photo shoot for a fashion line

Good Evening, I came across your space and thought it would be awesome for a photo shoot. We have a fashion line and will be shooting 3-4 models. We wanted to get some shots in the rooftop as well if that's possible. I also saw there is a 15 min grace period, just wanted to make sure. Thank you and looking forward to shooting at your space! "

couple mini-session photo shoot

I am very interested in your space for valentine mini session photo shoots. I think it'd work perfectly with that ground level space with such pretty natural light. My one question to you would be if I'm allowed to move the furniture around? I'm hoping to create a simple backdrop against a plain white wall in the front of the space. Are you OK with simple scotch tape to hold up something simple like a heart garland? Also I'd bring some food in - probably a couple snacks and drinks (no alcohol) that is OK correct? Thanks so much for your help!!
