Private Events


Non-professional photography shoots with a group of five people or less are free to the public from 1 pm -4:30 pm in the backyard, garden paths, native gardens and orchard. Please call ahead for any events the Rancho may be hosting that day. Those who would like to book a professional photography shoot that use a professional photographer, props, and costume changes are asked to donate a $135/hour. A professional shoot will allow the parties involved to utilize more areas of the Rancho during public and non-public hours. Professional shoots are to be pre-arranged with our development department. For any photo shoot with a group of 5 people or more must contact Rancho Los Cerritos for  site availability.
