Melissa and Justin started to plan their big day… they both wanted something rustic with a vintage and romantic feel. The Daley Ranch was the perfect fit. The 3,058-acre conservation area has natural vegetation communities including lush oak woodlands, coastal sage scrub and chaparral, grasslands, and riparian areas. Makes a wonderful backdrop for wedding images. We had such a great time taking some amazing pictures of Melissa and Justin. These two had a day filled with love, laughter and romance. We LOVE our job!!!

We thoroughly loved working at the Daley Ranch! Here’s what someone else thought:
“What a fantastic place for hiking or biking. As my husband and I entered the parking area, we were amazed at how full the parking lot and street were (we arrived at 8am on a Saturday).
We loved the fact that Daly Ranch is pet friendly. So on this hike we did have our 11 month old puppy. They do have areas where where they offer bags to pick up after your pet.
Now I only read that they have other trails to explore so we hope one day to explore those trails as well. Our group hiked the Boulder Loop Trail. You will start off on asphalt and once you reach the other trails it will lead into a dirt path.
The parking lot is not paved. As we were leaving a ranger was to be seen patrolling in the parking area.
The view from our hiking trail was breathtaking. A bonus on this hike was the amount of shade along the trail, provided naturally from the boulders and trees.
We look forward to returning to hike the other trails, but certainly wouldn’t mind doing Boulder Loop (2.5 miles) again.”
