In addition to photographing and styling my own recipes, I also do photography for restaurants, breweries, and shops in the Greater Hartford Area.

Capturing the essence and vibe of an establishment is more than taking a photo – it’s telling a story.

I grew up in Bolton, Connecticut, went to college at UConn, and now live in the Hartford County. Over the course of my life living in this state, I have seen so much growth in Connecticut’s food culture! There are so many amazing restaurants in this area offering delicious food, craft beer, creative cocktails, and one-of-a-kind dining experiences. 

Your restaurant already has delicious food, but the right photography can take your business to the next level. Especially on social media where people eat with their eyes first, welcoming and enticing food photography can drive more customers into your restaurant than ever!

The Press, Hartford CT

The Press is a Prohibition-era speakeasy that serves inspired bar fare and authentic prohibition cocktails. I learned that they make each and every one of their syrups in house, from honey simple syrup to raspberry syrup. Every lemon and lime is hand-juiced to be served in one of their cocktails. I love seeing restaurants like that, who take care in craftsmanship and provide high-quality ingredients to their customers.

The bar itself is Newspaper-themed, complete with iconic Hartford Courant front pages from the years, and a unique Newspaper wallpaper on the back wall. They serve a full whiskey bar, and are working on a “whiskey bible” to help customers choose the right bottle for their cocktail.

To me, this bar has it all – great food, interesting drinks, and a unique and fun restaurant space. It’s so great seeing a bar of this caliber here in Hartford!

The Wise Old Dog, West Hartford CT

The Wise Old Dog is a locally beloved wine and spirits shop in West Hartford. The owner, Jacob, serves up welcoming company, wine recommendations, and interesting insights about all things liquor. Whenever I’m in there, it feels like the best possible block party – everybody’s welcome, there’s plenty of time to chat and have fun, and there’s killer drinks. The Wise Old Dog has such a hometown feel, but an understated elegance in their beautiful storefront and unique fixtures.
