Haute Media 2022: A Year in Review

The year 2022 was definitely one year for the books, thanks to our talented team and amazing clients! Our Haute Media team had the opportunity to capture event photography and videography for some once-in-a-lifetime events and make incredible memories that we will cherish forever! Here is a look at our Haute Media 2022: A Year in Review, highlighting a few of our most memorable moments from this past year!

Ice-T at Raising Cane’s

In June, in honor of National Iced Tea Day, Raising Cane’s hosted a very special event. Ice-T, the legendary musician and “Law and Order: SVU” star, donned a Raising Cane’s uniform to interact with and serve customers as a fun surprise! Not only did Ice-T make and serve fresh Iced Tea, but guests were able to watch the Actor in action while he filmed a commercial for the popular fast-food company. Ice-T was also happy to take customer orders at the cash register and drive-thru window, and pose for many photo ops! It was an irreproducible moment for not only guests, but our Haute Media team as we got to witness the delight on all the customer’s faces. Not only are these moments special for us, but the photos are extremely valuable to Raising Cane’s as a brand who were able to utilize the images in marketing campaigns and publish on social media!

Elvis Movie Premiere – Harkins Hunka Burnin’ Love Party!

June was a busy month with our Haute Media Team also having the incredible opportunity to photograph a special screening party of the new Elvis movie at Harkins Theatres in Scottsdale, featuring a surprise appearance from the leading-man, Austin Butler, and director, Baz Luhrmann, themselves! As soon as Baz and Austin stepped into the theater, the crowd went wild and we could not wait to capture photos of these two and the ecstatic fans! We were pretty star-struck ourselves and we couldn’t help falling in love with these two.. We love looking back on these incredible images and remembering what an amazing day that was!

OBAP 2022 ReYOUnion Conference

In August, our Haute Media team captured photography and videography at the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals (OBAP) 46th Annual ReYOUnion Conference. OBAP creates pathways to success through educating youth, communities, and professionals; with the vision of “shaping an aerospace industry as diverse as the people we serve.” The three-day conference was held here in Phoenix at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass to recognize 46 years of OBAP history and salute those leading the way for the future! The event included a social mixer, gala, professional headshot station (set up and ran by yours truly), and a special guest appearance by the United States Secretary for the Department of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg. Our Haute Media team was honored to work with such an incredible organization!

Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove 2019-2021 Kitchen Design Contest Summit & Gala

In October, we were fortunate enough to pack our bags and head to Nashville, Tennessee; where our Haute Media team captured photos for the Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove: 2019-2021 Kitchen Design Contest Summit and Gala. The Summit and Gala were held to highlight and honor the pioneering professionals, who with their outstanding creativity and dedication that have pushed the boundaries of kitchen design! The three-day event was a balance of both work and play with an awards dinner & gala plus excursions into the Heart of Music City! Our Haute Media team traveled alongside the Kitchen Design Contest finalists to the beautiful Cheekwood Estate and Gardens, the historic Belle Meade Planation, the iconic Graystone Quarry, and the world-famous Grand Ole Opry! Capturing these sights were definitely some of our top highlights of 2022!

STAFDA Annual Convention & Trade Show

In November, our Haute Media team also traveled to San Diego to capture photography for the Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association’s (STAFDA) 46th Annual Convention and Trade Show. STAFDA represents the best companies and leaders in the construction/industrial supply chain. Their 46th Annual Convention and Trade Show was a three-day event with highlights that included an opening party at the San Diego Zoo; educational workshops from seasoned economist, Alan Beaulieu; and wilderness adventurer, Bear Grylls, as the keynote speaker! Our Haute Media team loves to travel to capture photography and videography for events, and it was such a treat to see all of the memories they made during their travels. We have loved working with STAFDA for many years and can’t wait to see where they travel to next in 2023!
