CAN FINE ART FINESSE AND OVER THE TOP EXTRA EXIST IN THE SAME SHOOT?

Our incredible team of professionals is aiming to do JUST THAT.

Maybe The Trixie Motel feels a little over the top for you? Or you may want to add more fun and color to your portfolio! Whichever camp you land in, calling our workshop “home” for a few days will be the perfect move. We aim to merge the two worlds into a drool-inducing, FOMO-causing, and future client-inspiring experience.

 
Here’s how we are working to blend the two worlds…
 
🌸 Florals will pull in vibrancy while using expensive and curated blooms.
 
🍴 The tablescape will feature luxury tabletop elements and incredible floral arrangements.
This luxurious and colorful table will cost any client 10k out in the real world! 😳 
 
👗 And the fashion? We hope Oscar De La Renta will also want to jump on this train! If not, at least you know the level of luxe we are pushing for.
 
💜 Creating inside a safe space is what we all long for. This is a come as you are, no matter who you are or who you love environment. Our team is creating from that place of freedom and love; we want you to, too! Our doors are open, and excited for you to join us!
 
All of that to say! Only a few spots remain, so don’t teeter too long if you are on the fence! Come over to the other side…the grass is pinker over here. 😉

PLATED DINNER +

One of the main reasons we wanted to create this experience was for the opportunity to dive into The Mary Costa Collection with its users, using the RAW files we created the day before! What better way to dive in and make sure you're getting the most out of your preset purchase than to have both Mary and Jennefer by your side to help you achieve your personal editing goals? And in such a cute setting!  

What is a celebration of love if it doesn't include dinner, cocktails and CAKE?! We want to lean back, relax and soak in all of the memories with our attendees while enjoying a nice meal. Basically, we always get to attend beautiful events with our camera, but we are rarely the guests. LET'S PARTY!

II. FASHION

VINTAGE CAR

We are off to the desert for the most fun! Mary’s vibrant style is the perfect fit for this colorful foray into the dessert! What would this event be if we didn’t also bring in a gorgeous gal on four wheels?! Filled with fabulous floral fit for a queen, we already can’t wait.
