Having a Photo Shoot in Washington

Washington is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 70+ 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 Washington will cost you just about $306 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 55 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $219 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $301 an hour. Photo Shoot events here are a bit shorter than average and tend to start around 2 p.m. or 3 p.m. Most last for 5 hours, and are generally a bit larger than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 70+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 353% more than the year prior). Northwest Washington is the most popular neighborhood within Washington for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

7100+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Washington, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 70 reviews, and 100% of guests saying they would book the space again.
