Frequently Asked Questions




Explore professional portrait photography studios in Philadelphia

Portrait photography is a lot more than just looking pretty in front of a camera. It's a chance to capture your birthday in a memorable way, a way of capturing the height of trendy fashion, a celebration of a new baby, and much more. And the key to any good portrait session is the right venue. That way, when you and others look back on those images you'll see a clear story and mood.
As a major US city, Philadelphia has unbeatable options when it comes to professional portrait photography. You can hold an indoor session at a portrait studio, a chic downtown lounge, or a hip nightclub. Or you can go outdoors for a natural light session with the skyline of Philly as your backdrop! What sort of portraiture are you after?

Where to do a portrait shoot in Philadelphia

We recommend browsing portrait photography venues for rent when planning a session for a special occasion. By renting a space you and your photographer can have privacy, full control over the lighting, and amenities that make the shoot better. Philadelphia's restaurants, cafes, lounges, and bars are an excellent choice. By renting a private room for couple of hours you'll have a space that's well decorated, quiet, and tells a story. You can also have the shoot in the main dining area where the polished wooden bar and other interior props add a lifestyle element.
Portrait sessions can also be held in any of Philadelphia's urban parks and gardens. Dilworth Park, Rittenhouse Square, and Fairmount Park all offer skyline views, historic surroundings, and a contemplative atmosphere. The many botanical gardens and arboretums in the Philadelphia area can offer even more beautiful spaces for outdoor photo sessions. Just be sure to check beforehand on whether a permit is needed for any professional photography.

The best places to shoot portrait photography in Philadelphia

If you'd prefer to have a shoot indoors and want a space dedicated to creativity, there's no substitute for high-end portrait photography studios in Philadelphia.
For example, a boudoir portrait session needs props like vintage furniture, moody shadows, and lingerie or costumes. Boudoir studios have all of these, along with changing rooms, makeup studios, and more. For a corporate portrait session, you'll need high powered off-camera flash and photography backgrounds. Philadelphia portrait professionals offer studio space by the hour or multiple-hour block of time. They are usually found in lofts, creative co-ops, flex spaces, and other venues where creative professionals can set up shop and customize a space to their liking!
