SND CYN | Grand Opening

About a week ago I had the opportunity to shoot the grand opening of a pretty amazing place called SND CYN. What is SND CYN? Well in their own words: “SND CYN Studios is this inspiring and collaborative work space where independent creatives can all work together. This space is home to artists, designers, photographers, producers, and developers.” And let me tell you this place is pretty incredible. The space is so well designed and filled with gorgeous furniture and details. It easily belongs in the pages of Dwell Magazine.

Super ridiculously talented and successful designer, Ty Mattson, headed up creating this space and transforming the historic 125 year old lima bean factory into a really hip and beautiful place. There are so many talented people working at SND CYN that when I was asked to shoot the opening party, I jumped at the chance. There were tons of free drinks, great food from Iva Lee‘s, and my favorite…ice cream cookie sandwiches from the Cool Haus food truck! I tried the hot cake cookies with candied bacon ice cream…AMAZING! Well enough of my blabbing…here are the pics! For even more of them visit the gallery here. ENJOY!
