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. "

"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."

Headshots that rock

"Johnny was GREAT. He was able to help me relax, identify what looked good and what didn’t look as good and he created a successful set of professional headshots. Further, it did not cost a rent check! He is timely, thoughtful, professional, and truly knows what he is doing. Hands down I’d recommend Johnny La (MRLA Media) to my friends and associates."

The help that was needed to launch a child care website

"Johnny has truly been amazing with helping me create such an incredible website, something that I have been wanting to do myself for the past few years but have never gotten to it. I’ve always thought that making a website is time consuming but just never knew how to start and where to start. But creating a website is actually harder and more time consuming than you think! It’s not easy at all but Johnny really made it a breeze for me, working with me day and night through each step and was there for me every step of the way. He made the whole process seamless and really created a dream come true by piecing each piece to my puzzle. He started from scratch and now we have our own website. He walked me through every single step and was always there to answer my questions and made sure to not overwhelm me. It was a scary process but then soon it became fun for me as well. It’s just so happy for me as a business owner to witness the website come together as a whole! It has been such a great pleasure working with Johnny and I highly recommend him to anybody who is looking for a professional website to be built! He did such a wonderful job and I can’t believe how quickly everything came together. Johnny has all the tools, is knowledgeable, and fun to work with! It’s hard to find someone you can trust nowadays!"

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!"
