Amazing Wedding Photos

Zach Thomas at Monarch Studio took excellent care of us during our engagement, wedding planning, and throughout our entire wedding day on the 4th of July. I originally hired him for the way he captured all the bold colors and contrast of lights and darks but also loved how he made the natural light of day or night work for the photos. He gives clear instructions, makes suggestions and changes gears when a pose or location isn't quite working out, and recognizes when a candid opportunity presents itself. Zach and his assistant captured the cutest expressions on myself and my youngest daughter on my wedding day that really mirrored each other and represented our true personalities. Our final images are vibrant, charismatic, and truly tell our story from beginning to end. If you didn't attend, you can clearly feel like you were there. Zach worked so hard to create the look that we wanted and the outcome made this almost 50 year old bride incredibly happy! We plan on working with him again in the future for our business and personal photography needs!

Excellent pictures and photo shoot

So I鈥檒l start by saying Zach is awesome. I was so nervous about my engagement to my girlfriend and he knew just how to help. We spoke beforehand a few times to make sure the plans were set and we were both on the same page and that was helpful and reassuring. I was so nervous and consumed by remembering my speech that he made a drawing and put a business card of the exact spot where to stand (as this was a surprise to my girlfriend) so that he could get the best view for the photo. It was sprinkling a little at the beginning but Zach took the best photos and really made the shoot an incredibly enjoyable and memorable event. He knew the perfect spots to take pictures in St. Augustine and was really patient as neither one of us knew how to stand or what to do with our hands. Lol. Zach even recommended places to eat to help celebrate the occasion while we were visiting after the shoot. Zach was so meticulous with his 3 step process for making sure the album was perfect. We really appreciated that. We purchased extra pictures and we could not be more thrilled with how beautiful they came out. We got so many compliments on just the proofs. Needless to say the photo shoot went flawless and we love the pictures. We highly highly recommend Zach and Monarch Studio.

Best Wedding Photography!

Zac and his team were incredible. They worked with us and helped put our vision into the photos we will forever look at. Katharine was very responsive to emails and answered any questions we had. We had a meeting a week before the wedding to really nail down a shot list and figure out what was most important to us and which pictures we wanted/didn't want. I respected his opinion on everything and followed all of his advice. He and his assistant were so efficient, flexible, and had such fun personalities. My husband and I are both pretty introverted and posing for pictures felt so natural and comfortable with them. We felt like we were hanging out with friends and it eased both of our nerves a lot. They just made it really fun for us throughout the entire day but they were also so professional. Thank you so much for being such a special part of our day! We couldn't have done it without you.
