What do I need to know about photography at Longue Vue?

Longue Vue is a beautiful spot for photography. Because we are a National Historic Landmark, we ask that you avoid photography in any mulched areas and planting beds. Please refrain from picking any plants or fruit, or standing on any furniture. Most importantly, we hope you have a great experience and that your photos turn out better than you hoped!
