It’s been a while since we’ve had any food photography on the blog, so I thought this would be a great time to give you some late-night munchies with photos from last week’s Sip and Tweet event at Mate`. The Latin inspired sushi haven in Georgetown, one of three DC-area hot spots under the Latin Concepts umbrella, threw the event to unveil a series of new dishes, as well as a few seasonal craft cocktails to wet the palate. Check out the images and then head down to Mate` to try it all out!

Caroline + Reid: engaged!

Caroline and Reid decided to have their engagement session in Colonial Williamsburg, near where Caroline grew up. First off, let me just say that I love when couples bring along their pet, but I really love when they make their dog wear a bowtie! Well, we played and played in Colonial Williamsburg. Caroline and Reid let me drag them all over and even tried on a few hats to get into the spirit. Once we were satisfied with the results from the shoot, we decided to pop on over to The Williamsburg Winery and check out where they will tie the knot this December. Most of you probably know that when the light gets good, photographers get excited. As soon as we reached the winery, the light became subtle and golden and beautiful, so I started dragging this awesome couple all over the place all over again! Luckily they obliged and I love the images that came out of the afternoon. Following are some of my favorites. Enjoy!


S@mple

I recently had the opportunity to photograph S@mple, the latest addition to Richmond’s dining scene, for the Richmond Times-Dispatch.  Apart from the fun juxtaposition of metal and brick, the clean white lines, occasional orchid, and of course the abundance of technological geekery that was hard to pry myself away from, I had my choice of beautiful food to photograph thanks to the small plates by chef Todd Butler. In case any of you felt the urge to order one of these dishes, this is what yore looking at: the farmer’s basket with shaved brussels sprouts and kale, sunflower seeds, walnuts, dried cherries, pine nuts and parmesan peppercorn dressing; Shanghai fried rice with rock shrimp, shrimp tempura, forbidden black rice and egg omelet; royal trumpet mushroom kebab; the cubano, with roast pork, smoked bacon, gruyere, mustard and grilled onions (please, I want one now); cinnamon apple empanadas with caramel sauce and vanilla bean ice cream. To see my slideshow with an interview with S@mple owner Adam Bell click *here* and for Dana Craig’s review of S@mple click *here*. Enjoy!
