Historical spots in the Valley for your Quince pictures

Jose Francisco Sanchez

A good photographer can take advantage of any setting in order to capture stunning images. And in the San Fernando Valley,  your photos will definitely find amazing locations for your Quince pictures.

The city is full of parks, lakes, botanical gardens as well as country clubs. You can also take advantage of the historical buildings in this region to make your Quinceanera stand out while displaying some of the area’s cultural heritage. “The perfect place for this type of photo shoot is the San Fernando Mission, a historical place with a great family tradition,” says Maritza Clemente from Maritza Photography and Video. This Spanish mission dates back to 1797 and currently functions as a museum. The mission is located at 15151 San Fernando Mission Blvd., Mission Hills, CA. “Quinceaneras can reserve the interior building for their photo shoot,” assures Maritza.

The great thing about San Fernando Valley is that is has many places that are authentic jewels of the colonial era of the region, most of which are kept in great condition. If you have time and are considering that area, check out our suggestions below and feel free to recommend some of these sites to your photographer.

Andres Pico Adobe Park is a ranch that was built in 1834 and restored in 1930. It’s now a museum that’s open to the public and can be rented for special occasions.

Chatsworth Community Church was built in 1903 and is now a  historical monument. It’s not a building from the colonial era but was built in a distinguishable English style like some of the churches in California. The green, outdoor areas and façade provide a magnificent backdrop for a unique and original photo shoot.
