Thank you for your interest in reserving a Photography Session at Mission San Juan Capistrano. Please complete this online form to request a reservation. 

Please note, reservations are required at least one week in advance. However, due to limited photo shoots allowed per hour, we highly recommend booking more than one week out. Reservations requested with less than one weeks notice will be subject to a $75 late booking surcharge.

Reservations can be made every day of the week between 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (last time slot is 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.) We are closed to the public on Mondays, however photography reservations are permitted. 

Please be aware that submission of this form does not guaranty a hold for the specified date and time. Once your request is submitted, a staff member from the Bookings Department will follow up with you within 2 working days to confirm availability and/or provide an alternate date choice for your photo shoot. Once we have confirmed that we have a copy of the photographer’s insurance on file, we will then follow up with an invoice to complete your reservation with full payment.
