About this Vendor

Quirky and being in Love!!

I am very inspired by anything vintage and antique. I love photographing the craziness in life such as laying in a wildflower field and rolling around in the dirt play fighting! I am not shy and look forward to photographing your goofy and so in love relationship. xoxo- Monika

Monika and Jason were the most wonderful photography team for our wedding. They were very professional and courteous. We took engagement photos at Lake Jacomo (their idea) on a steaming hot day in July. They brought props, rented canoes, and got some very romantic and fun lake... Read More shots. They even took photos of us with our 12-year-old chihuahua, as well as close ups of her. These meant the world to me, as she passed away a few weeks later. The day of our wedding, they were on time and well prepared. They listened to our requests and added in ideas of their own. We even made a makeshift photobooth with funny props so our guests could later order their own prints! We then received a personalized DVD set of all of our couple photos, group shots, and reception moments. I would recommend MonPhotography to any bride looking for a unique and fresh perspective to capture the best day of her life!

Wonderful photos!

MonPhotography was our first choice for wedging photographers, as she has captured amazing moments of our wiley crew for photos the past several years. Few people can wrangle a free-spirited family of 5 without anyone feeling "wrangled" or worse, "poised!" Monika moves... Read More swiftly without rushing, she capitalizes on the natural beauty available and has what we feel is the perfect balance between "fly on the wall" and "guiding" you through the shoot! She is innovative, while timeless. Her images have such feeling behind them - which we attribute to her great demeanor and ease. You get to just enjoy the time with your groom/bride/family and Monika somehow manages to be right there (without ever seeing her "right there") for every single, beautiful moment shared. When we received all of our images after our wedding, I was shocked that she captured so many moments of seeming minutia, unbeknownst to me. Those are the moments that are so precious- and thankfully, we have them forever captured! On top of all else, she's fun and easy going. Who couldn't use that on their wedding day? 10 thumbs from our family way up for MonPhotography!

Monika and Jason are outstanding people. I fell in love with their work years before I even got engaged and I knew that they were who I wanted to photograph my wedding. When my husband and I did our engagement pictures I was very nervous about how “un-photogenic” I thought we... Read More were going to be, but Monika made us feel very comfortable. She definitely thinks out of the box, if there was somewhere with the perfect lighting and the perfect backdrop we were stopping in the middle of the street, I loved it! Our engagement pictures turned out great. We got married on 8/22/15 and Monika and Jason showed up on time and jumped right in with taking pictures. I am very thrilled with the shots that we got on our wedding day even when we were in a time restraint. I got a lot of great feedback from my guests at the reception about how many pictures they were taking and how long they were there for. We can’t wait to see all the pictures!

Amazing!!! Highly recommend!!
