Photo Policy


Chateau Ste. Michelle is one of the top visitor attractions in the Seattle area. We welcome guests to enjoy taking photos of our winery and scenic grounds as part of their visit to the Chateau. In order to enhance our guests’ experience during their visit, we do not accommodate formal, professional photo shoots. In addition, any photography of our winery or grounds designed for commercial use must be approved in advance by our Communications Department at 425-488-1133 or via email at 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. Cameras, film, tape and discs may be confiscated and become the property of the artist. Cell phones are permitted, unless the artist contract states otherwise. Should they become an obstruction cell phones may be asked to be put away.
