Photography

We highly recommend you bring your camera! Photographs are a wonderful way to remember your visit to Chase Garden. We encourage visitors to take casual photographs for their own personal and noncommercial use.   Please note garden etiquette and do not step on plants or stand in beds to capture your photos.

Photographers taking photographs that will be used to promote Chase Garden in legitimate travel publications (travel, garden magazines, etc.) will not be required to pay a fee IF THE GARDEN IS CREDITED. This applies in most circumstances but not all. For exceptions please contact the Chase Garden Director at ltaylor@gardenconservancy.org.

Professional Photography:

Formal, photography would include weddings (that do not take place at the Chase Garden), reunions, engagements, proms, graduations and senior photos. Formal, posed photographs may only be taken in the outdoor garden areas. A Photography agreement must be submitted and approved prior to the photography session. Photography Agreement

Fees:

A $25 scheduling fee will be collected, and must be pre-paid for each one hour session, in addition

to Chase Garden’s admission fees for each person participating in the photo session. The scheduling fee is non-refundable. In the event of adverse weather, you may reschedule your session. Please note: The house is not available as a changing or staging area.

Scheduling: Your formal, posed photography session must be scheduled at least one week in advance and will be scheduled during Chase Garden’s open hours unless prior arrangements are made with the garden Director. Portraits must conclude and participants ready to leave by closing time.
