Dear Monica, 

Many thanks for your great support and guidance before, during and after our wonderful wedding.

We are more than grateful to have found you as our wedding photographer – it was just perfect! Your kindness, your flair for (nervous) people and your sense for the perfect picture are just amazing.

And if some couples read this – our message for them: “Book this Lady – she is awesome”.

My wife and I eloped in Copenhagen in June and never planned on having a photographer. Then we changed our mind last minute and Monica saved us. Although on such short notice she was still able to provide us with the best service we could have ever wished for. We live in Germany so she set up a skype meeting to get to know us and talk about what we want. She is such a lovely person and always made us feel comfortable during the whole process. We had never been to Copenhagen, but we wanted pictures all around the city. Thankfully Monica knows the most beautiful spots and places perfect for wedding pictures and led us around like a personal tour guide. After all we were incredibly lucky and grateful to have you Monica! We are happy to call you our only guest at our official wedding! And of course as you can see on her website her work is phenomenal.
Lots of love

We were so fortunate to have chosen Monica as our wedding photographer. She has given us a truly wonderful experience and was an absolute pleasure on the day. Monica is a warm, friendly, easy-going person who really is able to capture the most intimate moments between a couple, as well as with their friends and family. 

 

She really made us feel at ease during the day and was able to capture the emotions that epitomize a relationship: all the happiness, love and joy that we felt. 

 

We cannot recommend Monica enough and she was a pivotal part of our wedding. Thanks so much Monica for giving us such beautiful memories of that day! You captured it perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

Our experience with Monica in one word was... fun! From the first communication exchange to getting our photos, we were so impressed with the entire process. Not being from Copenhagen, we sent out a handful of quote requests to different photographers and her reply back was so personal and detailed compared to others that it was an easy decision to chose her! We had never had a professional photoshoot and were not sure what to expect. It was so appreciated to have had the opportunity to meet with her for coffee before our wedding day in order to get to know eachother - it took that first meeting awkwardness out of the actual wedding day. Monica made us feel so comfortable during our session... we felt like very important people being led around the city with her! She found great spots and were thrilled with how the photos turned out- we can’t stop looking at them! With no hesitation would we highly recommend her, you won’t regret it. Thanks Monica!

We were so lucky to have picked Monica as our wedding photographer. We had an idea of what kind of photos we wanted. Monica was keen for us to share these ideas with her: first over email; and then during a walk in Copenhagen, where she took the time to guide us through central neighbourhoods and parks for the photoshoot.   

 

On the wedding day itself, Monica captured the natural moments between us not only during the ceremony but also during our walk through Copenhagen afterwards. We felt extremely relaxed in her company. In terms of personality, Monica is an approachable, kind, and an over-all warm person, who is still professional and focused on her job.   

 

After a few clicks, we wanted to have a sneak-peak of some of the photos, and were immediately satisfied with what we saw. After that, we just went with the flow, and the photos she captured were amazing! Monica captures emotion: all the love, joy, laughter, and cheeky intimate moments between us were captured seamlessly and to perfection.

 

Now, every time we flick through those photos, we relive our wedding day with smiles on our faces! Monica was part of our wedding day, she helped to create a relaxed atmosphere and is guilty of encouraging a couple of goofy photos (that we love) .

 

We couldn't have picked a better person (or photographer) to spend this joyful day with us.
Thank you once again. 
Love, Ana & Ramzi.

We imagined our wedding as an intimate, spontaneous celebration of two: nothing more - and nothing less. We wanted to be just ourselves, no structures, no formalities, no grandiloquence. And to have some photos for us to remember it just like that. And then we found Monica… and she got it immediately! Across the lovely streets and canals of Copenhagen she guided us so instinctively, like playing almost, making herself invisible and yet always professional and warm for us to be just us, just as we are - nothing more and nothing less. Monica understood us better than anyone, and gave us the most unforgettable present for this important day: perfect photos that tell the truth, that represent as so naturally and freshly and exactly as we wanted. Monica knows exactly what she is doing… when later our closest friends and family had the chance to see the photos, each one had the same comment: how perfectly portrayed, our personalities and our relationship! Thanks, Monica, for those hours of fun together and your wonderful, unique work.

