From deep within the dark forests of Eastern Europe, legends of Monika Broz began to seep through the Iron Curtain. Kidnapped by the traveling circus as a child, she learned to ride horses bareback, drive Formula One racecars, and traverse the trapeze with aplomb.

Eluding her captors in a midnight escape, Monika returned to her native Poland. But her wanderlust and sense of adventure had been ignited. Reports soon surfaced of a spirited girl with fiery red hair who smuggled chocolates and other Western contraband over the Communist border in a series of daring crossings. And as the Berlin Wall crumbled, Monika stood at the forefront of the pioneering crowds…

Now a young woman, Monika chose to throw her indomitable spirit into the pursuit of art and beauty. Stowing away on a steamer, she landed in the United States and soon found her way to the prestigious School of Visual Arts in New York City. After immersing herself in the study of classical art for several years, she turned exclusively to her greatest passion: Wedding Photography.

The results were predictable—Monika’s combination of fearlessness, determination, ruthless self-discipline and remarkable aesthetic has produced one of the most unique and talented photographers in the history of the art form. Once Monika has undertaken a photographic mission, she cannot be stopped. No ledge is too high, no wall too thick, no crowd too boisterous to keep her from getting her shot. From the Mexican coast to Athens, Morocco, Barcelona, Prague and Los Angeles, she has traveled the world in pursuit of perfect images…do you have an assignment to challenge her?

She was exactly what we were looking for in our wedding photographer and we couldn't be happier! Our day was documented perfectly.

We can't say enough good things about Monika. First, she's really welcoming and relaxed--it was such a no-pressure, no-issues event whenever we spoke with her or during the shoots. She's really good at communicating, as we had a lot of questions leading up to both our engagement and wedding shoots. We absolutely booked her for the wedding photos since we loved the results of the engagement shoot. Monika has the most creative ideas for photos and really has fun with her clients. We could see she really enjoys what she does and it comes out in her demeanor and work. She knows exactly what she's doing and we felt completely comfortable letting her direct the poses and placements. But Monika is also very accommodating and took a lot of requested photos too. Monika is amazing to work with and we loved that she took our engagement and wedding photos.

Monika is not only incredibly talented but also professional, personable and fun! She’s like the dream wedding vendor…honestly. She took engagement pictures for my fiancé and I and we could not be happier with the end result. She was very responsive in e-mails (which I love – I hate when I am the one following up with vendors) and was very accommodating and reassuring. Definitely put your trust in her and do what she tells you to do! We felt a little silly with all the PDA in a public space but the pictures look incredibly natural and she really captured our personalities and the love between us. I recommend her without hesitation.

monika took my friends pictures for her wedding and they were stunning so when it came time to look for a photographer she was at the top of the list. we interviewed many photographers but her albums were the most amazing quality and she just takes such beautiful photos.

she is flexible and was willing to work to get the photos and look for interesting places to take pictures.
the end result was fantastic and the whole process to get the album took about a year but she was in contact and was willing to work with us with what pictures we wanted.
we would recommend her absolutely..

We picked Monika as our wedding photographer because we wanted artfully chosen, non-traditional pictures. She had a lovely portfolio to view which showed her versatility as a photography artist. If you want traditional, she can do that. If you want, unique she can do that. If you want sensual, she can do that. And we were not disappointed! She followed our requests and produced a collection of beautiful photos of our wedding. My best friend said, "Wow! These are the best wedding photos I've ever seen." Monika was so flexible and easy to work with. I highly recommend her for your wedding!

