ABOUT MONIQUE DYKSTRA


I started Studio Iris Photography in 1994, a photo studio in Montreal that specializes in weddings, portraits and corporate events. 

My studio is located in Notre-Dame-De-Grace, 10 minutes from downtown. For more info about my photography, call me at (514) 208-4747 or drop by the studio for a visit.  I'd love to hear from you!

WEDDINGS

If you hire me to be your wedding photographer, I will use my camera to show you how beautiful you are.  You will see your dignity and grace, as I do.


If you hire me as your photographer, I will use my camera to create photographs of your wedding that will become an essential part of your life. Photos that you and your family will look at over and over and over again. 


If you hire me as your wedding photographer, I will use my camera to tell the story of your wedding, and all the emotions of the day: Your mother crying when she first sees you in your wedding dress. The incredulous look on his face when he sees you walking down the aisle. Your face shining with love as you gaze at your beloved. 


Your wedding will be over in an instant, but you will remember this day forever through your photographs.
 

If you hire me to be your photographer, I promise to capture the story of your wedding, and create beautiful photographs that you and your family will treasure for generations.

MONTREAL GAZETTE


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