Photography & Videography

Chateau Elan Winery & Resort is a proud supporter of the Georgia Film Office and has served as the backdrop for a number of television shows, feature length films, commercials, and more. We are thrilled to have over 3,500 acres of beautiful and unique settings to inspire artists of all levels.

As private property, and to protect the privacy of our guests, Chateau Elan maintains a strict policy against the unauthorized use of its grounds – inclusive of all interior and exterior spaces – unless explicit written permission is granted.


We encourage all guests to take personal photography and videography while enjoying overnight accommodations at our resort. All images and videos taken by guests are allowed free of charge, so long as the images and videos are used for personal, non-commercial purposes. Guests are allowed to use handheld cameras. Camera accessories that could potentially impede foot traffic are not permitted for use – this includes, but is not limited to: tripods, monopods, lighting setups, large reflectors, and staging shots.

For more extensive or non-guest photography and videography, a location fee will be incurred. Location fees range in price, depending on the scope of work, day of the week, time of day, and desired locations.

Due to the volume of inquires, all photography and videography requests must be made a minimum of two-weeks prior to shoot date. All participants will be required to complete a liability waiver, location agreement, and submit a credit card authorization form, prior to the start of the shoot. You will be required to show all signed and co-signed documentation to on-site personnel.  

Chateau Elan has the right, at its sole discretion, to withhold or withdraw consent to photograph and video (or to reproduce photographs or video) of the hotel and related property. Photographs may not be published, sold, reproduced, transmitted, distributed or otherwise commercially exploited in any manner whatsoever. All trademarks, service marks, logos, images, and facilities of Chateau Elan are the sole property of Chateau Elan and may not be used, reproduced, displayed or distributed without written consent.
