Wedding and Special Occasion Photo Policy

Camp Randall Wedding Photo Policy

Fans are invited to take photos for weddings and special occasions in the marque facilities of the University of Wisconsin Athletics Department. The following guidelines have been developed to provide guidance for individuals wishing to enjoy their special occasion at Camp Randall Stadium or the Kohl Center.

Comments from patrons who have used Athletic Department venues:

Matt Shore:
"Being out on the field was one of the best parts of the wedding day. The football pictures are some of our favorites, and my groomsmen can now impress people with stories of their touchdown receptions at Camp Randall."

Jacqui White:
"Going to Camp Randall was a great break during the wedding day. Everything else happened very quickly, but on the field we were just having fun. After watching four-plus years of Badger football, it was really cool for our whole wedding party to be where all the action takes place. That was one part of the day that I would definitely do again and again if I could!"
