What you really want to know is, "Why should we choose you? What makes you stand apart from the average photographer?" The answer is simple: I am a successful photographer because I have a passion for photography and a good creative eye, while also having the natural ability to make people feel comfortable. And my definition of success is having happy clients.

Photography-wise, I call my style 'modern romantic'. For the must-have portraits, I pose very contemporary and use our surroundings to give the portraits a classy yet unposed feel. For everything else I shoot documentary-style, recording the natural happenings with a 'fly-on-the-wall' eye. I am always looking for those very personal moments between people while keeping at a good distance so a couple doesn't even know I'm photographing them. You want your storybook to be about who you are as a couple, not who a photographer poses you to be.

Personality-wise, I am a friendly and flexible person, which is an advantage to my clients because I easily adapt to their individual personalities. I am able to capture who they really are, while maintaining a level of calm for them on such an emotionally-charged day. At the same time I am observant and calculated, always anticipating the next great shot. I am in my upper 20's which gives me the luxury of having a fresh modern edge while also having over nine years experience working for myself and other prominent photographers. Being female, and a detail-oriented one at that, I actually notice all of those details you put so much effort into picking out -- the back of the dress, the jewelry, the cake-cutting utensils. And I am a true romantic, so I never get tired of weddings. No two are alike, and no two are photographed the same.

I believe people who excel in their profession do so because they have followed a path that combines their natural talents and strengths. That is why I am a photographer. :-) Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Hand-coloring, sepia toning, gallery wrap canvas mounting, personalized jewelry and handbags are a few specialties.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
All forms of lighting.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Although I love film, I am now all digital and love it!
How many photographers do you work with?
I am the professional you are hiring, and I have 3 secondary photographers which work along with me at different weddings.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Absolutely, once again you are hiring me and I work very personally with my clients.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I do not take on more than one wedding a day, but sometimes have two in a weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have some great connections with other working professionals I can call upon to make sure someone is there in my place, and would definitely still have my secondary photographer there.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I work with Canon professional cameras, mostly Canon 'L' series lenses, and simple light reflectors and flash equipment atop tripods. I work wirelessly to eliminate cords and extra lighting equipment that is time consuming and gets in the way of us shooting more freely and contemporary.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, I have extra camera bodies, lenses, flashes, and batteries.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Clients love that I am a full day photographer. That way you don't have to worry about how long I may be there or be watching the clock for 'extra hour' charges.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Myself and my secondary photographer really only take a break when the guests are eating dinner.
Do you charge for travel?
Any travel within a little over an hour from my home is included. Farther accomodations would require a hotel stay for the night, please contact me for a personalized quote.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Approximately two weeks after the wedding date.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
I present the images in a cocktail slideshow presentation in my home, and give the proofs on a CD at that time. They are also released at that time for online viewing by family and friends. You also may purchase a full set of high quality proofs for $500.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The disk with medium-res files for printing 4x6 and smaller is yours to keep.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I do retain the copyrights for the pictures, but am happy to sell the high-res files and printing for personal use rights for an additional $500.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, I reserve the right to use the photographs in promoting my business and displaying my work as art.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, your images will be hosted online for viewing and ordering by friends and family for 6 months after the date of receiving your images on disk.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer a variety of matted albums and digital coffeetable designs from quality, reputable companies.
When will the client get the final album?
The finished album is ready 6-8 weeks from the date you approve the design.

Monica does amazing work. She was the one vendor that we knew before we were even married that we wanted to use. She has done several other friends weddings. She just some how captures amazing images. I will use her in the future for family and children photos. Her pricing is very reasonable, especially for what you get!

Monica was always professional and gave me the personalized attention I needed. As a very hands on bride, she accomidated all my requests. Monica's style of photoraphy is unique and breath taking. She has so many beautiful ideas and an eye for capturing the right moment. There were so many amazing photos, we could bearly decide which ones to choose for our album. We are still getting compliments about her work almost a year after the wedding. I would highly recommend Images of style by Monica. Nicole and Andy

Monica is wonderful! She has a vision that makes her pictures just amazing. I love every one of my 1350 pictures she took. It was a pleasure working with her, she was very nice and unobtrusive. We hardly noticed them at the reception, but she was there clicking away for most of the night. We can't thank her enough for capturing our day.

From the minute we met Monica, we knew that she was the photographer that we wanted for our wedding day. Her relaxed personality matched with a true expert's body of work/knowledge was perfect for us.

On the day-of, Monica captured some of our most cherished memories. She and her husband, Chris, were able to guide us through the "formalized" parts of the day (photos with the families, etc.) but then gave us the distance we needed throughout the rest of our day. That allowed for truly natural, journalistic pictures that were not forced. In fact, many of those shots have become some of our very favorites.

Monica provides excellent value for the investment that you make. If you are looking for a photographer who can provide a personal touch while still providing world-class product, we couldn't think of anyone better to recommend.

We can't wait for the opportunity to use Monica again for when our children are born and throughout the years. She's the best!

Words cannot express how thrilled we are to have had Monica as our photographer! One of my favorite hobbies is photography, and when I saw samples of Monica's work, I knew immediately that she was the one! We knew she was there, along with her husband Chris, taking pictures, but she was never intrusive. In fact, there were times she was very helpful in providing an extra pair of hands when needed. She and Chris gave us their all and it was reflected in the quality of their pictures. Wedding pictures are expensive - yes; however, you can't put a price on an excellent eye for detail. Monica has "the eye". Watching the slideshow of our pictures (bonus-on a large, flat screen) was like reliving the day again along with many precious moments that we missed and were glad were caught on film.
