Karve Studio: 700 sqft with unique 'oun' set, LED walls, versatile backdrops & premium Geekoto lighting. Your next shoot's ideal canvas.

Welcome to Karve Studio: 700 sqft of pure photographic potential. Every corner is thoughtfully designed to inspire creativity. While there aren't any windows, we've ensured you won't miss them.

The standout feature? Our 'oun' set. This 20 ft by 11 ft structure, situated just 1.5 ft from a wall, boasts captivating cut-outs – a circle, a 'u'-shaped arch, and its inverted twin. Backlit by LEDs, these cut-outs cast a soft glow on the white backdrop, creating perfect spots for versatile shoots. Add in the tiered steps beneath, and you've got depth and dynamic range for any portrait or scene.

To the left upon entry, find a contrasting 8ft by 7ft LED tube wall. These bright tubes set against a dark background are ideal for dramatic silhouettes, especially with our reflective concrete floors.

Centrally located is our motorized backdrop system, offering five color options. Paired with the LED wall's light, it becomes an instant studio favorite.

Worried about lighting? Geekoto, our sponsor, has generously equipped Karve Studio with top-notch flash and continuous lighting gear, all included in your rental.

Karve Studio is your blank canvas. Whether you're shooting fashion, dance, or film, we've got the backdrop for brilliance. Dive in and make it your own.

General Rules

Please ensure you thoroughly familiarize yourself with our studio rules. Non-compliance may lead to additional charges. To ensure that these rules are upheld, we utilize Wi-Fi cameras throughout the shooting spaces, monitored by a female virtual assistant. Please note, bathrooms are exempt from this monitoring for privacy.
If a rule violation is detected, a studio representative will attempt to contact you twice on the provided phone number. If we are unable to reach you after two calls, our studio's Public Address (PA) system will be activated to address the issue. In order to avoid the use of the PA system, we kindly ask that you keep your phone on and its volume sufficiently loud to receive our calls while in the studio.

1. Checkout Process

Your booking includes a 10-minute cleaning and checkout period that starts after your session's end time. Please note that a Photo Loft virtual manager will be monitoring the Wi-Fi cameras to ensure that all shooting stops promptly at the end of the booking, and the checkout process is initiated. If the Photo Loft representative observes that you are still shooting after your scheduled end time, they will call the phone number you provide to ensure that shooting stops, and you begin packing and initiating the checkout process. If you do not answer your phone, the Photo Loft representative will activate our loud Wi-Fi speaker and communicate with you. We aim to avoid any discomfort or embarrassment, so we kindly request that you set your phone to loud to ensure we can reach you. Please be aware that we will charge up to $100 if our checkout process isn't completed perfectly. Additionally, if you do not leave within the 10-minute checkout window, we will charge the card on file late fees of $10 per minute spent in the studio after the 10-minute window. It is therefore essential to adhere to the checkout process and vacate the studio promptly to avoid any additional charges. Your confirmation email will include a link to our detailed checkout process. We've included helpful photos that make it easy to follow along, and most people complete the process in about five minutes. This way, you can be sure you're following our checkout process correctly and avoid any additional charges.

2. Respect the Furniture

To preserve the quality of our high-end furniture, shoes are not allowed on couches or beds.

Any scuffs, dirt, or damage may result in charges corresponding to the cost of repair, cleaning, or replacement.

Furniture and decor may be moved. However, ALL items must be placed back in their original placement.

3. Timeliness and Courtesy

Please be considerate to subsequent users by cleaning up and exiting the studio promptly at the end of your booked time slot.

4. Studio Privacy Policy

We require that you adhere to our studio privacy policy. If you require any assistance or have inquiries during your session, please call us directly at 214-530-5986. We prohibit knocking on other studio doors, as this can disrupt ongoing sessions and violates the privacy of other clients.


There is ample street level parking next to the studio.

Entering the Space

You'll receive a confirmation email after booking with us, which includes a link to comprehensive access instructions, complete with useful visuals to guide you smoothly to our studio.

