What a gem! I really love this venue for engagement photos. The grounds are kept nice for a really scenic look. The citrus is such a lovely backdrop for a great California-themed engagement session.
All you have to do is pay $5 for parking. I searched all over the website to see if they had a photography fee, and nada! I pulled up into the parking lot and was worried when the park ranger approached me, but when I said I was there to take some photos of my friends, he wasn't phased at all, but made sure I paid for my parking and that I was aware that the park closed at 5pm. He was very nice and pleasant!
The time that the park closes is my only qualm. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the sunset which wouldn't be until ~8pm, but that's okay. Next time, I'll see about going on a weekend.
