Hey, I’m Monika Berry; photographer, mama + beachcomber. Devoted to good coffee, gutsy creativity, weekend road trips and (above all) my wee family by the sea.
About MB Captured
Photography isn’t a profession, it is a way of life. Just ask my husband, every road trip is full of stops to ‘get a photo’.
MB Captured was brought to life in 2012 to bring a fresh perspective to wedding photography. I wanted to create a service that was fun, easy and relaxed for people to be in front of the camera, to showcase their true beauty and connection with one another. You will never see me asking you to pose or making things awkward or drawn out. I pride myself on being able to see the beauty in every moment and capturing it to showcase your day or moment in the best way possible.
For weddings, we will get the must-have shots on the day as well as a mix of natural and effortless love-filled moments.
For lifestyle, we will capture the true essence of you and/or your family in your own natural setting. Like a time capsule. There is strictly no matching denim or studio backdrops around here.
For elopements or engagements, I am a master of giving you space and allowing your natural connection to come out, regardless of how uncomfortable you might feel in front of a camera. These intimate settings are some of my favourite photo shoots to date.
Since MB Captured was launched, a lot has happened;
- I’ve collaborated and created brand magic with dozens of businesses, including people such as Sophie Cachia and Renée Enright.
- Launched a partnership business, House of Sage, which is where you will find me working on brand campaigns + business photoshoots.
- I even produced a series of fine art prints which I think are, well, pretty fine. Which lead to a homewares brand, Hazel + Wolf.
I adore nothing more than delighting people with my craft. You can follow my latest work on instagram @mb_captured
Raised as an only child by a single mother, we had our fair share of adventures. The greatest one was travelling around Australia in a ‘grasshopper green’ Kombi van in 1992 with our dog, Rolly. It was the kind of life we led, carefree and fun. These days I am a mum to Jack + Emily, spending our days in our seaside town, Ocean Grove Victoria, sipping big cups of coffee with my husband and planning our next adventure.
