Great spot. Very picturesque.
Just like it was in the pictures, super cute & perfect lighting for a photo shoot. Matt was so kind and made the appointment able to run Smoothly . I will definitely book with this Host again
We had an incredible photo shoot at Matt's Midcentury Loft Studio! The space is incredible and Matt is an amazing host! Hope to be back very soon :)
Wonderful, thanks a ton & glad you had a great time!
Matt's a great host and easy to communicate with
It was very good place. I will use again
Matt is amazing and his studio is beautiful. 100% will be coming back to this studio or any of the other ones he has which are all equally as awesome.
The Midcentury Loft Studio was such a dreamy space for a shoot, the photos don't do it justice. Matt was incredibly easy to work with, would definitely book again!
We were supposed to be married in May but had to put everything on hold for a while. We stumbled upon Matt's place in July and knew we had to get married there! The space is even more beautiful in person than in these pictures. Matt and Gwen were helpful when we were setting up for the day and were extremely accommodating! I would absolutely recommend this space to anyone looking for a beautiful backdrop to any event.
Matt and his wife are great! I've used two spaces this past month, and have nothing but positive things to say about them :) Beautiful space, and plants! Can't wait to be back
