Even better, his mission is to spread happiness to all! He does so, while producing exceptional work!
We really look forward to partnering with him again! “
Ryan Hurley – CEO of ” Vert & Vogue “
” I first saw Pascal’s work at a fundraiser for the Women’s Center in Chapel Hill and was very impressed by his composition and the originality of his work.
When I was given the opportunity to have him do my re-election CAMPAIGN photographs, I did not hesitate to hire Pascal right away.
I am someone who has never liked to have my picture taken, even when I was a child. Pascal made what I expected to be an ordeal actually fun.
The pictures from that session are without question the best pictures of me that have ever been taken !
I have found the only photographer that I will ever need. “
Durham’s DISTRICT ATTORNEY – 14th Prosecutorial District
“ My Husband and I greatly enjoyed working with Pascal!
From the moment he walked into our home we felt like he was a friend.
He is an amazingly talented artist who naturally knows what images to capture.
He was incredibly patient and nurturing with our newborn. We were amazed at the amount of time he spent with us and the number of pictures he took for us!
Our final portraits are beyond anything we could have ever imaged !!!!
We are so happy that Pascal could capture all the love we felt at the time for our new baby girl… “
Renee Thornton Crescenzi
That was such a great experience Pascal!
I REALLY LOVED working with you! You are such a great professional!
Nothing was left to chance. I remember you even pulled stray hair from my face. I am talking about one hair or two!
Marie-Claire Ribeill – French Consul in the USA
His photographic talent is obvious from looking at the images in his portfolio, but what you can’t tell until you work with him is just how attentive, patient, and helpful he is throughout the whole process.
Before my photo shoot, he helped me with choosing and scheduling a shoot location, and with making wardrobe selections. And then of course during the shoot, he made it fun and comfortable and took his time making sure we got hundreds of amazing shots in different poses and attitudes. My bangs were being so annoying that day, but he painstakingly adjusted them for every shot.
After the shoot, he went above and beyond helping me choose which photos to use on my website and artfully retouched my favorite ones.
I had been putting off getting professional photos for years, and I should have hired Pascal a long time ago!
He was so fun to work with, and I ended up with amazing photos that capture the spirit of my business and that I can use for many years to come. I have gotten so many compliments on my new website thanks to his images.
So many people have gone out of their way to say how great the pictures turned out! His work speaks for itself !
Thank you so much Pascal Monmoine ! “
Margy Thomas – Renowned riting Coach & Editor – Founder of ” ScholarShape.com “
Thank you so much for all of your efforts.
So many staff members told me how much they enjoyed the photo shoot you did for us. They had many compliments about you as a person.
The final headshots and group photo came out great!. Our CEO and the staff were very happy with the results.
You did a really great job! Thank You. “
Andrea Kloehn – COO of MEDSTAFF National Medical Staffing
“ To refer to this man as a photographer is to woefully understate his talents. He becomes one with his subject and not only captures the visual but the true essence of the person and the situation.
After you have experienced the joy and beauty of being transformed in this manner, you will never settle for mere photography again. “
Evia Jordan – Attorney at Law
“ Pascal ,
You are by far one of the most brilliant people I have ever met.
I absolutely loved working with you and I am so glad that I could be a part of your art. Stay wonderful ! “
Brittany – Top Model
” My name is Stacey Halprin, and I am an actress, author and speaker, who was in the Top 25 Oprah Winfrey‘s guests of all time, after being on her show for 13 appearances.
Throughout my career I have worked with countless photographers on a professional level. My experiences included many great photographers but Pascal Monmoine’s photos surpassed not only my expectations, but was the finest photos I have ever seen!
The moment I saw Pascal’s work for the first time, I knew this man had to take the most important photo of my life: my wedding portrait.
Pascal knowledge of location and atmosphere was prepped way before we arrived, enabling the sessions to be very smoothed. His personality was so infectious that he kept us happy, laughing and comfortable throughout the shoot.
When I saw the finished work, I was stunned! Pascal captured the genuine raw feelings of our love to perfection!
Stacey Halprin – Actress, Author and Speaker – part of the very exclusive list of the ” Top 25 Oprah guest of all times “
” Pascal, I cannot thank you enough for the many beautiful photos you have gifted our family! Your patience and gentle manner put all of us at ease – not an easy feat for three generations! We so appreciated your guidance, clever ideas, professionalism, and kind words throughout our time together. The experience itself brought us closer and we will forever cherish that day. There are simply too many beautiful pictures from which to choose!
Most importantly, your enthusiasm and playful spirit made it possible for my 5-year-old daughter to happily partake in nearly three hours of photos! In fact, some of the most breathtaking photos were from our last hour and I’m sure she had no idea you were a professional at work. It is clear from the pictures that Luca was having a blast and you made quite the impression! She has asked about “Pastel” several times since that day. Moreover, your beautiful pictures of her made fantastic Christmas presents for our friends and family who loved them!
I also want to thank you for taking the extra time to capture my baby at play at both the park and in the comfort of our home. People say we will never have “this moment” again but I could not disagree more when I look at our pictures. I am amazed each time I look at them at the depth of emotions I experience every time. It is as if we are there once again during that precious moment together, laughing, playing, and loving.
Your ability to capture the emotion of any given moment is brilliant and your passion for doing so is food for the soul!
I look forward to working together again!
Thank you Pascal!!!
Natalie Jacome – Psychologist and Mum
” We commissioned Pascal Monmoine to take photographs of our office for publication, advertising and our website. The photos were AMAZING!!!
Pascal was very thorough with the lighting and captured every detail possible to construct a phenomenal shoot. He went above and beyond our expectations.
He took over 700 photographs and it was hard to choose our favorites as all the photos were awesome.
Also to our surprise, Pascal made the day fun. We laughed and enjoyed the photo shoot. The smiles in our pictures are genuine as we had a blast with him.
I would highly recommend Pascal Monmoine Photography!!!
Thank you so much Pascal!! “

