Directions & Parking


    If your shoot is through June 24, 2021 our studio is located at: 505 1st Avenue NE, Third Floor - Minneapolis, MN 55413

    We are located on the third floor above Ambiente.  The Red Stag Supper Club is on one end of the block and the local gift boutique, i like you, is on the other end.  Aveda Institue is close by and we are very close to Wells Fargo bank & Surdyks.


    After you enter the building, go to the third floor and ring the doorbell.  More nearby landmarks?  Aveda Institue is close by and we are very close to Wells Fargo bank & Surdyks.


    If you arrive early and no one answers right away...don't worry!  We may not have arrived to the studio yet or may be still out on our break in-between shoots.


    Unfortunately, parking can be frustrating at times as there is no designated parking for our building, so we recommend planning an extra 15 minutes to find parking & walk to the studio.

    There is currently quite a bit of construction in our area, so plan extra time.


    There are parking ramps within a few blocks.  Here's a couple:

    24 University - Lot 166

    (between Jimmy John's & Keegan's Pub) 

    Click HERE for a Mapquest link : (612) 341-8000

    $3 first hour; $1 each additional hour

    (a 5 minute walk to our studio)


    Nordhaus Apartments Parking Ramp

    315 1st Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413

    Click HERE for a Mapquest link

    $13 up to 4 hours

    $17 4-24 hours

    (a 3 minute walk to our studio)


    If you are willing to walk a few blocks, you can find free parking.  The best place?  After you pass our studio, take an immediate right onto 5th Street NE.  Go over the bridge into the neighborhood & look for parking along the street.


    Metered parking is almost always available within steps of the studio; however, most meters have a 2 hour maximum parking time.  If you are OK parking past the max time, we recommend downloading the Minneapolis Parking App HERE, so you can extend your parking session right from your phone.   

    We strongly suggest downloading the app & setting up your vehicle & payment information in the app now, so it doesn't slow you down on the day of your session.
