Great place! Had a great shoot. Very clean and spacious. I highly recommend it and would rent it again.
Everything was PERFECT! Got to create good content. 🥰
Honestly, it was a really great space, much bigger than I had anticipated. I loved that there were different spots and set-ups and that you weren't confined to just one area. Big windows give off great light. Really helpful that there was a reflector and a bunch of other props. Awesome studio and will be coming back!
Beautiful space to shoot with a lot of natural light and attention to detail!
Amazing studio! So many spots and possibilities for great pictures. I loved it and wanna go back to use rooms or accessories I didn't use for this time! Till next time 😜 Highly recommend!!!!
