Matt and I met Karie & Field, from Ace & Whim, for dinner at Postino one night. You know when you can be completely yourself around someone and you think to yourself, "That was a lot of fun!", that is how Matt and I felt after our double date night with those two. Karie and Field are insanely talented photographers, who own Ace & Whim. As part of their participation in the ShowIt United conference, they were in charge of a couple different break out sessions. Karie approached us to see if we would be interested in hosting two styled shoots at our property as part of the ShowIt United Conference for 2015 that took place in Phoenix. The UNITED conference was founded in 2011 as an event for professional photographers to come together to learn, grow and inspire creativity in their businesses. The event started with a community of photographers who were creating their unique brand through SHOWIT, a website building platform that offers drag and drop creative freedom for unique sites. While SHOWIT continues to organize the event, over the years the conference has expanded to partner with other companies that share a vision to inspire creativity in the photography industry.
For this first post, I am going to share with you the first breakout session that we hosted. As part of the shoot, they asked me to style the tablescape and of course, use some of our Tremaine Ranch furniture. What a great opportunity! Naturally, we said yes and couldn't believe how amazing everything turned out. We were going for a very bohemian style, mixed with classic elegance. We paired our tables with some mid century style chairs, faux sheepskin throws and some cactus skeleton to adorn the table. Florals were designed and provided by the ever so talented Sarah of Sarah's Garden. She created the most beautiful bouquet and centerpiece that truly brought everything together.
Stay tuned for day two, coming soon!
