I would definitely recommend the Monocle Project to anyone. Things I really appreciated:
-Jasmin's help scheduling and booking the session (and sticking with me even when I dropped off communication for a bit while planning, even though she was great and so professional the whole time).
-Super easy and straight-forward contract signing and payment options.
-Willingness to meet us in Joshua Tree (even with the shutdown). Met on time at the entrance and even brought walkie talkies so we could communicate once the cell service gave out.
-Ryan's (photographer) demeanor and personality was so fun -- and kind of pulled us out of our shells throughout the photo session. We all loved him!
-The photos are beautiful. Really awesome quality -- and delivered within the time range promised. Everyone in my family loves them.
-Complete access to our prints to download and use as we see fit -- or order through them.
Thanks to Monocle Project for helping us get some updated family photos. I love them! I gave the photo as a session to my parents for Christmas and it was such a hit. Really recommend this idea to anyone.

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!
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
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!
"Best family photos ever!!! MP is a very talented company. They are amazing to work with!!! I will definitely have them take photos of us again!!!!"
"Great work you two!!! Our collection looks awesome and epic! We really appreciate how you two took charge but also made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera."
"Looking forward to seeing the finished product. I have to say you guys are amazing and so committed to your projects. The fact that you were climbing trees and buildings just to get that great shot is amazing. Love you guys!"
"I am ecstatic about this photography team! They are each very talented photographers, you will never find a better husband and wife team!"
"Thank you!! I appreciate the joy, kindness and pride that the Monocle Project team takes in their work. They capture the inner beauty of others and have a wonderful sense of detail, creativity, and style. Excellent team-work, artistry & keen eye! Photographic excellence and high quality craftsmanship through a modern perspective. Team Ryan & Jasmin of “Monocle Project” are a testament for optimal performance presentation and client satisfaction via lens! "
