Hey hey!

What’s up guys? I’m Monica, your new best friend, sherpa, planner, and photographer. It's no secret that I love traveling, the great outdoors, and exploring interesting places. I was born and raised in South Florida no more than five minutes from the beach but I can promise you I was meant to be in these mountains. Inspired by some epic landscapes and beautiful scenery of the Southeast, my love for documenting the places I've been has evolved to incorporating that passion into helping others in documenting the important moments of their lives. There is something truly special about capturing raw emotion through a camera lens. And it's capturing that raw emotion and preserving those memories for others that truly fulfills me.

I prefer to go on epic adventures, capturing them as they unfold before me. Or behind. Or above. And I'm not afraid to go out of my way to get an especially epic shot whenever an opportunity presents itself.

I look forward to working with adventurous couples who are willing to do almost anything to get "the shot". I promise that we will have a blast together and we will create magic. I believe there is no such thing as bad weather if you have the right attitude. I not only want to be your photographer, but I also want to be your friend. Let's tell your story the way it's meant to be told. 

Please reach out using the contact form if you have any questions or would like to bring me along on your adventure!


“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

— Aaron Siskind