Monika is a gem! Not only is she extremely talented with a great eye, but she is just a pleasure to work with.
My husband and I got married at City Hall and hired Monika for about 4 hours for the day. She arrived on time and went right to work. We took photos in our apartment and in our neighborhood and then headed to City Hall. Afterwards, she stayed to take some candids as our small group settled in for dinner at a local restaurant.
The photos are just amazing. What I love about Monika's work is that there is nothing 'typical' about them. They don't look staged. The lighting, the textures, the color, the emotion -- she truly captures the uniqueness of each couple and event.
Also, as a side note, I was nervous about having a photographer with us all day. Part of the reason for a small group at City Hall was because I never liked the idea of all the attention at a big wedding. I wanted intimate and special. I wondered if it would be weird having a third person around. I even mentioned this to Monika and she said it's normal. After a few minutes, you won't even notice I am there. And it's true. After a few minutes, my husband and I felt really comfortable with her and trusted what she was doing.
When Monika left for the evening, it felt like she was an old friend who just also happens to be an amazing photographer. I am so glad she was there to capture and share our special day.

Monika came from NY to do my engagement shoot. Because my husband and I were married in Cabo, we had 2 different photographers. It's only because we already had a photographer in Cabo that we didn't have Monika come with is - because she was FANTASTIC and made us feel so at ease and comfortable during our shoot - I would have flown her in for sure! Anyway - she met us at our house,but there was lots of communication prior. So when she arrived, she was so sweet and fun (and did I mention, came highly recommended by a friend of mine who hired her for engagement photos and for her wedding!). We spent 3 1/2 hours together in our hometown, with 2 different themes for the shoot - one in the town - more urban, and the other in one of my hometown's parks. We were lucky enough that the beautiful fall colors were still hanging on, and Monika caught them all perfectly! She is extraordinary! I would recommend her to EVERYONE! She gave us every photo and everyone we've shown them to have just raved at her eye. She's a natural. She had never been to our town so we walked and she talked and scanned every inch of every street and she'd stop us and tell us "let's go there" when she found something visually appealing. She is so talented! And her personality is so engaging too. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. Her blog says it all though - 100% pure talent!!

We hired Monika for our engagement shoot and wedding photography. Upon meeting Monika herself, I found her sweet, yet striking and quietly commanding behind her lens. My husband and I, who had not been photographed together professionally before, felt immediately relaxed under Monika's magnetic enthusiasm. She indulged our silly, whimsical ideas and encouraged some terrific poses, but also captured delicate, behind-the-scenes moments of my husband and I that are truly touching because they capture what is real about us as a couple. On our big day, Monika and her assistant took truly charming photos of my husband and his groomsmen, my parents and I, and captured the essence of my lifelong friendship with each of my bridesmaids. I didn't hear a single click or notice her at all, and yet, Monika managed to capture the best smiles and tears and sweetest kisses as we said our "I Do's". Many of my favorite photos from the rest of the day and celebration are ones I was unaware were even being taken. You have to see them to believe how beautiful they are. While many people's wedding photos remain bound in a book on their coffee table, these photographs from both our engagement shoot and wedding are so truly magnificent, we have many of them printed to canvas and displayed prominently throughout our home. On our wedding thank-you card, we could not choose a photo to use, so we chose EIGHT of our favorites. People who received this card, have come to our home, or friends of friends, who have seen our album on facebook always ask "Who took your photos?!?!" Our photographs are so completely out-of-the-ordinary, the desire to know who the ARTIST is, is understandable. Monika's photographs that are spectacular and whimsical, so artistically cultured, imaginative and almost poetic, that they truly set her apart as an artist among mere photographers. We are grateful to her for her generosity in sharing her incredible talent with us in capturing this wonderful time in our lives.

How my fiancé and I got so lucky to be referred to Monika I don't know. I live in Orange County, CA and was looking for photographers based on word of mouth for our engagement session in NY. A friend recommended Monika to us and I am forever grateful. Monika's talent and work speak for itself! My fiancé and I were so in love with her work that after a 3-way Skype session we knew she was our vendor of choice and the search was over. We really wanted our engagement session to capture the essence of a couple in love in NY. Monika responded to every email I sent her within minutes if not an hour. I was very nervous the week we were supposed to have our photo session as the weather was constantly changing. Monika monitored the weather reports and was flexible with rearranging her schedule to match with ours and mother natures. She incorporated the key elements we wanted and made us feel so at ease that my fiancé said he wanted to have another photo session :). When we received the images we were blown away. We already had high expectations because of her work we had seen but she surpassed them and then some. I would highly recommend if you are between two vendors and Monika is one of them you choose her. You will not be disappointed!

