I loved shooting here! It was super spacious and we were able to get some pretty shots!! Lighting was BEAUTIFUL! I loved that there was a photobooth there as well, and we got some prints too! I will definitely be shooting there again in the future! (Also when you're on your way up to the studio, Izola Bakery is a must have! Best croissants around!)

Everything was exactly as described, windows provided such a beautiful background, Such a gorgeous space, held the most intimate/ romantic wedding reception with zero hiccups. Owner was always very responsive throughout entire process, was very patient as I had a million questions. Jade was there upon arrival with a smile waiting as I ran late. She provided all necessary info and offered to show us around. If I’m ever in San Diego & need a space to rent this will be it! Can’t say thank you enough!

Hosted a Reality TV themed dinner party here for my birthday! The kitchen worked out great, and the small soundproof booth worked perfectly as a confessional room! 10/10 would book this venue again :)
