Let me tell you... If you have any doubts about this beautiful home and backyard... don't! This is by far in my top 2 homes of all time for outside look and inside (even though we didn't shoot interior). This is the most beautiful home and wonderful host we've ever had the pleasure to work with! We will definitely be working again with Brandi in the near future ;)

The studio is great I would go back anytime Steve made us feel very welcome kudos for that. The space is great lots of dept on the cyc to shoot we had a blast getting all of our shots really made it easy. Restrooms are nice and clean along with the rest of the place. Loading and unloading is really simple through the back entrance where the cyc is located. Overall its a great place to shoot I definitely recommend it to anyone who is shooting.

This studio is incredibly organized and well-equipped for a variety of shoot needs. Steve was helpful and accommodating and everything went smoothly for us. He also has a nice array of lighting to rent if needed. Will definitely be using this resource in the future.

Pros and Cons of Photo Shoot Venues in Costa Mesa

The pros and cons of photo shoot venues in Costa Mesa aren’t a long list but are serious enough that you should consider them before booking.


  • The Weather
    There’s a reason that legions of people head to California each year, or already call it home. The weather in Costa Mesa is semi-arid and this makes it a great place to live and work.

  • Safe City
    Costa Mesa is a safe city, and this is an obvious advantage when crime rates seem to be rising throughout the world. It consistently ranks high on the safety ratings and that makes it pleasant to work in or to head off on a night out after spending the day on a photo shoot.

  • Art Scene
    Costa Mesa transformed itself from an agricultural community to a vibrant city with many artists and art galleries. The cultural experiences aren’t limited to art, and there is truly something for everyone that visits.


  • Flood Risk
    The proximity to the Pacific Ocean (less than three miles) means that Costa Mesa is in a flood zone and experts agree that the city will have flooding incidents in the future. These should be avoidable if you’re paying attention to weather reports and local news.

  • Costly
    Costa Mesa is more costly than other cities, which means you’ll need to increase your budget slightly before booking your photo shoot here. The city’s many advantages drive prices up, but the saying is true, you get what you pay for.

  • Congested
    Of course, the popularity of California, and Costa Mesa, in particular, increases the number of people here, leading to further congestion. You’ll find the streets, restaurants, and other areas a bit more crowded. Book your space early and plan accordingly for more congestion when moving around the city.

Famous Locations in Costa Mesa

  • Sculpture Tour at South Coast Plaza
    The Costa Mesa Art Walk includes over 20 pieces of art throughout the city and seeing them can be a time commitment. Instead, start with the sculpture tour at South Coast Plaza. You can enjoy the architecture of the plaza while viewing 12 pieces of art, from a stained-glass dome to the Jonah and the Whale sculpture and fountain.

  • TeWinkle Park
    TeWinkle Park is a favorite picnic location in Costa Mesa. It boasts 49 acres of green space and features picnic tables, barbecues, tennis and basketball courts, natural water, and more. The park is named for Charles TeWinkle, the first mayor of the City of Costa Mesa.

  • Diego Sepulveda Adobe
    The Diego Sepulveda Adobe invites visitors to step back in time and view the history of Costa Mesa over the past 200 years. It’s located within Estancia Park, another favorite location in the city, and celebrates the Native Americans and others who are part of the fabric of the city’s history.
