Photo Session Details:
Your ticket reservations are for Professional Photographers or Person to reserve a time slot in our Country fields on either August 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, OR 30th from 2pm-7pm. Each slot is 30 minutes or do a 2 hour slot. You can choose how they will schedule, whether it be 1 family session, multiple mini sessions, or artistic photos. Photographers will be required to give Siegels Cottonwood Farm a list of clients that will be coming on the date/time slot they reserve 24 hours before. Those clients will NEED to check in with one of our staff members. Photographers are responsible for meeting their clients and taking them to their space in the field. We will not be sectioning off our field for each photographer or person as we would like them to choose the best location for him/her. We will have pre-made areas for them to take advantage of.

We have a few photographer guidelines that we will give you before attending your time slot (ie no extra lighting, no props, no animals, etc.). This time slot is for 1 photographer and assistant. We realize that you may use multiple cameras to capture your photos, however, only 1 photographer will be allowed per time slot. If you have an additional photographer or person coming to help take photos, you will need to purchase an additional reservation space. Assistants are permitted to help you meet clients and/or help assist you with the photo shoot at no extra charge.
We will not be designating spaces for each photographer as we trust that you will respect other photographers and work around one another. The farm is 10 acres and we feel there will be plenty of space for several photographers to spread out and find the spot that works best for him/her. You will have several areas to take advantage of for photo opportunities; Sunflower Field, Giant Zinnia Field, Corn Field along with other areas around the farm. With each time slot we are limiting the number of photographers out during this time to prevent crowds and too many people on the property for social distancing. We want this to be a wonderful experience for you and your clients in capturing memories with our gorgeous farm!
All photos being taken MUST be family friendly. We ask that if photos are posted on social media that you give credit to the farm by using #SiegelsCottonwoodFarm or #TheBarnAtCottonwood or tagging the farms Facebook page in your posts.
It is important to know that these sessions are weather permitting and also relies on the proper growing conditions for the crops. Should something happen where we have a complete crop failure, we will allow you to use your fee for a Fall session at the farm and will work out the details with you privately. Should the weather conditions be stormy or raining and it wouldn’t be possible to take photos on your dates listed above we will have rain dates available and will work with you to reschedule the photos during one of those selected times.
If you are interested in setting up a time to visit the property to get an idea of set up for your clients, this will need to be scheduled ahead of time. Please contact Info@SiegelsFarm.com to set an appointment.
