Dale was an amazing host. I told him about the event we were interesting in doing, and he was completely accommodating and helpful. SkyHouse is breathtaking!
Dale was a pleasure to work with and the SkyHouse is just the complete getaway experience! Such an amazing property and perfect for vacation or photoshoot with a desert backdrop. Can't wait to book again!
This was a fantastic photoshoot location in a beautifully scenic and private area of the desert. Dale was very accommodating to our team. Unfortunately, there was a lot of miss-communication and confusion. And ultimately that intruded into our shoot-time. We lost the opportunity to complete our intended shot-count due to delays with housekeepers and other issues. All that being said, I felt that Dale was a gracious host. And I would absolutely encourage photographers to seek a booking at this space.
