Erika Tel

"So I’m going to just say this.. I never really like pictures of myself. I’m very self conscious about certain parts and it’s hard to get passed a selfie.. this photo shoot proved me wrong. I may not be perfect, but this showed me that I can still be beautiful in my own way. This is me.. this is 55.. this is 2020.. A big thank you to Monica Hahn Photography and Monica Hahn) for helping me cross this off my bucket list and for making me feel amazing.. I have no words."


Jen Lahman

"Thanks it was so much more fun in the end than I had anticipated! You really are great at making people feel comfortable doing something that feels awkward at first. I was so excited to tell my friend about all of it. I wanted to walk away feeling like I looked like an adult. I always look much younger than people expect and I felt like you captured me as an adult. Plus feeling pretty in a way I usually don’t was an unexpected surprise. Thanks a million!!"


Kimberly Gatto

"What an amazing day she (kristina) had with Monica Hahn Photography - the experience itself was transformative, not only in photos, but inner confidence, too. Such a wonderful time in her life, to capture these photos! Thank you Monica!!!"


Kimberly Kern - Birthday Gift

"I had the best birthday present this year from my husband Jason Kern. ❤❤I've always wanted to be pampered like a model for a day and my wishes came true with an unbelievable photographer Monica Djeu Hahn and talented makeup artist Madelyn Jelinski. Thank you ladies! I will treasure the experience and photos forever"


Caroline Heinle, Model & Actress

"Working with Monica and her team was truly a magical experience. I am a professional actor and commercial model and have shot with a lot of photographers over the years, but this day definitely takes the cake. From start to finish Monica was warm, welcoming, friendly and INSPIRED! The pieces she created for me to wear were absolutely stunning and so creative!! -Combined with Hair and Make-Up by the lovely and talented Cristine Tozser -- It created a magical masterpiece which had me feeling like a real-life princess! Sometimes shoots can be overwhelming, but a good photographer assists in creating a relaxing, friendly and safe environment so that you can let loose, be yourself and bring your best work. THAT is where the magic happens and what produces stunning photos. And THAT is exactly what Monica does. I feel very privileged to have worked with her and hope to collaborate with her again in the very near future. I cannot recommend her enough! As a beautifully, talented photographer and stunning human being :) Thank you for everything Monica Hahn Photography!

Oh and PS- Since I've been posting my photos on my Instagram and Facebook Pages, it's attracted a lot of attention and even had a new agency reach out to me! Again, thank you, thank you, thank you, Monica!!!"



"I had a great time today, you have a great way with people...All going to plan there will also be the rest of the leadership team from the company to photograph over the next few months. Many thanks"


Arabhis, Multi Dimensional Womban T. V

"Monica is such a kind soul who knows how to bring out the most authentic beauty in any woman, she taught me how to emphasize my curves and brought out the beauty in my smile and eyes. I feel more like myself now! Love the overall experience from the moment I walked in until I left.😇 BOOK HER NOW!"


Bienna Ursula, Good Light Magazine

"I have collaborated with Monica for a magazine article (and photos) for a magazine I produce and I can only sincerely say that the team and I agreed that it was the most meaningful issue we have produced because of Monica's work ethic, dedication, and the heart she put into the people and work she does. I love her work! I promise you'll love working with her and the photos she creates!"


Izzy Itu

"I had such an amazing time with Monica and team shooting for my post-breakup recovery, I would love to do this again! Everyone loves my pictures and I would highly recommend to all my friends and family! Totally flexible to whatever Monica recommends!"


Hannah Yun, CEO Manex

"Thank you for the educational and productive session today! Our intro meeting definitely helped to clearly define the areas that were missing, such as knowing your audience, and propelled us into a focused brand and marketing strategy foundation.

I’m extremely excited to be diving in and learning about this area of business, and am glad that Madi and I were able to connect with you. As discussed, I will be creating company profile documents and will start by writing everything I know about them. From there, Madi and I will review to find any patterns between people across different companies and regions. Madi will also be finalizing our style guide based on the new orange logo. We hope to bring you some solid findings for our next session and that these facts will take us to the next step. We’re looking forward to developing our brand and we’re ready for the action!"


Dawn Sanders, Luxury Skincare Brand: @JustAskDawn

"Where do I begin????? I will tell you that I can easily say I found Monica through IG but I truly believe after how we connected instantly… that the universe lead us to each other.

After our first phone call, I was so at ease and excited, even CONFIDENT about our shoot. I am not a model, or actress …. I have a business @justaskdawn where I work with high end luxury brands in health, beauty, and wellness. After the run through of questions, visions for the shoot, and connecting …. The initial phone call segued into life events that helped with my evolution of growth within my career, that by the time our shoot date arrived I had transformed internally . I stress the word “internal” , as the gifted photographer Monica is, and the powerhouse she is behind the lens , transcends into the visionary that draws out the layers , and confidently with exuberance , captures that moment!! 💕.

