Photographs are a wonderful way to remember your visit to Rotary Botanical Gardens. We encourage visitors to take casual photographs for their own personal use, and share with us on our social media pages. While the Photography Guidelines outlined in the policy are intended for all guests, a permit is necessary only for those who wish to use the Gardens as the background for posed photography.
Posed Photography includes but is not limited to wedding, family, engagement, graduation, senior photos, quinceanera and the like (see *Photography and Videography Policy).
Please note, the photographer does not need to be a professional. It is the responsibility of the photographer or videographer to complete the permit form. This form may be completed upon arrival, or found here, completed and brought with you the day of your photo session. If you are unsure of whether or not a photographer’s fee applies to you, please consider:
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then a photographer’s permit applies to you and your guests. If you have a question regarding the nature of your visit, please contact our Event Coordinator by phone at 608.314.8408 or email.
Wedding ceremonies, receptions or other special occasions that have rented space at the Gardens are welcome to take their photographs during their rental time at no additional fee. As always, the Photography Guidelines apply.
