Top 5 Instagramable Places in LA Starting with the Griffith Observatory

This past Sunday I spent the late afternoon taking pictures and taking in the beautiful golden hour sunset at The Griffith Observatory here in Los Angeles. This outdoor scenic view is one of the most breathtaking and iconic views of the LA landscape. I had the opportunity to shoot with a photographer new to Girl of an Era; Tim French. Tim shot these pictures on a Fuji X-T2 Camera and the colors in this blouse and backdrop really pop! I'm giving you my top favorite Insta worthy outdoor locations below! If you like poppy flowers, boho pillows, and beaches you better scroll down. Also this silky blouse is on sale right now in all sizes! Let the good times SCROLL! 

Top 5 Instagramable Locations in Los Angeles


The Ace Hotel in Downtown LA

This minimalist cool vibes hotel is located in the heart of Los Angeles. It is open to the public and has everything from a bar, outdoor seating, to an amazing rooftop view. It has so many Instagram worthy spots in one place. This outdoor space, the tile in the bar area, and a beautiful green tile bathroom that is perfect for a lipstick picture. 


The Griffith Observatory 

Well I'm already a little biased about the Griffith Observatory but can you blame me? Look at this view! It's a cultural building full of observations and a large planetarium. See the gorgeous view of the LA landscape and be sure to be there at golden hour.

Santa Monica Pier


If you love the beach like I do then Santa Monica is the perfect Saturday hangout. It has amusement park attractions, the sandy beach, and the prettiest sunset backdrops. I think it's the perfect location for a fun day at the beach for your friends or babe!

Antelope Poppy Reserve in Lancaster 

I can't tell you how excited I am to visit this poppy field in the spring! It looks so beautiful and will make for the most jaw dropping pictures. For those boho flower children out there this backdrop is for you! It's a bit of a drive; just two hours from LA but a day trip might be worth the drive.
