The Morton Arboretum is the ideal picture-perfect setting for any portrait. A permit is required for all posed and formal photography or video recording.
Permits are required for professionally conducted formal photography and videography for private personal (i.e. engagement and wedding photos, family portraits, prom pictures, etc) and commercial events and activities. Permit sales are subject to availability, and permits must be applied for at least three days in advance of photoshoots.
If you are holding a special event and renting facilities at The Morton Arboretum, the permit fee is waived.
