ABOUT MONIQUE DYKSTRA

Hello! My name is Monique Dykstra. 

I am a professional photographer from Montreal, Canada. I’ve published a few books. I also do weddings, portraits and have many corporate clients (scroll down). I opened Studio Iris Photography in 1994.

My work has been called "stunning," (Globe and Mail), "breathtaking," (Ottawa Citizen), "lustrous," (Canadian Geographic) and "superb" (MRB).   

Wedding Bells once said - very kindly - that I was “One of Canada’s 25 most inspiring wedding photographers.”

Aside from photography, I’m obsessed with baking bread, Arctic explorers, beekeeping and my kids. My current hero is Pele, the soccer legend, and my daily mantra is “Count your blessings.”


To see if I am available for your wedding, or for other photo needs, please call (514) 208-4747.

MONTREAL GAZETTE


A few years back, I did a weekly column in the Montreal Gazette. The column was called Monique Dykstra's Montreal, and featured everyone from belly-dancers to gravestone salesmen, from sailors to cloistered nuns.
