Your Vacation Photographer in Chicago: Meet Monica

Meet Monica

My passion is to capture the moment at the click of a button. I like to do creative and candid portraits, always exploring the beauty of natural light. I know what beautiful looks like, and I can see yours. I know how to bring it forward, and how to capture it with my camera. I will give you guidance on natural posing and the confidence to feel yourself in front of my lens. I have been fortunate that my life and work has taken me to some of the most beautiful destinations across Asia, America and Europe. I love to watch and explore. As a Getty Images exclusive contributor, my photographs have been published extensively worldwide in a large variety of media. 

Three Things

  1. I was formerly an Interior Designer, and it was this artistic background which gave me the chance to explore my exciting new career.
  2. My hubby and I are total foodies and wine lovers, so we are always searching for new restaurants that open in the city.
  3. My friends tell me that I am the best guacamole and margarita maker!

Favourite Place to Shoot in Chicago
My favourite spot to take my clients is the River Walk and Adler Planetarium. I love the gorgeous skyline of the iconic architecture close to the water.
