This spot is nestled in the heart of Mission Viejo and runs along Oso Creek. Offering peaceful landscapes, the trail is lined with native plants and flowers. We love photographing engagement sessions and family photos here. There are lots of spots with interesting backdrops, foliage and charming bridges along the creek.  With 3 miles of beautiful paths, Oso Creek Trail has many picturesque opportunities around every corner. The path is painted with oak trees and greenery of all kinds including cacti which makes this spot so different from the rest. 
ENGAGEMENT SESSION TIP: Scheduling your session 6 to 8 months before your wedding is good timing for save the dates or invitations.

When we had to pivot from a destination wedding to a backyard elopement due to Covid-19, I had to pick a photographer with only a month's advance notice. Being Black and my husband white, I really wanted someone who would understand how to light us so that we both looked amazing. I immediately had a good feeling about Aja and Bairly Media and I am so happy we chose her to be our photographer. She was super communicative throughout the process before the wedding. On the day of, she showed up early to scout locations and she and her assistant were super professional. She made us feel so comfortable and had a predetermined list of shots, but also was able to go with the flow.  She sent us a sneak peek of about 15 photos the very next day and I knew we were going to have an amazing album. About two weeks later, we received our full album of about 250 photos. They are all amazing. Seriously. They are all frame-worthy and I don’t know how we’re going to decide which ones to do.  With all the chaos and uncertainty of trying to get married during a pandemic, she was such a god-send. I could not be happier!
