Testimonials

Monika did an AMAZING job on my wedding in June. The pictures came out so incredibly beautiful and natural. She worked so hard and went above and beyond. I would highly recommend Monika for any occasion. My family has hired her for two weddings so far and she has done such beautiful work on both. Thank you Monika!

Monika you are the best photographer we've had. My husband and I are not photogenic at all and you gave us the direction we needed and helped us pose just the right way to capture the most amazing photos. You have an eye for beauty and knew just how the lighting would affect the shots. I don't know how you make ordinary people and things look so beautiful, but you do. You are so talented and know your subjects well. A true professional. Thanks for being so great to work with! We are very happy.

Trusting Monika to do our wedding photography was the best decision we made besides marrying each other!!!  Monika captured all of the beautiful moments and emotions of our wedding day.  We couldn’t be happier with our gorgeous photos and we can’t stop looking at them.  In addition to her exceptional work, Monika is calm, organized, and extremely professional.  We have the utmost respect for her and recommend her without hesitation.  Monika is simply the best!

Jackie (Wedding Photography, Hadley MA

For our big day, we wanted to ensure that not only photos were captured, but the overall feel of the day was also captured. The happiness, the love, the craziness, the tears- all of it. Monika's photographs captured the true and raw emotion of the day.

We didn't have to worry about a thing. Monika was incredibly professional, personable, and invested in our happiness. She dealt with family members like a champ, and never once looked overwhelmed or flustered. Monika is so wonderful at what she does because she truly is an artist and she is doing what she loves. Her love and passion shines through her photographs.

Monika is truly a professional. The pictures came out perfect and everything we were hoping for. She was easy-going and wanted us to have what we wanted first, before giving her own suggestions when we didn't know what else we wanted. Highly recommended!!

Bryan (Engagement Photography, Dallas TX)

Thank you so much! Working with a large family cannot be easy and you made it very relaxing and enjoyable for us! Our pictures are great and we will forever treasure them!

Melissa (Family Photography, Fort Worth TX)

Highly recommend! Every picture came out fantastic. Sydney dreaded having her pictures done and ended up having a great time. We will use Monika from now on!

Lisa (Senior Portrait Photography, Belchertown MA)

Monika is very good at what she does! She made me feel very good about myself during the shoot and continued to keep a smile on my face the entire time, it was very fun to be with her! She also respects what her client wants in the picture and helps create fun poses and backgrounds. Another amazing thing was her willingness to take them so last minute, arranging them and making it happen quick. She was a big help to me and I couldn't thank her enough. I love all of the awesome pics!

Talysha (Senior Portrait Photography, Belchertown MA)

Monika was amazing! We met her for a family photo shoot, and this being my first, I didn't really know what to expect. She gave advice before the shoot on outfits/things to bring and was so prepared when we met. She seamlessly moved us from one location to the next while capturing wonderful moments in between. She had many great ideas and even worked around a cranky one year old with warmth and humor. Our finished photos were available to us within 24 hours and are so beautiful! Monika made this experience such a joy that she will be our photographer for years to come!

Heather (Engagement Photography, Belchertown MA)

She was so professional and polite. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our photos are so incredible and I am so happy with them. I can't speak highly enough about her and her work. Thank you, Monika!

Melanie (Family Portrait Photography, Belchertown MA)

Thank you so, so much for your amazing work at our wedding! I was thrilled with your work every step of the way. I was already impressed with your professionalism, organization and genuine interest in our wedding from the first time we met. I'm grateful that you arrived before our requested time and didn't leave until well after your obligation was up. I appreciate that you made sure you got everything that was important to us. You also had great suggestions for poses that we'd never think of!

And let's not forget the quality of the photos themselves! They're beautifully shot and beautifully edited. Our guests are sharing them all over Facebook and making them their profile pictures - that's how you know they like them ;)

Last but not least, your rates were great too! I really feel like we won the photographer lottery when we met you :)
