What People Are Saying About Our
Photo Studio Retal in NYC
Jan H., Digital Designer and Photographer
“What a wonderful location for our video photo shoot! Everything is set up beautifully and the decor was perfect for enhancing our images. The location manager was on hand and extremely helpful. Load in for the equipment was on the main level and easy and fast. Highest recommendation from me!!”
Monica C. Production, Manager
“Fun, gorgeous space. So many options for photo settings. Cocoon was helpful and flexible!”
“We needed a location for a photoshoot last minute when our first location we had booked on a another site had fallen through the day before. We found this one in the same area. Cocoon was incredibly quick to get back to us, and helpful in every way. The space was great, and looked exactly how it does in the photos.”
Krista D., Senior Editor
“This space was gorgeous, and the team was so friendly and accommodating! Looking forward to doing more shoots with them.”
