Updated: Mar 8, 2021

Leeeet's face it. Northeast Ohio gets COLD. I mean, really cold. And while snowy outdoor sessions are beautiful, sometimes it's nice to find a classy, beautiful indoor location to weather the cold! We get asked quite a bit about the best indoor spots for photos, so here are just a few of our favorite indoor locations to keep in mind when planning your session or wedding!

1. The Arcade, Cleveland

This beautiful venue is perfect for a classy engagement or couple's session. It offers string lights, staircases, and a great view, as well as restaurants to grab that after-session coffee or snack. ;) It is open from 7AM-7PM Monday through Sunday.

2. The SuperElectric Pinball Parlor, Cleveland

With a bright colored wall outside, pinball machines, fun pops of colors everywhere, this parlor is great for gamers, or a retro couple or senior session.

3. SureHouse Coffee, Wooster

This coffee shop is perfect for a cozy, casual session, and one of my favorites. The downtown area near it is super cute for photos, as well!

The Gallery on Mulberry, Mansfield

This studio is perfect for an in-home, minimalistic fee! (Price to book is $75/hour)

Franklin Park Conservatory, Columbus

This venue has multiple greenhouses, and photo options! It is perfect if you love florals, greenery, and beautiful artchitecture. (Price to book is $150/hour) It also includes a tunnel of lights and Christmas decorations around November-December!

West Side Market, Cleveland
Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo

This museum is a gold mine of different photo options! It is one of the only art museums in Northeast Ohio that actually allows photography, and offers so much, from towering architecture, to a beautiful glass house that offers a great outdoor view, to a display of thread art in all different colors.

Brewnuts, Cleveland

This spot has a super fun flamingo and tropical vibe! (Not to mention their donuts look absolutely amazing!)

Cleveland Public Library-Main Branch

This venue offers beautiful variety, as well as elegant staircases, cozy reading rooms, and classic architecture. (A $50 or more donation is typically requested.) Sessions must be scheduled during 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and completed by 5:45 PM.

The Ohio Statehouse, Columbus

This venue is huge, and absolutely stunning. A photo permit must be granted before photographing sessions or weddings here, and requests must be submitted at least 15 days before the date you would like to photograph there. A $50 Permit Application Fee must also be submitted when sending permit request to the Statehouse.
