The place has very good natural sunlight and access to the studio is easy and clear. However, it is not as clean as in the picture. The floor and all furniture were very dusty and dirty.
When booking this location the host Ginny was very quick with her response time. The space was advertised as shown based on the photos and it had a very open layout which was good. We used this space for a maternity/family photo shoot and it was perfect for the concept myself and my photographer were looking for. The amount of time given was very helpful it gave us enough time to take the different pictures we were looking for and my photographer did not feel rushed to take all the shots I wanted. I would recommend this space to others. I also found the details for gaining access to the space very detailed and helpful which made the process very easy from beginning to end.
Just what I was looking for. Easygoing process to get in and room was tidy and ready to go. Such a magical setting just as the pictures display. Everything went perfect. Even if anything went wrong, it's hard to be upset in such a heaven-like lit up room.
Beautiful and versatile space! It was exactly as described with everything pictured. I truly enjoyed doing my photo shoot there- My only suggestion would be to have someone sweep the floors- They were very dusty which stuck to our feet when we walked barefoot (when we got in the bed we had to brush it off a few times as the sheets are white)- other than that it was STUNNING! I highly recommend booking here!
