Photo Policy


Chateau Ste. Michelle is one of the top visitor attractions in the Seattle area and we welcome guests to take photos while enjoying their winery experience or capturing their special moments on our scenic grounds. We ask that photographers be respectful of the experience of other guests and not interfere with any winery operations.  Photo journalists or any photography of our winery or grounds designed for commercial use must be approved in advance by our Communications Department via email at If photographers become a distraction to other guests, you may be asked to end the photo session. We thank you for your consideration.



Most artists’ contracts prohibit the use of flash cameras, professional cameras, digital cameras, audio or video recording devices and are not permitted in the concert Amphitheatre. Cell phones are permitted, unless the artist contract states otherwise. Should they become an obstruction cell phones may be asked to be put away.
