wedding first look photo shoot

I am so happy to have found this gorgeous space!! It’s exactly what we've been looking for to take wedding day photos. We plan on using the landscaping and indoor areas for ‘first look’, ‘getting ready’ pictures as well as with the bridal party. Were hoping that we can take photos here before we walk down the aisle on our wedding day!

social media photo shoot

We're planning to shoot a social media photo shoot for one of my company's clients. We need a bathtub to shoot a "relaxing bath" scene (no people) and a couch area for a mother + daughter portrait scene. We also need to shoot some plants with natural light. Plants would be brought in as props.

cast meeting and photo shoot

I am an aspiring director and producer. I am hoping to use your space to have a meeting with the cast of my web series (10 people total.) I am also looking to take cast photos during this time. We will also be eating some snacks and a light lunch.

simple portrait shoot

I would just like to inform you of the shoot that I would like to do in your space. It is a simple portrait shoot using your space as one of the characters in the scene and our model as the other. I have a stylist who will be providing clothing as well. We should only be at the most 4 people if a makeup artist comes but it will likely be 3, the model, stylist, and myself. How do we get in and out? Should we book an extra hour for clean up or is that all included in the cleanup fee?

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 $224 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 23 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $118 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $575 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 7 hours, and are generally a bit larger 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 39% 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.

25000+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Santa Monica, with the average host boasting 5.0 stars across 839 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
