Full Description
A little bit about me… I am based in Cambridge, UK Award Winning Photographer. I'm a self-taught wedding, new born, family, pet and fine art photographer with more than 6 years experience .  I am lucky enough to be able to travel and offer my services throughout the world. I am a total photography addict, carrying my camera with me everywhere capturing all of the beautiful moments and things that I see. When I'm looking through my lens I am in a different world and I love to bring these reflections back with me. On those rare occasions when I’m not holding my camera, I enjoy simple things like good coffee with loved ones, emotional costume drama ;), sunshine, bike rides and traveling. I offer professional yet relaxed photo shoots either outdoor on location taking advantage of the natural light or indoors using my mobile studio. I am always delighted when invited to document a wedding.  I always make sure I capture the very essence of the special day along with all the happy memories to keep for a lifetime. Please have a little look around my website, I hope you will enjoy what you see.  If you’d like to book with me or have any queries, just get in touch.

I would 100% recommend Monika to anyone.
I would 100% recommend Monika to anyone. Monika did our wedding in April this year , I wasn’t one for lots of photos of myself but she made me feel so comfortable and captured some really gorgeous photos that we will forever treasure. She worked so hard all day and evening and captured so many pictures of everything we wanted and more! All the guests absolutely loved her as well! Professional and lovely she made our day stress free. I can’t stop looking at all the photos they are amazing! Thank you

We wanted our wedding to be a relaxed affair... and the photography to capture this with lots of natural shots of us and our guests enjoying the day. I found Monika really listened to what we wanted but also was great at putting forward suggestions and ideas of things to consider. Lots of our guests remarked on how good she was and I know our venue team also thought she was great. The photo’s were gorgeous and I know Monika puts a lot of effort and pride into the editing. Highly recommended!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

romantic, natural, relaxed, fun, creative

What about your business are you most proud of?

I built my business from nothing. I have no Photography education but I've followed my dream.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't rush to book first supplier you speak to. Meet them in person, get opinions, listen to your gut feeling. Never book supplier judging by the price byt their style, personality etc.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After an initial contact, usually via email, I will arrange face to face meeting to get to know one another. I don't book with every person that I meet. As much as I might not be the right fit for the client, as much they might not be right for my style. However I am easy going, bubbly and dedicated therefore I don't complain and get booked quickly ;) At the meeting we go though couple's expectations, my work, packages to find best one. I bring my sample albums and we, in general, chat, laugh and have nice time over coffee. If the couple is happy to book me, I prepare contact and invoice which are then emailed to my client. A deposit is required to secure the date. I keep in touch with all my clients via email till we meet to have Pre-wedding shoot and then until the wedding and after.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

First Kiss

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

One couple wanted to have photo in big bath in their suite. I was fun :) - no water was involved ;)

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace it! if it's just a drizzle, I have beautiful white umbrellas which look great on photos. If it's heavy rain or very windy, we can take photos indoors. I check forecast beforehand and if it's needed, I take my studio lights. Alternatively, we can meet at later date on location to have outdoor shoot in wedding attire (available instead of Pre-wedding Shoot or with extra charge).

Describe how you got into photography.

I loved photography since I was very little. My mum loved it too but she would never allow me to take photos with her film camera. However I could use it with no film in it. So I would walk around our garden and "take photos" of butterflies, birds, flowers and all pretty things :) Years gone and I bought small bridge camera which I would take everywhere with me. Every spare time, day off I would spend on visiting National Trust places, cute towns, walk around and travel just to try new techniques and capture everything beautiful. This is how I see this world through my lens; colourful, bright and idyllic. World is not always this and often opposite, that's why I focus on it's beautiful side.
