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 use only (engagement and wedding photos, family portraits, and prom pictures). The Arboretum no longer supports commercial photography/videography. All photo permits are good for an hour and subject to availability. Your nonrefundable permit fee includes your permit, gate admission, and parking for every member of your party.
If you are holding a special event and renting facilities at The Morton Arboretum, the permit fee is waived.
