Professional Photography Policy


The Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum (KBGA) welcomes the opportunity to host professional photographers and their clients. We invest substantial funding and effort each year to ensure the grounds are beautifully maintained for garden enthusiasts, local students and the entire community.

In order to work more closely with photographers and aid compliance of guidelines, the following policy as been implemented.
