And I plan to keep it that way. You might hire me because I'm a talented photographer...but I know that I'm here to use that talent to enhance and capture a beautiful experience.

One that has nothing to do with me—
and everything to do with you, your people, and your memories.

Which means this day is all about you.

last time i checked, this is your wedding, no?

Years from now, you should look at your photos and be filled with joy because you cherish the memories. Not filled with regret because you were forced to spend hours taking pictures!

I can promise you...

They take up your whole damn day, and focus all their efforts on their art, their timeline, and their future Instagram Reel.




Some photographers think your wedding is all about them.




-Nathalie R.

"Sonju and her crew made the process fun and memorable. She said, "I want to get take great shots without taking you away from the party for too long." Who wouldn't love such a photographer?"

My approach to wedding days is 80% candid, and 20% gently posed. Meaning: I will gently guide and direct you but will also capture you and your loved ones just being YOU. And I do it all with minimal distractions in that good, good light.

The result? True-to-life and artistic photos you can hold onto for years to come.

And yes...an album full of pictures that will someday give your kids a glimpse of your memories, who you are, and proof that you knew how to throw one hell of a party. 

Joy-filled Memories

And once you get your photos, you'll have the images and memories to prove it.

I learned the wedding photography ropes by assisting and observing established and talented Miami photographers. It's been 15 years since I went out on my own, and now, I'm an experienced photographer and an industry leader myself.

I bring years of knowledge, experience, and practical advice to the table as we prepare for your wedding. And I'm here to answer any questions or concerns you may have—photography-related or not.

You'll quickly understand that you and your photographs are in solid, professional, and more than capable hands.


A Photographer You Can Count On

- Vanessa D.

We loved that all of her work looked very natural and not staged, and they felt so authentic and so beautiful. She truly has a gift and it is so evident in her work.

What drew us to Sonju was her realistic style.

- Grace R.

She was able to alleviate anxiety for me because she was always able to answer my questions, responded quickly, and had sound advice.

She goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable and answers all of your questions.

Gimme the DEETS, SONJ

(It’s also why I still feel the need to move every couple of years. And it explains my obsession with booking flights to faraway lands. But I digress!)

This is why I’m not only passionate about what I do, but I'm a stickler for printed work and getting a handcrafted heirloom album of your day in your hands. 

Thanks to my dad's job I’ve lived in over 60 homes during my 40ish years on this planet. 

I started grade school in Egypt, vacationed with my family in Bali, Cyprus, Germany, and Switzerland, and started high school in Taiwan. 

Growing up, my parents took thousands of photos, but the only physical memories I have to tell those stories are a handful of prints and a small stack of family photo albums (SIGH.)

A Heartfelt Passion

I LIKE IT

​​​​​​​And you can rest assured that I'll do the same for you.

I've been photographing make-out seshes (I mean, uh - couples) since 2007 without making it weird.

He's with me

Sharp, authentic, creative, funny as F, and unstoppable (thanks, Mom.)

My friends would describe me as...

I'm most likely scrolling TikTok, forgetting to thaw the chicken, and endlessly working to eradicate the band Journey from all wedding receptions, FOR.EV.ER.

When I'm not taking photos...

- both in my photos and my personality.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME

-Monica

Hiring a photographer to document your life can be daunting since it seems like there are so many out there, but Sonju is the real deal - the perfect combination of a talented artist and great person to work with.
