Food Retrospective




I’m feeling very hungry right now! Today I thought I’d post some collages of my favorite food photography work and call it a “Retrospective”. The Karen Wise Photography Studio has been busier than ever in the past two weeks with wedding inquiries (congrats to all of you newlyweds!) Remember, I also love to photograph food; show me food at your weddings, and I will shoot it! Have a great weekend! You’re seeing a number of images here that I shot on film with the 4×5 Studio camera and the Mamiya . More below…



I made these photos of Ruth Reichl in the Test Kitchen of Gourmet Magazine last year for WGBH’s Gourmet’s Diary of a Foodie. How exciting it was to meet her! Also above are photographs I made for Time Out NY , and a cookbook named, “The Way We Cook“, by Julie Riven and Sheryl Julian, and published by Houghton Mifflin.

Manhattan Maternity

Manhattan Maternity Session.
I had the pleasure of photographing Giselle and AJ’s wedding in Los Cabos, Mexico a couple of years ago and now I’m delighted to be photographing their maternity session! Film is my preferred photography medium and it was so great to be able to use it for this shoot. Giselle and AJ have a beautiful apartment with large south east facing windows, so there was a ton of light.
Congrats to the lovely couple on their expecting their first, a baby girl! I photographed Giselle and AJ’s wedding in Los Cabos a couple of years ago, and now, their growing family!
There was such pretty light emanating from the bedroom windows on this cold and windy November day. The pictures were shot on Kodak film with medium format cameras.
To see this couple’s wedding from the One and Only Palmilla Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, please go to

Driving up to Mont Tremblant

These photos were actually from a trip we took in March after Quebec was hit with 5 consecutive snowstorms! However, since we just got back last weekend from Mont Tremblant, again, I was dying to feature Chandler's completed Time Lapse. His time lapse was a series of photos shot every 20 seconds, from a camera rigged in the car for our long distance drive.

Here is the time lapse, beautifully edited, at the end of this post.
