What a charming spot in a such a cool little neighborhood! We did a photo shoot using both the house and cottage. The living room had huge windows which let in lots of natural light. The cottage in the back has some cool accent walls (one room blue, one yellow) which helped give our background some pop. There's also a pretty wall of green vines outside which was another cool spot to shoot in front of. We then used the location as a jumping off point to shoot at the park a block over. There's some huge trees over there! We had a last-minute cancellation of our booking at another venue, so were left scrambling to find a place, since we'd already booked the photographer. Luckily, Riza accommodated our request and was super willing to work with us. Thank you so much!

We had our wedding at Shotclock Studio 2 days ago. We loved the space since we found it online, we were un decisive between Shotclock studio and another place. As soon as we walked in there we knew this is where we were going to get married. Ariel and Patrick are very responsive and very flexible. The place is very easy to book and love the tables that come with the venue, that helped a lot with our theme. The place is also very private if you have a loud party like mine was, you don’t have to worry about being too loud at night! Loved everything about the place. If you are in doubt like I was, do NOT hesitate no more and booke the place. Thank you Ariel and Patrick for creating such a beautiful event space!

This space was absolutely perfect for my nana’s 100th birthday celebration 🎉. Ariel was awesome to work with. She helped us with envisioning the layout and decorations. This space is setup with audiovisual, lighting options, music playlist option, as well as a television with the option to host meetings. Fantastic find!!! 🥰🥰🥰
