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?

Choosing a photographer was one of the most important decisions that my husband and I felt we had to make early in our engagement. It is hard to describe my level of excitement when we booked Monika Broz, who actually came referred to me from another wedding photographer very popular in NJ (who had used her for her own wedding, the ultimate compliment!). With each photo we looked at in her portfolio, I knew more and more clearly that she was for us. In addition to her beautiful work which simply captures "moments," she made my ultra picture-shy fiance feel comfortable in his own skin. This sealed the deal for me.

Monika worked with us to build an individual package which included only those items which we needed and therefore kept us in our budget range. She was enormously responsive throughout the entire process and made the trip to Hoboken, NJ where we live to shoot our engagement session where we felt most comfortable. In doing so, she found the most amazing, unique locations and shots, which ultimately resulted in hundreds of pictures in which we truly felt like models!

The day of the wedding could not have gone more smoothly. Monika and her second shooter arrived timely and immediately got to work! They were patient with our crazy family members and communicated clearly with each other, therefore we were able to simply enjoy our day, rather than facilitating them. I haven't seen the photos yet but I know 100% that we will love them. THANK YOU Monika!!

Monika was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the first time we met her (she photographed my sister's wedding 6 years ago) we were blown away by her talent and ability to capture the best moments of the day. When we decided to go with Monika for our wedding, she made our engagement shoot so easy and fun. On our wedding day, we were amazed by how "hidden" she made herself - many people didn't even know she was there and she was able to (again) blow us away by how many great shots she got - color and quality! Family and friends continue to rave about her incredible talents! Monika walked the streets of center city Philadelphia with us to capture some of our favorite shots, including standing in the middle of traffic to get a photo with city hall in the background AND she took us onto the rooftop of the Loews Hotel to capture another "must-have" photo! We couldn't be happier with the services and friendliness Monika offered and would love to be able to work with her again!

Monika is fantastic! We searched for a very long time to find the right photographer, and as soon as we looked on her blog we fell in love with her style. She worked with us to come up with a customized package for our specific wants and needs. We are so very happy with all that she captured on our special day, especially the photos of just me and my husband; they were just what I had hoped they would be. On top of all that, Monika is an excellent communicator, punctual and so friendly! We are so thankful that we invested in such beautiful photography that we can enjoy for the rest of our lives.

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!!

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!! Read less
