A fresh website launch for an IT consultant company in Los Angeles

"I recently had the pleasure of working with MRLA Web Design. They exceeded all of my expectations. From the very first consultation, their team took the time to listen to my needs and preferences, and they were incredibly patient and accommodating throughout the entire process.

Their design work was top-notch, and they managed to capture the exact look and feel that I was hoping for in my website. They also paid close attention to the user experience, ensuring that the site was intuitive and easy to navigate.

But what really set them apart was their level of customer service. They were always available to answer any questions I had, and they provided timely updates throughout the design process. Their professionalism and attention to detail made me feel confident that my website was in good hands.

Overall, I am thrilled with the outcome of my website and I would highly recommend this web design service to anyone in need of a professional and reliable team to bring their vision to life. "

A dental office looking to dominate their SEO

"Johnny has been instrumental for my startup business. He showed me how we were doing very poorly with SEO and within a month we have seen real results that show good progress. He’s very responsive and answered all my questions throughout the entire process. I’ve even referred him to several of my friends! Thank you MRLA!"

Delivering results with social media ads

"Our goal was simple. To increase our brand awareness and drive more subscribers to our Youtube channel. We’ve worked with Johnny on a strategy, and concluded that Reddit was the best platform to run paid ads on due to the large crypto community. We now have an active campaign with MRLA Media, and we are gaining on average 100 subscribers a day due to the incredible marketing strategy implemented by Johnny. He takes care of everything while we sit back and focus on what’s important with our channel."

From a networking mixer to a headshot session

"Johnny La is the kindest photographer you'll meet. Hands down.

I was fortunate to have met Johnny at a Networking mixer at USC. I got his business card from and knew right away that I wanted to work with him.

I contacted Johnny not long after for new actor's headshots. Even before the day of the shoot, he was always more than willing to answer the million and one questions I had for him. I sent him photos of potential outfits and he gave me feedback and provided me all the details & information I needed prior to the shoot.

I get pretty nervous in front of the camera, but on the day of the shoot, Johnny's friendly nature and silly methods to calm me down were quite helpful! Right away, he makes you feel as if you're old friends. I dread awkwardness, but I felt comfortable through the entire process. Additionally, he is more than willing to take as many shots needed until you're satisfied with your look.

After the shoot was over, he sent me all the files of my photos the same day so I could choose which looks I wanted him to edit. In just a matter of days after I had chosen which photos I wanted, Johnny send me over the final, edited photos, and they look great!

TL;DR: Looking for a photographer to take your headshots? Contact Johnny La ASAP!"
