Monika Wertman


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

I have been interested in video production and how it worked from a young age!

While some people bought DVDs for the movie, I bought DVDs specifically for the hours of behind-the-scenes footage.

Choosing a career in a creative field was the logical step to take after graduating high school. I enjoy collaborating with clients on a vast array of creative projects, completing video productions fitting all budgets, timelines, and project goals.

Every client has a vision and a story to tell, let’s make that vision come to life!


Nikki holds a Bachelors Degree in Media Arts and Animation from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.


Maya Grace, Office and Production Assistant

The most authentic thing you can be is yourself and that is what I strive to do every day.

I have a passion for styling and design and a love for taking photos, capturing interesting content and testing my creative abilities.

I help with lighting photoshoots and I also create reels for the social media page that capture the behind the scenes of the sessions.

Being able to witness people express themselves through art is such a beautiful thing and I’m so excited to be a part of something so special.

Grace is a Class of 2022 High School Graduate and is attending HCC to major in graphic design.

“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.”
