owner and lead + photographer of MMP.

I am a friendly, caring mother and wife that is very enthusiastic about life. After a fulfilling career in the healthcare industry, I decided to take my project management and leadership background to follow a newfound love and passion for wedding + lifestyle photography. I am so excited to help preserve your most cherished memories! 

Hi I’m Monica, 


"We had complete trust in Monica from the first time we connected...


She is so talented, professional, and considerate. She took the time to get to know Shawn and me, understand our story and personalities, to bring out the best in us! On our wedding day, she arrived and immediately got to work, capturing such special moments and fitting right in with our family and friends. She guided us with our first look portraits, which turned out fantastic, and was so prompt and organized when we did our family portraits amid the party starting! The day was a busy one, with 2 locations, and Monica was able to work around the loud and excitable crowd seamlessly. Her work ethic, sense of adventure, kindness, and friendliness make her an outstanding photographer and professional. I look forward to the next time we need snaps, as my first call will be to Monica. I cannot recommend her enough."
