Exterior photography for weddings, class pictures, family photos, etc is permitted on site and does not require a permit or fee. However, reserved rentals, reserved photography sessions, special events, programming, tours, or maintenance may require occasional closure of the site to photographers. To guarantee access to the site, take photographs within any of the buildings, and/or use any images of the site for commercial purposes (i.e. commercials, magazines, sale of site images, etc) requires a photography agreement. The fee is $50 for the first hour and $25 per hour thereafter.
All photographers, even those not requiring the photography agreement, must be respectful of the site’s historic nature and follow the on-site staff’s instructions at all times. Failure to comply will result in banning the photographer from the site in the future. To avoid any conflicts, please call 414-273-8288 to let us know you are coming and to confirm the site’s availability – even if your photography session does not require a permit.
