I need ideas for my engagement photo session. Something besides the beach. We are willing to drive to LA or SD. I want the photos to have an old and classic background. Maybe some great architechture or hills in the background. Any ideas are more than welcome!

Balboa Park in San Diego has beautiful architecture and makes for beautiful engagement photos.

Is there a place that has special meaning to you? Does your photographer have ideas that fit your criteria?

does santa ana have an old town? i think i remember the architecture there being nice, (and the train station as well). also, how about san juan capistrano. GORGEOUS old town and the mission can provide a lot of interesting backgrounds.

Not sure if you’ve read the other threads on here asking for places. Here are some off the top of my head:
- Downtown Fullerton
- Laguna Beach (around the town)
- LA train station
- Long Beach (By the Queen Mary)
- Mission Inn (need permission)
- Griffith Observatory in LA

we did ours in Irvine Regional Park in Orange. Really big park with a lake, petting zoo and a train station.

Like Charm Bracelet said, if you look in the LA & OC boards, there are plenty of previous posts with suggestions for photo shoot locations.
We went to Point Fermin Lighthouse and the Korean Friendship Bell in San Pedro.
I’ve seen and loved engagement pix from the Fullerton Arboretum, the LB Aquarium, the Angel Stadium, Disneyland, Venice Boardwalk.
Good luck and have fun!

Wow! Thank you all so much! I am new to this site and really appreciate all the ideas. I’ll look at some older posts as well. It looks like my fiance and I have some driving around to do 🙂
