Photographer Requests

Every year we get increasing requests from photographers and families to come to photograph their clients or family members on our property. Hensler Nursery is a very popular spot for holiday photos as the Christmas trees and red barns provide a beautiful backdrop.

We are happy to accommodate photo requests but do require planning. We are a small, family-run business, and fall to winter is an especially busy time.

To schedule a photo session, please call our main office at 574-867-4192 or message us through our Facebook page.


We offer two locations for shooting photos. On the main lane as you drive in we have a Christmas tree field on your left. We also offer the use of our main lot to shoot photos against the backdrop of our red barns and train display. Please see map.

Please keep in mind that once the season starts the day after Thanksgiving through Christmas, weekends will be quite busy with visitors and may interfere with photoshoot plans. A day during the week is then recommended.

Location Fee

$50 – up to 2 hours
$100 – 2 hours or more


Please bring cash or check the day of the photoshoot. Leave your name and the check in an envelope and drop off at our main office. After hours, you can slide it through the mail slot on the second-floor stairs outside the office.


  1. Please respect the property and ask all visitors attending the photography session to refrain from smoking. Smoking is a high fire danger on our property. 

  2. We ask that you not venture around the property outside of the designated spots for taking photos. 

  3. Photos can be taken outside. Inside buildings are closed to the public. 

We hope that you enjoy having photos taken on-site at Hensler Nursery. It’s pretty magical scenery among the trees and nature.
