Photography Guidelines in the Gardens

We cannot stress enough the fragile nature of our plant collection. We need you to stay on our paths and act with great care. Thankfully, most people respect our work and appreciate this special nature sanctuary. However, we have had some issues with the rare unscrupulous photographer who ignores our rules in order to get a photograph. This section will help both the professional and amateur photographer understand our expectations. We also encourage you to leave a donation to help us with the continued upkeep of this special place.

General photography: We do allow photography by visitors. Please review our Garden Rules before you proceed.

Prom photography: We do allow this. However, please review our Garden Rules before you visit.

Professional photographers and videographers:
(Photographers being paid by clients; people taking pictures for ads or media; people taking pictures for their businesses or organizations, etc.)
