Photography in the LOFT

Downtown Pomona is loved by photographers. On any given day, there are photographers shooting in the alley, in front of fountains, in the middle of the train tracks, up against a brick wall or in our Loft.

With north & south facing windows, the unique light that seeps through the windows in our Loft, painting dramatic shadows across the wood floors and the vintage furniture. The soft light from our North facing windows is ideal for portraits, however the dramatic southern light makes for some fabulous artistic shots. The space is large enough to have both or simply move towards the middle of the space and set up studio lighting.

Many of the photographers utilizing the space fall in love with the furniture. Feel free to move a few things around push your shoot to tell a story.

Henry & 9th Launch

We were honored last night to host the launch of Henry & 9th, a men’s accessory company featuring a new line of gentleman’s pocket squares. The Loft was full of dapper gentleman and dashing ladies toasting the future success of Jeremy Hunter, founder of Henry & 9th.

“Clothes make the man.  Naked people have little or no influence on society” – Samuel Langhorne Clemens (aka Mark Twain)

Such words underscore a universal truism:  a person’s sense of style merits the attention of others.  Thus, at Henry and 9th, we believe that even the smallest detail – yes, something as simple as an accessory – can make a substantial impression.

Inspired by the eclectic style of Red Hook, Brooklyn, USA, our company blends contemporary style with the classic suiting standards that have withstood the test of time.  Thus, whether you prefer the flare of bold patterns, or the conservative appeal of classic solids, we are confident you will find the right design to accentuate your suiting preference.

Yes, details matter.  Prepare to make an impression based on your individuality and sense of style.  In the end, accessorize your wardrobe with a view toward making an impression.

Wedding: Jamie & Jonathan

When my husband and I first opened our art gallery, I secretly dreamed of the opportunity to design a wedding amongst the historic brick walls, tall windows and aged wood floors. I’ve been designing weddings for close to twelve years and could of nothing more thrilling to design one in our gallery.

Jamie & Jonathan came to me after finding the Loft on yelp.com and knew this space was perfect for them.

We started with simple ceremony in the Loft followed by a unique cocktail hour in the Sculpture Park (across the street) before heading back up to the Loft for dinner and dancing. It was a truly beautiful experience designing a simple tasteful unique wedding for an equally unique couple.

Agnes’ Birthday

Amid the art showings and workshops, we occasionally take time to open our space for life events, such as birthdays, graduation parties, bachelor(ette) parties and more. Last week’s birthday party for 1 year old, Agnes, the daughter of Vintage Renewals owners, Maria and Chris, was a beautiful event full of laughter, excitement and some of the best food I’ve had in a while. We loved the make your own Bento Boxes and the Kawaii inspired theme. The photo booth, DIY Kawaii tees and glitter tattoos were a hit as well.

Photographer Kerry Sawyers of Move Me Photography caught some great shots…here’s a few that we just loved.
