Terms and Conditions

It is the responsibility of the photographer to ensure all clients are aware and follow the terms and conditions.

We are so happy to have photographers use our farm, Jolene, and the greenhouse to capture that special moment.  Have fun during your shoot, but please respect the following rules.

Rules for the Farm

  • When booking with Once Upon A Christmas Tree Farm and agreeing to the terms and conditions, photographer(s) and clients agree NOT to hold Once Upon A Tree Farm responsible for any injuries sustained during any photography session. Photographer(s) and clients agree to be financially responsible for any damages caused while on the property.
  • NO photoshoots are permitted while we’re open to the public. You will be asked to leave if we see staged photography during operating hours.
  • Please be respectful and polite to all farm staff, visitors, and the land.
  • Please leave the farm as you found it. Bring all trash, props, etc. with you when you leave.
  • All animals must be on a leash. Please clean any mess before leaving.
  • Only photograph in your reserved area.
  • Personal vehicles are NOT allowed on the farm grounds. Please park in the dedicated “parking lot”. If you have props, furniture, etc., you’ll need to carry them to the location. If needed, we can help carry the props.
  • No smoking or alcoholic beverages are allowed anywhere on the farm. 
  • NO TREES OR FLOWERS can be trimmed, cut, or harvested by the photographer or his/her clients. Full retail price will be owed for any harvested crop.
  • This is a working farm. Be aware. There will be rough and uneven ground, insects (we highly suggest you bring OFF!), mud, holes in the ground, and other hazards.
  • We recommend you wear comfortable closed toe shoes and appropriate farm attire. We understand this is a photoshoot, so use your discretion.
  • Fake snow is not allowed.
  • If photos are shared and posted online via social media, Once Upon A Christmas Tree Farm would LOVE a mention and the location tagged.
  • 50% of all fees are due at time of booking. The remainder is due one week prior to your booking.  When requested one week in advance of scheduled session, cancellations will be accepted, and a full refund will be issued. NO REFUNDS will be given when a cancellation is made less than a week from the scheduled session. This includes cases of inclement weather. However, we will allow a reschedule in the event of inclement weather.
  • Failure to follow these rules will result in removal from the property and without a refund.

  • No one is permitted to move the truck.
