I am extremely satisfied with my portrait photos taken at Monumental Arts by K. Since I hadn't had a professional photo in awhile the process and options were well explained. There was no rush which allowed for a relaxed session. When I asked, great suggestions were given on my accessory choices. Besides taking great photos, providing numerous pose and background options Monumental Arts provided outstanding customer service. They responded immediately to my emails and texts. The online review and purchase process is so easy. BIG THANKS to ace photographer K, who later quickly helped on a rush order.Mar 2, 2017Verified
Nick was just so awesome! We had a portraits done of my boyfriend and I. The very first thing he had us do was sit down and talk. He asked how my bf and I met and then what we liked to do both together and separate. He really wanted to know about us to get the right photos of us. While on the shoot he was very good at finding spots for us and also positions that were cute. When I had an idea he was very willing to try them. He took photos of us being us without him posing us. He did not forced us to kiss at every single photo which was great! Nick was very talkative which was extremely nice and he also knew a lot about the place where we took the photos! Five stars rating for him!Oct 25, 2018VerifiedMonumental Arts's reply
Thank you so much for your five star review! Yesterday's session was so much fun, and I appreciate the details you provided so future Clients see the professionalism they will always receive! You're photos look great and I cannot wait to meet with you again to provide you the prints and images!
I was so happy with the photography session in the studio! We went with the minis session and it was perfect for what I wanted. Everything was perfect, from first contact to the scheduling, the photo shoot, and delivery of photos. We will use Monumental again, I am sure! I highly recommend.Apr 29, 2019VerifiedMonumental Arts's reply

Kris worked very hard to photograph a group of 30 family members 11 of which are children. He was pleasant and accommodating. I have not seen the proofs yet, I am hoping they are as good as he is.Jul 31, 2018VerifiedMonumental Arts's reply
