The Hamby team recently had the pleasure of working with Matthew Scott to capture some amazing images of many new culinary offerings that will be featured on Hamby menus rolling out in the next few weeks. We captured a little bit of everything, including hors d’oeuvres, display stations, interactive stations, plated dinners, mini meals & dessert offerings.
If you’ve never been part of a food-specific photo shoot, it is quite an amazing experience to prepare the food items, stage each vignette and really tell a story with each shot. Our hope is that our potential and current clients can easily grasp how Hamby food items can truly enhance their event in a cohesive fashion, accenting the mood and decor of that particular occasion.
Another awesome part of this photo shoot was immediately being able to see the images on the computer screen about 10 seconds after they were captured. Talk about instant gratification!
The purpose of this post is to give you a behind the scenes look at the progression of our daylong shoot. Up first, let’s talk desserts, particularly our praline baskets with seasonal berries and a strawberry mousse.
The studio of Matthew Scott. Where the magic happens!
Rustic, sleek, modern, classic. Props for each look & feel.
Praline baskets with fresh berries. "Posing" the tartlets & making sure their "smiles" are perfect!
These desserts look lonely under the lights, right? But, wait...
Voila! These pretties are ready for your next wedding or gala!
Perhaps a seated dinner is more in line with your next event? And seafood is a must? Check out this next progression of images for the plated grouper dish! It is said that you eat with your eyes first. That being said, eat up!

Amazing the difference between an amateur (me) & a professional (Matt), right? Eat up!
Stay tuned for part 2 of behind the scenes!
