getting personal

I was originally born in Seoul, but I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. Well, I use the term “grew up” very lightly haha. As soon as I turned 18, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia with my sweet Mama. A few years later, I met by best friend and married him in late 2015. We currently reside right outside of Atlanta and have 2 fur babies together.

When I’m not taking photos, I run a food blog (@FoodByMonicaK) which is still very much in it’s infancy stage. Food and overall wellness is a passion of mine and I can talk about it forever!

“Hiring Monica was probably the best decision I made for my wedding! Her photos are incredible and I am constantly getting compliments on my engagement and wedding photos! From the first time I contacted her, Monica has felt like a friend- super kind, responsive and professional. She’s a great communicator and really listens to your vision and makes it happen!

My wedding day was quite stressful and overwhelming and she really stepped up to the plate by taking initiative in rallying the wedding party and getting every photo I asked for! My husband and I are awkward in front of the camera but Monica made us feel relaxed and made us look like naturals in the photos! I love candid photos and she really captured what I hoped for! I really am so thankful I have found my forever photographer- we’ll definitely use her in the future for kids and holidays!”

"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do."

I’m obsessed with books just as much as I’m obsessed with binge watching tv (Game of Thrones and Grey’s come to mind), anything food related, and fitness. I also love Jesus, but I do cuss a little (sorry mom).

My favorite things to eat are bibimbap, kimchi cold noodles, kimchi fried rice, butter chicken, and the #2 or #3 from Cafe Rakka in Hendersonville, TN. I also do love a fresh donut from time to time and if I order a pizza, it has to have extra sauce. If I can put sriracha or franks on it, I probably will.

Believe it or not, I prefer to be behind the camera.

When you book with me,

I want you to know that you're booking more than just a photographer. You are booking a friend, a partner, and a professional.
