Photographs and Events

Photography is welcomed at Nobska Light.


As of the fall of 2019, the Keeper’s House is under construction and surrounded by a construction fence. The ongoing work will be evident in the photos. The Friends will endeavor to post to the website what to expect in terms of disruptions onsite.


If you are considering staging wedding photographs at Nobska Light, please keep in mind a few limitations of the site. The grounds are open to the public from dawn to dusk. This means that it is very likely that other people will be wandering around as the photos are taken, which may be a distraction. Most people are courteous if asked to step away politely, but they are under no obligation to do so.


Many people get married in Falmouth and love Nobska. If you think it’s a lovely day for photographs at Nobska, keep in mind other wedding parties may also choose the same date.


Wedding photographs may be taken on the lawn. The lighthouse interior will not be available for event and/or wedding photography purposes.


There is very little onsite parking, plan accordingly. Consider carpooling or drop-off options.


It is almost always windy from some direction at Nobska; this adds a natural element to photographs but may not be what you had in mind.

Past contributions for weddings range from $400 and up. 

Engagements $200 and up. 

Photographs $150 and up.
