I can't say enough good things about Monique & Melissa from MoniLissa Photography! I absolutely adore them. I fell in love with their photography style years ago after they photographed a friend's wedding. While I was engaged, they photographed my coworker's wedding and my brother's wedding, which were amazing. I was thrilled to finally have them photograph mine! The package includes an engagement session, so we did ours in Ocean City, MD. I love that MoniLissa is willing to do engagement photos all over MD. We got amazing photos and ended up using one for our Save The Dates. A few weeks before the wedding, MoniLissa emailed us a rough timeline, and after a few emails back and forth, we worked the day out perfectly. I even sent a list of photos I'd love, and they accommodated every single request! I am thrilled with our posed photos (i.e. large family photos), but we also have so many incredibly "artsy" photos as well. It is going to be SO difficult deciding which photos get framed in our house since there are so many great photos. Monique & Melissa are phenomenal at posing and capturing the perfect moment. At the wedding they were totally unobtrusive and were really respectful of all the guests. We have had tons of compliments on our wedding photos, and we couldn't have been happier with our selection. I would absolutely recommend them for any event that calls for photographers. Thank you for being so fabulous, Monique & Melissa! :)

Melissa and Monique (MoniLissa) were wonderful. Their pictures were amazing. I have received so many compliments on their work. Money very well spent! The quality of their work is outstanding. I enjoyed seeing my pictures on their blog. They had a very fast turnaround. I loved how they captured everything from the wedding, they even captured things I didn't think of. We had a lot of fun and look forward to using them as my Photographers in the future!

My husband and I LOVED working with Monique and Melissa! We found out about them through a friend who used them for their wedding a few years ago when their company first was getting started. Their style of photography and the vision they see for various photos are amazing.
Our experience with them made me realize that they are two very caring and compassionate women who love what they do and really care about their clients. My husband's grandfather had passed away a few days before our engagement session, and without hesitation, MoniLissa offered to reschedule us for a date that we could pick that was more convenient to us within that same week. They were always quick to respond on their email correspondences with us and could answer any questions that we had.
I was an incredibly laid back bride, so I let them do their own thing when it came to the wedding day. I knew there were certain pictures I wanted, but for the most part, they found the best shots that I would never have even thought of. Definitely check out their blog and look at the pictures! Our wedding day was BEAUTIFUL -- the perfect fall day -- and they used every ounce of sunlight and fall foliage that they could to capture the very best.
I highly recommend these ladies to be your photographers for your wedding. My sister-in-law is getting married in May 2014 and will be using them too! Very reasonably priced for what you get in return. :)

We couldn't have asked for better photographers! We felt so comfortable with Melissa from the initial meeting (and although we didn't meet Monique until the wedding, we felt just as comfortable with her as well). Our engagement shoot was in Annapolis, MD. After a quick drink, Melissa and Jenn (who was filling in for Monique while on maternity leave) made us feel relaxed and comfortable. They directed us in the poses and we had a great time! We found some really cool places for the shoot in Annapolis and the pictures turned out great! The day of our wedding, Monique and Melissa took pictures of the guys first (and had a great time) and then of the bride and the bridesmaids. Although it rained, they were able to come up with some creative pictures that were just beautiful. The first glance was really special to us and they certainly captured our emotions. Throughout the ceremony and the reception, Monique and Melissa were in so many places at once and really captured the entire day in the best way possible. Their creative eye really impressed us. The photography was one of our most important components to the wedding and they exceeded our expectations! It is really cool to be featured on their blog for both the engagement session and the wedding. We really can't say enough great things about them and can't thank them enough!

We loved working with Monique and Melissa. My husband and I don't often have pictures taken and we were not looking forward to the engagement photos or this part of the wedding. The ladies were fantastic. That put at us at ease and we ended up having a great time. The pictures turned out great and we are excited to remember our wedding through those photos forever.

Monique and Melissa did an amazing job capturing the special moments of our wedding day. They were flexible and willing to make their time work in our schedule. They were a lot of fun to work with, especially during our engagement session. We instantly felt comfortable with them. We had over 100 photos to choose from for our Save the Date. I would highly recommend Monilissa!

