Food as Art?  Or Art as Food?  It was hard to tell the difference during one of our recent shoots!

Last month we had the opportunity to work on a photo shoot with The Catered Affair for their 2013 marketing campaign.  We had way too much fun creating so many beautiful pieces of eye candy.    Their talented team of chefs and food stylists created food that almost looked too pretty to eat. (of course we didn’t let that stop us!)

Here are some of the final images, deliciously inspired and skillfully brought to life as seen through Michael’s eyes.

Sophisticated French apple tart.

Passionfruit-pomegranate punch pops against the beautiful wood grain on our in-house surface.


Now take a look at what went on behind the camera to get those artfully inspired food shots.

Chef Shane diligently puts the finishing touch on the lobster tail before it gets whisked away to the set.

Pastry chef, Krista, skillfully preps the mango-blueberry tarts for the shot.

Miniature pear, beet, goat cheese, and candied pecan salads being prepped in the kitchen.  Look at all that great natural light.

From kitchen to set… the client was thrilled with the final shots.

Beverage director, Markos, pours some bubbly as Michael captures the perfect moment on camera.

Nothing like a champagne toast to celebrate another successful day of shooting!
