Burnside Farms Photography Policy

Portrait Photography Fees:

During hours sessions: $0 We no longer charge a photography fee for sessions booked during regular hours. With paid admission, you may set up sessions during regular business hours BUT before you book sessions please ensure we will be OPEN. Our seasons are entirely dependent on Mother Nature. Burnside Farms will not be held responsible if you book a time and we haven’t opened or have already closed our season. You may email mike@burnsidefarms.com to see if a date you have in mind will fit within our season. We STRONGLY advise against booking sessions during regular hours on SPRING WEEKENDS! The flower fields get incredibly busy on spring weekends and there is a very high likelihood you and/or your clients will be very disappointed. If you’d like to book a spring weekend session, we suggest before or after hours.

Before or after hours Sessions: $50 per hour (see below for seasonal hours). Before or after hours needs to be booked at least 48 hours in advance. Regular admission fee applies for all party members including the photographer and associated staff for entry into the fields.  Before or after hours, there is no limit to how many prop items may be used or the amount of photography equipment.  After hours there may be a few guests left in the field for a short time after 6pm.  We try to quickly clear the field after we close.

Sunflower Sunsets 6-8 Summer Thursdays and Saturdays: $0 Sunflower Sunsets are considered during regular hours and the photography fee does not apply. Just show up, pay your entry and you’re good to go. Entry to Sunflower Sunsets is $10 per person (children under two are free).
