Photographer Photo Shoot Information
Welcome and thank you for choosing Flaming Acres Farm for your photo shoot location. Keep in mind that a photographer is not provided for your photo shoot. If you sign up for a time slot, you are purchasing the time you and your clients.
To provide better communication between us at the farm and you as the photographer, we decided to offer self-serve booking service. This way you get the farm all to yourself…with the exception of Dion & me, since you are visiting a “working” farm after all!
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Once again, your photo shoot time slot is self-serve. No one else should be there during your time slot. Dion & I may be working around the farm, but we will try to give you privacy and stay out of your way.
It is best if you handle one clientele per hour. Not multiple families, no multiple senior sessions, no mini photo sessions etc. It is a more relaxed and a better experience not to be rushed or overflow to the next photographers time slot.
Please let us know if you are bringing animals such as a dog. And if you do, bring dog bags and be sure to clean up after the animals.
Please let us know 24 hours in advance if you are wanting to pick flowers during your photoshoot. We do take Venmo for self-serve flower picking, so be sure to let us know. (Only do this if you are picking entire bouquets for example).
Please be sure to respect your time slot as the slot before and after you could be booked. If you decide to pick flowers this also needs to be done during your time slot, as we want to guarantee exclusivity to everyone booking.
Just a reminder, this is a working farm. Agriculture is messy, dirty, and the weather and conditions are unpredictable. There could be mud, irrigation water flowing, dirt, bugs, smoke, wind, rain, storms, dust, sprinklers running etc. at the farm during your photo shoot. These conditions can also affect the way the lighting or flowers look. The farm is not grown for photo shoots. We do not guarantee the farm to be picture perfect. Keep in mind that we cannot guarantee certain types of flowers for your photo shoot.
We will happily reschedule a time for you if there are unpredictable natural conditions which interfere with your photo session. We will not reschedule or refund you if you are not satisfied. PLEASE LET US KNOW ABOUT THE SITUATION THOUGH & WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT IF WE ARE AT FAULT. We did give you a heads up about some of the risks you may encounter with outdoor photography on the farm. We are open Saturday & Sunday from 8 a.m.- 2.p.m. for u-pick flower cutting with the public, and there is no admission charge so be sure to check us out to see if we are what you looking for.
Photo shoot dates start July 8th -September 3rd on Saturday & Sunday afternoons starting at 4 pm until 9 pm for the sunflowers & flower fields.
You may purchase a photographer pass for the Fall Harvest Festival Season which starts September 16th and finishes October 29th on Saturdays & Sundays. The hours are 10 am- 6 pm. A photographer pass allows you to come to the farm during the hours we are open & by pass any lines. Your clients will be able to access the farm at a reduced price of 20% off regular admission.
