Meet your photographer
Monika with "K", born and raised in Europe, creative mind and soul, visual storyteller, nature enthusiast, tea drinker, biker, ice cream addict, U2 fan, talker and hugger, human mom and doodle mom:). I believe in deep conversation, hand written notes, and most of all - love stories big or small (but frankly, is there any small love story?:). I don't collect stuff, I collect memories. I don't count likes or followers, instead I spend my precious time with the loved ones. After all, we have only this life to live, so let's make the most out of it! I hold a masters degree in teaching, but instead I've decided to follow my dream, so I can create a little magic with my camera! And I can't wait to meet you, get to know you and create some magic for you! Email me and we can chat!
How would I describe my photography style and approach...
CREATIVITY and LIGHTING
I embrace life with all it's seasons, colors, tones, highlights and shadow. And you bet, my work reflects that!!! So if you like "dark, moody" or "light, airy" I am NOT your girl.
For my signature style, I use my photography skills and imagination throughout the day and night, and I am able to come up with something unique for each of my couples. I will give you bold, yet timeless images with gorgeous lighting and creative compositions. My style is clean, vibrant, with a touch of dreamy, romantic feel.
I just love "sun kissed" images! But what if it's a little gray out there and you want to have that sunny glow? I can work some magic with my lighting techniques! OR what if you want some cool night shots? Is both your ceremony and reception inside? It's raining and the portraits can't be done outside anymore? NO WORRIES! I know my lighting game! Natural light or added, I know how to work with it!
Then, in post production, my images are all hand edited by me. I can assure you, there are no weird filters used!
When all the elements come together, it's truly magical! It makes you look at that final image and just say "WOW!"
PROFESSIONALISM and AUTHENTICITY
I've photographed hundreds of weddings, sessions, events and gigs, so I know a thing or two! This isn't my hobby, this is my passion and my job! I run a legit business, so no worries, I've got you! I deeply care about my clients and my goal is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera so I can capture the most genuine emotions. Also, I've created a customized timeline to stay on track all day and night. So let's create some memories!
ENERGY and FUN
I put 200 % in everything I do! No matter what happens, I always stay calm and bring a positive attitude. I promise, you're gonna get all the help and support you need! And on top of it, you will have a great time with me! Check over 70!!! reviews from my past clients (for example on theknot.com), they will tell you all about it!
I often work with my lovely husband Ryan who is not just an amazing photographer and my best sidekick, but also the most fun person to be around! Together we make the perfect team!!!
Can't wait to meet you!