How my fiancé and I got so lucky to be referred to Monika I don't know. I live in Orange County, CA and was looking for photographers based on word of mouth for our engagement session in NY. A friend recommended Monika to us and I am forever grateful. Monika's talent and work speak for itself! My fiancé and I were so in love with her work that after a 3-way Skype session we knew she was our vendor of choice and the search was over.

Monika was our FAVORITE to work with and she stood out above all of our other wedding vendors. As a photographer, Monika has incredible versatility and just stunning work. From sun-drenched picnics to avant garde, Monika can shoot it all. As a wedding photographer specifically, you can tell Monika has a passion for shooting weddings. There are so many photographers out there who do weddings but really want to be photojournalists. We actually met many in the process of determining our photographer - - and I was struck by the honesty of Monika's dedication and enthusiasm for her craft as a wedding photographer. As a person, we completely trusted Monika. She's cool, calm, and collected, the right balance of fading into the background and being unobtrustive and taking leading family shots. She gave us 110% of her focus at our engagement session and then another 200% at the wedding. She even brought 2 additional photographers with her at our wedding - - again, the above and beyond. I would HIGHLY recommend Monika to any bride. She is an amazing person, photographer, and was such an incredible joy to work with for such a momentous occasion.

Monika did an excellent job with our wedding photography. She takes absolutely amazing photos that look like magazine shots. Her photos are very artsy and her editing is great. She is so easy to work with, so nice and makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed. All of her paperwork, samples, etc... is noticeable modern and chic. Monika's pictures are noticeably different and unique. Although her prices are a bit high, I think she could charge much more for the wonderful work she does. Our photos were worth every penny.
Before the wedding, we completed her worksheet asking her what formal shots we would like. In all the wedding craziness you don't notice with whom you've taken pictures. The only thing we wish would have been done differently is more formal family shots and shots of friends. From the 900 pictures were received, about 800 were of just us. But if I had to do it over again, I wouldn't hire anyone but Monika.

There are no words to fully describe the artistic nature and the absolute breathtaking photos by Monika Broz. From the moment my husband and I met with her to discuss our vision for our wedding photos, Monika made us feel very comfortable and we truly felt that she would capture the special moments at our wedding. Most brides can attest to the fact that your wedding day is a blur and you need professionals to usher you to your post! Monika was wonderful in that she simply and calmly directed us on poses that would bring out our personalities and love for each other, while snapping candid, special moments of our day. Despite the extreme heat on our wedding day that caused unexpected changes to our photo locations, Monika was very adaptable and managed to find beautiful opportunities for photos at the last minute. Our pictures came out amazing --- very artistic and beautiful. She truly captured the essence of our wedding! Monika took the time to learn what was important to us and she caught these moments throughout the day --- including pictures of wedding accessories, the gourmet food and unique wedding venue, and most importantly the special people in our life. Monika is a true professional who will make any bride feel beautiful and at ease. I would highly recommend Monika's services for your wedding.

Her ability to shoot candid moments as well as portraits sets her above other wedding photographers and resulted in a gorgeous wedding album! I would suggest her to any bride-to-be (and have :) )!

Monika and her work are absolutely AMAZING. Not only does she have incredible talent for producing some of the most artistic, creative, beautiful, unique, playful, romantic pictures, she is also an absolute pleasure to work with. She is always professional, yet extremely kind and open to listening to suggestions and feedback. Her responses to questions/emails are always thoughtful and prompt and it is clear that she goes above and beyond to make her clients happy. For example, I was particularly impressed with how much time and care she devoted to designing our wedding album, taking extra time to discuss/incorporate all of my very nit-picky suggestions (and make sure they made sense with the overall style) even though she didn't have to. There are so many vendors that will simply dictate to a couple how things SHOULD be and not offer any alternatives, while Monika really listens to what couples want, while making excellent recommendations. Monika is a vendor that truly cares about everything she does.

