Hmm, where do I start with how amazing these photographers are! Not only are they professional and personable during the actual photoshoot process, but they are amazing leading up to and after the shoot also. I am the most non photogenic person I know and am incredibly nervous and shy whenever a camera is around. I had simply called to ask a question before booking, and Jasmin was SO amazing. We ended up speaking forever, like old freinds catching up so seamlessly. She never made me feel rushed or anything. She was so informative and such a great listener. I could go on forever with how amazing their level of customer service is. At the actual shoot, Ryan was also so incredible. My family was all over the place- like herding cats. He was very patient and always kept his cool. He made everyone feel important and beautiful. He had amazing ideas for photos and poses, and helped people get into a great position, fixed their hair,etc. Again, I could go on and on. Ryan and Jasmin are such genuine and talented people. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Cannot go wrong with these two!
Working with Jasmin and Ryan was a pleasure from start to finish! All of my initial correspondence was with Jasmin, and she was always friendly and prompt in her emails. I asked for her advice for a shooting location and she gave me multiple ideas for different places that fit what we were looking for. We met Ryan at the Omni on the day of our shoot. He was also friendly and really easy going. He took his time and was willing to keep taking photos as long as we wanted (however, our children had other plans!). The combination of great people and great photos is what I liked most about working with Jasmin and Ryan. Additionally, we have professional photos taken every year, and we have never worked with a photographer that has given us an entire gallery of fully edited images to keep. It is so nice to have all your photos, and not be forced to choose just one or two. If we are ever in Palm Springs in the future, we would love to work with Jasmin and Ryan again! (Ashley Shelley)
We travelled all the way from Australia to have our elopement at the La Quinta Resort and Spa. While researching for photographers we came across the Monocle Project's website and instantly fell in love with their style of photography. Plus all of their reviews were so complimentary! We knew straight away that we wanted Ryan and Jasmin to be the ones to capture our special day. From start to finish their communication was fabulous. Jasmin was able to answer all our questions and made us feel at ease, especially since we were planning our big day from across the globe! Jasmin took the time to answer every email with care and patience and was able to offer us expert advice on locations, timeline of photos etc. When the day finally arrived we had Ryan capture all our special moments. He was so much fun and made us feel very comfortable! It was like hanging out with an old friend and it made the whole experience very memorable rather than just another process of the day. Ryan went above and beyond to make sure our photos would be something really special. He even climbed some pretty scary heights to make sure we got some amazing shots! Ryan kindly went home that night and worked on providing us with a few sneak peek high quality photos to share with our family back home! When we received our final gallery of photos we were completely blown away with how amazing they were. Ryan really captured our personalities and the photos looked natural and non posed which is what we really wanted. The colours were amazing and it looked like our photos belonged in a magazine! We received so many compliments from family and friends back home on how brilliant the photos looked. We cannot recommend the Monocle Project enough and any couple, family, business that has the pleasure of working with Ryan and Jasmin will be truly happy with their service. These guys are not only true professionals but really warm and beautiful people! We hope to cross paths again in the future when we travel back to La Quinta. Thank you Jasmin and Ryan xo
Ryan and Jasmin are a wonderful, talented and professional photography team that any couple getting married would be very fortunate to have shoot their wedding. As the venue manager at Spencer’s Restaurant in Palm Springs, I have had the privilege of working alongside Ryan for a wedding on April 1st of this year, as well as a wedding last year. I have seen first-hand the care taken to capture each moment and setting whether posed or candid, with a subtle assertiveness that does not overwhelm the couple, and family and friends alike. The end result; timeless treasures that display the beauty of an outdoor desert wedding, the love and commitment shared between two people and the family and friends that support them, and countless moments that will always be remembered and reflected on for years to come.
Beautiful. Amazing. So great!!!! We are so happy. Friends that have seen some were soooooo excited. I actually made a little collage for my phone of B. I love it sooooooo much. I'm going to have a better look on my computer tomorrow and take it all in better than phone.
Thanks again. What a wonderful experience.
Can't wait for next year!
We recently had the pleasure of working with Jasmine and Ryan for our Trash Your Wedding Dress photo shoot. 16 years ago my husband and I took very stiff wedding pictures, since that time I had always wanted more causal and fun photos (better suited for our personalities). So, we decided that we wanted to take “trash your wedding dress”/"redo of wedding photo’s” with fun friends. Jasmine and Ryan were perfect for out shoot! They listened to all of our ideas and offered their own expertise to make the shoot perfect. The photos we got back were amazing - perfection. Jasmine and Ryan were professionals from start to finish. I would highly recommend their services!!!
Jasmin and Ryan from the Monocle Project are the best! They are so nice and are both amazing photographers! They went above and beyond for us and our wedding photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined. They made us feel so comfortable that even my husband had a great time during the pre-wedding photo shoot (and he hates getting his photo taken). I would 100% recommend them to anyone having their photo taken for a special occasion. Thank you, Jasmin and Ryan, for the beautiful photos! I am forever grateful!

"We have always admired the great quality of work produced by Monocle Project and they were first to come to mind when it was our turn to tie the knot! Working with Ryan and Jasmin is the complete experience. They entirely surpassed our expectations and made us feel comfortable and at ease. We were so happy they include an engagement session in their packages because it allowed us to get comfortable in front of cameras and we gained astonishing images to display at our wedding reception. Ryan and Jasmin definitely have a skill that goes beyond epic photography; they have a love for people and an eye for the best moments that are unsurpassed."
"I can’t stop looking at all my engagement photos, honestly, when I received my engagement gallery, I cried! Thank you both for capturing such a great joy in this new chapter of my life, and thank you for the amazing engagement photos!!"
"Ryan and Jasmin, I am so grateful for my amazing engagement photos! I couldn’t be happier with them and I cant say thank you enough for all your dedication and passion for people and photography. I am beyond excited to see the full collection!"
"I had my portraits taken with them;. they had all the set up and included some interesting props to make it more fun! The couple is both friendly, professional and fun! They made that photo session fun and wanting me to go back. They allowed me to be creative in my poses and gave me some helpful tips. They are so great at explaining the process of their editing and showing me how the photo will turn out. I follow both of them on Instagram and Facebook and all of their photos are vivid in color and quality. I definitely recommend them to capture anyone’s most cherished memories. Great job Monocle Project Team!"
"Monocle Project is amazing! They listen and capture the moment perfectly in an image! I’m never going anywhere else for my photography needs. This team utilizes their creativity and share the love of the priceless gifts a real great photo brings to a lifetime ! Video as well!"
"Ryan & Jasmin…two of the best photographers in California. Thank you so much for making my daughters pictures come alive through your cameras…I rate both of you 100+ stars!! Excellent work and very fun young couple. I recommend everyone to use Monocle Project!!"
"What I liked about working with Monocle Project (Jasmin and Ryan) was how easy it was to take all of the shots and that they both take photos separate and together. It was fun and our photos turned out better than we could have hoped for! Highly recommend them to take any photos you may need done!!"
