I know it seems like I’ve been MIA, but I promise you, I’m working hard behind the scenes! So much to come, it’s a bit overwhelming (in the best way!). I’ve been swamped with business meetings + working nonstop on some new workshop endeavors. It’s all tooooo good! I’ve also had several shoots over the past week, but none I can share ;) Also!!! I can’t figure out how to upload a PSD file to my wordpress woocommerce page (to sell as a “product”), which is why I haven’t released my timeline yet. Any advice!? Happy Friday!
ONE DAY ONLY!!!!! My presets are live one last time, today, Friday the 13th! This is the last time I’ll be releasing this pack, so if you’ve messaged me about getting your hands on them, now is your chance! Remember, these presets are for adobe Lightroom, not your phone ;) www.moniqueserraphotography.com
So a lot of photographers messaged me after I posted about only having 3 more 2019 wedding spots available. Things like “you are goals!” and “how do you do it!?” Don’t get me wrong, your messages genuinely make me smile and are so supportive and encouraging! However! I don’t want to mislead anyone or make anyone feel less than, when the truth is: I’m just taking less work! I don’t have 3 spots available of like 35 wedding dates, I promise you that. My goal has always been to cut back once I had my daughter, and in order to move forward honoring that promise to my family, I’m really limiting the weddings I do from here on out. So! I promise I’m not as cool or #goals worthy as it seems. Although, it felt good for a hot second 🤣 if you even have one wedding for 2019, you’re crushing it friends!
When your first time picking up a camera in almost three months looks like this.... 😭 Lisa and Colin were the dream team, and I felt so blessed to be the one capturing their genuine and infectious joy! Their wedding was an intimate ceremony, with fifty of their closest friends + family, overlooking hills, mountains, and endless rows of vineyards. They hired my actual dream team of vendors, and every single person came together to make this beautiful wedding come to life. Watching the new Mr and Mrs walk off in the sunset... laughing, kissing, dancing (and the occasion booty grab) instantly reminded me of how truly blessed I am to get to call this my job. It’ll never get old. #readytobeaneddy ....

Happy Fourth of July! Be safe 🇺🇸
I just spent five hours working on something special for my 2019 bride + grooms, and my heart is feeling very full and very very grateful. I can’t wait for all that’s to come! I have five spots left for 2019 wedding season! Also, my 2018 wedding season starts this Saturday (what?!)!! I’m sort of in disbelief that my maternity leave flew by so quickly, but also so ready to pick up my camera again and dive back into what I love doing so much! Ps. If you’re still here reading this... I think I have a problem. Can you tell from my feed that I’m obsessed with photographing red heads? It’s becoming too obvious 🤣 Photography @moniqueserraphotography Retreat @styledyou_ by @maeandco_creative Location @thehidesert Makeup @makeupbywhit Hair @kaylanicolebeauty Dress @sarahseven Florals @goodseedfloral Model @reedalyson
Jacob and Izzy, I am SO honored to be your wedding photographer!!!! I’ll be happy dancing allllll year long as I get to be on this journey with you! 2019 is already shaping up to be an amazing year, and I only have a few wedding dates left (so email me ASAP if you want in!).
Happy Friday eve! Yesterday was my husband and my 4th wedding anniversary, and we spent the evening at home, eating takeout, drinking wine, and watching the Originals. It was perfect! For our five year I’m trying to convince him we need to go to Bora Bora... but he’s not on board yet, so could someone plan an elopement there around June 27th 2019?
