Had a great experience shooting here. Matt was very responsive and the light and space were great. Definitely would book again.
Great space! We used it for a photo shoot and the lighting and decor was exactly what we wanted. Thanks to Matt for being such a great host!
Awesome natural light.
This is one of two units that I rented from Matt for a video and photo shoot production. Both units are on the same floor and near each other so it was an ideal set-up. This unit has beautiful soft lighting and is really well laid out with mini vignettes (kitchen area, living room area etc.) which allowed us to film different scenes all within the same unit. It is also wider than it appears in the photos so there's plenty of room for camera set and crew to move around. Both units have really nice props with lots of live plants and cool lighting fixtures. They offered a welcome change from the standard 'white-box' studios one finds when filming. We were very happy with the footage we captured and the 'soft-feel' of the room created a lovely backdrop that works well with social media platforms like Instagram. I highly recommend this space and the owner Matt.
The space was beautiful and perfect for hosting a large group. Matt was also an excellent host! He was really helpful and accommodating leading up to the rental day and on the day of. I would definitely recommend the space and the host!
Wonderful to have had you, Dana!
We loved using Matt's space for our photoshoot! He was easy to work with and the space worked perfectly. The natural light is fantastic as well!
Beautiful space. Matt is the kindest owner ever. Thank you!
Amazing location. And Matt is great to work with. I'll definitely be shooting there again.
Perfect! Thank you Matt, can't wait to come back!
Awesome as always!
