Hello to all!!

Well, my partner and I are currently planning visit again Cleveland and I was hoping to get some feedback from those who live. 

I'm planning a surprise, he is photographer, and this trip we want to make some good pictures of us. We are making a hole list of beautiful points that we can visit so he can get good shots, kinda trying to save money, because we suppose to be there from Sunday to Wednesday. I want to visit Springfield too, for the Sertoma Oktoberfest and convince him to give us another day.

I have been thinking in places like Reserve Square, National Terminal, Crittenden Court and Huron Square/Osborn Building. Is there anything we should be on the lookout for when we go in for a tour? Also, we are going from NY, and I don't want to pay the high rates that airport has to leave my car there. A friend told me about this place to leave my car  where you leave you car and someone take to the airport, are those rates fear over there? Or, do you know other option?

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

In Cleveland you have to stop at the West Side Market.  It is an indoor food market with lots of great local vendors (bakers, butchers, etc.  The building is beautiful and the sights and smells are wonderful.  Plenty of opportunities for some great pictures.  Also, for outdoor photography, check out the Cleveland Metroparks.  In the western suburbs of Cleveland there is a large valley that is still left relatively undeveloped.  it has been turned into a string of parks and recreation areas with a river running through it.  Again, lots of opportunities for picture taking.  Sorry I can't be more specific than that.  My wife is the one that has family there.  I am usually just along for the ride so I see the places, but just not exactly sure where they are.
