    Need Help: Engagement photos locations

    Hello,

    Need some advice. I will be getting married later this year in July and will be taking some engagement photos next week.

    I need some suggestions on where I should take pictures at. We are not beach people. Of course Disneyland is a choice but I would have to pay for the photographer admission to the park also.

    Any suggestions would be great!

    Thanks everyone!

    We did ours in Disneyland (Our photog is an APer)

    I would suggest somewhere like The Getty Center or Huntington Gardens (I forget the real name) - but you mgiht have to get permit at those places, I'm not sure? Someplace pretty!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I'm not sure where you are, but in the Los Angeles area, there's some beautiful gardens you could do your pictures at. With it being Spring and everything in bloom, these would be really nice:


    LA County Arobretum:
    Explore — Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden

    The Huntington Library:
    The Huntington Library

    The Japanese Gardens in Van Nuys:
    ~ The Japanese Garden ~ :: Tour the Garden

    Descanso Gardens:
    Descanso Gardens | Map of the Gardens

    Hope this helps a little....

    yeah. I always thought it was pretty just to sit in the grass, with some nice trees behind you. Simple, classic.

    Would you be willing to go up to Lake Arrowhead? There's pine trees galore, a beautiful lake and a ton of great areas for pictures.

    I went to a wedding there a couple of years ago and it was lovely.

    There is also a beautiful Japanese Garden at Cal State Long Beach. Go here to see a photo and read about it.

    We took our pictures up in Ferndale in Griffith Park. That was in 1980 and so am no longer sure what the area is like now.
