Option 1 - Self Guided Photography

For groups of 15 people or smaller, you are welcome to visit to the Village during our regular season and operating hours and take photos throughout the site. Regular admission fees would apply. Site staff will not be available to assist with management of your session. We cannot guarantee availability of photo locations and will not assist with managing any aspects of the photography session. Please note that self-guided photographers will be prohibited from managing visitor traffic and/or locations for their group. For example, you will not be able to ask visitors to remain in or out of a specific area so that they are not in your photo.

For groups of more than 15 people OR for private photography sessions, booking is required. Your group will be accompanied onsite by a UCHV staff member. This staff member will assist with your photography needs inside and around buildings, including managing other visitor traffic (if applicable). Specific locations and buildings may be reserved upon request, depending upon availability.
