LA is SIMPLY's home base, which means it holds a special place in all our hearts. It is the sight of our SIMPLY LA Conference, after all! For all of you LA bloggers out there, we wanted to share some of our favorite local hotspots that make for perfect photo shoot backdrops. 

These Los Angeles neighborhoods are full of adorable shops, buildings, and restaurants, meaning they're great places to head for the day and capture weeks of content at once! Here are 5 of our top favorites:

1. Melrose Avenue

Perhaps the most famous street in the world (and the most expensive, too!) there are so many iconic storefronts and buildings to pose in front of. Especially if you're rocking some sweet designer threads, you must head to the 90210.

Most Picturesque Spots: Barney's, the Louis Vuitton store, Alfred Coffee, Rodeo Drive Walk of Style


4. The Arts District

5. Pasadena

Venture out of LA proper to the charming landscape of Pasadena. There is so much gorgeous architecture in Pasadena, and chances are these backgrounds won't be as played out as some other LA hot spots.
