About Monika Wertman, Head Photographer & Owner of Wertman Photography

about page photo larger

I have been in love with photography for as long as I can remember which eventually lead me to open my own studio and sharing that love with my clients. Weddings and special events are among my favorite things to capture, as well as children and High School Seniors. The interaction with my clients during these sessions and events is one of the most rewarding and fun aspects of my work.

My first love was and still is black and white imagery. I started my career with black and white film and still love the drama I can create in that medium and as a result my clients will always see some of their images in that format.

I love a challenge! Sharing my passion with my clients and converting that person who does not like having her picture taken into the client who recommends me to all of her friends because we had a fun session and I made her fall in love with the camera, is one of the best feelings in the world.

Monika holds a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree from Frostburg State University and is currently working toward her Masters of Fine Art in Photography.

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

_DSC0208color“Monika did a photo shoot of me for a picture to give my husband for Christmas. She is creative, energetic, talented, and very professional. Her end product is not just a photograph, it is a work of art! I was able to give my husband a gift that he is absolutely thrilled with! In that same session, she took several photos that I will be able to use as my business photo. I have been looking for someone to photograph my Interior Design projects. Now I know it will be Monika Wertman. I highly recommend Monika for any & all of your photography needs.”

angel-restoration-restored“Monika has done two projects for me. The first was a frame and matting of a large print and I allowed her to use her discretion. 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.”
