A church is private property if you don't want a trespassing charge I would make arrangements with the head of the church. And to be honest I have heard of this in the past. A church and its grounds are costly things to erect and maintain, many want them to be of exclusive use of the congregation. And as far as no trespassing signs would you walk into someone's home garden and set lights and have some one posing for shots with out clearing it first?

you can really be charged if there's not a sign posted??? i thought they could only ask you to leave...but imo, there's a BIG difference between a place that welcomes visitors, and a private residence...oh and it's not a garden, nothing trampled, just brick arches, but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask.

Private property is private property. Taking pictures on someone's front porch without asking would be trespassing as well. It doesn't have to involve property damage.

I believe that if you're standing on public property, (i.e. the sidewalk/road, etc) you can shoot into private property. If they have asked you not to walk on their property than that's as good as a 'no trespassing' sign posted.

Down at the local church there isn't a "no killin' " sigh either, doesn't mean it doesn't still apply.

Lack of a sign does not mean the property is not private.

My take:

If this is a serious shoot, it should be handled in a professional manner. Asking for permission before trespassing is always a good idea. Specially given the circumstances, saying one will be there for a handful of minutes and then out, should not be an issue.

Unless the photoshoot is more about the fun factor, and everyone understands what is at stake.

I am a huge advocate for "capture and ask later", though it does not usually work if one is breaking into the Governor's office for a candid photo.

Anyhow, my point is -if it were me, and it were a paid or serious shoot- I'd let someone at the property know "hey, I wanted to jump in, take a few pics of them, and get out" and then spend time admiring the hell out of the property owner, his flowers, building, whatever it might be.

My opinion anyways,
