Photo by Sarah Margaret Hunter's Phototique


I was originally born in Seoul, South Korea, but spent my childhood growing up in Nashville, Tennessee. When it was time for college, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to support my mama so she could open up her own business. Years later, I became a wife & mama to 2 furbabies.

In the midst of this, I was a jewelry designer, but somehow that led to a camera in my hands. That is when I realized that I had a passion for photography.

When I'm not taking photos, I'm consulting for small businesses, teaching at Pure Barre, or traveling with my soulmate.

Hi I'm Monica and I'm in love with capturing the moments that make human relationships so rich

Working with couples and photographing weddings over the years, I still love nothing more than to deliver an album and hear someone gushing (sometimes crying) over their photos. When you look at your pictures, these are taking you back in time to very special and intimate moments with your closest friends and family or whatever! To me, your life is a work of art. When I see the way you laugh together, the way you look at at each other, your eyes sparkle- that's what I'm working to capture so that you can relive that moment again and again.


I treat every session and wedding as a unique experience from the start. I'm an observer and on the lookout for intimate and artistic images, trying to catch a light flare while “moments” are happening. My style of shooting is for people that want a more "unposed look" because I want to show your love as it is. If you're silly, I'll capture you guys laughing. If you're emotional, then I'm going to capture your tears.

I work hard to get to know you so that when you see your photos, they look like you as you lived it. If you like what you are seeing on the site, then it’s time to contact me about your session or big day!