My first shoot with Monica , had me amazed that I got teary eyed, where the lens captured moments, peaks within myself, all of my internal self work , that radiated in photographs. Monica is a true gem that will hold your hand from start to finish, with a passion for her craft, and a true visionary , that just “gets it” ,gets her clients journey , gets the emotions , and synergistically combines all where the stills are the end result of the vision of this amazing powerhouse photographer. Do not think twice of booking. I already booked my second shoot by the time we said goodbye after our first long day of shooting . I feel so fortunate to have this person capture my journey and to continue to capture more memories as that is what I feel pictures are for . Capturing moments that stay with us forever 💕💕💕"


Dr. Aileen Herlinda

"Monica is hands down the best! I was avoiding pictures and then I was looking for Groupons. But Monica is worth EVERY penny. In fact, I don't think I can go anywhere else that would even compete. She made me feel so comfortable in a genuine way. Not in a fake photographer way.. she was authentic and inviting like I had known her for years.

She's professional & down to earth.

I had my hair and makeup done. I'll be going back just for the experience of feeling great and a little glam for my next night out :)

Now the actual photos... They came out great! Even without contouring they look flattering. I was a little skeptical about some poses but it's clear she's the expert-they came out great! I had difficulty narrowing down my purchases. I won't be going anywhere else for photos."


Tricia Majors

"Wow!!! There aren't enough words to convey how appreciative I am of what Monica did for me! As a former TV news anchor, I've had plenty of pictures taken over the years, but nothing has compared to the fantastic photos that Monica took.

I opted for the full-on branding shoot to prepare for the launch of my digital course and I'm so happy I did! From our very first phone call, it was clear she "got me." She helped me prepare for the shoot, select outfits and clarify my brand. Even BEFORE the pics were taken I was way ahead of where I had started!! I could tell by the whole experience that the pictures would be better than anything I had ever taken -- and was I ever right!? I just completed the viewing of the photos and I still only narrowed it down to like 150 that I love!? Oh my gosh... I'm in shock!"



Hilda Puno

"Monica is an awesome professional photographer. Her posing techniques is very meticulous and she directs the entire time down to your fingertips and toes. Fatima the hair and make up artist knew exactly how to do it for her lighting and she didn't do too much so it looks timeless. I had so much fun working with her. I would definitely work with her again for future photo shoots. Thank you Monica"


Nicole E. Waite

"Monica was amazing! The best part is she walks you through the process!! As someone who is not picture savy or knows what looks the best; she walks you through the poses, explains them, and also makes it fun. It was hard to stay serious sometimes because she also made me laugh LOL. Overall it was a great experience. Monica is so gifted she understands the lighting, the angles, and the experience. Operationally, it was exceptional. Monica walks you through step by step the process of getting started, prepping for the pictures, and even afterwards the process to choosing the pictures. I had a great experience and even better photos."


James Azevedo

"Monica Hahn Photography (AKA: Inside The Style Studio) made my sons first foray into modeling an amazing experience. From the outset, Monica was in constant communication with us. She even spent about an hour with me at the initial consultation. I was so comfortable with her I knew she was going to be our photographer. Super knowelegable, friendly, and supportive. She helped with style, suggested apparel and hair., helped with poses and picked some amazing locations for the shoot. And the images, WOW!!. Outstanding photos! We're putting together the LookBook and Comp Cards and even have our first test shoot. Jake's super excited and we couldn't be happeri. Highly recommended. Thanks Monica YTB!"


Hannah Yun

"Monica was personable, prompt, and professional from our first contact. Our brand strategy meeting was not only productive, but educational as she guided us through the basics of branding and offered knowledge from her diverse experience. We are excited to continue working with her to build a solid brand!"


Isla Ghali

"I had such an amazing experience working with Monica, she is very friendly, professional and can make anyone feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera! As well as having great photos for the end result, she also has an incredibly wide range of clothing in her wardrobe and there will always be something for every style and mood you want to be photographed in!"


Janelle Freiman

"Upon entering the photo studio, I was treated with such honor and celebration. The photo shoot at Inside the Studio brought out my joy of me. She said, “ we are not going to recreate an old version of you. Rather we are going to celebrate the you that you are today”. I cried on the spot. Monica is a consummate professional. Artistically exceptional. Her heart is even greater than that. I modeled when I was young. “This” was my happiest and greatest experience ever! I love the photos!"


Megan Cunningham

"Monica is an outstanding photographer! She tool gorgeous photos of my daughter, she was professional, creative and supportive to her, very mentorlike! I would absolutely recommend her for any future photography needs, be it for a model portfolio, work headshot and family photos! I can't wait for us to work with her again in the future!"


Catherine Saulino

"Monica took absolutely stunning photos of my young adult twins. The photos were exactly what I had hoped for after seeing her gorgeous portfolio of previous clients. These are not photos I could have ever taken myself, so we are truly thrilled. The hardest part was selecting from a large number of spectacular images!"


