PHOTOGRAPHY, TO ME, IS A WAY OF NARRATING VARIOUS UNIQUE LOVE STORIES.
“There is a lot of beauty in ordinary things.” - Pam, The Office.
I believe that your life story should be written with beautiful moments and not with stiff, perfect poses.
I believe that by capturing the images of these unique moments and emotions, I’m adding something positive and worthwhile to our world.
This belief drives my passion to work hard every day and to be my very best. My goal is to connect authentically not as a vendor but as a trusted friend who is genuinely interested in getting to know your story.
Years from now, when you look at your images, I want you to remember and feel the way you did when I captured those past moments.
If you believe I’m a good match to your story, I can’t wait to get to know you!

Even more about me
The more you know, the better!
My purpose in life is to explore the world.
I love challenging adventures as much as I love lazy days at home.
You just have to say the word “travel,” and I will start packing my bags and looking for great spots, which can become a mesmerizing photography background.
In the spring of 2018, I travelled solo 13,443km from Toronto, ON, to Tofino, BC, and back. Across my journey, I have captured “Canadians in Love.” My goal has been to understand both the Canadian soul, the vastness and diversity of its landscapes. My big dream is to create a project called “Love Across the World” and be able to photograph people in love all around the world!
One of the things which are really important to me is ✨FREEDOM✨⠀
Freedom to run my own business, freedom to create art, freedom to decide when I want to take a day off and freedom to work with people with similar values to mine.
When I am not photographing or editing the images, I love to be active! I run, bike, practice paddleboarding and rock climbing. In addition, I adore long walks with my French Bulldog, Kiwi, my General Helper.
Are you thinking of getting married in an intimate setting with your very closest loved ones? Elopements are beautiful options for people who don’t feel like the traditional wedding route is the right fit for them. An elopement grants them the freedom to decide how to commit their lives to each other.
ALL LOVE WELCOME 🏳️🌈
I believe that every love is equal!
I’m lucky enough to live in Canada and be able to capture weddings in different traditions, religions and same-sex couples. Photography, to me, is a way of narrating various unique love stories that will make this world a little bit better place to live.
I love working with adventurous people who are life-long explorers, nature lovers and travellers and who search for new life experiences like I do. Not surprisingly, outdoor weddings, destination weddings and spontaneous elopements excite me.

WHAT COUPLES ARE SAYING ABOUT ME
So Many Gorgeous Photos
Patricia and Simon
“We are so thrilled with our wedding photos. They turned out incredibly and we have so many gorgeous photos to choose from. It’s nearly impossible to narrow down the selection for printing because I love them all! Having to re-plan our wedding due to COVID meant things were changing all the time, sometimes at the last minute, but Monika was so professional and calm throughout the process and really helped us have the wedding we wanted despite the unusual circumstances. She accommodated our plans and requests and made helpful suggestions. I could not recommend her more and I truly can’t imagine our wedding without her. Thank you Monika!”
Reliving our Moments
Mellisa and Michael
“If you’re anything like us and are more concerned about experiencing your day for everything it’s worth versus capturing the “perfect” photo, then this is the right photographer for you, because honestly the photos she capture are so freakin’ amazing. Monika value your experience taking the photos. Our engagement shoot was basically a really fun date! We were able to relive our entire relationship in one evening. Now, when I look back on each photo, I don’t’ just see the photo but I relive that moment and remember what we were laughing or thinking about!”
Nicole and Mark
“Monika is such a down to earth person who is EXTREMELY professional, creative and talented. Her passion for photography definitely shows in the way she runs her business and the quality of her work. Her approach and style is very unique and we are absolutely in LOVE with all our pictures. What we loved most about her style is that none of our photos look staged and she was able to capture pure genuine emotions and some fantastic candids. Even our guests had nothing but great things to say. We would absolutely recommend Monika! She will go over and above to make your day special!!”
Chantel and Adam
“Monika is the best wedding photographer in Toronto and she is also absolutely wonderful person! She is knowledgeable, positive, reliable and she always made us feel comfortable. She provided prompt and thorough communication and met with us before events/shoots to clarify our desired shots and vibes and to really get to know us – which was reflected in our photos. The quality of our photos exceeded our expectations and the photos were always provided to us on the promised timelines.”
Above and Beyond
Caitlin and Scott
“Monika was a true pleasure to work with! She is an excellent person, capturing perfectly the atmosphere and energy of our wedding day from start to finish. She was organized and reliable – she put us at ease knowing that we were in such good hands. She was friendly and fun, fitting in seamlessly with our guests! Monika finished our photos quickly and they look great! She went above and beyond to provide excellent service. We strongly recommend Monika. You won’t regret it!”
Capturing True Essence
Megan and Mike
“We couldn’t be happier with Monika for the experience and support she gave us throughout the entire wedding experience. Whether it was helping to plan out the day’s timeline, or remembering the little moments we found special, her ability to capture the true essence of the day was extraordinary and will be continually cherished for many years to come. Thank you Monika!”
