There are too many locations in Southern California and it’s not easy to choose for your own locations. I’d like to share my tips for selecting yours.

1. Due to Woolsey fire in Malibu, roads and places are closed. Please avoid all the locations in Malibu at this moment and I will update this page after it’s recovered from damaged or destroyed structures.

2. Less travel and spend more time on a location

The given time from your contact includes with transit time between locations, so if you spend time in transit, you would get less pictures as a result. Even if it’s still a short distance, still needs looking for a parking spot and walking to the point where we shoot.

3. Private location is better than a crowd of people

If you consider shooting at popular locations such as Griffith Observatory, Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive, popular streets etc., please keep in mind that we have to wait until backgrounds to clear, so no strange people on your images which are impossible in certain situations. Also, another reason is taking engagement picture is to show your emotions in front of my camera, but in a crowded public places it’s not easy to express naturally.
