The LA Arboretum is a very large venue. There are a few areas where you can hold your ceremony and reception. We have shot many engagement sessions here and a handful of weddings.

The Los Angeles River and Gardens in Los Angeles - In the heart of LA!
The LA River and Gardens venue is a hidden gem. Located near the well known Los Angeles River and provides a very welcome feel as you are surrounded by ivy covered walls. The gates and fountain are a local favorite for couples for their photos. Having grown up in this area as a child it is a favorite of mine. It has been over 5 years since we have captured an event here and cannot wait to be back.
