During these unprecedented times Vizcaya is doing all that we can to ensure a safe, healthy, and restorative experience for our visitors. For the month of June we have made some temporary changes to our Portrait Photography program. Please read the following carefully, as some policies and procedures have changed: 


***IMPORTANT: You must choose the date of your photo shoot. Select "Other dates..." above. 


Know before you purchase:

  • Fees are non-refundable, and permits are issued “rain or shine”. For the month of June we will offer a one-time-only date transfer to another date within 30 days of your original date, so long as the party has not yet entered the property and checked-in with Admissions. Upon entering, fees are no longer refundable or transferable. To transfer the date of your shoot contact
  • Only 10 spots are open daily for Photography Permits.
  • Weekday permits (Monday, Thursday, Friday) are $250 plus tax
  • Weekend permits (Saturday, Sunday) are $350 plus tax
  • Wagons or any luggage or wheeled carriers are not permitted. During the month of June we will permit re-entry to your vehicles on an as-needed basis. Individuals must inform Admissions of their intent to return.
  • The portrait photography fee provides entry for up to 5 people, including the client and the photographer. Additional guests must purchase their online admission tickets separately. Only individuals with pre-purchased online tickets can visit at this time. Please present proof of purchase at the Admissions Booth.
  • Only one permit per party is required. 

  • In accordance with Miami-Dade County Emergency Order 23-20:
    • Bring your mask. The entire party must wear a mask at all times, with the exception of the subject while they are being photographed (and they agree to wear the mask upon arrival and departure, and while moving between locations and not on camera). 
    • Visitors must maintain a distance of at least 6' from staff and other visitors, except for family members.
    • Restroom use is limited to one person or up to two family members at a time.
    • Visitors who do not comply with these County requirements may be asked to leave the property.

  • Entry to Vizcaya is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (however, Vizcaya is currently closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day), and the gardens remain open until 5:00 p.m. 
  • It is important that you review our Rules and Regulations prior to your visit. You must acknowledge that both the client and photographer have read and agree to the Permit.
  • If you do not comply with the rules and regulations, you may be asked to leave Vizcaya's premises and forfeit your payment.
