Lisa Sandler is a photographer, graphic designer, retoucher and artist. She lives and works a few miles from Venice Beach, CA, servicing the greater Los Angeles Area.
Lisa Sandler specializes in natural light lifestyle portraiture as well as Studio Portraits with lights and backdrops. Her photographic style is naturally posed, candid and photo-journalistic with an artistic eye. Lisa's photos often tell a story and clients catch her smiling behind her camera because she loves what she sees through the lens.
Lisa's job is not finished after the Portrait Session. She doesn't just click a button and hand you a disk. She uses her degree in graphic design combined with extensive experience in photo editing and retouching, to turn you into your best self and memories into art worth framing.
Lisa Sandler graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a degree in Graphic Design. She landed at Miramax Films as Creative Director of Print Advertising. Lisa was responsible for designing logos and art for movie posters, advertising campaigns and marketing materials. She also came up with concepts, sketchbooks and poses for photo shoots used in these materials, directing photographers as they photographed actors. Many of these pieces have become collectibles.
After over nine years of intense deadlines and crazy schedules, Lisa left Miramax and went out on her own, first as a design consultant for various film studios and ad agencies, then under her own company: Lisa Sandler Design. Lisa designed and produced custom wedding invitations, baby announcements, holiday cards, corporate logos, business cards and stationery and CD covers for musicians. At that time she also started doing portrait sessions for holiday cards, baby showers, weddings and events.
When Lisa moved to Los Angeles, she started doing more photography than design. Lisa still does design, but she loves her photography clients.
Lisa loves getting to know each of her clients and helping them create photographs that they will cherish for years to come. She feels fortunate that they invite her into their lives to observe and quietly capture their most precious moments. Each new client brings a new personality, spirit and joy that Lisa never ceases to fall in love with.
Whether you're celebrating a wedding, engagement, anniversary, pregnancy, your children's milestones, graduating seniors; sending out holiday cards, updating your head shots, hosting an event, performing in a live show, or want to do a personal boudoir shoot, Lisa would love to help capture your memories for you.
