Wedding, Engagement, Family Photos or Personal photos
Please Note that we do not allow appointments on weekends due to our busy schedule and also because we are generally hosting weddings and feel that the bride and groom should be afforded the exclusive use of our property during their wedding event. Please do not email us trying to make an appointment for a Saturday or Sunday picture session.
Over the past years, the popularity of using our site for pictures has significantly increased and unfortunately some people have taken the liberty of moving furniture and chairs and then leaving them for us to return to their original spot. As a result, we have decided to impose a fee of $100.00 per hour for use of the premises and facilities for picture taking. Appreciate that your photographer has a thousand dollar camera and wants $$ to take your pictures. We have invested Millions of $$ in our farm and we need $$ to sustain our operations. We do not believe that it is unreasonable to charge for using what we own and strive to sustain.
All appointments must be arranged by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Email us the date and time that you would like to have your appointment and we will inform you if that date and time is acceptable.
Once accepted, you will be required to go on line and pay for your appointment. The store will sent you a confirmation of your payment.
Once we receive confirmation of your payment we will send you an email confirming the appointment that was approved.
The fee is necessary to cover the cost of maintaining our site and providing a staff member to direct and coordinate your shoot. He or she will allow you access into the winery, production area, restaurant (when closed) and other areas open to the public.
Should the weather not cooperate on the day of your appointment, you will be able to re-schedule to a mutually acceptable time without any additional charges.
