Choosing Monika as my photographer was the BEST decision i made of all my vendors for my wedding! She is extremely kind, patient, and organized. Not to mention her amazing talent for photography. From our first skype session i knew this would be a great relationship! She was always on top of every detail, guiding me every step of the way! She was super helpful to the DIY bride. She helped me create a schedule, a great photo list When the big day finally came she showed up early, scoped out potential locations and was ready to go. Through out the day she remained calm and focused and never once felt pushy or overbearing, but was still able to get all the shots i wanted and more! Im giddy with excitement after seeing photos! I could go on and on, do your self a favor and hire Monika to capture your wedding day!

They say that a person knows if they like someone within 3 minutes of meeting them. I think it took me less than 3 seconds with Monika. She is a kind, compassionate and very artistic spirit that simply said… cares. Months before our wedding Monika took the time to meet with me and my now husband and hear our story. We sat at a local cafe and just chatted endlessly about what brought us together, why etc.. It is that level of care that makes an artist connect with their art, giving them a deeper perspective on the love a couple shares and ultimately documenting their special day moments seamlessly. The day of our wedding I was in a total panic mode, and I completely trusted Monika in making choices for our picture taking, as the rain ruined our original plans. Needless to say, our pictures are spectacular, perfectly capturing all of the special moments that no one else was able to notice. It warms my heart every time I look at them, and it is thanks to Monika that our wedding day was truly special. I honestly could not have imagined that day without her help and warm soul near me.

Monika is simply the best! We really appreciate all of the extra touches and effort she extended. She came to our neighborhood and took the time to have coffee with us to get to know my then-fiance and I and get an idea of our personalities. It’s so special. On our wedding day, she was very professional and commanded everyone to their proper places (as a photographer ought to amidst the chaos) but she was warm all throughout. It rained pretty much the entire day of our wedding and it was very cold up in the Catskills but Monika maintained her calm. Most importantly, the pictures came about absolutely stunning; they were exactly what we wanted. My fiance and I aren’t very good at posing in front of the camera so we requested that she take as many candid shots possible and she definitely delivered. Each and every photo captured the emotions from our special day; we’re very happy with them!
