Oahu Urban Oasis at Foster Gardens

A Hidden Garden Gem in the Heart of Honolulu

What types of sessions are perfect for Foster Botanical Gardens? This location is great for family sessions, couples sessions, engagements, weddings and elopements.

What do I love about this spot? This location is very unique because it is located in the metropolitan area of Oahu however, once inside, you completely forget the city that surrounds you. It is a LARGE garden with many nook and crannies to take sweet photos. This location is perfect for families and couples who are staying closer to town and don’t really want to drive an hour to a beach location. It’s also perfect for anyone, especially local residents, who want a different location for their photos. As any local will tell you, year after year we take beach photos and sometimes, we want something different. This would be a great option for anyone that fits that description. Oh and how could I forget to mention that IT HAS A GREENHOUSE! Honestly, this is reason enough to do a photo session here.

Does this location require a permit? YES. This is a county botanical garden that requires a 3 week notice and a $20 fee to take professional photos. This additional fee will be added to the cost of your session.

Is there parking? You bet! No problems finding parking here

What time of day is best for photos? This location closes at 4pm so your session will begin at 3pm.