My husband found MoniLissa photography when I asked for photographers who use a photojournalistic style. I didn't want a lot of stuffy posed photographs. I prefer photos that capture a moment as it is happening. I got exactly what I wanted with MoniLissa. The photographers, Monique and Melissa, met with my husband and I beforehand so that we could talk about our vision for our wedding and our photographs. I really felt like they "got" us. They were reasonably priced and fantastic to work with. They were organized, enthusiastic, and very talented. They really went above and beyond the call of duty by volunteering to show up early so that they could photograph me getting my hair and makeup done. Everyone in our wedding party was impressed with their efforts and the pictures came out beautifully! They sent me over 500 edited images on a CD within 2 months of our wedding and I can't wait to print them, make albums, turn them into holiday cards, and give them as gifts. I especially loved this option, as a lot of photographers will maintain the rights to your images and not allow you print, copy, or distribute them without purchasing expensive prints directly from the photographer. My husband and I plan to have them photograph all of our future life events.

Monique and Melissa, were wonderful photographers for our wedding! They made my husband and I feel so comfortable and at ease while taking the photos at the wedding and the engagement session. They captured so many wonderful moments from our wedding that I even didn't see and now I have these wonderful memories in print. You can tell by their enthusiasm that they really love and genuinely enjoy photography. Our wedding day went so smoothly between the getting ready shots, the ceremony, family portraits and reception, we never had to worry about a thing! I would highly recommend MoniLissa Photography to anyone planning a wedding!

I am very pleased with the photographs from my engagement and wedding. Monique and Melissa were very professional and curteous during the engagement shoot, even though they were both pregnant and it was very hot out. They were patient and very creatively different, which I love about them. They improvise and don't stage photos. They are open to the candid shots. I haven't received my wedding photos yet, but I do not doubt that they will be fantastic. On our wedding day Melissa couldn't be there because she just had her little boy, but the replacement photographer, Renee, was a joy to be around and was very professional. I love the creative aspect MoniLissa offers and will definitely be using them in the future! The value I received for their services was amazing!

Monique and Melissa are very thorough and creative with their photos! They get all the important shot plus so many more and their photos are very artistic. I love how they capture candid moments through their photo-journalistic style…it's exactly what we were looking for in a photographer. You can really tell they love what they do. They allowed us to relax and act natural with each other which gave us excellent photos. We continually receive so many compliments on our engagement and wedding photos. We will definitely book them again for other important events worth capturing.

We loved MoniLissa photography! We used them for both our engagement session and wedding photographers. They were willing to travel far distances and were always on time. What we loved about Monique and Melissa was how comfortable they made us feel. Posing in front of a camera can be awkward, but they made us feel relaxed. At the wedding, they were very inconspicuous, never getting in the way. We barely even noticed them!
What we were most impressed with was the picture quality and the huge range of shots that they captured. No one was left out of the pictures. Some were posed, some were candid and fun. The quality and art of their pictures show how talented Monique and Melissa are at their jobs. Thank you so much, ladies! You helped to make the memories of our special day last a lifetime!

Monique and Melissa were absolutely wonderful! All throughout the planning process they responded to our inquiries promptly and completely. They accomodated all of our requests. They are so friendly and fun that working with them felt comfortable right from the very beginning.

Our final photos were stunning, and we could not have been happier with the final product. We were given lots of variety. They captured many moments that help us remember our big day.

I have recommended them to friends and will continue to do so.

Monique and Melissa were AMAZING to work with. They were very easy to contact and very open to my ideas. They were also very flexible, professional, and accommodating. They made my husband and I feel very comfortable and confident about our big day. Not only were they a pleasure to work with,but their work is phenomenal! Just to give you a little background, we had a spring outdoor shabby chic/ rustic themed wedding with about 150 guests. My husband and I were so thrilled with the outcome of our pictures. The photos were so artistic, unique and tastefully done. Our pictures looked liked they could have come out of a bridal magazine. We received SO MANY compliments from our friends and family on our pictures. The bottom line is that hiring Monique and Melissa to capture our special day was one the best decisions we made for our wedding! I will definitely seek them out again when I plan on doing any future professional photos.

We couldn't be happier with the product and price offered by MoniLissa Photography. Both photographers, Monique and Melissa, were very accommodating of our wedding. They were friendly from the very start when my fiance and I met them in a local coffee shop. We knew they were the perfect fit! We had a blast at our engagement session. We felt like models and got to know the photographers. They showed up early for our wedding, and they were both there from start to finish. Our photographs arrived in a timely manner, and they are stunning!!
