Please feel free to call and schedule a tour and talk to one of our staff about your specific project and needs. As every project is unique, we would love to hear about your project and vision.

Official hours of operation are from 10am to 10pm.  Any work outside of these hours, IF accepted, is considered overtime and will be billed at time-and-a-half.

WW ask for a minimum of one-week advance notice on studio bookings, and booking of new sessions will be subject to the studio’s availability. Rushed booking is available for an additional fee ($50 for sessions under 4 hours, $100 for over 4 hours), and is also subject to availability.

A pre-production meeting is required before booking a new project, to ensure that everyone is well prepared and that there is an understanding of the needs and expectations of both the client and the studio. This meeting is preferred to be in person, but accommodations can be made if that is absolutely not possible.
