Customer Reviews:

“I am so happy I found Tiana to capture my son's cake smash photos, they came out amazing! She is so talented and creative, I went with a wild one safari theme for the photos and the setup she did was awesome exactly how I imagined it! I wish I would have found her earlier for both of my son's newborn pictures. She also delivered the photos in a timely manner so that I was able to display a photo at my son's first birthday party. She is so sweet and good with children I highly recommend her, she is truly the best!” - Jessica Lizama

“My favourite part of the job is to see my clients wipe away tears after seeing their images. One mom said to me, ‘we really are beautiful.’ YES, you really are BEAUTIFUL, no matter what you are wearing, what you look like, or how old you are. I hope I can help you see that in yourself.”

Campbell strongly believes that you deserve family photos that you can look back on and cherish for years: 

“As your family photographer, my goal is to look for that spark of joy and connection, then preserve it for you. Whether it's your little one's first birthday, or your family's first time getting together and celebrating in a year, it's my pleasure to capture those moments for you.”

Rich D (Radical Snaps)

Richard is the face behind Radical Snaps and he strongly believes that family images are truly some of the most treasured possessions anyone can have. Richard understands the responsibility entrusted to him by your family to preserve some of the most important memories of your lives with the people you care about, a responsibility he is thankful to have. 

He knows how easy it is for anyone to capture decent pictures these days with their cell phone, but Richard believes there is no substitute for a professional photoshoot with high-quality equipment and a skilled photographer. Capturing a picture that showcases the love and joy shared with your family goes beyond a simple button on your phone. It’s important to understand how light and composition interact with family members in order to capture the absolute best pictures: 

“People are accustomed to seeing themselves from the standpoint of amateur cell phone pictures so I always love seeing their excitement when they see themselves in professional pictures. What better way to celebrate and preserve those precious family moments that have them captured by a professional photographer.”

Richards family packages are for up to 6 family members and this can include dogs!

“Rich is a great photographer! He communicated with me from start to finish. Gave me options for locations. Nice guy and very easygoing. It was my first solo professional photoshoot and he made me feel very comfortable. If you’re looking for one of the best photographers in the LA area. Rich is the man!” - TeachNBLK History

“Been working with Rich for over a year now. I don’t know anything about photography, but he always helps me choose the best location, makes me comfortable during photos, chooses the best time of day to have the lighting perfect etc. There are many people that do his type of work but he is by far the best I’ve ever worked with. Prices are incredibly reasonable for the quality of the work too.” - Kendrick Park

Anthony Bryce Graham (The Bryce Studio)

Anthony Graham’s love for photography sparked when he was learning how to articulate the importance of storytelling as a young journalist in Brooklyn, NY covering the Atlantic yards project which is now the Barclays Center: 

“I got the job because I stood in the way of all the photographers at a press meeting with my camera while Al Sharpton signed the community benefits agreement. I snapped that photo and all the old heads yelled at me to move so they could get the special shot that I knew was coming.”

Graham furthered his skills at USC's School of Dramatic Arts MFA acting program, where he developed a keen eye shooting film projects, cultivating deep empathy while exploring the lives of many characters.

Now, as a father, the depth of his storytelling has no end:

“Your story is life-affirming, healing, and the conductor for a magical connection between us all. As a professional family photographer with over 7+ years of experience, my aim is to direct and allow your family's story to unfold like origami, capturing the essence of your presence and inner world,” says Graham. “A family session is about much more than the photos; it's about you -- and curating an experience your family can share and remember long after the photos have been framed and hung in the family home. It's about your story. Your magic. The beautiful life you've created with the people you love most.”

As a father and co-parent, I'm guided by empathy at the forefront of every photography session, prioritizing a safe and affirming experience for you and your loved ones in front of the lens,” says Graham. “As a professionally-trained actor (MFA, USC School of Dramatic Arts), I know how to gently guide and coach you and your family through posing to let your personality and spirit shine through. As a cinematographer, I also know how to combine composition and lighting to bring out the best in my subjects -- so you'll have that perfect photo for the wall at home to cherish for years.”

Customer Reviews:

“There are not enough words to express the experience my family and I had working with Joey. Joey captured my vision of honoring my late father and brought life back to my family. Joey and I messaged tons leading up to the shoot. From day 1 I knew she was our photographer. The day was perfect and Joey did a walk-through of locations with me and picked the best times for lighting etc. You are a fool if you don’t hire Joey. Thank you so very much for capturing my family’s special day and helping me gift my mom the best Mother’s Day gift. You are amazing Joey and I’ll never forget that day. I will be hiring you again soon.” - Fernie C
