Whether you are the photographer or the subject, Mobile Botanical Gardens is a beautiful location for capturing special moments! Please review our photography policy below and if you are interesting in booking a time at the Gardens, fill out the Photography Inquiry form and our Photographer in Residence, Elizabeth Gelineau, will be in touch to answer questions and assist with scheduling. 

Do I need a photo permit?

  • Is the primary purpose of your visit to capture photos of your family or group?
  • Are you wearing formal attire/costume/wedding attire?
  • Will a photographer (professional or hobbyist) be accompanying you to take the photos?

If you answered “YES” to any one of these questions, you must have a paid photo permit.
