Finding the right location for your brand session is a crucial part of the planning process! Your location can help set the tone, add character, bring color, great lighting, and add more engaging elements to your final photos. Whether you’re looking for a personal brand session or a larger commercial photoshoot, these three locations bring modern décor, beautiful views, and all of the Cleveland charm!

1. Breakforth Studio

You can never go wrong with a studio space that is intentionally made for photoshoots and events. Studios are actually one of my favorite places to photograph brand clients! Breakforth Studios is near downtown Cleveland, so it’s great for my clients who want to do their session closer to the city. There’s also a handful of other great studio options in CLE and surrounding areas!

2. The Lantern Room

I recently had the opportunity to visit this space in person and I fell in love with the bright, open layout. The main room has huge windows and an incredible view! This is technically an event space, so I’d mainly suggest it for a larger commercial session. However, their gorgeous rooftop deck works great for mini brand sessions! This space is in a prime location (Ohio City), so there are ample photo spots in the area to help add variety to your images.

3. Kimpton Schofield

Hotels are often underrated locations for commercial photography sessions! Most people just don’t realize they’re an option! The Kimpton hotel brand is one of my favorite brands because their hotels always have a unique, elevated feel. The Kimpton Schofield in downtown CLE is no different. Whether we use the main areas or one of their guest rooms, the hotel is filled with natural light and modern décor accents. The Schofield is also located just outside of Playhouse Square which gives us more options for some unique photo spots.

Bonus: The Fulton Haus

This short-term stay and event rental is brand new and I just couldn’t leave it out of this post! The property is thoughtfully designed with modern and elegant details. For the right brand, this can be the perfect backdrop for stylish, sophisticated marketing imagery.

There are plenty of museums, waterfront parks, industrial architecture, unique shops, and collaborative spaces for your Cleveland brand session. The list of location options for your next brand (or even product) shoot are truly endless! Ready to book your session at the perfect Northeast Ohio location? Get in touch!

She was so easy and calming to work with, as it was my first branding session. She led me throughout the way and the images are perfect! “

"I am certain that because Jontell got to know me and my brand up front, it allowed her to capture exactly what I wanted.
