About Wonderland Studios

Wonderland Studios OC aims to be the one stop destination for photographers, models, stylists, and designers alike who seek a unique and affordable location to bring their photographic creativity to life. Why settle for yet another, claustrophobic and sterile white space when you can escape to Wonderland! Conceptualized by renowned corset and costume designer Cheri Wilson Chagollan, Wonderland offers a distinctly different vision of a photography studio from the perspective of female designers. We offer a variety of backdrops and props, from simple to extravagant, paired with a full array of lighting equipment to suit most photographers’ needs.
