Maria’s Mexican Restaurant – Menu Food + Drinks Commercial Photography – 2023

Tahoe Production House teamed up with local photographer Jen Schmidt to work on a photoshoot project for Maria’s Mexican Restaurant in South Lake Tahoe. The project’s aim was to update the food and drink photography for the restaurant’s menu, website, and social media platforms.

Jen Schmidt and the Tahoe Production House team worked together to set up an on-location shoot at the restaurant. They wanted to showcase the restaurant’s food and drinks in a way that would make potential customers hungry and thirsty. They decided to focus on the vibrant colors and textures of the dishes, as well as the unique ingredients and spices used in traditional Mexican cuisine.

The team spent the day photographing a variety of dishes and drinks, carefully arranging them on different plates and glasses to create visually appealing compositions. They experimented with different lighting setups and angles to highlight the food and drinks’ best features.

The resulting photographs were stunning and captured the essence of Maria’s Mexican Restaurant’s menu. The updated photos were incorporated into the restaurant’s website, social media platforms, and menu, giving customers a glimpse of what to expect when they visit.

Tahoe Production House is thrilled to have worked with Maria’s Mexican Restaurant and Jen Schmidt Photography to create beautiful food and drink photography that accurately represents the restaurant’s offerings.  Here is a peek at a few of our final images from the shoot!
