are the best gift a person can receive!
First off, let me start by saying Monica is an amazingly, genuine and kind person. She really puts love into her work! My family is not easy to photograph! My son who is 3, has Autism, and never looks at the camera. He instantly formed a bond with her and smiled for her for just about every picture. She has the magic touch! She worked so hard to capture my vision, and that she did, and infinitely more!!! I could not ask for more beautifully crafted and artistic photos of my family. She truly captured the love and personality of my family. We will be using her again and again. Thank you so much Monica!
Dreamy wedding in the middle of the ocean
One of the most important tasks while planning for a wedding is choosing the right photographer. With that, came a lot of stress because some photographers are very over priced and sometimes fail to meet your expectations. When I met with Monica, I just knew she was aiming to please and make the best of our occasion. She wanted to know us and wanted to know our style, expectations & example of pictures we liked and were a priority to us. During the wedding, like most weddings, we had minor set backs last minute and she was such a trooper and so patient! During the wedding she worked endlessly to ensure we were able to cover all our priority pictures. My wedding was July 15th and she's already worked so hard to provide me sneak peeks and some of her & my favorite pictured edited so I could share with family & friends & all the images have delivered more than I ever expected! She has undeniable talent & she has a faithful client in me.
From maternity to tiny toes to a beautiful family that I love seeing grow
Monica is amazing! She took our maternity photos as well as our newborn photos! She is a joy to work with and the photos are fantastic! She was super patient with my 3 year old at the maternity session and even more patient with my fussy newborn! I recommend her without hesitation! She is the best!
Elegant Wedding, Dreamy Maternity and one joyous family
I had Monica do my wedding photos last summer && loved her so much that we flew back to California for our maternity pictures!! Our shoot was a lot of fun && turned out better than I could have ever imagined! Will definitely be using her again for family photos in the future.
one fun filled Senior portrait
Words cannot express how happy we were to have found Monica! In one word she is AMAZING to work with. Monica did my daughters senior portraits and everyone of them turned out exquisite. Monica was extremely accommodating with all our locations and wardrobe changes such a pleasure! Truly a remarkable experience!
Some of my favorite people
Monica did an awesome job for our family and baby photo shoot... we are really happy with the quality of the photos! She has a real skill for capturing great expressions and precious moments... and we had 3 small children to coordinate with during the photo session. Monica was patient, fun, and made the entire process enjoyable. She worked really well with the available lighting, and her use of manual focus made for some really eye-catching photos. If you ever need an excellent photographer, look no further than Monica!

some more Kind words
Monica is the most amazing photographer there is! She is very talented and friendly and does the most amazing pictures. She takes her time and doesn't make you feel rushed and captures all the precious moments. Monica has done several pictures for us and we would definitely recommend her! You will NOT be disappointed :)
Monica is an amazing photographer. She takes into account what her client wants. She researched the location where our photo shoot would take place and was prepared with ideas. I was expecting it to take weeks or even a month before I'd see any of the pictures. To my surprise, she had proofs ready within a week of the photo shoot. Definitely recommend for anyone who wants a personable, relaxing photo session!

It is my pleasure to write a review for Monica. She took our engagement party pictures yesterday and she was wonderful to work with. She drove about two hours for our event, and was kind enough to stay an extra hour when we were behind schedule just to make sure we got to take pictures with family. She was very creative and skilled in doing an engagement photoshoot with my fiancé and me before the event, took many photos of highlights during our engagement ceremony, and made it a point to capture all the little nuances of our venue before guests arrived. Thank you so much, Monica! We look forward to working with you again in the future.
Monica is wonderful! She did my senior portraits and did an amazing job. She took the time to get to know me and learned what I was comfortable with. She is very nice and a great listener. She really has an eye for photography. She is professional and her prices are very affordable and reasonable.

I can't describe how unbelievably impressed and blown away my wife and I were after seeing Monica's photography from our wedding day. Quite frankly, Monica went above and beyond--and not by a little but but by an overwhelming margin. She managed to capture the essence of every moment--all the important scenes and parts in the ceremony that may have otherwise been challenging for a conventional photographer who doesn't fully understand the various intricacies and significant parts as it pertains to our Coptic Orthodox ceremony, she most definitely captured them all. She also was able to work naturally with all the available space and light to portray these moments in a romantic, timeless and classic fashion all in one, which is very difficult to find with any professional photographer. After seeing her photos, we really couldn't have asked for better and recognize the true talent and passion she possesses for photography. She really is a true natural and we couldn't be happier with her work. We most definitely will be coming back to Monica for any future photography sessions we may be interested in. On top of that and despite her very busy schedule, she's very responsive and communicates really well regarding her work not to mention is extremely dedicated to finishing her work in a more than timely fashion. We can't thank Monica enough and overall, her work is just outstanding, incredibly professional and absolutely fantastic. We will most definitely be recommending Monica to any friends and family who may be interested. Thank you so much, Monica!
