photography sessions

Jungle Gardens offers photo permits for those who wish to be professionally photographed in the lush and decorative grounds of this natural paradise.


With payment of a photography fee of $49.99, photography and videography sessions are allowed on the grounds of Jungle Gardens year-round and yield incredibly breathtaking photographs. Azaleas, irises, and wisteria fill the property in spring, the summer provides lots of greenery, in the fall, the grounds explode with colors as our many tree species change into yellows, oranges, and reds, and as fall turns to winter, our camellias and Japanese magnolias begin to bloom. Our property covers over 170 acres and provides an endless amount of backdrops for your special photos.