Monica er en helt igennem fantastisk fotograf! Da vi fik billederne fra vores bryllup, blev vi virkelig overraskede - de var langt bedre end vi havde turde håbe på. Smukke, klassiske, humoristiske og afslappede på samme tid, virkelig unikke og med til at gøre vores dag levende, hver gang vi kikker på dem. Inden brylluppet tog Monica sig tid, til at mødes over en kop kaffe og sludre om løst og fast, i forbindelse med vores store dag. På selve dagen ville skæbnen, at Monica måtte blive et par timer længere end aftalt, hvilket hun tog HELT cool og vi fandt straks ud af det.☺

Vi vil helt sikkert spørge Monica igen ved andre store begivenheder i vores liv. 

De bedste hilsner T&M

Monica was the first photographer whom we decided to contact from the whole list of photographers which we had. And our decision to choose her as our wedding photographer was more than the best. We met up with her day before our special day, visited places, where we will have our photosession. She understood very quickly, what kind of photos we would like to have - and it was really perfect experience to work with her. Sometimes we felt, that we are just spending a good time more with a friend, than with a photographer. And of course the result! Our photos are fantastic, professional and just full of our special moments, our feelings! We will be happy to see you again ☺

When we agreed to get married in Copenhagen, I knew I wanted an awesome photographer. I studied photography in college, and photos are very important to me. Never having been to Denmark before, I search the web. I found Monica on myweb.com. Her reviews were really good, and her style was what we were looking for. Monica was quick to e-mail back with any questions we had. 

During our wedding day, it was so special to have Monica, because she felt like a friend. We didn't have our families and friends with us, but Monica made us feel comfortable. She was the only person who witnessed our wedding, and now we feel a special connection with her. If we are in Denmark again, we are definitely going to try to meet up with her. We also are thinking about doing another photo shoot for our 10 year anniversary. As we walked all over Copenhagen taking photos, Monica told us so much about the city and the people. Even though it was raining, we enjoyed every moment. I love looking at my photos, and my family and friends back home really loved that we documented our elopement.

We found Monica’s information at www.mywed.com. After the first Email contact, we liked the easy-going and friendly lady already. As we both are actually very shy in front of the camera and don’t really know how such photo shooting works, we are so happy to find Monica to be our photographer because she guided us so well during the whole process. From getting to know which style of photos we preferred to bringing us to the right shooting places in Copenhagen, Monica helped us a lot figure out what we would like to have in the end. With Monica we had a lot of fun on that day and the photos are just wonderful: natural but also beautiful with the lights and cool background she found for us. Also funny moments are recorded which make our big day more unforgettable. We are just happy and also thankful that we decided for Monica.

Vi vil på det varmeste anbefale Monica som fotograf. Monica tog billeder til vores sensommer-bryllup i august 2017, og vi har ikke på noget tidspunkt fortrudt det. Det hele startede med et kort møde med Monica, hvor vi snakkede om vores behov og forventninger. Vi fornemmede fra starten, at der var en rigtig god og varm kemi. I løbet af dagen var Monica fluen på væggen og yderst professionel. Selv vores gæster nød hendes selskab. Vi modtog en stor portion flot-redigerede billeder. Både de klassiske portrætter og de anderledes og skæve vinkler. Og alt sammen til en yderst fair pris. Får vi en dag brug for en fotograf igen, vil vi til enhver tid vælge Monica.

We found Monica on a photography website. We really liked her photos because they looked very natural, relaxed and professional. During the wedding we understood why. She blends in very well and captures the key moments of the event, the details of the decorations, but also all our guests. She understood us and gave us good ideas on what to do during the photo session, when we were nervous and lacking creativity. 
During the wedding she was everywhere, documenting everything and very friendly to everyone. We found out that she even helped the brother and sister of the groom with a surprise, putting time into translating a speech for them into Romanian, before the event.
We are very happy we met her. She is so easy to talk to. Everyone loved her at the wedding and felt relaxed around her. 
We had a wonderful day and she definitely captured it.

We wanted to be to together as soon as possible so we have decided to go to Denmark to get married and from all the cities we have chosen Copenhagen. We have applied in the middle of July and were expecting to have a date by the end of August but we got almost right away!!! As we have started preparing for the wedding day a few month before the estimated date, everything was ready except the photographer. So we uave started to look for one and we have found 3 options. Monica was the first to reply and seemed to be very responsible so we were not hesitating much and have chosen her. A few days after we had a skype call with her. She has asked what we wanted and we have found right away common language. 
When the wedding day came it was raining hard and we had to change the conception of the photoshoot. And Monica did it well- she has used each piece of the Copenhagen city hall inside, she was playing with the lights, stairs, backgrounds and rain drops, - as a result we got unforgettable memories of the wedding day and amazing pictures which the whole family has hanged on the walls and is showing to everybody!!!
Thank you very much one more time for everything Monica!

