I was a bit nervous because I had organized the photoshoot for my clients to come update there photos for our database. I worried the space wouldn't be right, and because I wasn't able to see it before committing to it,I had no idea if it would work out. But I couldn't have been more pleased. It was the perfect space with the perfect lighting. It was clean and had everything my photographer needed for lighting and space. Everything went smoothly. Not a single complaint!
