On-site Photo Policy:

Shade Home & Garden maintains a strict policy against the use of its property (all interior spaces, exterior grounds, etc.) for unauthorized professional, amateur or commercial photography/videography purposes. All photo shoot requests must be made at least 24 hours in advance to the date of the requested shoot before they can be considered.

Photo Shoots for Professional or Amateur Photography:

Photo shoots must be arranged in advance, and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. A $25 site fee will be charged for all Family sessions, Engagement/Wedding sessions and Fashion sessions. All other photography will need to be approved, and may or may not be charged a site fee. We ask that if you are posting to social media such as Instagram, Facebook or a photography blog that Shade receives credit as the location. Please note, that if you have not received approval you will be asked to cease the photography session.

Videography: Will be considered on a case-by-case basis. A site fee would apply.  Please contact Shade for details.

All photo shoots/videography will be approved on a case-by-case basis. Projects may be denied due to space issues, time of year, etc.
