Although we do not require a deposit for a confirmation, once a studio is confirmed via e mail, there are no cancellations and clients are responsible for the full days rental fee for any studios confirmed.


  • Payment in full for studios and any miscellaneous charges, including equipment and overtime, is due on the day of production.
  • Payment is due in the form of cash or check made out to Dakota Studio.
  • For those clients that prefer to pay with a credit card, we will accept payments through Paypal with an additional 3% service fee. Please notify us in advance for credit card payment.


The Union Square area is home to countless amazing culinary establishments.  We have menus on site for many restaurants and delis  and we are happy to assist you with ordering for delivery to the studio.


We are happy to accept reasonable deliveries prior to your shoot during regular business hours. All deliveries MUST be scheduled with us in advance as we may have other productions in the studio and need to plan accordingly. We ask that you provide us with a list of deliveries as well as a contact person and phone number for each expected delivery. “Load in” of equipment that takes longer than 15 minutes prior to your shoot date will be billed as hourly overtime.
