding deserves!
With a wedding, there are so many unpredictable moments. And because I literally cannot be in two places at once, a second photographer helps capture the groomsmen golfing AND the bridesmaids’ luncheon. The post-wedding family photos AND the details at the reception. Trust me, having another set of experienced hands for small details, and last-minute moments is priceless. And because I put a ton of effort into selecting and training the very best photographers to work with me, you can relax knowing that all of your images will be similar in style and of the high quality.
Photographing a limited number of weddings each year allows me to provide you with the best wedding experience. And it allows me to confidently deliver a gallery of fully edited photos in 6-8 weeks. But don't worry, a mere 72-hours after your wedding day, I'll deliver a preview of 50 beautiful images so you can start reliving the night right away.
Remember my parents' wedding album? Thank goodness digital didn't exist back then, or I may never have had those memories to flip through. And your kids won't either if you leave your images online. Instead, consider an archival-quality RedTree album that can be passed down for generations to come.
Flexible payment options available and no rebooking/rescheduling fees are required.

"Monika was such a joy to work with. I must have looked at 60+ photographers for our wedding, and as soon as I spoke to Monika and saw her portfolio I knew she was the one! Not only is she talented, but she was so comfortable to have with us all day, and her attention to detail is unparalleled.!"
And I don't want this to be our "end" either!
Thank you for appreciating my work and for considering me for your wedding. I hope to have the chance to photograph your day - and many other once-in-a-lifetime moments too.
