When You Arrive
Annie, our studio manager, will send you an invitation to August, our smart lock app. If you plan to book the studio, you can download it now and set up your account. The invite will allow you in and out of the studio for your reservation, with access from your smart phone. *Please make sure you put the correct phone number in for your reservation when you book; we are not responsible if you do not receive the invite due to incorrect phone number.*
Appointments may be scheduled as little as 12 hours in advance, therefore we cannot offer specific studio tours or guarantee the studio will be visible for a walk-by. You can text Annie day-of when you are thinking of taking a look and she will let you know if there’s any available time to go in for a few minutes.
Organization + Clean-up
Setting up and breaking down what is needed for your shoot must be accounted for in the amount of time you reserve. Please book more than your “shoot time” to make sure you are in and out on-time. For clean-up, please refer to the reference photos in the studio for how the studio should look when you leave. Please take out what you bring in - including hangers, boxes, props, florals, etc.
If there is an appointment directly after you, we will let you know.
In this case, if you are more than 5 minutes late leaving the studio, you will be billed a $40 late fee.
If there is not, we will also let you know so you can add more time during your session if needed ($40 per additional hour).
