Our Approach

We use a transparent, flat-fee approach to keep our services within reach and help customize your project to match your budget. Whether you need a single eye-catching image for an upcoming campaign or a monthly social media-strategy package, we have something to fit your needs.

Our Team

Founded by creative director Diana Yen, A LA CARTE works strategically with our clients and offers over a decade of experience in the food industry ranging from leading food-media publications to F&B and lifestyle brands. We work closely with our clients to highlight their brand values, guiding them through the process to turn ideas into powerful visual experiences.


We prioritize our involvement in the food community. As strong supporters of food education and farming, we offer flexible rates for food-media publications, farms, and nonprofit organizations. We'd like to use our strength as visual storytellers to share knowledge and inspire others towards positive change.

Our studio is located in sunny Ojai, California, where produce is grown mindfully with love and care for the environment. By sourcing fresh ingredients, we aim to highlight the best finds from local farms for our photo shoots whenever possible.