Omid Afshi

"I contacted Monica a while back and requested a class for our product imaging needs. She spent 20 minutes on the phone with me and explained how I could do better and what type of camera and lens I would need to achieve our goal.

I was so impressed with Monica’s knowledge and ended up signing up for a private session with her. Monica is full of positive energy and extensive knowledge of photography that I need more than a few sessions to soak up all the GREAT knowledge and techniques. Monica’s’ studio was sparkling, beautiful with stunning background of La Costa Golf Resort.

I highly suggest her photography studio anyone in greater San Diego. Great Company ran by an amazing owner."


Kaytea Legg

"I was paired with Monica for an internship coming out of college. She has been the best mentor! Years later I still reach out to Monica for help and she is always there for me. Working with Monica gave me the confidence I needed to begin my own journey in photography. If I think about how I run my business today, a lot of the tools I use have come from what I have learned from Monica."


Sammy Chamait, NEOMorph corporate headshots

"Monica is amazing! Our team had a blast with Monica during our photoshoot. We really loved her energy and professionalism. She made everyone feel at ease and comfortable. She will be back for additional company events. Highly recommend Monica for any life event that should be photographed."


Ellie Masiello

"Had a photo session for my 96 year old sister and it was just wonderful! Monica is so kind and welcoming. She was very accommodating and patient. My sister felt like a high fashion model and was over the moon with the experience. I highly recommend Monica and her makeup/ stylist team. They were just wonderful. Monica worked with clothing items we brought and provided some exciting alternatives as well. The staging was varied and provided great backdrops to the different costumes. The session was very professional and I can't wait for the reveal session!"


Pricilla Gandel

"Monica these pics are great!  Ava (my daughter) looked at them and said the nicest thing ever:  "I hope I look like you when I'm old."  I really loved working with you.  Thank you.


Rhea Villanti

"I am blown away by what you did.  I can't thank you enough...He LOVED them. He is so excited.  Every woman should do this - I got an even better reaction than I thought."


Angelie Ferrante

"Thank you Monica for one of the most wonderful experiences Casey has had. Your work is absolutely beautiful. One of the best decisions I've made. Love love love!..... {this} Was such a great experience! So happy we did it and your work is beautiful!!! "


Lorainne Maita

"I hate being photographed and I needed a new headshot and other photos to express who I am as a professional, as a person and as a woman. Although I was nervous, the whole experience was a blast! Having your hair and makeup done, playing dress up and having Monica help you laugh, dance, pose and relax while taking pictures was fun and exhilarating. When I saw the pictures, I actually choked up. They were beautiful and captured every mood. I now have a collection that is multipurpose a well as timeless memories of what it felt like to be a model for a day. I loved the experience and outcome. Monica and her team are fantastic. If you are thinking about a photoshoot - just do it.!!! "


Madi Moore

"Monica is professional, amicable, and clearly knows what she's talking about. She had good insight and was able to identify key-necessities in branding and business pursuits.!!! "


Edya Martula

"Monica - many thanks to you and your team!! Maya cannot stop talking about how fabulous you are and how much she enjoyed and loved every minute of it.  And to be honest, Jiselle and I said the same thing :) We cannot wait to see the pictures! Thank you for such a fun day for the girls! We appreciate your professionalism, and what an amazing sense of style you and your team have!! I am impressed with your work beyond words. Thank u!!!"


Denise & Amanda

"I can't begin to find the words to describe what an amazing experience we had during our photo shoot. You are full of energy, creativity and are a genuine professional in every aspect of the word. As many wonderful things as Mitch had to say about you, they paled in comparison to meeting you.  Amanda and I felt at ease the minute we met you. You encouraged us to have fun and relax; which is exactly what we did. We had a blast! ...From the bottom of our hearts we sincerely thank you for a mother/daughter experience & beauty transformation we will never forget! "


Kerry DiGiovanni, TV Actress & Model

"Though I have had many photographers in the past, I have never had such an amazing shoot, as I had with Monica. We were shooting all snowy day, and loving every minute of it. The artistic chemistry flooded the studio and we created beautiful pictures because of it. Her studio has a warm and comfortable atmosphere, which is very important to me. Shoots can be intimidating, and atmosphere can set the mood for all your photos. I am more then pleased with my photos, they are elegant and pieces of timeless artistic beauty. I would highly recommend Monica, and would love to work with her in the future."

Michael Lozana

"Thank you so much Monica! You’re an amazing person your positive energy is contagious and you bring out the best in everyone. I knew Carmen would have an amazing time with you and she did & so did I. Thanks for making my dream a reality."


Cheryl Barbagallo

"Ladies, if you are at a crossroad in your life or trying to discover the “new you “or feel the flame inside you that wants to ignite, here is the place to begin your new journey! And yes, it is a journey! I laughed, I smiled, I giggled, and I even cried. Monica did all this in one photo session. She is amazing! Because of her I feel a new sense of discovery and am ready for my new journey in life! Yes, this photo shoot affected me this way. It was so powerful I can’t even explain or express the gratitude I have for Monica and this session. She has helped shed the old me and now I am on my way to becoming the person I want to be. Just think…. all this from one amazing photoshoot. It was a fascinating experience."


