The renovations to Soo Photography’s studio were recently completed. Sunlight streams across the cozy modern furniture, 2-way fireplace, and refurbished salon, giving the studio a warm, elegant feel.

The 2-way fireplace is surrounded by curved tiles, bordered by wood.

It’s the perfect place for couples who are getting married to get comfortable, have some wine and cheese, and chat with us about their plans

After 3 months of nonstop construction noise and nerve-racking decision making, the renovation of Soo Photography’s studio is complete. New skylights, windows, and LED fixtures have transformed the dark studio into a sun-drenched haven perfect for photo shoots in San Jose. The elegant modern furniture, 2-way fireplace, and sensual wedding-themed design give the studio the feel of an upscale lounge.

“We spent 3 months dealing with the fine white dust from the drywall, the teeth-shattering jackhammering, and the noise from dawn till dusk. Renovation is super stressful, especially if, like me, you’re someone who is meticulous about the tiniest details: light, color, the shape of the tiles, design, ambiance, and on and on,” says Michael Soo. “But the good news is that our studio renovation is finally complete! Champagne all around, please! Happy New Year!!!”

The new interior, designed by the Soo Photography team, is dappled with natural light from the 7 new skylights and many new windows. Over 60 new light fixtures, most of which use energy-efficient LED lights, brighten the space.

The interior has a wedding theme with a glamorous, contemporary, warm and extremely sexy feel. “The furniture is modern and cozy, the perfect place for couples who are getting married to get comfortable, have some wine and cheese, and chat with us about their plans,” says the San Francisco photographer.

An elongated see-through fireplace is set into one wall. One side features beautifully curved tiles, bordered by wood. The other side has a large black granite surround, sitting on a sensual red wall.

“The see-through fireplace is fun because it’s essentially 2 fireplaces in one,” explains Soo.

The salon also received a facelift with new light fixtures, glass French doors and new flooring.
