Photo Policy Information:

Ashland is a private property run by the 501 c 3 non-profit The Henry Clay Memorial Foundation. As such, we charge a fee to use our property for photo shoots. For family photos, engagements, etc. the fee is $25. For a full wedding-party shoot, the fee is $100. Every fee collected goes towards grounds maintenance, making the Estate a perfect backdrop for shoots.

In addition to the fee, we also ask that each photographer read and sign our photography contract stating that you know the rules for photos on the Estate. You can find the contract under the Visit tab here.

Please call us in advance to schedule a time to be on the grounds at 859-266-8581 or e-mail Let us know if you have any questions! Thank you!
