✨NEW MEMBER MONDAY✨ ILEA Nashville, please meet @tina.g.photo! We are so happy to have her involved in our community! Read more about Tina below. ✨ ✨ Tell us about your company and what your role is. I am the main photographer and owner of Tina Gionis Photography. I specialize in events-everything from huge corporate events to small birthday parties. I love photographing people in social environments! I also shoot portraits. ✨ ✨ LHow did you get involved in the special events industry? My background is in fine-art photography. I worked a lot with my local museum in Toledo putting together art shows and was asked if I could possibly photograph some fundraisers they were having. I realized that I loved taking pictures of events, the museum loved my pictures, and I’ve been having fun shooting events since! ✨ ✨ ILEA members inspire. What inspires you? I get inspired by seeing the amazing things that others are creating with their business, no matter what branch of the event industry they are in. I’ve already learned tons from all the people I’ve met in Ilea. I’ve been so welcomed since I’ve joined. It truly is a collaborative and supportive environment and I look forward to meeting more members. ✨ ✨ What do you enjoy most as an event professional? A couple things: I love presenting my images after the event to those who were responsible for putting it together, and seeing how happy they are, to see all the hard work they put into making the event a success. Client satisfaction is huge for me! I also love interacting with people and getting them to warm up for the camera. ✨ ✨ Favorite thing to do in Nashville? Hiking, swimming, boating on Percy Priest! When it’s too cold to do that, I love to check out new restaurants. ✨ ✨ Tell us a fun fact about yourself? After I finished college, I lived in Asia for ten years working as a both a travel and fine-art photographer. Living in Asia was one of the hardest but rewarding things I’ve ever done. ✨ ✨ Welcome, Tina!

✨NEW MEMBER MONDAY✨ Please welcome Ashley Gootee, Designer and Owner at Something You Couture, to our ILEA Nashville family. Read more about Ashley below. ✨ ✨ Tell us about your company and what your role is. Something You Couture caters to women of all ages who can’t find what they are looking for in a store. We specialize in creating custom couture, gowns, jumpsuits, separates, and accessories, for YOUR special event, such as weddings, baptisms, cotillions, galas, pageants and any black tie event. All of our items are made to order, which take anywhere from 4 – 8 months to create from start to finish, this timeline depends on whether or not any beading, or lace come from abroad. What sets us apart is Ashley has the ability to design custom bead patterns with the client, so it is truly one of a kind, each dress is made by Ashley herself here in Music City. ✨ ✨ How did you get involved in the special events industry? I started my career in the fashion industry about 12 years ago and worked in NYC with Zac Posen, Peter Som, NY Fashion Week, and Wal-Mart, then ran my own line ZAMRIE in Chicago until about 3 years ago, when moving to Nashville from Chicago. It wasn’t until early last year, when I was fired form a job via email, yep you read that right… it was at that point my best friend told me to go into wedding gown design, as I had made her dress years ago. I resisted but then realized there was a market for custom gowns, and some women not being able to find exactly what they wanted. It was recently that we expanded into Couture separates, gowns and accessories; all handmade here in Nashville, TN. ✨ ✨ ILEA members inspire. What inspires you? Love inspires me. There is no better feeling than love. And I am not necessarily talking about love only in weddings but mainly love women have for themselves when they put on one of my pieces and don’t want to take it off because they feel love for themselves. My goal at the end of each day has always been to make women feel beautiful, and we are our own worst critics, so when we pass the test for those critics, that is a magical, lovely moment.
