Rancho Valencia Engagement Photos : Lisa + Nico

On a recent warm evening, I had the honor of photographing Lisa and Nico's Rancho Valencia engagement photos!

Lisa and I have been friends for years and I'm so happy she found an amazing partner in Nico. Nico, who hails from England, is a former professional soccer player and a current assistant coach for the University of San Diego men's soccer team. It's been wonderful to pick his brain, as my daughter plays for a US Soccer Academy team and dreams of playing soccer in college.

Engagement Photos around Rancho Valencia Resort

Rancho Valencia is a perfect place for a photo shoot. Here's why:

  • Design: The look and feel fits perfect into the natural environment.
  • Privacy: The resort is very secluded so couples never feel like they're being watched by others.
  • Food and Beverage: The Pony Room is a great place to share an appetizer and drinks before or after the shoot!
As the late afternoon sun streams through the olive trees, Lisa and Nico take it in.
