9 Years of experience

My passion for photography began on our wedding day in 2003. By 2011, I received the title of Certified Professional Photographer. I completed a three year program, had to pass a portfolio review, and a written exam, which must be re-certified every three years. What does this mean to you as my client?! That I am held at a higher standard in photography. I am a professional, trained by master photographers, who knows the technique and has the experience to consistently capture the highest quality photograph, regardless of the situation. I enjoy capturing that beautiful glimpse of life we want to remember forever. When choosing me as your photographer, you will discover that my love for people and life transcends through the camera and into each image. As a Certified Professional Photographer, you will only get the best when choosing me to capture your memories.

Awards, honors and recognition

Numerous covers published in local magazines and books. I hold a Certification in Photography from the National Photographer’s Association.

A fun fact about me

I was born and raised in Poland, and my husband is from Macau, China. Our kids are first generation American born. Although it was seven years apart, we came to this country on the same day in October, when we were 9 years old.

    Monika is wonderful! She took some beautiful pictures of our family last weekend. She wanted to capture the light and scheduled us for the perfect time of day. The setting was gorgeous and we felt completely at ease. I would highly recommend Monika for family or event pictures. She truly enjoys her work and is affordable as well. I highly recommend Monika!

    Monika was beyond amazing!!!! We were blown away with how our pictures turned out. She was creative and allowed us to use her cute props. And she knows exactly what lighting to use and when. We are so thrilled to have gotten to know her. Our wedding day couldn't have been more perfect!

    Monika did an amazing job. I explained to her what I was trying to accomplish & she went over the top in capturing what I was looking for. She keeps taking pictures until she gets the look she wants. I would highly recommend her!