Danee Freida

"I just wanted to take the time to express my utmost gratitude for you taking the time to help me out with my head shots... I can't tell you how amazing the whole experience was, and how grateful I am that you were able to do this on such short notice!!! The shots came out amazing and my Facebook and Instagram have blown up for the past two days with everyone raving about how awesome the shots were! A friend of mine actually was looking for a photographer for her engagement photos so I gave her your information as well! I'm so incredibly happy with my shots I can't thank you enough! You made me feel look and feel so beautiful and comfortable with everything, and it definitely shows in the shots! You're so talented and I really can't thank you enough for everything you did!!


Johanna Varaitis

"I must say,spending the day@Monica Hahn Photography a week ago,was one of the most enjoyable and exciting events in my recent repertoire- We laughed, joked,enjoyed a lovely lunch and in between times got down to some serious photography!Monica's comments and insights were beyond belief.Personally I feel each life and personality are an accumulation of experiences,joys,sorrows,pleasures and loves.My lifetime consisted of all of the above plus much responsibility,hard work,sacrifice,sometimes struggle and many moments of happiness. All makes for the "whole person". It's amazing how this lovely young woman, Monica Hahn and makeup person can intuitively transform a person into a "work of art". 


Kody Naylor

"Shooting with Monica was awesome! She is very professional and welcoming. Monica is very helpful during the shoot and makes you feel very comfortable. As someone who is just stepping foot into the modeling industry, Monica had so much knowledge and advice to offer me. The images she produces are excellent and I would love to shoot with her again. Thank you Monica for everything!"


Erin Dockery

"This was a phenomenal experience. Simply Phenomenal. I am a novice. A novice as in I knew nothing about my camera until today. Monica Hahn is the best of the best. She is patient and kind and thorough. On the very first day, Monica had me taking pictures that I could only dream of. She factored in my goals and took me through a very unique process of learning my camera, my lenses, and light. Best of all she put everything into terms I could understand, when books and tutorials left me bewildered and confused. As much as I want to, it would be a shame to keep this experience to myself. If you are ready to learn photography, look no further than Monica Hahn!"


Maria S. Miller

"I love working with Monica Hahn. She has a positive and encouraging attitude. Rather than tell me I’m doing something wrong she provides ideas for how to improve my photographs. She helps me focus on the big picture and the tiny details in images. I really appreciate Monica’s passion for photography and her creative way of seeing things. In a few sessions I have improved the quality of my images and greatly enhanced my editing skills....and I’m getting positive comments about my images on Social Media."


Marilyn M.

"Monica Hahn literally changed my life. Although I had some reluctance because I was concerned about misrepresenting myself as better looking or more glamorous than I am, I decided to get my picture taken for linked in and match.com professionally to present a more polished expression than I can with my own photos. The shoot with Monica and the results turned out to be so much more than I imagined, turned out the old pictures were the misrepresentation, not the new ones. Monica saw the real me more than I ever had and captured me with her camera.Monica is truly brilliant! Any woman with confidence issues (and there are so many of us) could benefit from a photo shoot with Monica. Now I see what others have seen in me and it has totally reformed my self image . And, by the way, I don’t even have time for dates with all the match men now interested, thanks to my new profile pictures.!!"


Lana Watson (Mark Watson)

"I sent my son, Mark, to have his a athletic fencing portrait done after I saw some of Monica Hahn's earlier work. The end result was nothing short of AMAZING. Although no one in our family could be considered photogenic, Monica took the time to get to know him and relax him and she was able to capture a very natural feeling during the photo shoot. Even HE was happy with the portraits and there were so many striking photos from which to choose. I can truthfully say that Mark's fencing portraits were 10 times better than his senior portrait and well-worth the cost. I love the idea of portraiture specific to fencing, and Monica goes the extra mile to write up a personal bio to include in his 'Fenceography'. I highly recommend Fenceography (a subsidiary of Monica Hahn Photography) studio and Monica Hahn to anyone who is looking for a beautiful and lasting keepsake of their child's fencing life."


Jillian Spano - MMG Model & National Pageant Director

"My experience with Monica was absolutely perfect. From my first encounter with Monica she paid such attention and time to detail. She was highly engaged from preparation (months before the actual shoot) until our last and final shot of the day. Monica really takes pride in not only her work but in her models! The Hair and MUA was also absolutely phenomenal. Alecia thoughtfully planned out all of my makeup and hair looks according to the mood and wardrobe. I can't thank Monica and Alecia enough for an amazing experience!

I absolutely love them (images)! I can't wait to share them with MMG (Model Management Group Agency) this morning. You are truly talented and your work is such an art! You are also a wonderful teacher. I have learned so much in our two shoots together! Looking forward for more to come."


