Great locations in L.A. for an engagement photo shoot? Bonus for unconventional or indoor suggestions.

My fiance and I are having some professional photos of us taken right after Christmas while we're visiting family. Our photographer is also from out of town and not super familiar with the area, whereas I grew up in L.A., so she's relying on us to help set the scene.
We're not beachy people, so sunset smooching in the sand has been categorically ruled out, but we've had a lot of ideas for other outdoor-ish locations (Huntington Library, Griffith Observatory, the Getty). Because it's December, however, it occurred to me that we might want a contingency plan in case of rain, and that's where I come up a little short. And because it's December, I thought it might be fun to take advantage of some nice holiday decorations if they're around, but we definitely don't want the finished photos to scream "CHRISTMAS!" We're not looking to get quintessential shots of the downtown skyline, Hollywood sign, or anything like that; we just want some nice pictures of us in a cool setting.
