A photography permit is required for any type of portrait photography in the Conservatory or Sunken Garden (the area within the fence). This includes, but is not limited to photos for weddings, engagements, prom, maternity, senior, or families. 


Photo permits are subject to availability and booked first come, first served at the Conservatory front desk. Scheduling permits in advance is highly recommended, walk-in availability is extremely limited. We do not book them online. Photo permit policies have recently changed, please read the above document "2019 Photo-Video Permit Info" for details.





Commercial photography/videography is not allowed in the Conservatory or Sunken Garden, but you can obtain a permit for other areas in the park. Click the "Email Us" button below to submit a commercial photo or video inquiry.
