Afternoon tea photography

Afternoon tea photography

Most of my work is wedding photography, portrait photography and property photography, and I love each aspect equally. However, I do like it when I get asked to do something different!

This was a fab shoot for Ursula's Kitchen, a catering business who specialise in afternoon teas, cakes and grazing platters for weddings and events. I was asked to photograph the afternoon tea in my studio against a white backdrop, and do some overall shots and close ups, showing not only the food, but also the beautiful crockery and tea sets which are available for rent. It was a really enjoyable shoot, as it allowed me to use my creative side, placing the food in different ways, and using various lovely pieces to show it on. The colours were amazing (as were the smells!) and I was really pleased with the vibrancy of the images. I love the way the details are shown, with a suggestion of more things fading out behind the main image.

So while product photography and food photography are not my usual line of work, I love to do to it, and this job was really enjoyable. Especially as I got to eat the food afterwards!
