We welcome photo and video shoots at Hatcher Garden.

Professional shoots and amateur photography is allowed at no charge. Professionals are defined as anyone whose intent is to sell any product or service. While Hatcher does not charge for professional shoots, a donation is requested for the use of the garden.
