Working as a Tahoe Food Photographer at some of my favorite local spots!
Old Town Tap has been and always will be my #1 go-to spot in Truckee, CA. If you’ve never been to Truckee, you are missing out! It’s an incredibly charming little town, about 20 minutes off the northwest shores of Lake Tahoe. Their owners are absolutely delightful and they exude a rustic ambiance, complemented with delicious comfort food. As a food photographer for the Infatuation, I was tasked with capturing their Los Olivos Pizza and the Sage and Kale Mac’n’Cheese.
I had never been to The Sage Leaf in Incline Village, but it’s a hidden gem with incredibly accommodating owners. They went above and beyond opening their doors on a day off so that I could capture their sage and cheddar biscuits. I can’t wait to go back for brunch!
Base Camp Pizza is always a South Lake Tahoe local favorite. It’s a hub for skiers and summer-goers alike with a massive patio, live music, a great selection of rotating taps, and a convenient location right by the gondola.
I was also thrilled to go back and capture the eggplant crepes at Cafe Fiore, one of South Lake Tahoe’s best date night dinners! Cafe Fiore stands as an elegant eatery offering an unforgettable dining experience and the owner, Nick, is so wonderful, kind, and accommodating, which I never fail to appreciate.
Being so lucky as to be hired as a food photographer in the breathtaking backdrop of Tahoe is always a dream come true – esp because you generally get to eat the food after you photograph it! I had a blast collaborating with The Infatuation, allowing me to share a little bit of my backyard with their wider audience. Remember, if you’re looking into expanding your business into more editorial, branding, or food photography, building a strong portfolio and networking with editorial and commercial clients are key steps in carving a successful path. Regardless, don’t forget to savor each moment (wink, wink).
