During the times when the farm is open, there is no charge for photography for personal use (and business with permission). We do ask if you post photos to social media that you tag our farm, Deep Creek Lavender Farm.
*** If your business is photography and you plan to photograph more than one group or family at a time (such as mini-sessions), you will need to sign up for an after-hours private session. During a private session you may arrange to host as many groups, families or individuals you like as it is an hourly fee.
To receive exclusive, private access to the farm for family/groups, bridal photos, engagement photos, etc. when the farm is closed there is a charge of $40 for the first hour and $25 for each additional hour. It requires a tremendous amount of time, effort and expense to maintain the property in the pristine state it is in and we feel this charge is nominal. If you are professional photographer you may set up back to back sessions throughout your paid time frame.
PHOTOGRAPHERS ARE NOT PROVIDED FOR YOUR PHOTO SESSIONS. PLEASE SET UP YOUR SESSIONS WITH YOUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHER.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 240-608-8282 to book appointments. An appointment for after-hour access during the summer season is required as have other events planned throughout the season.
Most of the lavender blooms mid-June through mid-July. Not all cultivars bloom at the same time and we do harvest the lavender and have 'pick your own' so we can't promise perfectly intact rows of lavender, but there is plenty for your photography needs.
