2nd Street Market Photos & Engagement Session Location Information

2nd Street Market Description

This is a historic engagement session location just east of downtown Dayton Ohio. This former warehouse on the east side of downtown near Top Of The Market, The Brightside Music And Event Venue, and The Steam Plant is perfect for outdoor urban engagement photography. To have your engagement session there, you’ll need to have it on a weekday or after hours on the weekend, as it is an active market.

Aside from the beautiful market building, there are other things to love about this engagement session location. The most obvious is the giant graffiti wall to the south of the building. There are so many ways to incorporate this piece of Dayton art. The parking lot surrounding Second Street Market is made of weathered bricks and creates a beautiful, textured addition to photos. In the evenings, you can get photos that incorporate 2nd Street Market, downtown Dayton, and a beautiful sunset. After the rain, you can get great puddle reflection photos as well.
