Are you an amateur photographer? The Bayou Bend gardens provide a unique opportunity! Explore the grounds of the 14-acre estate to capture wonderful views of nature through your own lens, from beautiful blooms and gorgeous woodlands to lovely formal landscapes. 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 photos for profit and must not disturb other guests. No lighting equipment, tripods, or monopods. Photography is limited to still images and does not include filming or video. This event is for images of the garden spaces themselves and not for engagement and bridal photography, nor for commemorative photos of events not related to Bayou Bend, such as anniversaries or quinceañaras.
