This last week, we had a great opportunity to be part of an evening event for the Young Professionals in Energy Midland Chapter at Signature Stag in Midland, TX.
The event was hosted by Natalie Pevehouse at her store (Signature Stag). Below is a video we put together for them as well as a slideshow of the “red carpet” photo-booth.
This was our first time working with Natalie. We had visited her store several times to talk about doing commercial production work and had missed her every time. Finally, I received an email from her telling me that she had another project she would like to talk to us about.
I gave her a call and she told me about this “Red Carpet” event she was hosting at her store. They wanted a photo-booth-esque set up for taking pictures against a custom background they had ordered.
We allowed ourselves what we thought was a generous 2-hour set-up time before the festivities were supposed to start. As it turned out, the 2 hours ended up cutting things close.
The direction the backdrop was set up was not conducive to the familiar West-Texas wind. Luckily, we had a ton of sandbags (more on those here). We set about 250 pounds of sandbags and counter weights on the stand bases. It did very well holding and we only had one gust of wind that moved the backdrop and nearly killed our light-stand. Considering the how the wind can be, I would call that success.
Ranchland Hills provided the catering and the food was delicious. I (personally) tried their beef sliders and the chicken skewers. Just typing about it makes my mouth water.
The alcohol and other beverages were provided by Rebecca Creek Whiskey. While I can’t personally attest to the quality of the liquor, judging by the costuming in the photo-booth, I would say that it was pretty darn good.
Natalie made for a great hostess and her girls at Signature Stag made it an incredible event.
All in all, it was a great evening with great people and great food. We look forward to the chance to mingle with these individuals again.
