Photography & Meeting Rooms

One of the Biedenharn Museum & Gardens goals is to share the beauty and wonder of ELsong Gardens –a premier garden in Louisiana –  with as many people as possible.  One way we accomplish this is by allowing our guests to have a professional photograph made in the garden. It’s one of the area’s best places to take prom pictures, homecoming pictures and other group photos. We limit the number of photography appointments to ensure a quality experience for photographers, their subjects and our visitors. 

 
ELsong Gardens is available for professional photography by appointment three times a day, by RESERVATION ONLY, Tuesday through Saturday at 10:00 am, 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm. Please review our Complete Photograph Guidelines (see below).
 
We hope you enjoy your photos from our exquisite garden in Louisiana – come see what makes us one of the best places to take prom pictures in Monroe!
