San Gabriel Mission
Just to the northeast of LA is the gorgeous and historic San Gabriel Mission, a fantastic spot for your engagement shoot full of unique backdrops that will inspire you for a creative session. Established in the late 18th century, the Mission is imbued with strong Moorish elements, including capped buttresses and tall windows. It’s unique even among other missions in California, and a perfectly romantic spot to find some beautiful backdrops for your session.
The Mission is fronted by a spreading green lawn and palm trees that shade its exterior, part of the simple but thoughtful landscaping that you’ll find on the grounds around the building. Walk underneath an arcade roofed with wood and supported with adobe, accented by green shoots of leaves at the base of the columns. On the grounds among the trimmed hedges, you’ll stumble across quiet alcoves decorated with religious relics and detailed landscaping. The Spanish fountains especially make a jaw-dropping detail that you’ll love as you explore this romantic destination for LA engagement photography.
With its fantastic architecture, interesting walls, doors, ornaments, and surrounding natural beauty, this spot is sure to inspire you both for a fantastic session. It’s an ideal spot for a dreamy shoot and you’ll leave with looks you love.
