Professional food photography by Kathryn Wagner for Ali Baba Restaurant

 (Kathryn Wagner)
I am happy to show you professional food photography and the full website redesign and rebranding of Ali Baba Restaurant. It was a pleasure collaborating with Karl of Three Plumes on showcasing the fast fresh and healthy aspects of this eatery’s authentic Mediterranean cuisine with vibrant colorful photographs of the food. The images are to appear on the site, in store, and as part of the businesses branding. Another example of the effectiveness of photography positively impacting another’s business – love it!

Professional Food Photography: Seafare of Williamsburg Virginia

 (Kathryn Wagner)

I am very excited to share with you a shot recently created for Seafare of Williamsburg, a classic fine dining experience focused on seafood, in Williamsburg Virginia. This shoot is great example of working with a wonderful client and a great team to show off the incredible experiences that my clients offer to their customers. These images are destined for Seafare’s website and a cutting edge visual menu that will be showcased on an iPad; as a visual feast for diners. I have been noticing a bit of a trend lately with utilizing tablets in restaurant settings, and I must say that strong visuals are definitely a key to success with this strategy. I throughly enjoyed working with everyone on this project and look forward to collaborating with more restaurants on iPad menus.

Professional chef portraits of McCrady’s Restaurant: Chef Sean Brock and his team

 (Kathryn Wagner)

I had a great time shooting professional chef portraits with McCrady’s Restaurant’s team; including Chef Sean Brock and Chef de Cuisine Jeremiah Langehorne (plus a live chicken) recently. We named the hen “Bo” short for Bojangles, and she did a wonderful job of livening up the set. McCrady’s did have local chicken on the menu that evening, though Bo was safely returned to her city coop that afternoon. The image is used on McCrady’s Restaurant’s website  to promote this James Beard award winning restaurant’s amazing team of chefs and gourmands.

Foodie Truck branding images

I recently worked with the guys of Foodie Truck a new mobile eatery in Charleston, South Carolina. The Steam Buns with Duck BBQ above is my favorite shot from the edit, with the outtake above and the formal branding shot below. We had a great time creating a set of food imagery from the menu to be used in Foodie Truck’s web and social media branding; including the Facebook page. This client is a great example of how a business can use professional photography to show a customer their value; and by communicating that value differentiate themselves from the rest of the market. I have a few more sessions booked with Foodie Truck, and I must say it has been a pleasure working with them to develop the visual branding.

Be sure to check out Foodie Truck in Charleston starting in mid-May. In the meantime, you can visit Foodie Truck’s website or follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
