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 who wish to use Wellfield Botanic Gardens as a backdrop/setting for posed and commercial photography.
  • All portrait photography including, but not limited to baby photos, senior pictures, prom, quinceanera, engagement, family, graduation and wedding.
  • All photographs for any commercial use, even if the photographer is not a professional.

Daily Photography Permits are $75; this includes admission for the photographer, plus 2 guests (a $24 value). Annual Photography Memberships (valid for 1 year and include unlimited visits) are available for $250. The annual membership includes admission for the photographer and 4 guests per visit (a $40 value per visit). Additional guests in your party will be charged general admission, unless they are members of Wellfield.
