Photography in the Gardens of Bayou Bend
Are you an amateur photographer? The Bayou Bend gardens provide a unique opportunity! Explore the grounds of the 14-acre estate to capture the beautiful blooms, gorgeous woodlands, and formal landscapes through your own lens. Please note the guidelines below.
Admission to the gardens is $7.50 for adults; $6 for seniors (65+) and students with ID; and $5 for ages 10–18. Children 9 and younger are admitted free.
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).
