There are not enough words to describe how amazing Scott is! If you want the best of the best than Scott is the guy to go with.Sent on 01/29/2014
When we met him at the bridal expo we just clicked. He's such an easy going, fun guy. We wanted the typical bridal portraits at our wedding but we mainly wanted candid ones and he delivered!!!
We got all teary eyed when we saw our teasers yesterday, both Scott and Dave truly captured the essence of our wedding. They have an amazing eye for framing great shots.
Thank you both for being so truly wonderful. We feel like you should have been guests at our wedding instead of capturing it, but then we wouldn't have such beautiful images!

Scott photographed our "weddingmoon"/destination wedding and I couldn't have asked for anyone better! Since none of our family members were coming to Florida with us, having a quality, professional photographer was extremely important to me. I wanted someone who could translate the spirit of the day into photographs so that we could share that spirit with our family and friends back home and Scott did just that. I really liked that he was incredibly fast at posting some teasers online so that we were able to share them with everyone the day after our wedding. He also made us feel comfortable which was really appreciative, considering aside from the staff at our inn, we knew no one! If you're thinking about booking Scott, I highly suggest that you do -- he's professional, works in a timely manner, and makes the entire process comfortable and worry-free!Sent on 10/02/2013

Creative effective photography
Zach and his team did an amazing job of perfectly capturing our wedding day. The initial consultation was great to learn about Monarch's photography styles and how the day would progress; Zach was very attentive in listening to what we were looking for and made great suggestions along the way. The day of the wedding, Zach and his team captured all the special moments we could have hoped for and even some shots we weren't expecting. The editing of the photos was beautiful and he got our photos back to us ahead of schedule. Thanks for great work Zach!Sent on 12/31/2018

We love working with the staff for Monarch Studio! Every client of ours that has booked with them has been thrilled with the service and product.
I have worked professionally with Scott Smith for several years, and can safely say he is one of Florida's top photographers, both weddings and commercial.
Scott does exceptional photography work!
