Photo Policy

Reid’s Orchard Photo Policy

Photographs are a wonderful way to remember your visit to Reid’s Orchard. We encourage visitors to take casual photographs for their personal use. Photographers who are coming to the orchard for the sole purpose of taking posed photos of people or animals must obtain a permit available at The Apple House. Permit fee is $40.00, payable before the photo session by check or cash only, fee will not be pro-rated (additional Fees may apply see #6).
A permit is necessary for those who wish to use Reid’s Orchard as the background for posed photography. This includes weddings, family, engagement, graduation, prom, senior photos, etc. Photographer doesn’t necessarily mean professional.
Wedding ceremonies, receptions or other special occasions scheduled at Reid’s Orchard are welcome to take their photographs during their rental time at no additional fee.
The following guidelines must be followed when posed photographs are taken.
