Monica is AMAZING! You need to hire her! I hired her for my engagement session and my wedding! She comes through each and every time. She is laidback and easy to work with. I am SUPER awkward when it comes to being in front of the camera and have never had a professional photography session. My first professional session was my engagement session. I only know how to smile and stick my tongue out. She has managed to get some romantic and serious pictures out of me and they have turned out GREAT! Her photography skills are exceptional. Her prices might seem expensive at first, especially if you have never hired a professional before.. but it’s worth the price. Don’t try to be cheap on photos that you will last you a life time. I will continue to use her for all of my life events! Next up: maternity session (in a few years)

We opted to not have a videographer for our wedding in order to invest in our pictures. I knew instantly that I wanted Monica to do our engagement and wedding pictures, and it was one of the best investments we made. I want to thank Monica so much, as she has been so patient and understanding with us from the start. I can be a bit of a perfectionist and sometimes indecisive but she was so amazing with me, helped me throughout the whole process and truly gave me the most beautiful pictures that I will be able to cherish for the rest of my life.

Monica and Lauren captured my wedding this June and they did an absolutely AMAZING job!! The pictures were better than I could have imagined and I was so excited to show them off to my family. They helped us remember all the little details that we missed on my wedding day. I am so happy that we went with Monica! I’d recommend her to anyone 🙂

Monica did our wedding and engagement pictures earlier this year and did an amazing job! Both my husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera but she made us feel comfortable and natural. Her photo’s are beautiful and we couldn’t have been happier.  From the first time we met to the day of the wedding, Monica had great energy. Her photo’s speak for themselves but her dedication  passion for photography is apparent. Along with Lauren and Adrianna they were able to not only capture the important moments but also those moments we wouldn’t have thought to capture. If your looking for a wedding photographer, you couldn’t get a better team 🙂

There are not enough stars on Yelp to rate how amazing Monica is as a photographer. I truly mean that. I photograph corporate events and have gotten to know many wedding photographers over the years, and yet when it came time for *my* wedding, who did I go with? Monica S Photography. I met Monica in 2015 (my wedding was 5/7/2016) because she was shooting a wedding I was a bridesmaid in, and off the bat she made an impression with how well she dealt with time pressure, and how nice and personable she remained throughout the day (I’ve known several photographers who have gotten cranky and rude as the wedding progressed), so I was sold on her personality and charm. “But, how good is she?” I wondered…And then I saw her photos…I was floored, guys! Her style is so soft and romantic, and she has an incredible eye for angles/details. Her second shooter, Lauren, also is incredibly talented and so much fun to be around. I did my engagement photos with Monica and wedding with Monica and Lauren, and I’m seriously upset that I don’t have an excuse yet to have them photograph me again–and I actually dislike getting pictures taken!

 

I will also say this, when I was looking for wedding photographers/videographers, I noticed that many filed their price packages under a heading titled “Investment.” Frankly, I thought it was just a cute marketing word because much of the work I had seen was pretty ordinary. When I came across Monica’s website, I thought surely, surely I could never afford her. Her work is the stuff of magazines. But, turns out, we **could** afford her! And *her* work is truly an investment. If you look through her portfolio, you will probably think to yourself, “Wow, these are beautiful!” And those are just strangers you’re looking at. Just wait…because when that day comes and suddenly it’s your face and your beloved’s face in those photos, you’re going to cry your eyes out. You’re going to look so beautiful and you both will look so happy and in love, and the photo will be so perfect in every aspect…In that moment, you will know that these are the photos that you’re going to show off to your grandchildren one day. These are the photos that will be most cherished and held closest to your heart…And Monica made that possible for me. I seriously cannot thank her enough. And I cannot recommend her enough. You won’t regret a single thing if you contract her.

 

Monica wrote

Ohh myyy goshhh!! ALL of the pictures are beautiful we just love them all. we couldn’t stop laughing at some of them because they brought back memories. You guys captured every emotion and moment perfectly! I am so grateful that you and Lauren were there capturing our day! You guys are the BESTTTT and will forever contact you for future pictures 🙂

“A friend recommended Monica to me when I was looking for a photographer for my wedding. After looking at only a few of her pictures.. I knew she was the one! She did exactly what I was looking for! After meeting her I immediately felt comfortable with her.. she was so nice! She responded to emails quickly whenever I had a question for her. On the big day.. she was so professional and at the same time it felt like she was just a friend at my wedding taking pictures. I’m in love with every single picture I’ve seen so far and can’t thank her enough for capturing our most important day as beautifully as she did! I am not kidding when I say you NEED her to take your pictures for whatever the occasion! She’s the best! :)”

“I knew as soon as I saw Monica’s work that she HAD to do our wedding photos. She is so talented and has an eye for what looks amazing; her work had just the “look” we were going for. We planned the entirety of our wedding from the East Coast and she was so easy to work with, always responding to emails quickly. Even though we didn’t meet Monica in person until our big day, she put us both at ease quickly and made sitting for photos so easy and fun. She captured our wedding day perfectly and we were so excited to see sneak peeks within the day. We can’t wait to see the rest! We can’t wait to use her for future sessions as our story continues and our family grows 🙂 Thank you again, Monica! ”

I learned about Monica S Photography by a friend posting a picture on Facebook of her 1 year old’s birthday party that was taken by Monica. The photo was stunning. Just bright, gorgeous colors that popped. I was actively looking for a wedding photographer and emailed Monica immediately. I completely lucked out as she was available for my October 12th wedding. Her wedding price packages beat most of the photographers my wedding venue suggested and once she sent me a link to her portfolio, I was sold. Monica and Lauren showed up on time and were completely professional, yet not invasive or pushy. As a person who doesn’t typically like have staged photos taken, I felt completely comfortable in front of them. I didn’t even notice them taking photos during the ceremony, yet a have the most beautiful pictures now from it. I am so happy that I chose Monica S Photography and I highly recommend her and Lauren. I honestly think her work is better than some of the photographers I interviewed who where charging $8,000 and higher for smaller photo packages in Sacramento. I would recommend her for any bride, especially a bride who wants gorgeous photos but without feeling like a photographer is in your way the entire night.

Thank you so much, Monica and Lauren. You did an amazing job!

Monica did an amazing job capturing life-long memories for my husband and I. Our wedding photos are gorgeous and I am forever grateful that we chose her as our photographer. Her passion and love for what she does can definitely be seen in our photos. Not one time did she ever make us feel like we were just her clients, but more like her friends. She was extremely patient and friendly and she went above and beyond to make us happy. I was very anxious and couldn’t wait to see all of our photos and to my surprise, she had them ready for us to view in a matter of weeks. Yes… weeks! As a new bride, that meant the world to me. She has blessed us with photos that tell a beautiful story and capture so many emotions. We both thank you Monica from the bottom of our hearts! We look forward to having you capture many more memories for us in the future.
