Hello my name is Monifa and but you can call me Mo.  My love for photography began in 1996. Fast forward to 2009 when it blossomed into something more meaningful.  After marrying the love of my life (Kev) and having our first son Ian (Mukesh came eight years later), it changed my perspective forever. Being a blessed wife and mom, I learned the value of capturing what matters most in life.   The inspiration for selflessness, devotion, and timeless memories was the beginning of my photography world. 

I am ardent about what I take but also how I take it. It's not scripted or posed, the wedding day is completely organic. Through the chaos, makeup, fast food boxes, I capture it in its raw form. Through the years I've masterred  image manipulation, yet this is the time I let everything remain imperfect yet perfect. Images are eloquently captured in a candid, romantic, and chic form, that best displays my clients inner and outer beauty. It speaks without words and connects with your inner emotion. It's artsy and creative, but importantly it is about you.
