Come visit us!
Our studio is located in Leucadia - a beautiful beach community within in Encinitas, California - the perfect place to experience the magic of Southern California with the hip vibes of a small surfer community.
One of our favorite things about our studio is the location! In addition to the beautiful scenery, when you come to visit, you'll have plenty to do with all that Leucadia has to offer (aside from your photoshoot, of course!).
Leucadia is such an amazing place to be able to work every single day, and we want to share the magic with you!
Where should I stay?
There are plenty of charming locations to stay in Leucadia and Encinitas, including inns, hotels, and Air BNBs.
However, we highly recommend the The Surfhouse, an adorable boutique hotel owned by our friends!
Their surf inspired boutique motel is located just one block from the beach, next to plenty of amazing restaurants and bars. They offer surf lessons for beginners, and did we mention it is half a mile from our studio?!
By their own admission,
The Surfhouse is the ultimate place to soak up the southern California vibes.
If you stay at The Surfhouse, they will give you a beach cruiser (first picture on the right) for the day to ride over to our studio! How fun is that?
