about

My name is Vangie Ogg (pronounced VAN-jee AHG). 

I'm an award-winning portrait and headshot photographer in West Los Angeles. 

My job as photographer began right out of college, when the really cool people were wearing parachute pants and breakdancing to Ice Ice Baby. True story. 

Probably on repeat on my Spotify playlist: anything by Prince, classical guitar solos, and danceable tracks on the pop charts. As a lifelong Angeleno, I'm emotionally invested in the outcome of every Dodger game. (Go, Blue!) If  you follow my silly Instagram feed and stories, you are likely to come across photos of food and cocktails I'm currently sampling, and daily adventures with my sweet Chihuahua-Min Pin, Harley. I can't help it.

My most important gig to date? Raising two sons with my tech genius slash expert team builder husband. These guys are my everything. 

Thank you for reading this far into my bio. I would love to work with you soon!


Like many people, I don’t like to have my picture taken. Vangie immediately put me at ease and made the experience enjoyable. I would go to her again when I need a professional photo.

”Vangie is delightful and great to work with. She made me feel comfortable and gave me good advice as to which of my clothes worked for the head shot, which I appreciated. She took a lot of photos and narrowed it down to the best 25 or so, which was helpful so I wouldn’t be overwhelmed with choices. She was accommodating with scheduling the shoot as well. I am very happy with the photos she took and was very happy with my experience with Vangie.”

Vangie is amazing! Extremely professional and personable. She put me at ease immediately. The headshots she took in a short window of time are some of the best I’ve ever had. On par with some of the most sought-after photographers out there. Will definitely work with her again!
