I had no idea what to expcect with our engagement shoot.  In fact, I was a little bit nervous.  Turns out there was no need to be.  From the moment she arrived, Rosemary made us feel calm, relaxed and comfortable.  It’s clear to see from our photos how much fun we had.  I can’t wait to see how our wedding photos turn out! -Stephanie B & Adam K

I consider myself lucky to have met you – now I have a “go to” photographer for all of life’s events! I love my professional photographs that you took awhile ago, and am completely in love with our more recent engagement and wedding photos. You are a lot of fun to work with, and have a knack for making people feel comfortable in front of the camera. Thanks for everything!
-Janet G

When you get so caught up in the mundane details of daily routine it’s easy to momentarily forget what really matters. Your amazing photos reminded me just how much I love my family. You have a real gift for capturing special moments.
-Daniel I

Our experience with you last fall for Lou’s senior photo was wonderful. It was really a fun and special day, the closest thing to a photo shoot that I’ve ever been to! It was relaxed, and casual, and I didn’t feel that you were in a hurry to get the job done. You really listened to my daughter and captured the photos she wanted. Thank you so much Rosemary… family photo soon.
-Jean K.

Dear Rosemary,
I want to thank you for a fantastic day at the beach and super great photo shoot! You are a master at composition, color, lighting, and at capturing the essence of our personalities. We LOVE the family portraits you took and will definitely hire you again! Thanks so much!
-Susan F

Oh the pictures are wonderful. I am so thrilled, I could just watch the slide show all day. Its nice to see the day from a another view and you captured some really good memories. Thank you so much for all your hard work on capturing our special day.
-Jen S

The pictures are just beautiful. I’ve watched the slideshow 3 times now and have cried each time! They turned out wonderful, I can’t thank you enough! –Kristina H

You made our wedding beautiful!

The Slideshow is gorgeous. It made me cry. You are so good; the music worked beautifully.
-Matthew K

Your photographs captured the essence of the wedding. We have watched the slideshow, set to the couple’s favorite music, over and over again and each time, the emotion of the day is relived. Goosebumps and tears…amazing!
We are thrilled with your work! Thank you.

Rosemary’s photography is simply amazing — her ability to capture wedding memories — from the staged, must-have-shots to the “gosh, did that really happen?” intimate shots — shows a sense of preparation and timing that the happy couple will enjoy always. Also, her passion for connections: Following a family from wedding to pregnancy to baby and beyond is something every young family should consider.

I’ve know Rosemary for years. I’ve referred her to do weddings of close friends and personal pictures of business associates. Everyone raves about Rosemary’s personality as well as her professional talents. How could you not want to be associated with someone who makes your friends and business partners that happy? Rosemary is the perfect example of what makes networking with good people a success, and makes her the perfect person to be aligned with.
-Brian E

Our family has been very pleased with all of the pictures Rosemary has taken. She has been very flexible and helpful in working with us on creative direction, locations, and final picks. The results have been great and we look forward to working with her many more times in the future.
-Wayne & Joanne

Rosemary has done photos for me and my family and has always been a pleasure to work with. She has always gone above and beyond our expectations and we now have a wonderful set of family photos that we can share forever. I would highly recommend Rosemary to anyone looking for a photographer that goes above and beyond for her clients.
-Mike

We asked Rosemary to photograph our “non-traditional” wedding ceremony….and she captured great moments that will help us remember our special day for the rest of our lives. Creative eye….easy to work with….top notch all around. We love the slideshow of her favorite shots she put together on her website with some music from our wedding.
-Shelly & Wendy

Rosemary Rocks! Such lovely photo’s and a pleasure to work with. Since a picture speaks a thousand words…check out her website to answer any of your questions. Getting married and want photos? Call Rosemary.
-Marywynn R

That pretty much sums it up. My partner and I hired her to take photos for our online business, and we’ve been more than happy with the results. Rosemary inspires every kind of pose — from silly to sleek. And the finished product? To buy for. Music to this eBay Powerseller’s ears! Who knew commercial photography could be this fun?
-RC

Rosemary Ragusa Photography is fantastic! It is really wonderful working with them. The product is great and Rosemary is really great with kids. I will keep coming back for all my Photography needs.
-Megan G

My partner and I called Rosemary to have some photographs taken, and they were absolutely fantastic – far beyond our expectations! I have a thing against the boring, posed mall-type portraits, and these were exactly the opposite – fresh, full of life and energy, and she really captured who we are. And, she’s a dream to work with – very funny and down-to-earth. I’d recommend Mon Amour Photography to anyone!
-Jim H

We sure loved working with you for our Sauvie Island photo shoot! You have been the only photographer to get our 4 year old son to cooperate! You just had the perfect “zen” like quality that kept both kids relaxed and cheerful. Though we’ve had good experiences with other studios, this is the first time we truly had a hard time choosing between the photos because they were all so great! Thank you so much for capturing the sweet toddler and preschool stages for our family that no one else was able to capture the same way. We will truly treasure these images forever and highly recommend you to other families!
-Jeanine B

Katy and I were really moved by your slide show and photos. Not only were your pictures beautiful, but for one of the first times during this wedding planning process, it felt like we were looking into a mirror. We were seeing what’s possible on our wedding day. We looked at your photos, and we saw ourselves, our communities, and our families. And incredibly, that’s it. We just saw love.
Thank you for giving that to us. :)

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for meeting me, Mary, and our little rascal wiener dogs, Wrigley & K.C. in Laurelhurst Park for our Fall picture session. The setting that you recommended was an excellent choice and we had such a fun time working with you. We loved the way you interacted with both Wrigley & K.C. while trying to get their attention for the numerous photo opportunities. Because we consider our pets to be a part of our family it’s very important to us that they are treated as such. We feel you went above and beyond expectations! Both Mary & I felt comfortable and at ease with you from the start and appreciated your playful interjections while still providing a very professional service. The pictures turned out fabulously and, as you know, made it quite difficult for us to narrow our choices down to those pictures that might be considered the “best of the bunch”. We are thankful for your input where our choices were concerned too…you really made the whole process so much easier. Mary & I will definitely look to you again in the future for additional photo shoots….and who knows? Maybe we’ll have a third wiener dog to add to the mix. Thank you so much for everything. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends.
-Chops, Mary, Wrigley, & K.C.
