Professional Photographer’s 90-minute Session

Each 90-minute session costs $50.00. After payment, you will be emailed a receipt. Please keep your receipt handy to present it to a staff member while in the district. You do not need to schedule with Old Salem for a photo session - come when you can. 

Multiple photographers are allowed at the same time because there are so many places to photograph. Please respect one another. Commercial photographers attempting to take photoshoots without a permit will be asked to leave.

Old Salem Museum & Gardens and MESDA will not close Heritage Bridge or ticketed venues to ticketed customers or the general public, or remove signage, during your photography sessions.

Public visitation hours are Wednesday through Saturday 10:00AM to 4:00PM.

During the Holidays clients highly desire photos at Heritage Bridge! There is a high influx of visitors during those hours, or shortly after we close. Photographers can expect high volume crossings by visitors on Heritage Bridge between the hours of 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 3:00 – 4:00 PM. 

Avoid traffic: Ideal days are Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (there are no public restrooms available on these days)

Review the full photography policy before attending.