And of course, being a true artist, her style of work is naturally so beautiful and high quality, that she really does not need much direction at all. In fact, we are so grateful to her for directing us in her very easygoing manner. She knew when to gently take charge for a photo and when to hang back and let things happen, so that we ended up with a beautiful mix of both creatively posed and naturally candid shots. We totally trusted her just to do her thing and the resulting photos were gorgeous. She was unobtrusive, encouraging, and just plain fun! My husband and I are not people that typically enjoy being in photos, but she made us look and feel like models having the best time.

As an added bonus, Monika is so experienced with weddings that in our conversations with her, we actually learned about elements /logistics we should be considering that even our venue manager / other vendors didn't think about or at least hadn't brought up with us yet. She always asked all the right questions and knew exactly how to handle the flow of the event (which included close to 300 people, two venues, and two other venues in case of rain, and several different indoor and outdoor photo locations.)

I can say with confidence that hiring Monika was the best wedding decision we made! Not only do we have a beautiful, artistic book of memories, but we are also so grateful to her that her presence created such a sense of calm + amazing creative energy on our wedding day.

I cannot say enough good things about Monika and her work. She was lovely and professional, and I had the utmost confidence in her from our first meeting. My wedding was two days, and she was accommodating and flexible. Her team was equally professional. I cherish my wedding (and engagement) photos and recommend her to every bride to be that I encounter. As a photographer myself, the photographs are of the utmost importance to me, and Monika certainly delivered. I am grateful to have had such a wonderful experience and have the opportunity to write a glowing review.

Monika was amazing to work with, and we have captured memories from our wedding that will last a lifetime. She documented our day perfectly and made it feel as special and unique as it was. It was a breath of fresh air to not have the 'awkward, posed, fake' feeling images but rather raw emotions in a very artistic way.

We knew after we got back our engagement shots that we had picked the right photographer, she is so easy to work with, her work speaks for itself and you don't even realize she is there taking pictures at the wedding. She makes you feel at ease and the images really show that. I would work with Monika again in a heartbeat! Beautiful work and a joy to work with!

Monika is top notch!! I was attracted to her style of photography instantly and knew I had to have her as our photographer. I thought taking our engagement pictures would feel awkward but she makes you feel very comfortable and we had so much fun. Monika and her team are very professional and did not overcrowd us at our wedding...like some photographer can do. We just received our album and it is amazing!!! I have never seen a more beautiful album before. Everyone is blown away by our pictures. Monika is worth the price..even if you have to cut your budget somewhere else. I have no regrets. I will have these pictures forever...that is all that is left in the end. Choose Monika!

Our wedding was at Grounds For Sculpture. When we were looking for a photographer, we wanted someone who had photographed at GFS before and was familiar with the grounds. We fell in love with Monika's work right away. It was one of our most expensive choices for the wedding, but it was also one of our easiest decisions to make. Monika is very responsive via email. Pictures before our ceremony went smoothly despite the drizzly weather. She was also quick to add some of our photos to her blog and to send us the proofs. More than that, though, we love our photos. They are creative without being silly, and they are the one lasting thing we will always have from our wedding. I couldn't be happier.

Monika is the most creative, talented and amazing photographer we could have ever hoped for! We met with quite a few photographers before making our choice, but after meeting Monika, it was set- she is truly in a league of her own. Wedding photographers are expensive, but what you pay Monika is worth it, if you are looking for unique, exceptional, artistic photos that you will be able to cherish for a lifetime! She and her second shooters were phenomenal to work with.

Monika is not only professional and friendly, but she is absolutely amazing with her craft! Her photographs are creative, but still manage to capture the feelings of the guests at the event. Once my husband and I received our proofs, it was extremely difficult to select pictures for our album because all of them were so amazing. Monika made us, the bride and groom, as well as all of our guests feel comfortable in front of the camera and we never felt like anyone was in the way or interfering with the events of the evening.
