WOLLAM GARDENS PHOTOGRAPHY

From the budding promise of spring to the lush fields of summer and the muted colors of autumn, each season has a different look and feel, but there are always dozens of places on the farm to capture beautiful shots! It’s important to understand, however, that we are a working farm, not a botanical garden. In addition to flowers and beautiful vistas, you’ll see the nuts and bolts of a farming operation. We encourage you to visit the farm before booking a professional photo shoot to ensure that it meets your expectations, and/or book a photographer who is familiar with it…one of our favorite collaborators is now booking a limited number of sessions in May (see below).

For commercial photography a small site fee is charged based on the number of participants. To book a time slot please read the details and fill out the application form at the bottom of the page. There is no fee for non-commercial photography. You are welcome to explore any of the Wollam Gardens public areas from Monday - Thursday. Email us events@wollamgardens.com with any further questions!

SPRING BLOOM SESSIONS

Join us for the first photo collaboration between Seana Shuchart Photography & Wollam Gardens!

We are opening the farm to families, couples, and individuals interested in professional outdoor portraits! Spring Bloom sessions will be photographed on the farm by Seana, a talented local photographer who specializes in natural outdoor photography. We will be hosting sessions here on the farm the weekend of May 18-19 in the early mornings and late evenings. Sessions will use a variety of sweet, blooming spots on the farm for backdrops including our lush flower rows, greenhouses, wooden barn and beautiful flowering bushes.

Spring at the farm is filled with sweet-smelling white and pastel blooms including Viburnum, Abelia, Sweet Peas, Snapdragons, Ranunculus and more – the perfect setting for family portraits and Mother’s Day gifts!

Handmade flower crowns and boutonnieres are available to wear during sessions. Click here to purchase.
