Portrait sessions conducted by professional photographers require a reservation. All photographers must abide by University and Arboretum polices or they will be asked to leave.  Repeat offenders may be barred from the premises.

Reservations are not required for nature photography or amateur photography. If you are being paid to take photographs, want to make sure a particular location is available, or want to set up props, please make a reservation. If you are in doubt, please make a reservation. Fees are kept low and can be waived for certain groups.

Please see our reservation policy for more information. If you are interested in an annual pass at a reduced rate, please contact us at ua.arboretum@ua.edu.
