We know that our farm can make a great backdrop for family photos and we do allow several photographers to come and use our farm in the fall months to take Christmas photos for their clients. We do not allow these photographers to come after Thanksgiving because our desire is to focus all of our attention and resources at the farm on our customers and their experience during tree season.
For safety reasons, we only allow insured photographers to schedule to use our property.
How to take Family photos at Candle Tree Farm:
1. Come visit us and pick out and cut down a tree, take your family photos while you are here shopping.
2. Find an insured photographer who is willing to give us a copy of their business liability insurance policy or a photographer who is already taking pictures at our farm. Work with your photographer and us to schedule your family photos between January and Thanksgiving.
Unfortunately, we do not allow families without insured and scheduled photographers to come take photos at our property. (The only exception to this rule is if a family comes to buy a tree during open hours and take photos during their visit. We are so happy for our customers to be able to share their festive Christmas tree picking experience with their friends and family).
We love being able to share our farm with people, although, during tree season (even during closed hours) we can not accommodate families only coming to take photos. Our management team and our employees are focused on keeping our farm ready for customers and caring for our customers from Thanksgiving through Christmas. During off-hours, we are focused on maintaining our property sometimes using heavy machinery; we also have avid hunters who use our property, so, for your safety and the safety of others we can not accommodate families desiring to take photos, even during closed hours after Thanksgiving.