Dorian Baccari, Over 40 Model

"I recently completed a "Modeling Posing" workshop with Monica and Nicole at the studio and I HIGHLY recommend this Posing workshop as a FIRST step or refresher for anyone interested in the modeling profession. As a new model, who worked with many photographers and already completed my portfolio, I did not feel fully comfortable and confident with my poses. This class was a comprehensive class and taught me so much about flow posing, touch point posing and body breaking and was broken down in detail by each body part from head to toe. More importantly, the workshop was tailored specifically to my body type and as a model you learn very quickly that not all poses look good on all body types. The workshop covered so much more than posing, for example, understanding your wardrobe and understanding what or who you are modeling for. Had I done this class before completing my modeling portfolio, I know I could have collaborated and contributed much more creatively with the photographers. This class is a MUST for all model types and definitely fills a void in the modeling industry which lacks a workshop of this type. Monica and Nicole are also two very special people with infectious energy and positivity and are determined to make sure you are well prepared, comfortable and confident for future photoshoots. I am so grateful to have worked with such a creative and talented team and I cannot thank Monica and Nicole enough for guiding and sharing their expertise with me."


Lauren M., Booking Agent

"Wow is all I can say. First off I am so impressed with the variety of locations and poses you were able to get! These turned out incredible, the looks, location changes and backgrounds are all perfect. I have to say I'm also shocked / impressed with how natural Daniel looks in these. This being his first shoot ever, I was expecting a lot less but I am ecstatic with how these turned out so thank you for all your help! I think we are going to be able to book him for a ton of sport specific stuff as well as life-style shoots, especially after seeing these."


Patricia Pellegrino

"Monica was the photographer for my daughter Chelsea Pellegrino's head shots for modeling. We could not be happier with the results of the shoot! Monica captured so many awesome images of Chelsea it literally was painful to choose just the few we could use in the portfolio. Monica's guidance with Chelsea and patience was so professional. We recently sent out Chelsea's online gallery and had a call to an open call for Wilhelmena Philadelphia. This was Chelsea's first experience with an open call so nerves were a factor. We went with our portfolio from Monica and the Look Book as well. Chelsea did great for a first timer. She tried to remember all of the little tricks Monica had shown her during her photo shoot while walking the runway. At the end the Casting Directors offered critiques of anyone's portfolios. We listened to near by people being told their portfolio was lacking this and that etc... When they took Chelsea's they took the time to look at every picture and there was no negative comments. They thought the pictures showed a wide variation of looks for Chelsea. The one comment was "you look today like you look in your portfolio". They then were very interested in her Look Book again looking at every image with words like "this is beautiful",Wow"and "breathtaking". The only critique we left with that day was to add more of the Look Book photos into the portfolio book. So great job Monica in making this experience one worth remembering and we sooooo look forward to working with you again! I highly recommend Monica to anyone looking to start their modeling career because you definitely get excellent results."


Cori Semi, Mom & Actress

"Monica, you gave me a day of pampering and glorious FUN in front of the camera! I've always wanted to do this and I figured the year I turned 40 was as good a time as any. In fact, the BEST time to do this. I celebrate my years. I also have my sights on using some of this material in other aspects of my life. Thank you for making me feel beautiful yesterday Monica. Truly had a BLAST!"


Peter Williams, Realtor

"The Ultimate Professional, Monica was so knowledgeable and helpful in making me feel comfortable and relaxed. Monica took brilliant pictures and was such a pleasure to work with, will recommend her for sure!


Denise & Amanda

"I can't begin to find the words to describe what an amazing experience we had during our photo shoot. You are full of energy, creativity and are a genuine professional in every aspect of the word. As many wonderful things as Mitch had to say about you, they paled in comparison to meeting you. Amanda and I felt at ease the minute we met you. You encouraged us to have fun and relax; which is exactly what we did. We had a blast! ...From the bottom of our hearts we sincerely thank you, Olivia & Alex for a mother/daughter experience & beauty transformation we will never forget! "


Edyta Martula

"Monica - many thanks to you and your team!! Maya cannot stop talking about how fabulous you are and how much she enjoyed and loved every minute of it. And to be honest, Jiselle and I said the same thing :) We canot wait to see the pictures! Thank you for such a fun day for the girls! We appreciate your professionalism, and what an amazing sense of style you and your team have!! I am impressed with your work beyond words. Thank u!!!"


Cindy Suozzi

"You are a true professional. You captured beauty in so many photo's and have a great creative style. Thank you for making my daughter feel at ease, she had such a blast! I can't wait to pick up my photos for my holiday gifts..whew.. off my to do list LOL and no stress this year!!!"


Yuko Motoki, Mother & Business Enterpreneur

"Thank you Monica Hahn Photography for this extraordinary experience. I wanted a portrait of ME, not a picture of Jojo's mom. I mean, there's nothing I wouldn't do for my kids and love being their mom, but wanted to capture ME of now. Monica, you are amazing the way you can bring different expressions out of me… Of course, being a mom is ME too. But there are so many sides of ME that I have forgotten or ignored for a long time. Thank you Olivia Cui for the beautiful makeover. And again, Thank you Monica for capturing ME as well as who I want to be. Sophisticated and Graceful. Passionate and Sincere. Having Confidence and Strength. and always grateful."


