cleveland wedding photo location with bride and groom at stan hywet gardens

I’ve compiled a list of my favorite Cleveland wedding & engagement photo locations throughout the years! We’re quite fortunate to have such a wide variety of locations here in Northeast Ohio. Not only do we get to experience the change of all four seasons at these locations (which can really provide a different look, even at the same location), but we also have some of the best parks in the midwest. Our locations range from waterfront beaches, to urban downtown settings, and even quiet country vineyards.

Be advised that some locations require a fee, or have specific hours of operation. It’s always best practice to contact the location directly to confirm access and availability!
