Photography at Woods Tree Farm

We welcome professional photographers on our farm year-round.

In addition to planting seasonal flowers, we try to maintain a rustic park-like setting. With the natural beauty of the open fields, 1 acre pond, and mature trees, you’re guaranteed to get some excellent photos.

New For 2024

Hourly photography bookings has proved challenging in the past when trying to coordinate with photographers, their clients, and the weather, so we’re now offering just SEASONAL PHOTOGRAPHY PASSES. 


1) PURCHASE a seasonal pass. A limited number of passes is being offered each season. By purchasing a seasonal pass, you agree to the terms posted on the bottom of this page (scroll down).  

2) SCHEDULE as many photography sessions with as many clients as you wish from FRIDAY-MONDAY (no sessions are permitted Tues-Thurs). For the most up-to-date farm hours and availability, check our calendar.

3) BOOK YOUR TIME ON THE FARM – We will need only 48 hours notice of your intended visit – just use our contact form, or message us on Facebook.

4) If clients cancel, or weather changes your plans, no big deal. Just book another time anytime until the end of your purchased season.

See below for more details.
