Occasionally, I visit a location and think to myself ” This would be an AMAZING place for a photo shoot!” One of these such places is the Griffith Observatory. There are gorgeous views and a variety of clean yet interesting backgrounds. Not to mention, the Griffith Observatory is a classic Los Angeles landmark.
The ideal time to go to the Griffith Observatory for portraits is in the morning before they open. Before opening there is a greater likelihood that you won’t get crowds of people in your shots. And when I say morning shoot, I really mean a SUNRISE shoot! Light is at its most gorgeous 2 hours after sunrise and 2 hours before sunset. So the ideal time ( for this season) would be between 7:30am and 9:30am in the morning. So this shoot would be perfect for early risers and morning people!
Here are some images from my scouting trip. Please insert yourself here:
Insert couple and this image would be wall canvas status!
If you are interested in a photo session at Griffith Observatory and don’t mind waking up early, please contact me to set up a session! If you do mind waking up early, contact me anyway and we will make it work or we can always go to another location of your choosing.
