General Guidelines for Photographers/Photography Memberships Revised May 23rd, 2014
Because of the MANY photo shoots that take place on Casa Feliz grounds, we have established the following policies:
In order to shoot on Casa Feliz grounds (outside on the property, using the house as a backdrop) must hold a current Photographer’s Membership in the Friends of Casa Feliz. The cost of a Photographer’s Membership is $200, and is valid for 12 months from the date of issue. The Casa Feliz grounds may not be used for professional photo shoots by photographers who do not have a current Photographer’s Membership. No exceptions.
Families or individuals (non-professional)
May take their own photographs on Casa Feliz property once per year, assuming they abide by the following restrictions.
Allowed hours for photo shoots for member photographers and non-professional shoots:
Mondays 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Wednesdays 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Friday and Sunday 8 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
NO PHOTO SHOOTS ALLOWED ON SATURDAYS or during hours other than those specified above.
Photo sessions must NEVER take place during our public open houses or private events.
The allowable photography times above have been carefully chosen—these are the hours when typically private events are not taking place at Casa Feliz. HOWEVER, on rare occasions there WILL be a private event taking place during one of these times (e.g., a Monday afternoon or Friday morning). Thus, it is possible, though unlikely, that a member photographer would arrive for a shoot during one of the allowed times and find that a private event is taking place, necessitating that the shoot be rescheduled between photographer and client. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, and in these rare instances staff will work with member photographers to reschedule a time should this occur.
Staff is unable to assist in scheduling times for photo shoots. Please use the above guidelines for scheduling your photo shoot.
It is against our policy to shoot multiple clients at a single time. A member photographer or photography company may only hold 2 client shoots on a given day.
Staff reserves the right to, at any time, ask a photographer/photo shoot to leave, if the shoot taking place is obtrusive or otherwise disturbing the course of business at Casa Feliz.
It is not possible to reserve the outside of the house for a private photo shoot without paying regular rental rates for the property. Thus, it is possible, and during certain times of the year, quite likely, that photographers will need to share the property during allowable photo shoot hours.
The inside of the house is NOT available for photographers or their clients to use the bathroom or for dressing/changing.
Indoor use of the home for photography shoots on weekdays only between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Corporate rate 280.00 plus tax, this covers 2 hours then, 100.00 plus tax an hour after that.
Couples rate 200.00 plus tax this covers 2 hours then, 100.00 plus tax an hour after that.
Thank you for abiding by these rules, and appreciating the contribution that Casa Feliz makes to the community.
