Book a Photographer at the Griffith Observatory

The Observatory is the best vantage point for observing the world-famous Hollywood Sign. The most popular hiking trail leads to the top of the hill where you will find a scenic view of Los Angeles, Downtown and the Hollywood sign itself. This is the perfect location for lifestyle, love story, family, or individual photography.  Book a photo shoot and I’ll walk you through a variety of locations and options to choose from near the Observatory and on their territory itself.

Prices start at $150 USD for a 30-minute shoot

Choose between my personal route or create your own! Each route usually starts at the top of the Observatory but can move in any direction you want. We will take the tour around the Observatory itself and nearby locations, including the Hollywood sign view.

Griffith is best known for the Los Angeles overlook view and Hollywood sign & hills view, which is perfect for lifestyle and romantic couples photoshoots. My goal is to make sure you get the best pictures that you want and to guide you along the way.

Happy Customers Make Me Happy

Masha is a highly skilled photographer and with the beautiful backdrop of South Beach at twilight you can't go wrong! My daughter booked Masha to get some professional social media photos on our vacation. She is thrilled with the results! Masha creates a relaxed atmosphere and knew exactly how to guide Lauren in poses that looked natural and one-of-a kind.

Maria

Knowledgeable about her craft, very friendly and approachable AND very accommodating. I can't recommend Masha enough. (She took absolutely stunning photos of me)
