Hey! I'm Monika!
I'm a wedding + elopement + engagement + portrait photographer based out of Durango, Colorado.
A little more about me:
I've lived in Durango for several years now and I'm convinced it may be the most beautifully epic place ever. I have an intimate and very unique knowledge of the surrounding San Juan Mountains, and Four Corners area, given my geology background, and bring something a bit more special for outdoor photography sessions. Although born and raised in Texas, I consider myself a true Durangoan by virtue of the Durangotango.
I believe photographs are more than simply a beautiful picture, but rather a memory encapsulated and relived through the eyes. I seek to tell your story through my own creative vision, and love the candidacy and naturalness of human's personal relationships. Never will I put couples into awkward and forced poses, because after all I'm shooting specific personalities, not molding you into something you aren't!
If you see me around town, I'll likely either be rock climbing, walking my pup, Moki, on townie trails, or spraying about geology, minerals, and plate tectonics to my students at the local community college.
