RBA Creative Gallery was the perfect space for my husband’s surprise birthday party. It was comfortable and elegant and Randolph and Erica were helpful in every possible way and very easy to organize/coordinate with. My husband’s party was really special, in part because of this beautiful venue.
Erica was amazing. She kept an open dialogue leading up to the day of my photo shoot. The space was exactly as advertised. Nice open space, great skylight, and spacious enough for my need. Randolph Belle was at the studio. He was very friendly and assisted me with some simple set up, and provided me with what I requested. Randolph even gave me some complimentary water. I would definitely come back and use this space.
