Sage's space was absolutely wonderful. While a cohesive feel runs throughout the loft, there are many individual nooks, with their own stylings, giving opportunity to a great variety of photos. Beyond the space, Sage was a great host, was very responsive leading up to the day and super friendly and accessible for questions throughout the shoot.
Beautiful, flexible and versatile space. Sage was super accommodating and great to work with! Highly recommend this location for any of your shooting or event needs!
Chris and Sage were terrific hosts. They were generous and prompt in answering questions and showing us around prior to our shoot and Chris was very accommodating throughout our booking. The space itself is gorgeous too, and has everything you'd want for a video shoot: loading dock, big elevator, great western-facing windows, beautifully curated backgrounds. Definitely recommend!
WOW is all I can say about this space. Incredible loft with the most amazing natural light and interior design. Sage was a pleasure to work with setting this up and Chris was so awesome when we were shooting in the space. I would recommend this space to anyone and I would absolutely book it again for future shoots!!