Kelly McLaughlin Hagan

"Thanks for the note and all of the BEAUTIFUL photographs of my girlies!! You have captured their unique personalities in a timeless group of images! So pleased that we did this...my mother is over the moon....I am SO thrilled with your work!!"


Mairead Fahy, Senior Dance Company

""I absolutely love them (my images)! I'm so happy with how they came out, my mom and I are struggling to choose which ones we want! We like them all! I cannot thank you enough for working with me and teaching me how to get some good shots! They could not have possibly come out so well without you making me feel so comfortable."


Joanne White

""Thanks so much for everything! She is so happy with the images. The entire experience was such a good one for her. In addition to your incredible talent with your photography, you have such a unique way of making people around you feel special and inspired. I suspect you've been told that before, but I'm sure it couldn't hurt to hear it again!"


Elisa Odell

"I loved all the pictures it was so hard to choose. These are the best shot of my daughter that have ever been taken. Thank you so much!"


Susan Brierly, NJ Monthly Editor

"Monica is such a talented photographer and creative director. After giving Monica Hahn Photography well-deserved editorial coverage in New Jersey Monthly magazine, I experienced her "Model for a day"; photo session and was wowed by her skill and professionalism. Monica's keen sense of composition and lighting are evident in the final results and I highly recommend her for any type of portraiture"


Jaime Ayala

"I had a great experience during my photo-shoot, which was also the first one. Monica Djeu Hahn was very positive, enthusiastic, and encouraging. The way she plays with the lighting is amazing thus creating pictures that give a unique feeling. I loved working with her, I really recommend FenceOgraphy (a sports division of Monica Hahn Photography) for your fencing pictures for your fencing club or for yourself to have a great memory"


Genalyn Po {Rhodes}

"The pictures and album were AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I totally loved them...They too are phenomenal!!!!!!!!!!!!" "Zander totally loved the photo shoot and loved the experience...and everyone who has seen your work totally loved it. Everyone has commented on how well you captured emotions in both the candids and the "posed" pictures."


Rhea MV.

"Monica, simply put - you work magic. With a slightly different angle, different lighting - voila, a gorgeous, flawless photo. I am so happy we did this. I would encourage every woman to treat herself to this. I am so thrilled with all the beautiful photos. Truly an amazing talent you have."


Nicole Portantiere

"I accompanied a friend of mine to her photo shoot with Monica over the weekend. Immediately, we were greeted with warmth and smiles. Monica radiates positively and sincerity, making the process of shooting even more enjoyable. Watching Monica work was fantastic. She clearly has an extensive knowledge of and passion for photography. She is highly creative and conceptual, and the pre-edited photos are absolutely beautiful."


Sarah White

"Being a part of the team and also getting some shots taken was an unforgettable experience. For anyone who is nervous or apprehensive as I was- go for it! It's not just for models, Monica and the team work closely together to make any client feel comfortable and fun photo shoot all together!"


Anika Canta, Senior Dance Company

"My photoshoot with Monica was such a pleasant and fun experience! She makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and the pictures come out beautifully. Highly recommend for dancers who want a dance photo shoot or anyone who wants amazing pictures :)"

"From the beginning to the end, Monica puts her passion on her sleeves... she will definitely give you more than your money's worth! Between her well planned out details for the direction of the shoot, to her pickiness to get the absolute best lighting, to the execution of the shoot itself, you are in great hands! It's refreshing and reflected in the quality of her work. You don't have to worry about your attire, hair or make up... just click, click, click... photos to live for!"


Alexandria Webster

"I just recently had my Boudoir shoot with Monica. I was so nervous. It is definitely not an easy thing to get almost naked in front of someone and take direction while having them photograph such an intimate moment with you. By time time we got to shooting, I felt so comfortable. I could even see it in the images as time went on (she let me take sneak peaks to ease my anxiety). I didn't plan on purchasing the whole album but I couldn't choose! I had to have them all! Do yourself a favor and book with Monica. I am excited to come back in for head shots after my wedding!”"


Betty Bernarski

"Both my daughters had photo shoots with Monica and they loved the experience. She has a way about her that draws out the personalities of the shyest person and is able to capture those magical moments on "film". The preparation materials that she provides before the shoot really helped the kids to plan and to understand what to expect. And now I have a beautiful album to look back on. Overall, this was a wonderful experience for my kids and for me."


Victoria Benitez

"My daughter did a dance photo shoot. She loved it. The pictures are beautiful and I had a hard time choosing. Monica is a pleasure to work with and gave my daughter creative ideas with her costumes. A special moment she captured was when my daughter just outgrew her first pointe shoes and Monica asked her to sign her shoes."