“ It is a pleasure for me to have the opportunity to express my gratitude to Pascal for what he has done for my company from “the other side of lens”.
Over the past many years, Pascal has taken photos of my Café/Restaurant, the people in it, the structure and the food, that not only capture the ‘sights’ as one would simple see them at first glance but he was able to capture the essence of what our Café/Restaurant stands for.
His images portray the spirit and meaning of the place as I had envisioned it. Pascal succeeded in freezing in time images and moments any restaurateur could only hope for. He managed to capture the happiness that is brought to people through our Restaurant.
Pascal’s images of our dishes and desserts are vibrant, alive and magic.
He has captured customers from toddlers to grandparents in moments of joyful bliss as they indulge in one of our pastry creations or enjoy the company of each other.
Pascal’s photos are simply magical and reach so far beyond simple visual images of a place and people. His photos are moments in time where as the onlooker you get the sense that you could step right into them and hear the laughs and smell the scents.
I will always be deeply grateful for the gift he has given me with his photography that documents such an important part of my life and soul. “
Claudia Cooper – Owner of GUGLHUPF Bakery, Café & Restaurant

I LOVE the pictures you took of my daughter, they are perfect! Your talent is very amazing!

” Just the thought of the shoot that I did with Pascal Monmoine brings back a genuine smile to my face…
I so clearly remember that day. The sky was shadowed with gray, the wind was whirled, and the torrential downpours came and went as they pleased. As most people would see this as a gloomy rainy day … Pascal saw it instead as an inspiring masterpiece. You could see his eyes light up when he focused on the glistening wet roads…
He expressed great concern about me thorough the shoot, in regards to the outdoor temperature and the weather conditions. At all times he wanted to make sure that I was absolutely comfortable with all our surroundings. He handed me a umbrella and we went on a photographic adventure. It was like my best friend was the photographer…
Pascal was very professional and exceptionally kind.
Pascal Monmoine is everything that you could ask for and more… Absolutely the best ! “
Brittany Whitford – Top Model

” I worked in Los Angeles in the modeling industry for many years and have worked with some of the best photographers in the world – that is until I met Pascal Monmoine!
Pascal’s creativity, energy, enthusiasm, talent and personality make him one of the easiest photographers to work with.
He is definitely eager to please and works a mile-a-minute to make sure that your money is well spent all the while getting some of the most quality photography one could ever wish for! I don’t know why he isn’t working in LA, New York or Paris , but I do know that I am very happy this level of talent is right here in North Carolina . Pascal Monmoine is the best ! ”
Marlene Janssen – Top Model
“ Recently, I had the good fortune of working with an extremely talented photographer – Pascal Monmoine! Having heard a lot about him already and seeing his work first hand, I was eager and excited to work with him…
From the very beginning, Pascal was extremely considerate. Unfortunately we’d picked one of the hottest days of the summer to do an outdoor shoot. But Pascal was ever the gentlemen and was such a treat to work with. I had never seen a photographer willing to compromise his comforts for the sake of art…
Pascal is not afraid to step out of the so-called proverbial ‘box’! And he’s also not shy about challenging you as a model to do the same…
Whether the shot required him to climb atop his SUV or lay on his back on the hot pavement, Pascal was happy to oblige and willing to do whatever it took to acquire a phenomenal picture.
I can honestly say that working with him was one of the best experiences of my modeling career and I definitely walked out of the session learning a lot more about myself.
Thank you Pascal !… “
Sena Negrisor – Model

