I love photographing couples in Chinatown downtown LA. The pagoda-style buildings with red lanterns are perfect for an instagram background. You can also find other spots for photos. Like in front of one fo the many traditional Chinese restaurants, dim sum houses or bakeries. Just take a stroll with us up and down the streets and we will lead you to the best places.
This unique engagement location attracts young couples looking for something off the beaten path.
Nearby you will find the historic Union Station and Olvera st. Both great engagement locations on their own or pair with each other. Keep in mind you will need a permit if you want engagement portraits at the Union Station.
Early morning is less busy. Sunset time is a good if you are willing to deal with the crowds. Summertime is busier than Fall or Spring time.
No permit required