Are kids allowed in the space?

Yes, kids are allowed in our spaces.

Are pets allowed in the space?

As much as we love animals, pets are not allowed at any of our studio or event space locations. If we find evidence of a pet being in the space, we will charge a $500 fee.

What is your cancellation / rescheduling policy?

At Photo Loft, we understand that plans can change. Here's what you need to know about our cancellation and rescheduling policy:

  1. No Monetary Refunds: We do not offer monetary refunds for cancellations. Instead, we provide hourly credits.
  2. Hourly Credits for Cancellations: If you cancel your reservation, you can receive hourly credits equal to your booked time. These credits allow you to schedule a new session within 30 days of your original booking date.
  3. Eligibility for Credit Codes: To qualify for credit codes, you must cancel your booking at least 24 hours before the reservation start time.
  4. One-time Free Rescheduling: You can reschedule your booking once without any additional cost.
  5. Subsequent Changes: If you need to cancel or reschedule for a second time, it will require a new booking and payment.

Am I being monitored when I’m in the studio?

Yes, every one of our studios is equipped with cameras that we are constantly monitoring to ensure our rules are being followed. There are no cameras in the restroom.

Can I book your studio for a boudoir photography session?

Tasteful boudoir and swimwear photos are allowed, but we want you to know about our camera rules. Our cameras are always on to keep everyone safe and make sure all rules are followed. But if you still want to take boudoir photos and you understand our camera rules, we're okay with it. Please make sure you and your clients are okay with the cameras before you book. If you are a member and you'd like the cameras off, that's possible, but you need to give us insurance. This is because members know the rules and what happens if they don't follow them. This way, we can keep our place safe while we respect your privacy

Is nudity allowed in your studio?

We do not allow nudity in our studio due to our camera monitoring policy. However, nudity may be allowed for members who provide proof of insurance when our cameras are turned off.

What steps do you take to protect my privacy during a boudoir session?

We take our clients' privacy seriously. While we do not turn off our cameras, we have implemented the following measures to protect your privacy:

  1. Our cameras are monitored by a female virtual assistant only, who checks in every 5-10 minutes to ensure there are no rules being broken.
  2. All footage is deleted at the end of business day unless keeping it is necessary for addressing rule violations, potential liability issues, or legal matters.
  3. We make it abundantly clear that we actively monitor all sessions and events that take place in our spaces. Clients must agree to our cameras monitoring policy before booking.

How early can I arrive to the studio?

Early entry into the studio is prohibited. You will only be allowed to enter the space at your official event start time. Set up and breakdown activities should be completed within your scheduled event time reservation.

Where can my guests park?

Our space is located in the quiet area of Dallas Design District, with low traffic. Ample street parking is available. There is also a parking lot in front of the location, but we cannot guarantee parking in it, as businesses are next to us.

Can I shoot on the stairs?

You can only shoot on the stairs if you book both Karve Studio and Karve Loft.

Do you have an elevator?

Karve Studio is on ground level and does not require an elevator.

How big is the space?

Karve Studio is approximately 700 sqft.

Do you have a restroom in the studio?

Yes, we have a restroom in our studio. It's right outside of the entrance of the studio, to the left.

When does the studio get the best light?

This studio has no windows, making it easy to control the lighting. We also provide LED tubes, constant LED lights and flashes by our lighting sponsor, Geekoto during every reservation.

Can I remove the provided LED constant light to use the stand for my own lighting equipment?

We provide a complimentary LED constant light in each photography studio to enhance your shooting experience. However, we do not permit the removal of this light to use the stand for personal lighting equipment. It's essential to keep the LED constant light affixed to its stand to ensure the safety and integrity of our equipment. If you have specific lighting needs, we encourage you to bring additional stands to accommodate your gear.

Do you provide hangers for clothes?

We do not provide hangers in our studios. This decision is part of our commitment to maintaining a clutter-free and versatile environment for our clients. We encourage photographers and their clients to bring their own hangers to suit their specific needs and preferences.
