Amanda and I are incredibly honored by the support from our community. For the fourth year, our community has named us Elegant Island Living Magazine’s “Best of the Golden Isles” Best Wedding Photographer and our first Best Family Photographer for 2016! We are so excited for these honors and the love we’ve felt from the Golden Isles.
Jessica and Michael enjoyed a small wedding with their parents on Jekyll Island amongst the ancient oaks and Spanish Moss at the Chichota Ruins. Afterward we toured the island’s beautiful spaces for portraits, ending on Driftwood Beach.
Congrats Jessica and Michael!

We had a wonderful winter wedding day with Josie and Max. They were such a sweet, fun couple to work with. Our time with them began at a family member’s farmhouse, getting ready and capturing those special details and last moments before whisking away to the ceremony at a beautiful Catholic church in Downtown Brunswick. After the ceremony, we returned to the family farm and had portraits in the gardens, followed by a great reception with a live band and lots of dancing!
Josie and Max, we had so much fun with you! Thank you for sharing your amazing day with us!

Congratulations Jaime and Elizabeth!
We just finished our last wedding of the year on Jekyll Island with Jaime and Elizabeth. I’ve always wished that I could get this angle, but of course, I can’t go swimming in a suit to get the photo. :)
Enter the most recent addition to the Chris Moncus Photography arsenal: The DJI Mavic Pro drone. It fits inside my camera bag and is easily deployable for those elusive angles I can’t get otherwise. 45 seconds to set this up and get it in the air means it doesn’t slow us down. It shoots DNG RAW photos giving us the precision editing capabilities we prefer to make amazing images.
We can’t wait to use this at your wedding! If you’re recently engaged or are getting engaged tonight, give us a shout!
