Sunrise In The Sunflowers

Sunday July 28th , 2024
Check-in 5:30-7:30 am
Sunrise is at 5:31 am
$20 each ages 5+ - See Hours & Admissions page to purchase tickets

One day each sunflower season we open the fields at 5:30AM for Golden Hour!  The early morning sun provides soft lighting for beautiful professional photos.  The tickets for this morning are limited to prevent crowding in the field as many use it as a time for family, maternity or senior photos.  We will have some tasteful props set up in the field for those interested in family or staged photos.  We will also have two viewing platforms on the eastern side of the field for a larger perspective!

So, if you are a seasoned professional or if you just want to test out what all those buttons really do on your new camera, plan a trip to Lee, NH.  If you are interested in bringing clients for professional photos please see the details on the Photography page and our photography policy.

Admission is required for any persons wishing to go to the sunflower fields.  This includes photographers, photographers assistants, other persons ages 5 and older.
This event is open to anyone that wishes to attend.  You do not have to be a professional photographer.
Sunrise admittance closes at 7:30 am but will reopen when General Admission admittance starts at 10 am.  Sunrise ticket gives admission for entire day.  Re-entry allowed.
*Note: We do not provide a professional photographer for this morning.  If you are interested in having professional photos taken you will need to hire your own photographer.