Vidalay Gallois

"Fantastic experience with Monica Hahn 2 months ago when I flew right from France. I wanted to make it for me and to see what I could be able to do in front of a camera. It's my very first photoshooting with a great photographer who knows how to bring out the best in you. I was very confident in Monica's guidance and then I felt beautiful...

Take a look at her awesome pictures and book your photoshooting"


Cynthia Henrichs

"Monica has an innate talent for capturing the essence of a person, their vulnerability and soul. All in a way that makes you forget you're being photographed. She is a treasure."


MaryRose Abplanalp

"Monica was absolutely wonderful!! She made my three kids and I feel comfortable in our own skin. My girls and I felt beautiful inside and out. I couldn't believe how comfortable my son was in front of the camera. I treasure all of my pictures and look forward to doing a photo shoot again with Monica"


Nelson Arrieta, Jr

"Monica and her team was so awesome to work with! I’ve been modeling for about 5 years and this was the best photo shoot I’ve ever had. She was so much fun and professional at the same time. Monica and her team made me feel so comfortable and relaxed that we got some awesome shots in. I highly would recommend going to Monica. Her studio is beautiful. Her team is beautiful. And her soul is beautiful. She just wants the best for you !"


Silvana Wilson

"My Life is definitely transformed after shooting with Monica Hahn. Not only was the experience super fun and free-spirited, but she was also great at helping her clients with social media and how to promote yourself as a model to get to the top in this competitive world. Very talented and professional, the one person who knows how to get things done."


Sarah Nalic

"Monica is highly talented, the team is super dedicated and professional, they will provide all the insights that you need plus Monica's focus is that you truly enjoy the experience and that each photo represents you, so she will spend time getting to know you and will make your moment beyond special, I promise! We did the photo shoot in NY, this experience will bring the best in you and gift you with forever moments to cherish! Go for it!!"


Robert Mrozinski

"Monica went out of her way to create a comfortable and "chill" atmosphere for my professional head shots. I am not the type of person who would normally feel comfortable having my picture taken in a "professional" setting and certainly would not think anyone would find enjoyment looking at pictures of me! Monica absolutely changed that for me because

- she's knows EXACTLY what she's doing behind the camera, from lighting and angles, to directing how to sit and where to look...and 2 - the pictures she presented me

with looked so crisp, clear and professional that I didn't hesitate to update my professional and social media profiles the day I got those pictures back. I've been told many times how much people like the pictures and that they look very "GQ"...which I took as a compliment :) If you need head shots, or whatever personal pictures you desire...go see Monica.

You will not be disappointed, I promise you that!"


Regina Fickas

"I enjoyed the photo shoot a lot. The vibe was relaxed and in turn it helped me to relax as I am not the most comfortable in front of the camera. Overall it was a very good experience and I know that I as well as my mom and sister really enjoyed ourselves"


Helen Jacobsen

"​The photo shoot was a pivotal point for me and my three granddaughters. For most women, no matter what age, our appearance and acceptance is critical.

Personally, I think the teens and early years have the most impact, because everything appears to be very black and white. A teacher that loves your work is significant, as is someone that makes a negative remark. I think all of us prefer more of the positive influence for our children and grandchildren

I think my granddaughters are all intelligent and beautiful. (They really are! :) ) ......I asked them ahead of time if they wanted to do a photo shoot with the hair and makeup in the mix. They thought it was a good idea but none of us really knew what to expect. I immediately sensed that this was going to be a good experience, when I spoke to and met Monica. She has an upbeat and buoyant personality, and was straight-forward and honest with the details. Couldn't be happier about that.

The finished product. Wow! The granddaughters LOVED their photos and so did their moms. Things were posted immediately to friends and family. These were professional, beautiful shots of the ladies. Who knew? They now have many beautiful pictures that they can post to friends, use for a job application or submit to an organization etc. This will be a lasting memory that they had with grandma. Thank you Monica for being the person your are and for the artistic gift you bring to each photo shoot. My best, Helen


Sherry Stewart

"​I was apprehensive about being professionally photographed, but Monica made me feel very comfortable with myself and in front of the camera. Not only is she an excellent photographer, but she is an amazing coach. I was captured in what appears to be very natural and relaxed state. Monica's creativity, knowledge and professionalism shine through. Her follow through after the initial photography session has been helpful and beneficial too. Once the photos are digitally delivered, there is still a lot to do, from selection of the photos, retouching, printing, etc. I highly recommend Monica and her team for memorializing special moments and events."


Kody Helm

"Man, what an amazing experience. This was my first ever photo shoot as I'm trying to build a modeling portfolio. I must say, Monica's knowledge in this space is incredible. I was really nervous at first but she made me feel right at home and I was able to relax enough to get some good shots. We shared some laughs at my goofy faces and poses but it was a great time overall. Incredible photographer and incredible experience. 5/5. Would go back any day."


Fiona Lee

"Monica is very personable, creative and experienced. She knows how to make anyone get in front of the camera with confidence and pose in a way that makes them look beautiful. She reveals a side of us that we never even thought was a part of us. She's full of knowledge and experiences and understands how to bring ideas to life and captured them beautifully. I've learned a lot styling, posing, and camera tips from chatting / working with her."


