Photo shoot Los Angeles?

We are doing our Engagement Photo Shoot in June. I was originally thinking the Huntington Gardens in Pasadena or the Arboretum in Santa Anita, but they both charge per person to get in and close before 5pm and our photo session starts at 4:30pm no earlier.


Any suggestions close to these locations?

I think the arboretum charges a fee if you take your pics there too.  Not sure about Huntington Gardens but I would check first.

I went to Alverno High School up the road in Sierra Madre & their grounds are beautiful.  they do all kind of movie shoots there.  It looks like an old Italian Villa with large sections of lawns.  I don't know if they would charge anything but you can call them or look on their website.  Alverno is on Michillinda Ave just north of Sierra Madre Blvd.  Sierra Madre has some really pretty parks too & is known for old wisteria vines but not sure when they bloom.  Huntington does charge admission.  Descanso Gardens in La Canada is also very pretty.

Thanks bettybooboo. Do you know if Descanso Gardens charge? I'm going to look it up. I've been stressing so much because I can't find anything I like.

These locations is not exactly near Pasadena or Arcadia but it is beautiful.  How about the Cabrillo Park by the Korean Bell in San Pedro or by the lighthouse in Long Beach?

sorry so long to reply re: Descanso - i haven't logged in lately.  I don't know what they charge, but my sister took her wedding photos there in the mid-80s and they were beautiful.  Have you picked a spot?

I am considering Alverno High School but I haven't got a chance to check it out in person yet. But Lacy Park looks nice too. I think I will have to swing by and take a look.... Thanks ;)

We did Union Station and we also went to downtown Claremont near the village and the old Packing House.  We loved it!
