Last month, wedding season started with a bang! I photographed a gorgeous, joy-filled 3-day Indian wedding in New York, and since then it’s been shoot after shoot. This week, I am posting a series of food + party images from a recent collaboration between my team and Naturally Delicious in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
Naturally Delicious is the professional home of chef and food stylist, Loren Michelle. Loren and I have a mutual appreciation for delicious food and beautiful imagery, and we enjoy collaborating whenever possible, whether it be on weddings or food photography workshops. When she told me that she was opening Private Dining Room (PDR) – a new business adjacent to her catering kitchen – I jumped at a chance to do a shoot on location.
Karen Wise and Naturally Delicious Team Up
Loren hosted a very successful dinner to celebrate the opening of PDR. The guest list included Anne Chertoff of Anne Chertoff Media, Herve Riou of Tartinery, Jess and Jilly of Carats and Cake, and Shira Savada of Martha Stewart Weddings.
Loren and her staff pulled out all the stops. The evening was full of food, drink, and warm conversation. What follows is a collection of images that I hope you will enjoy. The cooperative efforts by everyone involved made for a stunning and tasty dinner.
