Photographs are a wonderful way to remember your visit to Red Oak Lavender Farm. Best time to capture the lavender in bloom in during the month of June. We encourage our regular guests to take pictures with their own cell phone or hobby camera to take photos of wildlife, flowers, your own family, but be sure to tag us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and please link us or hashtag us. We love to see our visitors at our farm! There is no extra fee for unprofessional photographers.
We allow professional photography on the farm Only during business hours: Wednesday - Friday 11-3 pm and Saturday 10-4 pm. The fee to take professional photos with a client is $100, per hour since you are a business. We do not offer less time. Minimum fee then is $100. Photographers have had amazing photos that are special for a lifetime. Photographers are responsible for their clients. Please do not get on plants or in them, and defiantly do not pick the lavender. If you need some lavender bundles for your photos please purchase a bundle in the shop. If lavender is picked to short it can cause the plant to die.
We do Not offer professional photographers session times to book after or before our shop hours any longer. It is just too hard to work with professional photographers after shop hours or before shop opens. We had had some bad experiences with some. Thank you to the ones that were professional and kept their booked time, and were polite.
*Note to professional photographers: there may be people in the fields while you are taking your photos, since the shop is open.
Aerial Photography/Video: The use of drones or any aerial vehicle are strictly prohibited unless we give written permission. We want our visitors to be relaxed and have a quiet setting and enjoy their trip to our lavender farm.
Artists: You are more than welcome to join us during regular business hours and there is not a fee to paint in the fields. Be advised that the farm is a working farm and the use of farm equipment may be used during your stay. Also understand that the 'spot' you decided to set-up at, may not be suitable for the working part of the farm and you may be asked to move. Just please let us know when you would be arriving when and it must be during our regular store hours.
We ask that if you get a particularly good shot on the farm, that you share it with us for use on our Facebook page or Instagram. And add it to our Google page with any good reviews.
Red Oak Lavender Farm reserves the right to refuse admittance for photography and/or change its photo policy without advanced notice. Some areas of the farm may not be available the day of your visit due to unforeseen circumstances. Thank you!