We have worked with Monica for our wedding shots in July 2017 and clicked with her as of the first moment we have met her.

She has been kind and nice and didn’t refrain from running around and giving us the perfect and comfortable setting for our special day. Wedding days can be hectic and stressful but Monica was great with handling the chaos, the crowd and the limited time.

Also, our pictures turned out to be great and it is obvious that Monica really worked hard to give us a nice package of our memories from the day. The package  included intimate couple moments as well as happy family & friends gathering moments, carefully selected by her. She has a great eye for this! On another note, she sent us a couple of previews just a couple of days after the wedding even though she was booked with appointments and was leaving for vacation. It was very nice of her to think that we might be happy to see a couple of pictures beforehand.

We appreciate Monica’s work a lot and are happy to cross paths with her. We will, without hesitation, recommend her work for any occasion and can say that personally are delighted to have her in our lives.

We were very happy with Monica as our wedding photographer. We picked Monica because her photos from other weddings showed she was great at capturing couples in their more natural and un-posed moments, and also because her warm personality was exactly what we wanted around that day. We were very pleased with both the process and the outcome, as it was fun to take pictures with her and she got a lot of great shots. Strongly recommended!

We were so lucky to have found Monica online when we were searching for a photographer 1 month before our civil wedding in Copenhagen. The whole experience with her was very easy going. It was so easy to talk to her and transmit our thoughts and ideas. We are very very happy with what she delivered. She's an amazing photographer and a very sweet and kind person. Thank you for everything!

Before our wedding ceremony, we looking for a few photographers and their work, made several different inquiries by e-mail. Someone was busy, someone did not answer at all, while Monica's response was fairly prompt, understandable and kind, in the first letter the answers to most questions were answered. Then for a couple of weeks our video conversation on Skype took place to clarify our wishes. It was very important for us to have a beautiful photo session on the day of the wedding ceremony and Monica did an excellent job of it. Time that day flew like one instant. We were a little tired from an exciting day, but were very pleased. Quite quickly we got the first 5 pictures (teaser), and after the promised time and all the other photos. By the way, our wedding photos from Monica Hjelmslund are still the background on the smartphone's desktop of both mine and Maria.

We are so grateful to have had Monica there to capture our special day.  She took the time to understand what we were looking for and she delivered beautifully.  She is such a warm and friendly person, it felt like we were spending the day with a long time friend. We highly recommend choosing Monica for your day!

Monica very quickly understood exactly what we wanted from our wedding photos. She was very easy to get on with - taking photos with her​ felt more like spending time with a friend. The results were even better than we had hoped - beautiful and elegant photos that capture exactly how happy we felt that day.

We had a great pleasure to have Monica photograph our wedding at Copenhagen City hall in December 2016, and to also make a photoshoot around the city. We chose Monica in the first place based on a wonderful style of the photographs in her portfolio: mild, well-balanced colours and a natural appearance of the photos, where people looked comfortable and spontaneous. This is exactly how our wedding photos turned out, and we are extremely happy with the result. Monica was also very constructive, professional and relaxed in her communication –  all the way from preparations, to the shoot day and afterwards. She blended in organically into our small wedding company, so that the whole experience was very relaxed and plenty of fun. Sincerely recommended! With many thanks, Alona and Donatas

Vi har ved flere lejligheder brugt Monica til portrætfotografering af både børn og voksne. Hun er meget rolig, tålmodig og god til at få den/dem, der skal fotograferes, til at slappe af og føle godt tilpas i en ellers uvant situation. Hun formår at fremkalde det naturlige smil og besidder evnen til at tage de lidt anerledes billeder med masser af spil og liv. Efter en fotografering hos Monica får man billeder af en meget høj kvalitet og et stort udvalg. Det eneste problem er at vælge.☺

Monica får vores varmeste anbefalinger, både når der skal tages billeder til mere officiel brug, og når der skal tages billeder af børnene.
R.F. - København 2016

Monica lægger liv og sjæl i sit arbejde som fotograf, og hendes entusiasme og gode humør smitter, så man slapper af og nyder oplevelsen. Det var fantastisk at have så engageret, men alligevel "usynlig" fotograf til vores bryllup. Vi følte os godt tilpas og rolige ved tanken om at Monica nok skulle fange og forevige de vigtige øjeblikke. Både i kirken, i parken og til festen gjorde hun et fantastisk stykke arbejde og vi kunne ikke have fået en bedre oplevelse eller bedre fotos fra vores store dag.
C & J - September 2016

September 09, 2016

Vi havde en skøn oplevelse med Monica som bryllupsfotograf. Monica formår at være en veninde, der samtidigt er en dygtig fotograf, forstået på den måde, at man føler sig tilpas og i trygge hænder, selvom man ikke er vant til at få taget billeder. Hun er smilende og fuld af gode idéer, men også meget lydhør. Hun er derudover ekstremt passioneret, og det gør bare, at begge parter får en dejlig oplevelse, og mindeværdige billeder. Tusind tak til Monica!

