Do You Need A Photo Permit?

Yes, you do! This is super important! If you are planning to have a professional photographer with you, then you need to buy a photo permit.

The price for the permit varies from weekdays to weekends.

During the months of June, July, and August you can request a Sunrise photo permit.

Although the price is higher than the regular day permit, a sunrise session will allow you to use the gardens in a more intimate way, as more likely you and your partner will be there by yourselves.

A sunrise permit is also a great idea if you want to avoid the high temperatures of the summer days.

Available Dates:

You need to book your photo permit in advance. Vizcaya is closed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.

What to wear for your Vizcaya Engagement Photos:

The Gardens and Mansion are such a gorgeous location that you can wear anything as fashionable as if you were attending the Met Gala, or as simple as a casual chic outfit.

Keep in mind that the ground of the gardens is obviously uneven, so make sure that if you are wearing stilettos your partner should be holding your hand at all times! 🙂 (This is obviously very pretty for photos).

If you get tired easily wearing high heels then bring some flats, so you can be comfortable while exploring the grounds.
