(COVID-19 NOTE: Because Amendment No. 1 to Emergency Order 20-20 remains in effect at this time and requires that all persons (except those exempted) wear face coverings inside and outside throughout Miami-Dade County, we must put a hold on all Portrait Photography Permits at Vizcaya and suspend taking new reservations.)
Portrait and Special Occasion still photography is permitted outside only, in our gardens and grounds. A permit is necessary for those who wish to use Vizcaya Museum and Gardens as a backdrop for posed or directed still photography.
Portrait and Special Occasion photography is defined as any one of the following situations, or any combination thereof:
- Anyone having a portrait taken at Vizcaya, including quinceañera, wedding, engagement, birthday, family, communion, maternity, portfolio, prom, graduation, and any other posed portraiture.
- Posed portraiture of individuals, camera-ready or changing outfits, where a photographer (amateur, semi-pro, pro-am, student or professional, whether paid or unpaid) has a subject(s) posing for a posed or directed portrait with Vizcaya as the backdrop.
- Any visit to Vizcaya involving photography, where the main purpose is posed or directed portrait or special occasion photography, rather than a recreational visit to the Main House and gardens.
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens reserves the right to further define Portrait and Special Occasion photography on a case-by-case basis.
It is important that you review our Permit Rules and Regulations prior to your visit and bring your completed copy with you to the Admissions Booth on the day of your photo shoot.
