Known for its warm beaches, great surf, and unique artistic atmosphere, Venice Beach is a great spot in Los Angeles to have your engagement photography session. Start off at the famous Ocean Front-Walk, which is constantly teeming with artists, vendors, and every kind of street performer you could possibly imagine (and even some that you can't!) Have your engagement photographer capture all the excitement as you and your fiancee meet some of Venice Beach's most eccentric personalities, be they fire-eaters, roller-blading guitarists, or flaming-chainsaw jugglers!
Afterward, check out the famous Venice Canals, which run through some of Venice Beach's most affluent West Side neighborhoods. During the sixties, the modest flats surrounding the canals became home to Beat poets, artists, and even big name rock stars like Jim Morrison of The Doors. In the last several decades, the surrounding neighborhoods have been renovated, along with the canals. Have your engagement photographer take photos as you and your fiancee pose atop the miniature bridges that cross the canals, making for some wonderful, intimate engagement photos.
Finally, head over toward the beach and take a leisurely stroll through the sand with the warm Southern California water lapping at your feet. Eventually, you'll reach the Venice Fishing Pier, located along the southern portion of the beach. You and your fiancee can pose along the railing of the pier, with the glimmering waters of the Pacific Ocean serving as a backdrop. Your engagement photographer can also use the Ocean Front-Walk as background, with its mix of older brick, Art-Deco, and modern architecture.
You'll have an unforgettable time during your engagement photo shoot at Venice Beach!
Griffith Park is the second-largest municipal park in all of California and one of the Los Angeles' most picturesque locations for engagement photography. Set in the gorgeous Santa Monica Mountains, this 6 ' acre will provide you with everything you need for an amazing engagement photo shoot. Start off your excursion of Griffith Park at the magnificent Griffith Observatory. Take your time perusing the impeccably landscaped courtyard in the foreground of the building. The immaculate observatory, with its gigantic dome, will serve as a stunning backdrop for your engagement photos. The observatory's location, atop Mount Hollywood, also provides breathtaking views of the Los Angeles Basin, downtown LA, Hollywood, and the Pacific Ocean. Once you've finished at the observatory, head over to Griffith Park's renowned Greek Theatre, which has hosted concerts by world-famous artists ranging from The Who to Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney. Have your engagement photography take photos as you and your fiancee pose in the crimson seats, kick back on the white aisle steps, or embrace on the stage. Another fun location within the park is the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round, which will make add a playful touch to your engagement photography album. As you explore the trails of Griffith Park, you'll encounter a number of amazing vista points, as well as some beautiful statues, including busts of James Dean and Lief Ericson. You'll be blown away by all the incredible features that Griffith Park has to offer!
Another treasure located in the Santa Monica Mountains, the Getty Center is one of the most scenic and, thus, popular engagement photography spots in Los Angeles. Known for its elegant modern architecture, vibrant gardens, and heart-stopping views, the Getty Center's twenty-four acre campus will keep you and your photographer exploring for hours. Have your engagement photographer take some stunning photos in the exterior courtyard, constructed with warm, beige-colored Italian travertine stone. An eclectic collection of trees surrounds the courtyard, as well as some truly unique sparkling fountains. From the west side of the Getty campus, you and your fiancee can enjoy breathtaking views of the San Bernadino Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, as well as the Los Angeles skyline. The Getty Center also offers some of California's most beautiful gardens, which will make perfect settings for your engagement photo shoot. The Central Garden, at the heart of the Getty Center, contains a natural ravine, as well as a tree-lined walkway that will take you and your fiancee on a fantastic floral adventure. The walkway descends down to a plaza that contains a glimmering stone waterfall, at the bottom of which you'll find the floating azalea pool. Other unique gardens on the Getty campus include the exotic Cactus Garden, the tranquil Stream Garden, and the colorful Bowl Garden.
