I just love, Love! Don't you love, Love?


Hi, My name is Monica! I'm so happy you want to get to know me more. Here's a little about me: I have been a wedding photographer since graduating art school in 2006. I finally married my soul mate in 2022 under the delicate almond blossoms with my favorite people cheering us on. We have two beautiful little girls we just adore and recently welcomed a little Aussie to the family to keep us on our toes. As a family we love traveling, eating yummy food, and laughing... A LOT!

I got into wedding photographer because it just made sense. I was studying fashion photography in art school and I am a hopeless romantic. The first wedding I photographed just blew my mind! The gowns were gorgeous, the attention to detail was impeccable, the speeches were endearing, and the day just exuded elegance and luxury. I fell in love with weddings at that moment. 

Thankfully living in Northern California I have had the experience of photographing love in some of the most beautiful locations this country has to offer. I would love to meet you and tell your love story if you'll have me.

I look forward to meeting you!
