Monica was amazing to work with and truly captured the beauty and intimacy of our small wedding. We were coordinating just 15 friends and family from all over the world and were unsure what it would feel like to have a professional photographer at such a small wedding. After our first meeting with Monica, we felt immediately comfortable and her friendly, warm and personable approach made the whole experience even more relaxing and enjoyable. We had a couples shoot in advance (highly recommend this!) which provided an opportunity for us to get comfortable being photographed and at our wedding she was an 'invisible' presence and we don't know how she managed to capture so much detail without anyone noticing. He photography is pure art and we are so grateful to have met her. We will definitely use her services again for any future milestones!
If you want to have the most amazing pictures that are heartfelt and very artistic than Monica is the photographer for you. From the moment we met her we knew she was the right person for us. She has such a warm and welcoming way about her. She makes you comfortable which is so important on your happy day! She was very unobtrusive which allowed her to get so many beautiful candid shots.
Each picture told an emotional story. I was so touched by some of the pictures that I cried. I’m so happy that Monica captured so many wonderful moments. Her artistic eye and attention to detail is what makes her pictures so unique. I can highly recommend her. A true professional. She made us look beautiful! She captured our love for each other and our families so well. Thank you Monica!!! :-)
Monica is incredible! I feel so lucky to have found her not just for the beautiful pictures she produced, but also for the pleasure it was working with her. She is completely invested in capturing every moment of your special day. She spent time beforehand getting to know us and our preferences and planned extremely well so that wedding day was easy. On the day of, she was so enthusiastic, taking so many photos, and I could tell she was enjoying it. She also has an amazing knack for being discrete / unnoticeable during candid moments and giving guidance when posing for pictures. I can imagine this is a difficult balance to find as a photographer, but Monica does it just right. We did not notice her at all during the ceremony, yet she was taking so many pictures all the time. When we needed guidance for some posed couples photos, she helped us without being overbearing - and we had fun! I can’t imagine a better experience for wedding day photographer – Monica completely exceeded our expectations. She is just awesome at what she does. And the pictures are WOW. Complete WOW factor – feel free to check out ours on her wedding website. Katie + Ryan. We have received so many compliments on our photos and are amazed by how beautiful they turned out. You do not need to look any further- Monica is the BEST!!!
My fiance and I decided to elope and when we selected Switzerland as our venue, we began to look for the perfect photographer to help us capture our special day for all of our family and friends! We did a lot of research and spoke with many photographers. From the first communication with Monica, I knew we had found the perfect photographer that would help us capture our vision for the wedding day. Additionally, Monica always gave great suggestions for places where we could capture the kinds of shots Andrew and I envisioned. To begin, Monica scheduled a Skype session so that we could introduce ourselves and talk some more about where we would spend our time on the wedding day. Monica sent us samples of photographs so that we could get a better idea of the places we could visit and easily get to from Bern. Andrew and I live in California and this was our first time visiting Switzerland, so it really helped to be in the hands of Monica, who knew the area very well. We decided we would get some shots of us getting ready at the hotel, get the "first look" shots in the garden, then go to Spiez, Thun, and finally take some city shots in Bern. Monica helped us arrange everything. She was so incredibly helpful and so fun to work with. She even suggested my make up artist, Carmen, who I loved! Since we only had one hotel room, Monica arranged for Andrew to get ready on the top floor of the hotel, while I got ready in our Suite. Following our "first look" images, Monica drove us to every other location on our Itinerary. She was full of energy the entire day. I really missed my family and friends on my wedding day, especially when Andrew and I exchanged our vows. However, Monica captured incredibly beautiful images that told the story of our wedding day and our adventure, so when we shared them with our family and friends, it really felt as if they were able to experience every step we experienced that day. I don't feel as though Monica missed anything. I feel very lucky we were able to find such a great photographer. Monica became a friend to us.
Hat mehr geleistet, als sie mit uns abgemacht hatte. Am Fest ist sie eine Stunde länger dabei geblieben. Die Fotos waren alle perfekt und jedes einzelne der knapp 1'000 Bilder nachbearbeitet. Das zusammengestellte Album hat sie ebenfalls kontrolliert und eine Nachbesserung beim Produzenten verlangt. Wir würden Monica jederzeit weiterempfehlen an alle, die unvergessliche Hochzeitsfotos haben wollen.
