Q:
My friend and I are planning a visit soon and we want to take some photos of our vacation fun. I've been reading conflicting reports on Vizcaya's photography permits and need to know before I go...I'm not a professional but I have a dslr and again want to get a few portraits in, however on the weekends it says you have to purchase a $350 permit plus tax to do any kind of posed portrait photography. I feel that's steep compared to other museums/gardens. Some people have said they only paid the $22 admission fee and no one asked about a photo permit, others said they had to pay. There's no clear distinction if travel photography for fun is free, even if its basically portrait photography. Has anyone had experience with this? Thanks!

When we were there we saw two groups doing wedding photos. I believe that's what the permit is for. Many people were taking many 'portraits'of lived ones all over the property and I never saw anyone challenged. If you're not disrupting everyone I'd think you are fine.
Q:
Is there a parking lot?
A:
Yes there is enough parking with a little trail to walk up to the ticket booth!
