Old Westbury Gardens Photography Permit

Old Westbury Gardens Photography Permit

No matter what the occasion is, Old Westbury Gardens is a beautiful location for your photography shoot.

This beautiful scenic location is very popular for wedding photography and all types of portraits including family, maternity, Sweet 16, Mitzvah and Seniors. It offers a variety of beautiful backdrops that include lots of greens, gardens of flowers and roses, a mansion and beautiful walkways lined with trees.

In order to have your photos taken on their grounds by a professional photographer, you are, however, required to have a photography permit. The easiest way to do this is to contact Old Westbury Gardens directly to see if your date and time is available and then download the permit application from their website and fill it out.

Portrait photography permits are issued from April 1 - November 7 every day except for Tuesdays for sessions that begin between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