Being excited ourselves about our wedding in Copenhagen, we were very grateful of having Monica as our photographer and actually only guest. With her relaxed and unobtrusive attitude and working style she not only made our day special but managed to take the best photos we could have wished for. The hours of photo shooting were both natural and fun, just walking and enjoying the streets of Copenhagen. The outcome is a beautiful memory - thank you.

Monica forevigede vores store dag på aller smukkeste vis. Tillid var vigtigt for os, og vi var ikke på noget tidspunkt i tvivl om, at resultatet ville blive godt. Monica brugte en rum tid inden brylluppet på at zoome sig ind på vores stil og ønsker, så intet blev overladt til tilfældighederne. Fordi Monica er så omgængelig, varm og empatisk faldt hun perfekt ind i vores selskab. Vores gæster og vi slappede af foran hendes snurrerende kameralinse, og hun fangede mange af de helt særlige øjeblikke, som vi selv mindes igen og igen. Monica har en helt særlig sans for at fange detaljer, som resterne af bryllupskagen, håndtaget på døren ind til kirken, vores søns små laksko. Alt sammen taget med et sikkert æstetisk blik. Vi kan kun give vores aller bedste anbefalinger af Monica - I er i de bedste hænder.

I liked Monica’s flexibility for accepting our requirements with a very short notice although she was busy. Most of the photographers declined our request. I liked the natural post she’ve taken for us and providing us with black and white shots.I also appreciated the extra shots she gave us.

Last but not least she was patient with my kids and loved her smile :)

We selected a few photographers based on their online portfolio before we contacted them. Monica stood out from the rest due to her artistic merit.
After our first meeting with Monica, we both agreed she should be our photographer.  We wanted to film on a boat in the beautiful canals of Copenhagen.  Monica had never done this, but she was all up for it.

On the day of our wedding Monica was there on time, and was there with us throughout the process, she was very patient, had lots of cool ideas and kept to the plan.  She had a good eye for the right spots and she got along with all our guests taking amazing shots.

The day was absolutely sunny, but just after our wedding party it rained, and while we hid in an arch, Monica hailed cabs for us.

The whole process was pain free, reliable and most of all the photographs were fantastic. Monica's artistic ability is clearly evident from her pictures, but to us another thing that was far more important is Monica is an fantastic beautiful person in all aspects.  We never had to worry about the photographs as we just could feel the connection with Monica. 

We would highly recommend Monica to anyone who wants a great photographer and wish her the best in her life.

I couldn't have chosen someone better than Monica to shoot our wedding. She was really kind and objective, sending great details about the photo packages, so I didn't have any doubt about it, her service is in an excellent price also and overall she is such a talented photographer. The day before our wedding ceremony we've met to know the locations and I fell in love for her even more. She is calm, great sense of humor, know exactly what she does and really gave us confidence and a sensation that we're in good hands.

On the ceremony day, she arrived in the hotel early and her presence was almost invisible. She doesn't distract you on your day and she has great initiave to help you out with poses or whatever you need in the photo session. What made me really chose her for our day, is the great look she has through the photography. She has a beautiful way to see the couple, she doesn't have tacky ideas, she is really tasteful and I knew we would have great photos. 

She warned us about how long it would take to send us the photos, but didn't take long from what she promised and we were definitely overwhelmed with the result. I'd highly recommend her for anybody looking for a tasteful photographer and a pleasant person on a special occasion.

