“The most creative, professional and friendliest photographers. Erika and her team go beyond the standard portrait, creating and capturing beautiful “moments” for your family. Erika and Leah captured our newborn daughter in the most natural and adorable settings. They were gentle with her and knew how to lull her into a slumber. The Pod studio has so many outfits and settings on hand, but also welcome you to bring in your own ideas, clothing, moments, etc. Easy to work with and so professional, we are excited to have The Pod continue to capture our little one’s growth and milestones.” – D Salas
“We love Erika and The Pod Photography team! We did both our maternity and newborn photography sessions with The Pod Photo and I was so impressed with how the photos turned out! We booked a beach session for maternity and newborn in the studio. Erika made me feel so comfortable and it was a fun experience for the whole fam. Her expertise during the newborn photo shoot was very apparent — I was in awe of all the adorable poses and sets she put together. I gave her my vision and she went above and beyond to purchase items to execute on it! We will definitely look to book The Pod Photo for our future milestones as well and I’m so grateful to have several amazing photos to display in our home from this special time. If you’re looking for a professional photography team and a fun experience overall, I would highly recommend them!” – Jillian Geer

🎡Occasion: #Joanneleungaboutme • ♥️Shall I share more about myself again? I'm going to disclose 3 personal facts and I would love to read facts about YOU in the comments! •1. 📷by yours truly–Yes, it's a selfie! I took about 30 to have 1 chosen, yes, pathetic I know! My camera was set on a tripod and it was taken in the middle of a natural preserve at f/16 so the focus wasn't the hardest part. It was me trying to run to the spot that I want without looking like I was falling over to the pokey plants or making a silly face unintentionally that was hard. All in exactly 10 seconds as I didn't have a remote trigger. • •2.I love camping and being in the nature. Being dirty without shower for days doesn't bother me one bit. The quiet calms me and the nature humbles me. • •3. Favorite food on the camp grounds: It's a tie between a juicy ribeye steak or a fresh caught trout! What's yours? • • • • • #love #travel #socalwedding #moodygram #whyweadventure #socalphotographer #goldenlight #radlovestories #losangelesweddingphotographer #naturallight #bridetobe #weddingblogger #engagementpictures #engagementinspo #weddingstyle #thatsdarling #weddingplanner #weddingstylist #elopmentphotographer #adventure #adventureculture #adventureawaits #adventuroussouls #adventurouslovestories #staywild #wanderingweddings
Joanna Leaung loves the anticipation and excitement for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time on their wedding day, and it is her privilege to be in the special position as a wedding photographer to tell the story in beautiful images.
Her approach for weddings is to tell the story of the wedding day like a fly on the wall. She tends to let the events unfold naturally as she captures the real reactions through the day, while ensuring that she captures all the intricate details, happiness and fun. When the timing is right, she also mix in a bit of traditional approach to direct her brides and grooms under the best light and angles for beautiful yet natural portraits. She thinks it is important to be able to be flexible and balance the right amount of photojournalism, spontaneity, and traditional wedding photography for different brides and grooms with unique personalities. The day passes by so fast, and in the years after the wedding, she wants her brides and grooms to be able to reflect back on the day and remember all the little details through her photos.

“Joanne Leung Photography was the photographer at our son and daughter in law’s wedding. He did an amazing job: creative, innovative and able to capture our most treasured moments. The wedding photos and engagement shots were both terrific. We recently met to order the wedding album and was once again struck by Joanne Leung Photography knowledge and easy going nature. He gave us all the options and made the process so easy. We are looking forward to seeing the completed book. We would highly recommend him for any wedding. Sandy and Dan.” – Yenny Turner
“Joanne Leung Photography was very responsive and pleasant to deal with, attentive to detail and knowledgeable about what works/doesn’t work when shooting before/at/after sunset to achieve gorgeous views of the ocean with me and my spouse in the spotlight.

“Very satisfied with my photos and experience with Oxana. From start to finish, she’s responsive, professional and prompt. During the shoot, she gave me a mini modeling session because she cares about the quality of your photos and wants you to look your best. It’s hard to find someone whose customer service is just as good as their work. We traveled out of state to work with her and don’t regret it.” – Tenia Michelle
“Oxana is simply a master at what she does! My husband and I are both blown away with how my maternity photos came out. When researching photographers, I knew Oxana would be good, but she far, far, FAR exceeded my expectations.

Fine-art wedding & Documentary wedding
“Hank and his assistant were our photographers for our wedding this month. Hank was very professional and easy to work with, he knew exactly what was needed and was great at communicating that. Hank was very responsive which I appreciate as I was planning my wedding from another state. Hank took us out during the reception for a few minutes to capture this amazing photo at night. We just saw a glimpse of it on his camera and loved it. We are very excited to receive our teaser gallery soon. Will update this review once photos are received but have no doubt that they will be absolutely amazing.” – Leah Waring
“Hank was amazing! He was easy to keep in touch with as we came closer to the day and he was very willing to work with our timeline. He also took the time to understand our expectations from the beginning. We primarily chose Hank because of his attention to detail and he exceeded our expectations. He took the time to make sure that all the details in the background were perfect. We couldn’t recommend Hank enough.” – Janine Rizzi
Anthony Mongiello Photography
Anthony Mongiello has a decade of experience shooting character headshots for actors in his studio in downtown Los Angeles. Character looks are usually more dramatic than commercial actor headshots. They focus on a particular character type and are geared towards being cast in movies, plays and TV shows.
Anthony understands what casting directors are looking when casting for a particular role, and he knows how to take a character headshot that stands out from others. He will bring out your unique qualities and show off your personality in your headshots.
If you are not sure what character look fits you best, Anthony will consult you about your “type” and the wardrobe that would look the best in your headshots.
Headshots, Business and corporate, Retouching, Make Up and Hair
“I’ve been coming to Anthony for my head shots for the past 8 years. My auditions were stalling out and scheduled a sessions to update my head shots. The options I brought were no where near what I needed to be submitting to secure work. Not only did Anthony give me sound advice on what looks I should be shooting he took the time to help me get a clearer idea of how we could make bolder statements with these new looks. Most photographers would have said nothing, taken my money did the shoot and called it a day. People like Anthony are rare in L.A. especially when it comes to the business. He cares about his clientele and he cares about helping you get the best shots so you can get in the door! That’s just a review of how he is as a person and a professional. His head shot photography is another story and I personally think he’s one of the best in L.A. with a great price point!” – Sean McBride
“Anthony Mongiello is an excellent photographer! He has done my headshots on two separate occasions and I have been delighted with his fine work.” – Linda M Montana
