I'm MONROE

I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images on film at the age of 22 when I discovered my dad's old Pentax in the attic. The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced me to put my camera phone down and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around me.

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that!

The South.
Where love, family and tradition are the sugar in our tea.”

I was born and raised in the coastal city of Charleston, South Carolina and after marrying my husband David, we moved out to beautiful Isle of Palms. Since then, I've traveled up and down the East Coast documenting love stories for couples and families. 

My love for photography has brought me everywhere from the beaches of Southern Florida to the mountains in Hawaii. But regardless of where I travel, the cobblestone streets and colorful houses of Charleston will always be my home. 

they are incredibly kind people as well as extremely talented photographers and we would highly recommend them.

ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND WEDDING

Sipping sweet tea 
on the font porch.

(with extra honey.)

Nothing cools you down faster in a Southern summer than a tall glass of sweet tea on the front porch (with extra honey of course!) Throw in a few friends and you have the ingredients for a perfect night.

Sunset sails on the ocean

Ski boats are fun, but nothing beats packing a picnic and heading out for a day of sailing on the ocean. Turn on Amazon's "Yacht Rock" radio station and pack a picnic lunch for the perfect Sunday afternoon.

Catching waves on the beaches of Folley 

While I may not be trying out for the Quiksilver team anytime soon, I love mornings spent catching waves on the shores of Folley Beach.

THE HEART BEHIND THE PHOTOS

it all began with a kiss. 

The first time my dad saw my mom, he was so sure she was the one, he walked straight up to her and gave her a kiss. Was it forward? Yes. But it worked. It's been 32 years and they're still going strong. 

My parents have always been a beautiful example of love, intimacy and marriage. And when my mom got sick, it wasn't home decor or baked goods that my dad brought to the hospital, it was photos. Photos remind us of the strength, courage and hope that reside in all of us the way few other things can.
