Have you ever hard professional pictures taken? I think some of you may have as you have GORGEOUS headshots for your blog… whereas I just randomly find whatever half decent picture is lying around and crop accordingly. Heh.
We didn’t even get a professional photographer for our wedding… the woes of two broke students. So imagine my surprise when I entered a wellness challenge in the fall to discover one of the many amazing discounts I could take advantage of was a photography session with the AH-MAZING Monica Dawn.
Check these bad boys out:
Aren’t they completely stunning?!
We actually set a date to take the pictures back in the fall. But between illnesses on our part and so. much. rain. we had to reschedule a few times. Finally we decided to just wait for the spring and I’m so glad we did as these turned out far better than my wildest expectations. The lighting is perfect, and seeing all of the greenery and flowers as our backdrop makes the pictures bright and beautiful.
She really captured our happiness and love for one another. And don’t get me wrong, I love the somewhat random, candid photos we have around the apartment of us over the years, but hanging these up is definitely more grown up. I LOVE them.
Was it cheap? Hell no. Was it reasonably priced for the service and professionalism we got? You bet! She worked with our schedule and even included Sunny in some of the pictures as I expressed how important she is to me as part of our family. And getting Sunny to pay attention and look happy on command is no easy feat.
My favourite part? After having the pictures done, she finished processing them quickly and efficiently and sent me a link to her website for our own online photo album. I was then able to pick the ones I liked and order the sizes I wanted. She has loads of options from hard cover books to canvas wraps, even mini wallets.
I highly recommend getting professional pictures done, if you are in the Northern California Bay Area or Central Valley, you should definitely reach out to Monica Dawn. I’m so glad we did.
