The space was great! We did a full day shoot with 4 models, and the space had everything we needed including a space with good lighting to do hair and makeup. The large white seemless was great and the natural light was perfect for this type of shoot. Stevie was super nice and took really great care of us.

About Philadelphia

The largest metropolitan center in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia has been nicknamed Philly and is often also affectionately called The City of Brotherly Love. One of the oldest areas of the United States, Philadelphia was settled in 1682 by William Penn. Initially, this city was the capital of the Pennsylvania Colony. It is historically significant as the location where the Founding Fathers gathered to sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

A city that is extremely picturesque, Philadelphia’s landscape is home to many beautiful skyscrapers of international renown. This urban center has a large number of public parks, natural spaces, murals, sculptures, and gardens that are ripe for exploration. Two of the most beloved parks that see many visitors each year are Fairmount Park and Wissahickon Valley Park.

  • Small town feel
    Though Philadelphia is a large city with much to offer, it still remains the charming feel of a small town.

  • Low cost of living expenses
    When compared to other urban centers like New York or Boston, life in Philadelphia is surprisingly affordable.


  • Air pollution
