Photography & Filming

Personal Use Photography

We encourage guests to take informal photographs or videos for their personal use and enjoyment as long as they stay on the paths and do not disturb the plants. Personal use photography equipment is limited to camera phones, tablets, or a camera with an attached flash. Tripods, standalone flashes, and drones are prohibited.

Garden Policies

We ask that you follow our Garden policies to ensure a safe, enjoyable visit for all guests. Guests who do not comply with these policies may be asked to leave the Garden.

Photographer & Videographer Permits

A permit is necessary for those who wish to use the Garden’s setting as the background for any Special Occasion Photography, commercial media, or any other posed photography or videos. 

A photography permit covers the photographer’s or videographer’s admission into the Garden, as well as one assistant photographer or videographer. At each visit, all photographer or videographer guests (clients) are subject to general admission or a Group Photography fee.

Annual Photography Memberships can be purchased online. One-Day Permits can be obtained by filling out our form and turned into our Guest Experience Team on the day of your photo session.

Any group photography sessions or weddings must turn their permit into their Events Coordinator at the Garden at least three days before the photo session.
