The greatest adventures all started with saying yes to the unknown.

 

I’m Monica and I believe that you deserve an unforgettable experience. Whether that be for your wedding day, your elopement, engagement, anniversary, honeymoon, or just because you're in love. I’m not only your photographer, I’m your guide to your wildly different photography experience that’s adventurous, intimate, and completely yours. Making fine art photos should be nothing short of a fun, rad time. And I’ll make sure of it. I believe that you deserve unique and beautiful memories to carry with you forever. And I’d love to help bring your dreams to reality.

If you’re looking for a little something different from your photos, you’ve come to the right place. I thrive on authentic moments and always aim to capture meaningful, genuine images. No rigid posing here. You may think you will clam up in front of the camera and act like an “awkward taco” (actual client’s words), but I guarantee to prove you wrong with good times and awesome photos. Of course, I always encourage my clients to bring a sense of play and exploration to the process so we create something unique and personal. At the end of the day, I want your heart to swell every time you go through your photos. Whether you're hoping to have a family-accessible intimate wedding or you want to hike far out in the woods and exchange your vows privately, I'm your girl.
