A walk through Balboa Park is one of my low key favorites for an engagement shoot. As long as it’s on a weekday, you will have several opportunities for intimate photos, in popular locations, all to your self. Some of my favorite locations for a Balboa Park engagement would have to be the secret cactus garden, Japanese Friendship Garden, Alcazar Garden (when it’s blooming), and the gardens at Friends of Balboa Park. If you are looking for something unique and the Japanese Friendship Garden truly is incredible. It will set your romantic Balboa Park engagement session on fire. The best time to visit would be in the spring during the cherry blossom season. Keep in mind that engagement shoots at the garden will be a little pricier due to the admission fees and photography fee/license.
For this particular reportage Balboa Park engagement shoot, the couple had a few areas they liked, so the day prior I visited the park and mapped out a path that would highlight each area at the perfect time. I’ve lived around the park for a few years, and ride bikes there often. My boyfriend and I, have spent a lot of time scouring the area on our bikes searching for secret locations. There are many spots in and around Balboa Park that not many people are aware of, as most visitors stay centrally located where the museums and zoo are located. A few other locations that I love; palm canyon trail, Mingei International Museum, Casa del Rey Moro Garden, and the Spreckels Organ Pavillion. Balboa Park really is a great place and everything everyone says it is. It’s perfect for getting lost and exploring and has SO much to offer. So please enjoy this very romantic Balboa Park engagement.

A California based photographer keeping it real and capturing all the perfect moments. Hey! My name is Teresa. Between my large Sicilian family, crazy friends and animated boyfriend, I have a tremendous amount of nicknames. SO we will go with Teresa for now but feel free to get creative once we get to know each-other. I was born and raised on the Central Coast in the small town of Templeton, lived in LA during my early 20’s and then spent about 6 years in New York. I’m now back in CA and loving every moment. All I can say is sunshine and tacos, but I do miss bagels and pizza. I love to travel, be outside, cycle and discover new places, eat ice cream and enjoy a cheeseburger, french fries and an ice cold beer tremendously. I’m pretty damn normal, easy to be around and love to laugh around new company. If you are ready, I am ready. Let’s dive in! www.teresalojacono.com
