The San Juan Capistrano Mission is a beautiful site with a rich historical significance that makes it a wonderful location for an engagement session. The mission epitomizes the Spanish influence that is so prevalent in our Southern California landscape, both in its architecture and the story of its Colonial founders who hoped to spread Catholicism in the region. Its current caretakers hope it now provides all visitors with a place for respite, inspiration and spiritual reflection...things a couple about to be married might wish to experience in the months leading up to the big day.
Due to the landmark's age, the structural makeup is fragile and requires great care, which is why a permit must be obtained to shoot there, as well as proof of insurance submitted. When researching a location for an engagement shoot, it's important to find out the ins and outs of what it takes to gain access. As experienced photographers, we can provide insight into some of the most sought after destinations in SoCal and beyond.
