Photographers must agree not to publish or sell their photos for profit and must not disturb other guests. No lighting equipment, tripods, or monopods are permitted. Photography is limited to still images and does not include filming or video. "Photography in the Gardens" is intended for images of the garden spaces themselves and may not be used for engagement and bridal photography, or for commemorative photos of events not related to Bayou Bend (such as anniversaries or quinceañaras). Any accompanying guests dressed in costume-style clothing—including, but not limited to, gowns, Easter outfits, etc.—may or may not be admitted, at the discretion of Bayou Bend staff.
