Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
It might be legal here to tape her in a public place but the person here has to be careful in California as the law is very strict in private situations that two parties must consent.You would be better off hiring this done rather than risk being charged yourself with wrongful taping.
Reference to the law
California's wiretapping law is a "two-party consent" law.California makes it a crime to record or eavesdrop on any confidentialcommunication, including a private conversation or telephone call,without the consent of all parties to the conversation. See Cal. Penal Code § 632.The statute applies to "confidential communications" -- i.e.,conversations in which one of the parties has an objectively reasonable expectation that no one is listening in or overhearing the conversation. See Flanagan v. Flanagan, 41 P.3d 575, 576-77, 578-82 (Cal. 2002). A California appellate court has ruled that this statute applies to the use ofhidden video cameras to record conversations as well. See California v.Gibbons, 215 Cal. App. 3d 1204 (Cal Ct. App. 1989).
Public taping in public place would probably be ok as the law states above.
