Photo Shoots & Filming Guidelines

These guidelines apply to all photographers & filming crews at all times while on the Garden grounds.

Photographers & film crews must schedule photo shoots and filming sessions with the Garden before arriving, due to other events taking place.

Check in with the kiosk upon arrival.

Participants must come fully dressed and made up, as we do not have facilities to change or prepare for a photo shoot.


We ask that you be respectful when sharing the Garden with other visitors enjoying the Garden.

As well as observing our Photo Shoot and Filming Guidelines, please note the following:

The Idaho Botanical Garden is a private, not-for-profit organization supported solely by gate admission, memberships, events, and donations. We ask you to honor our policies when using any part of our property. Those who do not comply will be asked to leave without a refund of fee. Our commitment is to protect the aesthetics, beauty, and delicate nature of our Garden. Thank you for your understanding.
