Bring along your favorite photographer and join us for Photography Days to get the most out of your photo experience at the Botanical Gardens! We are opening up the Botanical Gardens for the public to take family photos, engagement shoots, senior portraits, maternity photos, baby photos or photos of any special occasion at a reduced rate. 

Our Photography Policy (below) will apply during your reservation. Please keep in mind that Photography Days provide a shared space and you must be respectful of other guests.

KEEP IN MIND! As the sun begins to set in the fall and winter, the Botanical Gardens conservatory will also lose daylight as we are an open glass greenhouse. We will be providing our house lights to create a lovely experience during sunset, but please keep this in mind as both a photographer or model as you may need to utilize different camera settings. 

If you would like to take posed photography outside of these days and times, a Photography rental reservation is required. To inquire, please contact
