As most brides do, I had so many things going on while planning my wedding and it became a little overwhelming at times, but I never had to worry about my photographer. Monique worked around my schedule and was very helpful throughout the planning and on my wedding day. Anytime I had a question, even of the smallest significance, she replied in a timely manner and made sure everything was taken care of for me. I knew that I would have great photos because of her and I will always cherish the memories she helped provide for me for the rest of my life.

Monique was absolutely great to work with. She is fun and professional at the same time, which made us feel very comfortable at our sessions. The images she creates are beautiful and timeless. She is very talented and reasonably priced. She knew exactly what she was doing during the wedding which made it run smoothly. She was at the right place at all the right moments so I got amazing pictures of all aspects of my wedding. I am not a model and have no experience in front of a camera but the images she captured made me look like one. I can't say enough good things about her. I am now a customer for life!

Monique is an amazing and extremely creative photographer. She takes her time on shoots and makes sure to get the best shots. She has already done my bridal and engagement sessions and I can hardly wait for the wedding to see what she captures!

From the first consultation, we knew that we had found the best photographer for our wedding day. She was very understanding of what we wanted and no matter how long it took, she was sure to explain anything that we had questions about, so that we knew exactly what products and services we were getting. The packages that she offers were a great starting place to decide what we wanted but we totally got to make our own custom package to make sure that we really got everything we wanted. There was a lot of flexibility in scheduling the different sessions for the engagement and bridal photos. We had to reschedule two times, one due to weather and the other to a personal conflict on our end. However, she was very professional with dealing with the situation and continued to give us options until we got the shoots done. Much of the communication was done through the convenience of emailing, since both my husband and I work all day, and we always received a response to our communication about her services the same day.

Deciding to go with Perspectives photography was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding day. The pictures were captured in such a unique and thoughtful manner, that we will always be able to remember the people and details on the first day of the rest of our lives.

I have, and will continue to recommend Monique to every person I know who is having any photograph-able event, be it a wedding or something much more casual (I kind of just want her to follow me around and make my life look awesome). She is an unbelievable talent and an absolute joy to work with. I was stunned when we saw proofs of our pictures - she somehow managed to make me and my husband look like we belong in a magazine. We received access to our proofs very quickly after our sessions and wedding and we both had the best time on the shoots. Beyond the outstanding quality of the photos, Monique is so much fun to work with and truly catches the most precious moments. Immediately after my pictures were up, I got calls from literally four different engaged friends (and one couple who wasn't even engaged yet!) wanting Monique's information. Now I just have to deal with the jealousy everytime I see their pics go up - I want more of my own!!! I'll be coming up with a reason to book her for another session soon :)
