We are inviting you to join us on a one of a kind, understated and fashion-forward WORKSHOP RETREAT in magical Puglia, Italy this May.

We will focus on content creation, portfolio building and education but will also give attention to networking and learning from each other. Apart from that, we will immerse ourselves in the Southern Italian flavors and culture and make sure that you will leave with a pocket full of awesome content, a new group of inspiring peers and fresh perspective on your brand, taking it to a next level.

Paulina and Bobbie from Sand+Lace Events met each other in Greece around 7 years ago when they both started their businesses. Both not from Greece and not speaking the Greek language, they decided to collaborate on a project together with some of the industry leaders of that time. Some might have thought it was a setup for failure, but their perseverance, authentic enthusiasm and will power made this project to be a huge success and it built the foundation for their brands as they are known today. Paulina is now an established wedding destination photographer living in the city of love, Paris and Bobbie is an international destination wedding planner living in Amsterdam that works with creative and fashion-forward couples from all over the world.

Now, about 7 years and a lot of beautiful collaborations later, they decided it was time to join forces and create a workshop retreat that will give you exactly what they were hoping for back in the days: a safe place where you can learn, grow and have beautiful content laid out for you that will help you start or elevate your photography brand.
