When asked to describe her photography style, Monika proudly declares, "Timeless, editorial, and candid." This fusion of approaches allows her to create images that are not only visually stunning but also deeply emotive. Her work is a seamless blend of elegant, classic compositions and spontaneous, authentic moments. Her superpower is to tell the story of a couple's special day through a series of breathtaking, yet genuine, photographs.

Monika's approach to working with clients is one of true collaboration. "Usually they come to me because they like my style," she says. "But I usually ask couples for a photography mood board so I can have an idea of what they like.” This open dialogue ensures that Monika's artistic vision seamlessly aligns with the couple's desired outcome. "Most of the time they are kind enough to include several images of mine," she adds with a smile.

Monika's preference for a streamlined set-up is evident in her choice of equipment. "One body one lens scenario: Canon R5 + 28-70mm," she reveals. This minimalist approach allows Monika to move fluidly through the events of the day, capturing the unscripted moments that often reveal the most genuine expressions of love and joy.

Her post-processing is just as straightforward. She relies on simple Lightroom color correction to fine-tune the images, never wanting to overshadow the natural beauty of the moment.

At the heart of Monika's work is a deep appreciation for the art of photography and the joy it brings to her clients. "The artistic freedom” is what she enjoys most about being a photographer. To be entrusted with the responsibility of preserving the most cherished moments of a couple's lives is a true honor for her.

With a comfortable 15 weddings per year and a standard package of 10-12 hours of coverage, Monika ensures that each couple receives the attention and dedication they deserve. "I don't charge by hour. But my most basic package starts at 5.100€," she says. Although, she’s always happy to work with the couple to create a custom package that meets their specific needs.

Whether it's a local celebration or a destination wedding, Monika's work is a testament to her love for the craft and her commitment to creating timeless, emotive images that will be treasured for generations to come.
