The Hudson Gardens & Event Center is a popular destination for personal and professional photography in Littleton and the surrounding Denver area. We oversee thirty acres of picturesque gardens and natural terrain which provide a variety of backdrops for family photos, engagement photos, quinceanera photos, graduation photos and more. Popular backdrops include lily ponds, bridges inspired by French Impressionist paintings, a garden of roses, and a rustic barn.
Guests may photograph the grounds without a permit if the photos are solely for personal use and enjoyment. Professional and commercial photographers are required to purchase a permit.
