We are pleased to welcome individuals to photograph the beautiful views in our Botanic Gardens with their personal cameras.
If you are a commercial or professional photography, filming or videotaping is also encouraged, and is subject to our policies and fee schedule.
Photography at the Botanic Gardens for media and commercial photographers is $75 per session. If you have more than one client on the same day, a session fee is required for each client. You must schedule a time at least one week ahead. You will be given a pass for your appointed time, which should be worn in full view while shooting and returned after the shooting. The photography and videography guidelines outlined here include all wedding, family, engagement, prom, graduation, holiday, children or similar events and situations. Those who have rented the facility for a function may take photographs during their rental time at no additional fee. Please review our Rental Policy document for more information and our etiquette guidelines.
