“How do I get a Wedding or Elopement Photography Permit in Boulder?” Great question! If you’re looking to have photos taken in the Boulder area you’ll need to apply for a Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (Boulder OSMP) permit. You can apply here and expect to spend $50 if you’re looking for a one-off permit or, if $300 for a full annual permit.
“Cool, but what’s the difference?” Ha yeahh… it’s a huge price difference so let’s break it down!
The $50 permit allows 50 visitors (not visits) per year. If you’re looking to have wedding, elopement, or any other photos taken in the Boulder OSMP jurisdiction then each person included in the shoot counts as a visitor. If you’re reading this as the couple who is eloping, congrats! You’ll probably only have to pay $50! If you’re reading this as the wedding photog, you may want the $50 permit, you may want the $300 permit…
The $300 photography permit is an unlimited annual permit. So, again if you’re the photographer, and you know you’ll be shooting a lot in Boulder, the best bet is to be safe, full send it, and spend the $300 (sorry).
If you book with me for your wedding, elopement, or shoot you pay the $50 and I’ll take care of the permit process for you so you don’t have to worry about it! Ready to book? Click here.
Side note, there are no drones permitted in the areas under the Boulder OSMP photography permit.
