Do I need to purchase a photography permit

Photography in the Parks

"Photography" applies to both still photography AND video/filming
Note: A Wedding Ceremony Permit
includes a photography permit for the wedding site.

While informal, candid photography in the parks is free, a photography permit applies to each of the following:

  • Wedding Photography
  • Formal School and Graduation Photography
  • Any other photography session that uses The Domes or the Boerner Botanical Gardens as a backdrop for pictures requiring special attire
  • Photography used in the stream of commerce requires a Commercial Photography Permit.
