Monica was originally born in Seoul, South Korea, but spent her childhood in Nashville, Tennessee. When it was time for college, she moved down to Atlanta so her Mama could open up her own hair salon. Years later, Monica married her long time best friend who later made her a Mama to 2 wonderful fur babies.
“Working with newborns, families, couples, and photographing weddings, I still love nothing more than looking through my lens and documenting the moments that make human relationships so rich. When I see the way you laugh, the way you look at each other, your eyes sparkle- I see your life as a work of art. I’m an observer and on the lookout for intimate and artistic images, catching the magical light while “moments” are happening.”
When Monica isn’t looking through her camera lens, she is teaching at Pure Barre Woodstock, or traveling with her husband. www.mariettaphotographer.com
