Los Angeles Photographer
My name is Sherri Johnson and I am a photographer in Los Angeles, California. I specialize in portrait photography, wedding photography, event photography, and real estate photography. I provide professional photography services on-location and at my Los Angeles studio located in Mid City.
I enjoy capturing a wide range of portrait subjects including engagement sessions, online dating profile pictures, family portraits, pet portraits, maternity portraits, and boudoir. Most of my portrait sessions take place on-location in the greater Los Angeles area. If you need some inspiration for the perfect place to go for your session check out my article Top 5 Tips for Planning a Portrait Session for my advice on planning your photoshoot including choosing a location, what to wear, best time of day for using natural lighting, beauty tips, and some fun prop ideas.
As a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I have over 11+ years of experience photographing weddings in Southern California from Santa Barbara, to Palm Springs, San Diego, and Orange County. I have masterfully captured over 250+ events for couples and I can create really amazing photos for you too!
Many would describe my wedding imagery as romantic, candid, timeless, and fun. You may be most attracted to my candid non-posy moments while also appreciating my direction with styling and posing to help you look and feel your very best. With a blend of photography styles including photojournalism, traditional portraiture, and editorial, I promise to document your love story in beautiful and creative ways.
In addition to really good wedding photographs, I also offer services for engagement portraits, rehearsal coverage, Wedding Albums, Parent Albums, Fine Art Canvas, Printed Proofs, original RAW files, and archival USBs.
As a Los Angeles event photographer, I've been invited to some really cool parties ranging from children's birthday parties to corporate events. Some notable projects include traveling with Sony's Destination Playstation to Costa Rica, Cabo and Arizona, Facebook and Oculus at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo), Pasadena Tournament of Roses, Hong Kong Tourism Board, and most recently a private cooking demo with Nancy Silverton at her restaurant in Hancock Park.
Real Estate Photography
Good real estate photography should include a variety of images like inviting exteriors and cozy interiors. With a combination of advanced lighting techniques, I can pull in natural window views giving your images clarity for those money shots. I can also virtually stage a room to help give buyers an idea of how they can use the space.
I have been in the real estate marketing business for 14+ years. My first job out of college was retouching real estate images at VHT, a company on the northwest side of Chicago. I learned what makes a good photograph and ways to get pictures better in camera to prevent the over-processed look often times associated with HDR. When I moved to Los Angeles in 2008, I continued editing remotely while starting to pick up freelance photography jobs.
These days, I offer real estate photography services in the Los Angeles area. Many of my projects include million dollar homes from Los Feliz, Hollywood Hills, to Bel Air, Malibu, and beyond. Many of my clients are competitive realtors looking for the best photographs of their properties. My pictures will help sell a home faster, for more money, and will attract more future buyers and sellers to your business.
Some notable projects include this beautiful Ojai Farmhouse published in Modern Farmhouse & Living Magazine, midcentury masterpiece in Rolling Hills for Kevin Tsai Architecture, shared office Spaces in Menlo Park, and a Frank Lloyd Wright estate in Topanga Canyon. The most expensive property I have ever photographed was a $20.4 million private trophy estate in Beverly Hills once owned by a Coca Cola heir, Alki David. My favorite home of all time include a celebrity owned Spanish Style villa with mermaid tile floor in Los Feliz or a 100 year old cottage I once rented in Huntington Beach.
Aerial Drone Photography
I am a FAA Certified Drone Pilot and offer aerial photographs on location in the Los Angeles area. This is a great add on service for real estate listings, property surveying, commercial projects, and more. The perspective from the air gives context to your property in relation to the surrounding areas. I promise to always fly safe at your property by checking the airmaps and weather conditions before departure.
