Professional Food Photographer in South Florida

Posted on February 21, 2012

Food photography can enhance your catering business, restaurant, or pre-packaged food business and is becoming an increasingly important commercial medium. If you are looking for South Florida food photography, look no further than us.


Just think back about the last time you flipped through a cookbook. What caught your eye first of all? Was it the text and print? Or was it those delicious, mouth-watering photographs of delicious food? Yes, the photographs came first. They’re what made you want to look up the recipe and maybe even end up buying the book.


That’s what food photography can do for your business as well. It can highlight your catering or restaurant business and add tremendous promotional value. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. A high quality photograph of a delicious food item from your menu will remain in people’s minds for a long time to come.


You should also consider hiring a professional food photographer if you sell frozen pre-packaged meals – especially online, since you will need an experienced photographer who can make your food look more appetizing than your competition’s products. When looking at the food online is the ONLY opportunity a potential customer has to determine whether or not they want to try your products, those pictures had better make the food look appealing and appetizing. It can make all the difference between a sale or no sale.


Food photography is a special art that involves numerous skilled techniques. Knowing how to use lighting is especially important. The right light ensures that the food photographed will have the best appetite appeal for customers. Often natural lighting is best and makes food look most natural.
There is a lot that goes into preparing food for a photo shoot. That’s why a food stylist is so important. A food stylist is someone who can expertly arrange and display food items. It takes someone who’s meticulous and has great skill. An experienced food stylist makes all the difference in professional food photography.


Not only is the way the food is arranged on the plate important, but the context that the food is displayed in is also important. It sets the mood and adds atmosphere. You don’t want a cluttered, crowded arrangement that’s confusing. But a single glass, flower or colored napkin nearby can enhance the display a lot.


Food photography requires knowing how to think and work quickly because food can soon lose its delicious appearance. It tends to melt, wilt, collapse or lose color. But experienced food photographers know how to work around this and will already have their photo in mind, the lighting set up and their camera focused. Sometimes they’ll use a stand-in or prop to get their focus and lighting just right. Then when the food dish comes in, everything is already prepared for a perfect photo shoot.

Lauren and Brett’s Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach Wedding

Posted on February 3, 2012


Lauren and Brett’s recent wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach was an absolute pleasure to photograph. The couple chose this venue, as they both love the beach! Brett love to surf and swim and Lauren enjoys soaking up the sun. The Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach’s location was perfect – right on a pristine stretch of beach – not to mention its super classy interior and magnificent grounds.



This was a destination wedding for most guests – even the ones from Florida – so the couple wanted a venue that was accommodating and hassle free. They wanted their guests to be relaxed and feel like they were on vacation. The Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach did not disappoint. In addition, Lauren and Brett hosted all of their wedding festivities there to make it really easy for everyone to attend. To assist, the couple hired Jamie Lipman of The Absolute Event who did a terrific job of managing everything on the wedding day.



Lauren was radiant in a Romona Keveza gown and Jimmy Choo shoes.













Benny of Daniel Events created the magnificent décor for Lauren and Brett’s wedding. They were looking for décor that was classy, traditional yet modernized with current trends such as LED lighting, crystals, white dance floor and couch seating. Benny hit home by creating their vision of a “WOW” factor, creating a space that was magical and warm and ultra classy. This was a traditional Jewish wedding, and Benny’s beautiful chuppah really set the stage!








Her amazing after party dress was by Theia.




For Lauren and Brett, who met 4 years ago and as she says “It was love at first sight!”, this was a dream wedding come true. Every aspect was perfect and you can see their happiness beaming through in these photos. My team and I were very honored to be part of this incredible event and hope that you all get a great feel for Lauren and Brett’s Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach wedding by browsing through these photos. I photograph many beautiful weddings at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach, many of them traditional Jewish weddings such as Lauren and Brett’s. We can’t post them all, but we hope that you get a good sense of our coverage and the magnificence of the venue from this glimpse of Lauren and Brett’s amazing Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach wedding.
