portrait-based shoot

I am a hairstylist. I would like to do a portrait based shoot to show off my salons work this Saturday from 6 to 7. I will have 4 to 6 models, myself, the photographer, and our husbands plus another guy or two for safety. We plan on using mostly natural light plus one or two minor photography lights we will be bringing. We chose this studio because my photographer recognized you and knows your work.

ecomm and lifestyle photoshoot

We will be using this space for our ecomm and lifestyle photoshoot. We would also need to use the rooftop for about 2 hours and was wondering if there was a deal for rooftop+ studio rental? Lastly, would it be okay if we arrived 30 minutes prior to our set time and not be charged for the 30minutes? Please let me know. Thank you!
