Food Photography-My New Love

I can officially say that I am now retired from wedding photography. My heart just wasn't into it anymore. When I shot a wedding, I would find myself only loving shooting the detail shots. My favorite part of the day was when we made it to the reception hall and I could shoot the cake and food. When I should have made it be about the couple, I was making it about the cake.

It wasn't until after I found myself spending hours on pinterest looking up food images instead of wedding shots, I realized that I needed to go another direction.

Food photography.

I'm so thrilled to say that in the next couple of weeks, I'll be announcing my new blog (don't worry, I'm still keeping this one too!) showcasing recipes, food photography, reviews and giveaways.

In the meantime, if you are finding yourself looking at food porn, check out these awesome foodies.

That's great that you've discovered your true photography love! I have no interest in photographing weddings either, even though I love photographing people. There are just too many specific shots you have to remember to get. It takes the fun out of photography. Your food photos are great though!! Can't wait to see your new blog!

Wonderful that you for now have focused on an area of photography ~ Great and rather marketable I would think ~ Great photos and thanks for your comments ^_^

Well, that certainly was an epiphany! Glad you have found your calling. I would be eating all the food instead of photographing it. I know there are a lot of tips and tricks to the trade. I learned a lot while working as an assistant on set shooting Similac print ads for infant formula!
