A LITTLE OF WHAT PEOPLE AE SAYING ABOUT US.
I contacted Monocle Project last minute on a Friday for a surprise maternity shoot during a baby moon getaway to Palm Springs with my wife. With little notice and a busy schedule, Jasmin was generous enough to squeeze us in for a Sunday sunrise shoot at a location in Palm Springs. We didn't know what to expect but Jasmin was fantastic. She gave us enough direction to get the shots she wanted while giving us the freedom to be ourselves and enjoy the shoot. The photos were edited and delivered to us in just over a week!! She captured so many great moments and provided us with way more maternity shots than we expected. I would highly recommend Monocle project for any shoot. My wife was thrilled with the results. Thank you Monocle Project
From my very first email with Jasmin I knew she was the right photographer for us. Jasmin made us feel so comfortable and gave us the space to be silly, kiss our hearts out and laugh until our cheeks hurt. I received the pictures back in two weeks and they are beyond what I could have ever imagined. Jasmin captured our love, personalities and excitement for being together and I honestly can't stop looking at the pictures, showing them to friends and now working on putting together a wedding album! I am forever grateful that I found the Monocle Project, we now have pictures of our love that will last forever!
Firstly, thank you for sending our wedding pictures to us so fast - it was such a beautiful surprise to receive them when we were still on our honeymoon. You captured the joy and magic of our beautiful weekend. We are having fun building our album together.
Secondly, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being you! You were so easy to work with. Chris and I, and our guests, were not even aware we were being photographed which captured such beautiful emotions. We were definitely blessed to have found you guys.
We went to Palm Springs for a family vacation and decided to do photos since we are rarely all together. Ryan came and did an absolutely amazing job! We had my parents, 4 couples, and 2 babies and somehow he got all the combinations we wanted. He was efficient and so easy to work with. We will probably fly him to our next vacation spot for more pictures!
I had the pleasure of working with Ryan and Jasmine with the Monocle Project for photos to be included on my new web page. We had one hour to work some magic and Ryan did! I'm thrilled with the quality of the photos and the creative thinking Ryan incorporated into the photo shoot. Just what I needed to give me web site a top notch professional feel. I highly recommend the Monocle Project!
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 friends 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. He made everyone feel important and beautiful. He had amazing ideas for photos and poses, and helped people get into a great position, HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Cannot go wrong with these two... (Read more)
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 & I asked for her advice for a location and she gave me multiple ideas for different places that fit what we were looking for. Ryan 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... (Read more)
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! Ryan 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...

These. Are. Amazing!
One of my favorite Christmas Gifts.
Thank you so much for being so patient with our kids and getting some beautiful shots.
You two are THE BEST!
Our mini portrait session with Monocle Project was an amazing experience! The setting you chose was beautiful and the mini session (20-30 minutes of shooting time) was ideal - with our 3 young kids, anything over 30 minutes and the kiddos are running wild! This was an ideal set-up for our family! This is our 4th family portrait session with Monocle Project, and as always, Jasmin and Ryan, you both are so professional, personal and right on target! Thank you for bringing out the best sides of our family and for capturing those moments perfectly!
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!

Team Ryan & Jasmin of “Monocle Project” are a testament for optimal performance presentation and client satisfaction via lens!
"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 are 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. (Baby showers, weddings, engagements, portraits, house warming parties, birthdays, etc.) 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!!"
"Jasmin is a wonderful person to work with. She communicates very well so everything is clear from the start. Jasmin has a very creative eye and new ideas that are awesome!"
"My expeirience with Monocle Project was amazing! They were very good at making me feel comfortable and confident! Jasmin even had suggestions on what to wear and always stayed in communication with me. From the very beginning they made sure to pay attention to the details! I love their eye and her passion to deliver photos that will last a lifetime."
