in-love photo session on a rooftop

We are coming to the city for an in-love session (personal use only) and are so impressed with your space! We are looking for breathtaking city skyline backdrop and your space nailed it. Do we have to select one of the rooftop options beforehand or can we scope it out once we arrive? Are all of the images on the profile taken from your space?

engagement photo shoot

your historic room is exactly what I'm looking for to have my engagement photos taken. I was wondering if the furniture is included? From what I read I think it is :) I just want to be sure.

pin up photography shoot

it will just be 4 of us, my partner and two models. It's model/pin up photography. Your place is amazing and we would love to shoot it. We are two 49 year old guys who have a studio of our own, so we totally are respectful and careful and all that kinda stuff. As far as the alcohol, I do wanna do a shot where the girls are sharing a glass of wine, but we're not going to be drinking or anything like that. We will maximize our 3 hours in your incredible place. So, a very small little photo shoot, no muss no fuss.

seasonal lookbook photo shoot

I work at a women's wholesale fashion company and we do seasonal lookbook shoots for our ecommerce sites and attend trade shows. We were interested in this location for a photo shoot with a small crew of 6 people (our hair and makeup artist would leave at 1pm) with about 40 looks to shoot. Equipment would be light with the following: 1 clothing rack, 1 steamer, couple luggages of clothes and either using just natural light or 1 light/reflector. The time would be from 9am-5pm and we're mindful of not starting earlier or leaving the premises no later than the scheduled end time. Finally, I'd like to check with you how many parking spots would be available at your location. Since we are all coming from different locations, there could be anywhere from 3-5 cars depending on whether we're able to carpool and if the model would be arriving via uber or driving.

Having a Photo Shoot in San Jose

San Jose is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 10+ spaces available for rent in neighborhoods across the city, you can find just the space you imagined at your budget.

Since planning Photo Shoots is different in every city, here are a few things to keep in mind as you go:

Renting photo shoot locations in San Jose will cost you just about $126 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 14 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $124 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $135 an hour. Photo Shoot events here are a bit shorter than average and tend to start around 11 a.m. or 12 p.m. Most last for 4 hours 30 minutes, and are generally a bit smaller than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 10+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 125% more than the year prior). Alum Rock is the most popular neighborhood within San Jose for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

1000+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in San Jose, with the average host boasting 5.0 stars across 42 reviews, and 100% of guests saying they would book the space again.
