You can capture the contents of any UIView into a UIImage. First, create an empty UIView and position your UIImageView and UITextView as subviews:

// Assumes you have UIImageView *myImageView and UITextField *myTextField
UIView *parentView = [[UIView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectZero];
[parentView addSubview:myImageView];
[myImageView setFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, 100, 100)];
[parentView addSubview:myTextField];
[myTextField setFrame:CGRectMake(20, 20, 80, 20)];
[parentView sizeToFit];

Now create a graphics context and draw parentView into it:

UIGraphicsBeginImageContext([parentView bounds].size);
[[parentView layer] renderInContext:UIGraphicsGetCurrentContext()];
UIImage *outputImage = UIGraphicsGetImageFromCurrentImageContext();

You now have a UIImage with the contents of your UIImageView and UITextField to display, save, or send over the network.

This was a good solution, thanks.

I would like to add that you need to add

#import <QuartzCore/QuartzCore.h>

To your imports so the warnings go away.
