couple mini-session photo shoot

I am very interested in your space for valentine mini session photo shoots. I think it'd work perfectly with that ground level space with such pretty natural light. My one question to you would be if I'm allowed to move the furniture around? I'm hoping to create a simple backdrop against a plain white wall in the front of the space. Are you OK with simple scotch tape to hold up something simple like a heart garland? Also I'd bring some food in - probably a couple snacks and drinks (no alcohol) that is OK correct? Thanks so much for your help!!

Having a Photo Shoot in Santa Monica

Santa Monica is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 50+ 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 Santa Monica will cost you just about $176 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 21 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 $333 an hour. Photo Shoot events here are a bit shorter than average and tend to start around 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. Most last for 6 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 50+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 126% more than the year prior). Wilshire Montana is the most popular neighborhood within Santa Monica for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

20400+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Santa Monica, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 659 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
