“Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life; Love shouldn’t be one of them.”
— Dreams for an Insomniac

hey ya, i'm monique!


I am a wedding, couples and lifestyle photographer based out of Southern California, available for travel worldwide. I’m all about capturing the genuine emotions, the candid moments, the in-betweens and ultimately here to tell your love story, your way.

I didn't go to college to study art, hell I didn't even take photography classes in high school. Know what I did? I picked up a disposable camera and shot whatever the heck I wanted to, whatever made me feel happy. Through the years, I experimented with different types of photography and one day I found myself photographing love. It became by far the most fulfilling, and the rest as they say, is history…

The joy it brings me to tell my couples’ stories is unparalleled and hardly feels like work at all. I live for raw, real love and my goal is to create images that you can look back on years later and say “these photos still feel like us.”

Show me your world and let's create something magical TOGETHER.
