I didn’t know how hard it was to choose a photographer until I had to find someone for my own wedding. 
I looked at dozens and dozens of websites until finally, one stood out. Something about how she captured people, the emotions, and the vibrant colors made me feel like I was in the right place. It felt like “me”. 

Planning a wedding is a big project and finding a photographer is no small task. Since you’ve made it this far, I hope my style resonates with you and you can stop searching! 

My style is relaxed, timeless and artistic… I like images that are crisp and clear of distractions. I edit with true-to-life colors so the photos look vibrant and alive, and I give myself very high standards for my work because I know how important it is to the families who will treasure their photos for years to come.

Associate Photographer

My business has grown quite a bit over the last few years and I can no longer accept all the inquiries that come my way.  So, I am happy to collaborate with another talented photographer, Monica Vega!  

A word from the woman herself… 

My name is Monica Vega.  I’m a Mexican photographer living in Victoria, B.C. since 2020.

I’ve been doing photography for more than 20 years. At the beginning, it was a passion and a way of expression. Since 2010, it’s been professional as well.

I’ve been exploring different techniques and working on different styles; from social, urban photography, covering festivals, cultural events and concerts to more abstract and artistic pieces, author’s photography, portraits, art covers for music bands, theater, dance pieces and publicity posters.

I’m extremely visual and completely passionate about art, design and aesthetics in general. I look forward to working with you!
