Professional Photography Policy
Professional Christmas Tree photography sessions are available on November 14 – 15 & November 21 -22, 2020 only. Professional photography sessions are not permitted during our Christmas Tree Cutting Season. Photographers are required to have reservations for sessions.
Christmas Tree customers are welcome to take unlimited candid photos for personal use during our normal Cut Your Own Christmas Tree Season; however, photo sittings are not allowed with or without a professional photographer.
Photography during our Fall Festival (pumpkin patch, corn maze, etc) is allowed with or without a professional photographer. Admission to the Fall Festival is required for all farm guests, clients, and photographers, but no session fees apply. Photography in the Christmas Trees is not permitted during the Fall Festival except on November 14 -15.
Please be aware that there may be other photographers with clients on the Farm during your session. A $50 deposit is due upon making a reservation. Payment in full is due 14 days prior to your reserved session date. Cancellations within 14 days of the reserved date will forfeit their deposit. (Exceptions made if the farm is closed due to weather.)
Appointments must be booked online
$200 for a full day session (9 hours or less)
which may include multiple client sessions
Farm Photography Policies
Neither half-day or full-day sessions may be split between multiple dates or shared with other photographers.
Photographers must check-in at the ticket window upon arrival. (Enter at the blue gate.) The photographer will receive a lanyard giving permission to take photos on the farm. Please return the lanyard at the end of your session.
Photography clients should enter at the blue gate and meet their photographer at a location designated by the photographer. Be sure clients have your cell number as the farm covers 100 acres. Dewberry Farm will not be responsible for locating clients or photographers.
Parking for photographers is allowed in the parking lots or on roads near the Christmas trees if weather conditions permit. If road conditions are bad, there will be a designated parking area. Do not block the roads as other photographers and farm vehicles may be present. All clients must park in designated parking lots.
Sessions are only allowed in the Christmas trees. Photographers and clients should not enter the farm activity area for any reason other than to access a restroom. On November 14 & 15 the Farm will be open to the public – admission tickets will be required for clients to enter the farm except to use a restroom.
No cutting of Christmas trees will be allowed during the photography sessions. Saws of any kind are strictly prohibited. Photographers will be charged a minimum of $200 per tree damaged or cut.
Any props clothing, furniture or other objects used in the sessions must be removed at the end of the session. A $50 clean-up fee will be charged if items remain.
The photographer and all photographer’s clients will hold harmless Dewberry Farm for any injuries sustained during photography sessions or while on the Farm.
