Rooted in timeless imagery, authentic emotion, and an artistic sensibility.


At the core of one's artistry lies one's purpose and mission, which sets them apart and fuels their passion for creativity. For me, documenting genuine moments and capturing emotions is the driving force that keeps me humbled and motivated. Above all, I seek to immortalize the profound love between souls destined to find each other in this lifetime. It is this beautiful journey of love and connection that inspires me to create art that resonates with hearts and souls alike. Photography transcends owning a camera in the digital age; it is an art of storytelling, an intimate capture of human emotions, and a timeless preservation of cherished memories and existence. My devotion to this craft is unwavering - I  embark on each artistic endeavor, immersing myself fully in its essence. It has become an intrinsic necessity to honor the beauty of every moment captured.

I began my photographic journey through editorial, classical music, portraiture, and high fashion. These art forms have come together and evolved into a unique style blending timeless romance, editorial luxury, and feminine allure. From a photographer’s perspective, my goal has remained the same - to immortalize the stories and connections of human souls, capturing the essence of emotions in the world that surrounds me Thank you for sharing in the magic of your love story. Warmly, Mouna.

To know Mouna is to love her, and to be photographed by her is to feel loved by her. Anyone who has had the opportunity to be caught on film by Mouna, knows that her calm and gentle manner has a way of bringing a sense of ease to being photographed. Her photos have a way of evoking a felt memory of the moment she captured, and that is what makes her a true visionary.

poetry in the smallest moments

From the moment I met Mouna I could tell not only how much she loved what she does, but also how much she loves the people she gets to work alongside. That completely changes the feel of the day and makes it feel like a friend is there helping tell your story vs a stranger. I can't emphasize how important that is, especially if being in front of a camera isn't your favourite thing in the world. She'll make sure you don't even notice that she's there, and that you're just free to be yourself while she captures all the amazing moments. She truly is a joy to work with as her friendly and sweet personality will make you fall in love with her!

truly a joy  to work with

 Mouna’s kindness and thoughtfulness was present in every interaction we had with her. She took the time to learn our story and style, and was incredibly intentional about capturing the spirit of our love through her photography.. When we received the photos from our wedding day, we could not believe how gorgeous and enchanting they were. She and her team captured the candid, intimate moments as gracefully as the large family portraits. It is clear that Mouna and the people she hires are not only true professionals but also incredibly talented artists. We are so glad we chose her to capture our wedding day and our engagement photos!

Bathed in the golden hues of the Hudson Valley sun, a mesmerizing testament to a bygone era in the quaint, historic town. With its graceful charm and stately Gothic Revival architecture, exuding an aura of timeless elegance that beckons history enthusiasts and wanderers alike.

Heavy doors seem to guard a trove of untold stories and fascinating secrets. Lavish salons adorned with intricate furnishings and ornate artwork transport you back to the days of grandeur and aristocratic gatherings.

Amidst the sunlight filtering through the leaded glass windows, the air carries a hint of nostalgia. Polished wood floors seem to resonate with the echoes of footsteps from centuries past, as hundreds of roses enchant in the gardens outside...

Where does one begin when words truly aren’t enough to convey the artistry that is Mémoires en Or. I have had the honour of knowing Mouna (the beautiful soul behind the camera) both professionally and in friendship over the years. After both working alongside her and modelling for her, what I have learned is this: Mouna is not just an artist but a visionary in the fullest sense of the word. She is a collector of muses, a beholder of all beauty, and a dreamer by nature. Who better than a dreamer to capture your most cherished memories, as they always have a way of finding poetry in the smallest of moments.

When my partner Ayden and I travelled to France, Mouna photographed us on the streets of Paris for an elopement style session. A session that to this day we hold dear to our hearts. It was a beautiful day filled with laughter, connection and creativity, but it’s the photos that speak for themselves - there is not one film in the gallery that doesn’t show how comfortable and beautiful Mouna made us feel.

To know Mouna is to love her, and to be photographed by her is to feel loved by her. Anyone who has had the opportunity to be caught on film by Mouna, knows that her calm and gentle manner has a way of bringing a sense of ease to being photographed. Her photos have a way of evoking a felt memory of the moment she captured, and that is what makes her a true visionary.

My wedding pictures came out amazingly stunning, and I am so glad I am able to relive my day in such a stylish way. She uses a very unique way of working and processing your pictures, very caring and will make your pictures look at if your were a magazine star or celebrity. I recommend her wholeheartedly, you will enjoy working with her and have your pictures captured in such a gentle and elegant way. The result will blow your mind! I am in a cloud still after receiving my gallery, which she delivered promptly. Thank you Mouna for all your efforts, patience and great work.

Working with Mouna for our Engagement Shoot and Wedding day was such a beautiful experience. Not only did our photos turn out beautifully, but Mouna is such a refreshing soul to be around and she really made us feel at ease throughout both days. You can really tell how passionate she is about photography and story telling through her photos and it made the experience that much better. Mouna was always ready with answers to our questions, and she helped us feel less awkward with "posing". She took the time to get to know us and our love story. Our wedding photos helped capture the moments and memories we wish to cherish forever. Mouna, thank you so much for creating magic with us!

Mouna is one of the most inspirational people I've met and her passion for her art is astounding. I'll never forget how special she made me feel, such a warm connection and a genuine kindness. The day I received my wedding gallery, I cried happy tears, as I never imagined I could look so effortlessly beautiful - the manner in which she portrayed my husband and I, in our couples portraits, was truly the epitome of our decade-long love story. Our entire wedding planning experience would never have been the same without her. We will forever cherish our experience and the friendship we've built over the last year and half will be long-lasting. Our experience is unforgettable and we are truly grateful to her for everything. Mouna invests in you more than you'll ever invest in her and theres no truer statement than that. 

It was like having a trusted friend there, photographing your day with intention
