Atelier de LaFleur – a downtown Tucson flower market and workshop, created by Colleen LaFleur. Providing the downtown urban gardener a place to select a petal or two on the way home, a space to network and most importantly plants that can go from an event to the garden. How cool is that! We were delighted to hear that the design firm duo of HA|RU would be creating and designing this space within the historic train depot. We knew it was going to be nothing less than stellar. And we were right. Who could not be obsessed with the massive reclaimed oak beams (they were told were close to 100 years old) which Darci, Dale and Jason Gallo reconstructed into this incredible work table. It’s the perfect centerpiece for this old European artisan inspired shop. Next time you’re around N. Toole Ave you’ve got to stop by. Plus there’s quite a few lovely succulent arrangements that you might not be able to leave without. And while you’re at it visit Maynard’s Market up the way for a tasty local dessert treat.

We are very proud to have collaborated with such a dynamic team of artists. A few of our images were featured in Zocalo’s December issue, we thought we’d show you many more!

When Eric and I saw the results from the Liabotis newborn session we knew we wanted to submit it for publication. Being our first newborn shoot in many many years we had set the bar high for ourselves. Everything on the day worked out very well and we’ve grown to love these indoor residential shoots. So we decided what the heck, lets submit. When On To Baby Editor, Susie Ostrowski reached out via email to let us know they had chosen to publish baby Kostas’ session, we were stoked.

For months we couldn’t wait to share this project with all of you and FINALLY the time has come!!! We had the fortunate opportunity to contribute to this wonderful concept brought about by Gina + Marcus + Alex. A MODERN ARCHITECTURAL STYLIZED WEDDING! Groom, an architect and bride, an interior designer. Talk about right up our alley! The idea- everything would be clean-lined, crisp, minimalistic, graphical, fashion forward and most importantly the details would tell the story of this ARTSY couple.

We brought along some killer drafting tools + architectural books & structural models.  This made for some RAD detail shots within the loft.

Eric designed + recycled + constructed this clever boutonnière from used local bicycle gears.  We’re seriously thinking about doing an online boutique showcasing our handmade ‘one of a kind’ creations.  We’re working on the name… any suggestions?

Letterpress invitations designed by Eric and executed by LittleOwl Letterpress.  Because the overall theme was architectural it was important to design an invitation based on proportion and scale.  Eric used a grid layout along with his favorite font in the ENTIRE world.  He choose to use a blind letterpress with only minimal amounts of color in order to direct the eye to the important information.  He went with a larger size style invitation in order to portray an old school-esque movie poster.

Eric & I used a ‘rubbing’ technique used by architects to transfer the table number setting and name cards onto blocks of wood.
