Just a little thought here on some great spots for wedding photos in the Los Angeles area:
1. Pasadena City Hall
One of my favorites, and favorite with many locals, is the Pasadena City Hall. You may need a permit, so do check. I ran across this blog about a photo shoot at Pasadena City Hall and the photos were stunning. Take a look here:

2. Korean Friendship Bell
Located in San Pedro, the Korean Friendship Bell is a popular spot for weddings, as well as wedding photographs. See more at my post: http://californiaweddings.blogspot.com/search/label/San%20Pedro%20wedding
3. Griffith Park Observatory
Many interesting spots to take great wedding photos, with great views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign.
4. Eaton Canyon Natural Area Park
Located in Northeast Pasadena, Eaton Canyon Natural Area Park is a wonderful and cost-effective place for events, as well as a spectacular place for wedding photographs. You may need a permit, so do check.
5. Descanso Gardens
Located in La Canada/Flintride, the Descanso Gardens provides many different beautiful spots for wedding photographs, including the Main Lawn, Feather Falls and Japanese Garden. Those not having their weddings at Descanso Gardens can still have their wedding photos taken there, but will have to pay a fee of $250 for 1-10 people for two hours. The price goes up with a larger number of people.
6. Whittier Narrows
Whittier Narrows is a 400-acre sanctuary of riparian woodland featuring four lakes, which makes for some very nice wedding photos. You will need a permit for wedding photos.
