When you Check In we will let you know if there is any bookings following you and the amount of available overflow time. All rentals are spaced a half hour apart to allow time for slight run-overs and for the staff to clean and sanitize the studio. If time is available, you can extend your rental at additional cost per hour.
The Check In process takes 5-10 minutes, you should include this in your plan. When you arrive at your Scheduled start time you will need to present a valid photo ID to the staff, a valid credit card for incidentals, be prepared to make final payment and complete/sign your rental agreement if you did not do so already. After the paperwork is complete the staff will give you a short tour of what you need to know about the studio, etiquette, expected clean up and where to find what you need. We recommend and request that you plan accordingly with any clients schedule to arrive later so that this process can be conducted without distraction.
