Terranea Resort Engagement Session in Rancho Palos Verdes

July 22, 2021

Michelle and Kevin came down to Rancho Palos Verdes last December, and we decided to do their engagement photos at the beautiful Terranea Resort. It was my first time visiting the resort, and I was stunned by how gorgeous it is! The oceanfront villas feature Spanish architecture surrounded by palm trees and manicured walkways, with views of the sea all around. Trails lead down to Terranea Beach on one side, and you can catch an amazing view of the sunset from the bluffs on the other side of the resort.

The resort also had some adorable Christmas decorations set up closer to the villas, and the vibe of the place was quiet and calm. If you want to take engagement photos at Terranea Resort, I would definitely recommend coming in off-season like we did to avoid crowds! There were still a decent amount of people down on the beach, but not so many that we couldn’t shoot around them.

This place will definitely be added to my list of favorites, so if you’re getting married here, I’d love to hear from you!


Hello! Where exactly on the resort is that Spanish looking staircase with the flower pots next to them? Looks amazing.

It was on the west side of the main building that houses the lobby and front desk!
