Located in southwest Washington State at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Monet Vineyards is a private estate open by appointment only. While we work to transform our estate into a wedding and event venue, we’ve opened our gates to photographers and their clients looking for a unique photo shoot backdrop. We look forward to sharing with you the peace and simple joy of a well-loved place that stands in harmony with nature.

Before You Visit

Cancellations/Refunds: As a general rule, we do not allow for refundable cancellations, and we encourage our clients to reschedule instead. Clients must cancel their session with at least 24 hour advance notice to be granted a rescheduling opportunity. That being said, we understand that inclement weather and other emergencies can interrupt the best of plans, and we will work with clients on a case-by-case situation if need be.
What Not To Bring: Please respect that preserving the beauty of Monet Vineyards requires a lot of upkeep, and refrain from bringing throwaway items to your shoot. Be also mindful about bringing food/snacks with packaging, as clients are responsible for any waste materials they bring.
