Professional Photography

Wellfield Botanic Gardens provides an exceptional backdrop for professional photographers. Visitors are welcome to take photographs for personal use.  Personal photographs and videos are not to be used for commercial purposes.  We encourage you to share your photos on the Gardens’ Facebook page.

Professional/Commercial Photography Guidelines:

A photography permit and fee is necessary for those who wish to use the Gardens for commercial or portrait photography.  The photography permit applies to the following groups:

  • All portrait photography including, but not limited to baby photos, senior pictures, prom, quinceanera, engagement, family, graduation and wedding.
