They have parking but it might be full by the time we arrive. We are welcome to unload by the door and then get street parking. There is also a loading dock. The space is on the first floor, so we will have to use the stairs. There are two doors at the entrance. Use the door that goes up the stairs NOT through the lobby.

Please be sure to tag all of the creatives in anything you post on social media, that way we can share our audiences with each other to celebrate and grow each of our businesses. We will submit this shoot to blogs, but after reading their exclusivity clauses, this doesn't hold us back from sharing away on our social media channels, websites and blogs! Share away!

The setup

The ceremony arch

The arch will go in the center of the room and will be framed by the arch ceiling. It can go about 3-4 feet away from the center window (obviously not directly up against the wall

The table

The table can start in the center of the room, I also think it would be cool to get a few shots of the table in front of the arch

portraits & Desert disco elopement

This will be set up on one of the blank white walls on the left of the room

The Boss Babes

After a year of lockdown and isolation, we want to create a space for connection, rest, creativity, and encouragement for us creatives. We want to make everyone familiar with one another before the shoot so that we don't have to waste time with pleasantries when we finally meet, and we hope these connections can build to supportive and creative friendships beyond the shoot! Without further ado, meet every boss babe who has made this shoot happen!
