Photo Policy

Texas Discovery Gardens welcomes Amateur and Professional photographers for photo shoots. 

There is a fee for any portrait session or photo shoot in the Gardens, Butterfly House, or Building. Photo sessions are available in 2-hour increments between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. 

By booking a photo session, you're directly supporting our organic gardens! 

If you will need a changing room, the Bridal Suite may be rented for $75 (upon availability) and requires advance registration. The fee includes admission for one model and one photographer. All other guests in the photo shoot will pay regular admission. If more than 10 people are coming to the shoot, our group pricing may be applied.

Please call (214) 428-7476 x343 in advance to reserve the room. Payment can be made upon reservation or on the day of the photo shoot. 

If your model comes ready to go and does not require a changing room, the photography fee is $40 and includes admission for one photographer and one model. All other guests in the photo shoot will pay regular admission. If more than 10 people are coming to the shoot, our group pricing may be applied.

Please call (214) 428-7476 x343 in advance to let us know of your preferred photo shoot time. Pay at the door the day of the shoot. 

Please note that our restrooms may not be used for makeup application or as a changing room. Believe us, you'll much prefer the space, lighting and sink in the bridal room!

Photography session fees are waived for rental clients at Texas Discovery Gardens. Speak with our rental department for details/questions.
