12 best photography spots in Los Angeles

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of photographing my gorgeous bestie, Kat. I took her to one of my favorite locations to shoot: Melrose Place. And she’s never been to Alfred’s Coffee, so we’re really killing two birds with one stone here ;)

Melrose Place is a far quieter and less crowded location in contrast to the typical bustling LA. It’s also really, really cute. Melrose Place is essentially a small strip of high-end shops, filled with prettiness at every corner. And during the golden hour (approx. 5-6pm) the photos turn out extra crisp and beautiful. Today on the blog, I am not only sharing the result of our Melrose Place shoot but a list of my favorite places to shoot in LA. Let me know if you have any questions :)
