Guidelines for Photography Sessions

  • Bookings are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. It is suggested that bride and groom bring their permit and visit the Garden a week or two before the photo session to see what's blooming and select a location.
  • Fee: $300 for up to 20 people. The fee is nonrefundable.
  • Sessions must be scheduled to occur within the following hours:
    April–September, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
    October–March, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Each session is 45 minutes; a security guard escort is provided to ensure that the session is not disrupted and to enforce the time limit.
  • Session limits are enforced; it is suggested that the wedding party arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to avoid losing scheduled session time getting ready.
  • No indoor photos are allowed.
  • If the session is rained out, a rain date will be given. The rain date is good for one calendar year from the date on your permit.
  • No food is allowed.
  • For more information, please call 718-623-7220.
