that touches your soul


I am a bit intuitive when I’m documenting with you. After continuous years of learning about how light & people connect, being observant has played a role in how I connect with you during our session or your wedding day. Letting you be at your most comfortable self captures beauty. Using our surrounding elements and props brings more to your story - the desert, beach, or forest brings the atmosphere. But YOU & the love you bring is all we need to document intentional true moments.

behind every image


I have always loved the creativity mindset that comes with photographing. I love the storytelling you can create just by using light & bringing in items that illuminate a couple’s well-being. You could feel the connection when someone is in a comfortable environment. It is simply what our biological body does at a state of ease. I see myself right there with you - happy & just loving the life you are creating - but all put into a session that is made to make you feel the same emotions and memories to pass down to your children and family. 

An imaginative soul,
with a love for romance.

I am still in awe by Monique’s ability to capture and find so much beauty, even in the mist of chaos! My vow renewal was definitely not your average ceremony, but Monique made it all look like art. My husband and I are forever grateful for these captured moments. We were blown away with her artistry. She’s amazing! No one else could have possibly done this better: I got everything I asked for and more. Please do not hesitate to book. Trust me on this on.

Monique’s talent is undeniably creative, gorgeous, and you can’t help but stare at her amazing work. Aside from her talent she is extremely professional, responsible, and the friendliest person you will ever meet. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera which made us enjoy our sessions even more! She has quite the reputation of excellence and her work proves it! She was meant to have a camera in her hand.

"My husband and I are thrilled to have Monique as a friend now!"



She is a natural at what she does. She had great communication, was very responsible & super nice! She went out of her way to help with our special day. I loved her vibes, very chill but still professional. You can tell she is very genuine about what she does. I would recommend her to everybody!! She made me & my husband feel comfortable in front of the camera & her work is beautiful!! I loved working with her & I look forward to working with her again in the future “MONIQUE IS LITERALLY THE BEST”
