The Perfect Natural Setting For Every Photo
The Columbus Botanical Garden is 36 acres of incredible natural beauty and the perfect backdrop for any type of photo. For planned photoshoots (i.e. family photos, graduation, prom, maternity, etc.), the photo session fee is $50 for 2 hours of photography in our garden. Those who wish to use the grounds are encouraged to join as members of the Garden at the Silver Trowel level of $250. This will eliminate per session fees. Membership must be current and renewed annually. We appreciate your thinking of Columbus Botanical Garden for your photo session. Photo session fees go directly back into maintaining the beautification of the garden.
Photographers are encouraged to take photos of our wonderful gardens and the beauty of nature at will.
Columbus Botanical Garden is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization
We receive no city or tax dollars for our operating costs. In order to have a beautiful setting in our community that you want to enjoy and take pictures in, we all must do our part to support its maintenance and growth. To allow for homecoming and prom pictures, we are adhering to our policy which requires a fee to use our grounds for pictures*.
Every photo session fee goes directly back into maintaining the beautification of the garden and supporting our education and outreach in our community. We appreciate your support.
