meet monica behind the lens

Hi, I’m Monica. I am a wedding and portrait photographer. I am passionate about capturing the most meaningful moments of your life so that they may be preserved for your children, your grandchildren, and especially for you! I love to document the in between moments, the stolen kisses, the laughter, the loving glances, and the beautiful connection that happens when people gather to celebrate life’s most important milestones. Creating cherished family heirlooms from these moments is an honor and a joy.

I believe that the most beautiful photographs are not about the perfect pose and lighting (although these things are important!) but about the honest emotion that happens when two people are in love with each otherI believe in romance. I believe in happiness. I believe in celebration. I believe in the simple and yet profound gift of being surrounded by family and friends. These are the moments that we will remember and cherish forever.

Based in San Antonio, Texas, my photography has been published in San Antonio Wedding Magazine, The Knot Magazine, Ruffled Blog, and Wedding Wire. I have also been named in The Knot Best of Weddings three years in a row for 2016, 2017, and 2018. But my biggest professional success has been the hundreds of joyful clients I have had the pleasure of photographing and having a blast with over the years. This work has elevated my heart and given me so much joy.

When I’m not capturing moments of connection through photography you can find me spending time with my wonderful family, booking a trip to explore the world with my husband and kids, drinking sweet tea, eating pizza, laughing, grabbing a coffee, collecting old cameras, gathering all things vintage, relaxing at home, or enjoying a day at the beach. I feel incredibly lucky to do this work and have this life.
