Our farm has become a popular photo shoot destination for both professional and amateur photographers. We welcome photography on the farm and are excited to be part of the memories you’ll capture!
Our 115-acre farm has many beautiful areas to backdrop your photos. Although Webster’s Christmas Tree Farm is only open to the public seasonally, the farmers work hard year-round to maintain the Christmas tree fields. The farm is a family-owned business with many employee expenses. We have been blessed with a business that continues to grow as has the interest of professional and amateur photographers. Therefore, it has become necessary for a photography policy to be developed along with fees.
We appreciate our customers and all photographers understanding and cooperating with the policies that have been put into place.
Any and all professional or amateur photographers and their clients must understand and adhere to the following policy and rules, which have been established to allow an enjoyable experience for all our guests.
We do require a modest fee and a signed Acknowledgement & Waiver Agreement for each photographer. Safety is our priority. Therefore, all photographers must complete and return “Request and Agreement and Waiver Forms” with payment before entering the farm.
