Great space, great natural light, great hosts.
Matt was an amazing host. Great communication at all times. This space was gorgeous and would definitely be renting it again in the near future. Highly recommended.
Matt's studio was the perfect location for my photoshoot, especially when shooting a "summer" shoot in the middle of April. The studio was spacious, bright, and inviting with lots of little props to use. The surrounding area/neighbourhood had great backdrops (lots of brick!) to use as well. Matt was so great with communication leading up to and during our rental with helpful and prompt responses. This was definitely a great experience and a very successful shoot.
Matt was super friendly and helpful! The space was beautiful and well lit, just like the pictures. Highly recommended!
I didn't meet Matt, but the place was exactly as it was presented on the site. It was perfect for family pictures, lots of great options for photos within one place - really amazing and full of character!! Thanks Matt
Epic and homey space, easy to access and matt was great.
Thanks again Holly! Another great shoot at the space :)
This space was such an awesome find. I was taking lifestyle photos for my blog and the lighting was perfect. Loved the swing. Matt made the whole process very easy. Would definitely use the space again!
This was my first booking ever and Matt made it a total pleasure! He answered all my questions, was very accommodating AND his place was super lovely. Would book again in a heartbeat.
Matt's place is definitely the perfect place for my project, the light source is very good and the window is huge. The background for photography is amazing and his wife's lovely plant play a big role in my photo.Matt is friendly and he is always around the place, so it is easy to ask for the help.LOVE this space!!!!
A great host, he communicated with me every step of the way and the studio was amazing.