He approached each setting with a unique perspective and delivered a high-quality product, with lots of options, for every need and did it in a timely way. He really captured our spirit.
I very much like the pictures in my office and in the conference room. They are all truly incredible. “
David Curtis Smith – The Law Firm of HERRING MILLS & KRATT
“ As a model, I am always challenging myself and the photographers I work with to do something unique, creative, and intriguing to the eye.
As soon as I met Pascal, I knew that my goal would be accomplished. I instantly connected with him.
Our experience together was definitely new for me – we met at dusk, drove to a large field, and didn’t start to shoot until the sky was completely black. Even with the enormous task of trying to make beautiful pictures without natural lighting, Pascal was friendly and professional. He had me laughing within the first five minutes. We turned up the music and started shooting.
Pascal did a fantastic job of providing direction when needed, and let me explore my own ideas too. He was great about communicating with me before and after the shoot and the pictures I received from our time together were amazing !!!
I look forward to working with Pascal again very soon. “
Melissa E. – Model

After describing my thoughts to Pascal, he immediately started make suggestions and elaborating on ways to embellish my dream.
Pascal allowed me to take risks as a model and he encouraged me to do “something different”…

Lori Eichel – Partner, Accent Construction, LLC
” Working, if you want to call it that, with Pascal on a Photo-Shoot was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have ever had with a photographer!!!
Actually I had been looking forward to it so much and the total experience was even more incredible than I could have imagined! I tend to shy away from being photographed, not being a model or actress professionally, yet he had a way of keeping me focused on the purpose of what we were doing: searching out photographs that capture the soul and spirit of what and who I am.
I became more relaxed, listened to his thoughtful comments and directions. Knowing that he was also shooting hundreds of them allowed us to keep the spirit light and soulful, and it also helped to remind myself hat surely there would be more than one I would love. The reality is that there are so many I love, now it is difficult, tres dificile, to select my favorite one(s)! No worries, Pascal said, slip several into a zip email folder to him and he could discuss the ones with me in order to find the perfect one. The work he does does not stop after the shoot, not by a long shot, and he is very patient as we decide on our selections.
Pascal also did a FAMILY PORTRAIT of our entire family, which I have wanted done professionally for many years. The hundreds of photographs that he shot were amazing, and the turn-around of the ones to see via email was almost instantaneous!
His dedication to capturing the heart and soul of what our family “is” truly shows through his work. Not only does he work quickly and efficiently, but he takes out the time to create an atmosphere for us to laugh, relax, enjoy the moment of experiencing that incredible day, creating our memories and capturing them on film!
He was patient and kind, providing me with time to “warm up” literally as it was unusually chilly for an early fall day. I would slip on his very own down coat and stand next to the heaters we had set up outdoors during a break in order to get back to it! I recall him always saying and doing things to create a beautiful, loving and fun time throughout the time we had together. I feel that I have discovered a new friend in this man, who borrowed my garden clogs to slide around in the wet grass and mud, apologized and then made jokes about himself dressed in water-proof overalls I have seen pictures of him, of course, and know that he has true style and grace in how he would normally walk out of his home.
His commitment to work was amazing as he ignored the not so perfect weather conditions, overcoming them through lighting and such equipment, along with his overalls to stay dry!. Pascal, you see, is a perfectionist yet loves what he does in such a way, it is almost indescribable.
As he says it best, his desire is to discover the soul, the true spirit of the person or group that he is working with, so that it is forever captured in a photograph. I cannot imagine a better person to work with!
Pascal is also SO patient, as I changed into various outfits for shots; he even helped me when I was uncertain with final decisions about what jewelry would show up best! He was right, too.
I am so pleased with how the total picture, literally, resulted in what I saw in myself anew: my real self, not self-conscious, or “over the top”, or even too shy. I am stunned and so happy to see a woman who appears strong, and also truly a heart centered person, through the expressions he was able to capture!
His focus also was on the areas we wanted to use for the shoot, utilizing his own creativity for poses and background. Be reassured, he would say, that,” I can take out whatever shows up in the surrounding landscape should you choose, and create your photograph from the “raw” shot to something enhanced slightly, yet in a way that it is still truly YOU”!
Debbie Sheggog – Yoga Teacher & Public Figure
” Shooting with Pascal was a wonderful experience. He made me feel very comfortable throughout the shoot and was very professional, and he has a great sense of humor.
He transformed his vision into beautiful works of art.
The choice of setting, lighting, and mood really came alive in the pictures we shot together.
I was blown away by his work, and I would shoot with him again in a second ! … “