Evelyn Orcutt

"I found Monica and her stylist Jenny through the spa I get pampered at. I was the lucky winner of a full makeover give away they raffled off. I am not the biggest fan of being photographed, especially when I'm the center of attention, I have to say that this was a very neat experience though. Being a mom of 3 and a homemaker, I sometimes forget to remember me. Looking at my pictures, I couldn't help but smile from ear to ear as I saw me and all I could think was "wow, is that me?!" Monica and Jenny are fun, easy-going, free spirited who instantly make you feel at ease. I think that's important and it helps people relax, especially when doing something that is not up your alley. I would definitely recommend giving her a shot, pun intended ;)"


Imani Roberts

"She was very lovely and was all about making me feel comfortable. Pictures came out so beautiful. She brought out a side I didn’t know I had. 10/10 service she deserves every penny"


Pagona M. Lajllee

"Life changing. Monica has the passion and patience for her craft. Her approach truly blew me away. I love my selfies.... But I loved Monica taking pics of me, more!

The entire experience from first contact and on was smooth. Her team and friendly reminders kept me on pace up until the day of my photo shoot.

When you book Monica, you are in for a beautiful moment in time. "


Lisa Kline

"I wanted to say a huge thank you for working with me on my photos. They look absolutely amazing! The finish made them look even more beautiful and I appreciate all you did!



Stefan Allicock

"Booked a model posing session with her. Prior to the session I sent her a bunch of photos that I liked and didn't like, which she reviewed. We then jumped right into explain why my poses came and expressions came out good in some pictures and bad in others. Then we went over how to pose, take advantage of angles and surroundings.
I would highly recommend her!!!"


Robert Hudson

"Excellent photos shoot and photos with Monica. She does a great professional job while making it lively and fun. She's also very efficient and communicative. Highly recommended."


Brooklynn Rose

"Monica is absolutely amazing! she brought me out of my shell and made me feel so comfortable! her studio is so clean and welcoming. I will definitely be booking with her again as she's making my dreams come true:)"

"I had an incredible experience with Inside the Style Studio and Monica Hahn recently! I live in San Diego and have been considering getting into modeling, and with this in mind booked a modeling photo shoot at the San Diego location to get pictures for a modeling look book, and was absolutely pleased with everything!

The experience from start to finish was great, from the pre-photoshoot interactions with Monica and her team, asking questions about modeling and offerings of the studio and (after deciding to book with them) talking about outfit ideas for the photoshoot. Monica NEVER seemed an ounce pushy trying to get me to spend more or pressure me into a decision, both before booking and afterwards when considering photo purchasing decisions.

The photoshoot itself was very enjoyable: relaxed and very comfortable and yet at the same time certainly respectful and professional. I felt comfortable being myself and Monica was very kind and knowledgeable to help me be able to pose for the shoot, as I've never modelled before. Speaking of being a newbie, she was also able to answer some of my questions and give me a few tips/ideas/terminology relating to modeling and getting started in the industry that I think can help me beyond simply the final images from the photoshoot. The final photos were also incredible though!

I was able to take advantage of an incredible limited time promotion the Studio was putting on, which for me made the experience EXTREMELY worth the price.

SO pleased with the entire experience, and it was EXACTLY what I wanted/needed!"


Bobbie Anderson

"I treated myself to a photoshoot for my milestone birthday. This was the first time I have done anything like this. I was unsure of what to expect before, during and after. As a plus size person, I wondered how I would be treated during the shoot and whether or not I would feel comfortable with the photographer. I can't speak highly enough about my experience with Monica Hahn Photography. Living out of state, I didn't get a chance to meet her in person prior to the shoot, but it didn't matter. She made me feel so comfortable both on the phone and in person during the shoot. This positive experience has made me comfortable enough to schedule another shoot when I'm in the area again. If you are on the fence and not sure about this, DO IT. I had an amazing experience, and you will to! Thank you, Monica, for making me feel beautiful on this magical day."


Christine Fajotina

"THANK YOU, Monica!!! From the bottom of our hearts! You gifted us with some of the happiest moments!! Our hearts are beyond full!! 😘❤️"

Monica did an amazing job for a modeling portfolio for Brooklyn. Monica went above and beyond to show Brooklyn some suggestions on posing and outfit coordination prior to her photoshoot. She also did Brooklyn's hair styles all of which were absolutely beautiful! The turnaround time to edit her work was very quick and I was so impressed with the end result. I was able to be included in Monica's preview by a Zoom call. I was blown away with the quality and variety of Brooklyn's poses and outfits. Monica provided a lot of detailed information on how Brooklyn can get started in the Modeling industry and gave very detailed guidance on all Brooklyn needed for her Go-see. I can't wait to see Brooklyn's portfolio and comp cards. I highly recommend Monica to anyone interested in a modeling portfolio.
