Bridal Sessions

Oak Alley Plantation is the dream location for formal wedding portraits. We welcome the use of the historic grounds to create beautiful photographs and to commemorate this special time. Photo sessions are available 7 days a week and a small powder room is provided for changing purposes. The fee for use of the historic grounds is $500. The session fee admits 4 guests plus your photographer onto the historic site. Appointments are required so that we can assist you in selecting the best time for your session. Keep in mind that sessions are not available when other special events are taking place or during peak seasons which include: Easter weekend, Memorial Day weekend, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving weekend, and the week between Christmas and New Year. Available start times are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Saturday and 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm on Sunday. Due to guided visits of the “Big House” exhibit, interior and balcony photos can not be accommodated during regular business hours. If you are interested in balcony or interior photos, a start time of 8:00 am would need to be arranged with the event coordinator. A non refundable deposit of $250 is required at the time the appointment is made.


Engagement, Family & Individual Portrait Sessions

What can be better than using the grounds of Oak Alley Plantation as the background for your special portraits?  The fee of $175.00 admits 4 guests plus your photographer onto the majestic grounds of the plantation for your portrait session. This is an outdoor session only and therefore there will be no access to the interior of the mansion or to the balcony.  Changing areas are not available at the mansion, but you are welcome to use the general restrooms located near the Ticket Booth, Sugar Cane Theatre, and Restaurant if you would like.  Appointments are required so that we can assist you in selecting the best time for your session.  The non refundable session fee must be paid the week prior to arrival for the session.  Photo sessions are not available when weddings or other special events are being held.