Monica er professionel til fingerspidserne. Hun er æstetiker, en dygtig fotograf og en fantastisk menneskekender. Lynhurtigt får hun etableret en tillidsfuld og afslappet stemning, hvor det unaturlige i at posere på magisk vis bliver naturligt. Gennem Monicas linse bliver alle fotogene. What’s not to like?
B. B. - Holte 2016

We met Monica the day before our wedding and we immediately felt a special vibration between us. She interviewed us and she immediately understood which kind of photos we wanted: not the classic and plastic ones, but natural and spontaneous. As a sensitive person, she has been able to read between the lines of our own personality and to take a magnificent picture of it. Everyone at our party was happy to know her and believed that she was one of our friends: she was very warm and friendly. I think that her photos speak for themselves: they tell you how professional and capable she is. She chose a special tour in the city centre, leading us to the perfect and most romantic places, streets, parks, and she took pictures that, for me, are invaluable. Honestly, I can't stop showing them to my friends. I would recommend Monica immediately to anyone who desires a sensitive, sunny, and very professional photographer! Giacomo & Manuel

My husband and I had the perfect experience with Monica. We had no idea what to expect since we eloped last minute and had no time to plan our wedding. We found her by Googling and liked her website. When we met her just before the ceremony, we knew we had struck gold: Monica instantly felt like family. She seemed as excited as we were that we were getting married. Since we had no family at the ceremony, having her warm and supportive presence made us feel cherished. We didn't feel like customers. 

Monica is a true artist - she spent lots of time with us suggesting poses and angles that would make the most beautiful memories of our wedding. We spent a magical afternoon together walking through Copenhagen while Monica photographed us. The results were incredible. My family members, when they saw the photos, felt like they had been there and were in awe of her work. 

My husband and I felt incredibly lucky to share our wedding day with Monica. We can't recommend her highly enough.

Jeg har været super glad for samarbejdet med Monica, både til min datters konfirmation og til portrætbilleder. Monica formår at være "usynlig" og få alle til at slappe af og hun tager nogle fantastiske billeder. Jeg vil helt klart bruge Monica igen, hvis jeg får brug for en fotograf.

Vi hyrede Monica til vores bryllup og var meget, meget tilfredse. Vi mødtes i forvejen og snakkede ønsker igennem og så nogle af de steder, hvor vi kunne tænke os at få taget portrætbilleder. Hun fangede straks vores ideer og ønsker til udtryk og stil. På dagen var hun rigtig god til at skabe en hyggelig og afslappet stemning under portrætfotograferingen, hvilket gjorde det til en rigtig god oplevelse for os. Til selve brylluppet fik hun fanget alle detaljer og stemninger samtidig med at vi ikke bemærkede hende undervejs - det gjaldt både i kirken og til festen.  Alt i alt vil vi varmt anbefale Monica som bryllupsfotograf, da man her får en rigtig dygtig fotograf og meget for pengene.

Monica er meget meget dygtig og jeg er evig taknemmelig for de flotte portrætbilleder jeg fik taget. Monica greb på meget professionel vis min kameraskyhed an, var inddragende og ikke mindst meget behagelig og sød. De bedste anbefalinger herfra.

Vi havde booket Monica som fotograf til vores bryllup, med start fra kirken til efter brudevalsen. Monica er virkelig professionel og ved lige hvordan det hele skal foregå. Vi mærkede ikke at hun var til stede, men alligevel har hun formået at forevige de bedste minder fra vores dag. Jeg vil til enhver tid anbefale Monica som fotograf og hun er også den første vi ville vælge igen når det bliver aktuelt.

Monica er en utrolig dygtig fotograf, som var "fluen på væggen" gennem hele vores bryllup, og hun fik fanget så mange helt fantastiske øjeblikke. Monica har sans for detaljen og så dygtigt til at fange de lidt skæve situationer. Hun er et utroligt empatisk og behageligt menneske, og man mærker tydeligt, at det vigtigste for hende er, at kunden er tilfreds. Hun knoklede både under og efter dagen med at få det helt perfekte resultat til os, og vi er meget taknemlige for de mange flotte billeder.

We had the pleasure of working with Monica on two seperate occassions: our wedding day in 2015 and just before our baby-boy was born in 2016 (1 year after the wedding :)

Monica was recommended to us by our first choice fotographer, who is a friend of the family - but unable to take the wedding shoot herself. Turned out Monica was a very nice person and qualified option - one we have not regretted.

She is very pleasant to be around - a thing we valued much, considering she was invited inside on 2 very special occassions. She blended in very well and did her work alomost unnoticed, it helped us being present in the moment, not considering how we'd look on the photo's. She brought creative proposals to the table and mastered turning our ideas into great shots. And we had fun with her along the way!

The final products were very good, from theme, atmosphere and photo quality point of view - and we found her compensation to be very reasonable. I think actually we got a lot more photo's than agreed.

We can warmly recommend Monica for shoots like these, and we surely will consider her ourselves when the next occasion arrives.
