**SEE BELOW FOR VANITY FAIR PRODUCTION TEAM REVIEW
Photo shoot and interview location with great review from producers:
"The place was just lovely! Her home is in the Marina District which is such a great area, far away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but still close enough to everything. Her home is beautiful. She has recently updated everything, furniture and decor, and it's got a nice flare. There are large windows across the main wall of the living room that bring in so much natural light, but you can pull the blinds down and cut it out if you want as well. She was extremely easy to communicate with, prior to booking and once we arrived, even drawing us a map to show us the best places to eat around her home. I would definitely recommend her place to anyone staying in town for business or pleasure."
