about page photo larger


I am in love with the dance of life, spring, summer, fall and a bit of winter.

Seeing people interact with the seasons and each other, showing their silly side and the love they have for each other is magical.

I join in behind the lens to capture that joy and turn it into memories, little treasures to come back to.

These moments are yours, let’s celebrate them together, and create little time capsules to revisit any time you want.

Magic lies in the small moments.  What kind of magic do you want to create today?



Monika holds a Bachelors of Fine Art Degree from Frostburg State University and a Masters of Fine Art in Photography from the Academy of Art in San Francisco.

I love all types of artistic expression, but I have found my passion in photography.

Allowing the lens to reflect someone’s unique personality and spirit,

whether that is working on location at a shoot or in the editing booth, makes my heart happy.

When I’m in the studio, I want to find beauty and joy in the memories caught with those you love.



Rachel holds an Associate of Arts Degree with a concentration in visual arts from Hagerstown Community College.

Client Testimonials

_DSC1230“We have gone to Wertman Photography for our engagement pictures, wedding pictures, and will be using her for a lifetime! She is extremely professional the entire time as well as a total sweetheart.

You can definitely tell when a photographer takes the time and care for every photo session in the product you receive. We have loved everything from Wertman Photography.

She makes you feel like you are the only client in the world. We would recommend Wertman Photography to anyone and everyone. Not only is she now our go to photographer but also a great friend.”

— Brooke and Justin Kirchner

_DSC3830“We would like to thank you again for the wonderful photography you did for our 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. You will recall, rather than have a guest book, we had you photograph our guests as a record of their attendance.  It is much nicer to look back at photographs than signatures in a book.  We have given them each a 4×6 print as a remembrance and they all praised your work and you personally.  The black and white photos have been a big hit.

Many folks stated how active and busy you were taking photos but never pushy and they loved your out-going personality. It is amazing how many candid shots you took and we were not even aware but they usually are the most natural pictures and we love looking at them over and over again.

In closing, we feel blessed to have had you as the photographer, thanks to Derrick, and we hope our paths may meet again sometime.  We certainly will give you an excellent reference anytime we can.”

— Genevieve Herbst and Family

The finished product is sophisticated and beautiful. The second project was very personal. I gave her the only existing photo of my parents with myself and my sister. All other photos were destroyed in a house fire. She restored and framed two copies for my parents Christmas gift and they are the most wonderful pictures. I cannot be more pleased and would recommend Monika for any photography, framing or restoration project.”
