Photo Reservations

Portrait & Special Occasion Photography


While visitors are welcome to take informal cellphone and in-the-moment photographs of the Gardens, all portrait photography and commercial shoots require a reservation and fee. Airlie Members must make a reservation (fee waived one time for Magnolia and Azalea Members).

Portrait photography includes, but is not limited to: bridal, family, engagement, maternity, quinceañera, graduation, prom; as well as, formal or event-specific attire, the use of props, an arranged photographer (amateur or professional), a change of clothing, or other situations determined by staff.
