We are Mark and Hedi, both equally passionate about creating videos and taking photos. We originally met over a cup of coffee in McDonalds a couple of years ago and have been photographing together since.

A Peek Behind the Scenes of Star Inn’s Restaurant Photography


We recently had the fantastic opportunity to dive into the world of amazing dishes at the Star Inn in Ingatestone, Essex who were looking for a food photographer specialising in restaurant photography, food product, restaurant food, as well as website and social media content images.

Armed with our cameras, lights  and a passion for all things food, we went to capture the essence of their menu, signature dishes, and the festive cheer of their Christmas offerings.

Food Styling – Star Ingatestone, Essex

First things first, we played food stylist extraordinaire! Every dish was freshly cooked to our order and then styled by us to perfection, ensuring that each plate looked as good as it tastes. From the sizzling steaks, hearty roasts to the sweetest desserts we arranged and garnished with love and precision.

Then came the fun part – the photoshoot! With the click of a button, we captured the culinary masterpieces in all their glory. The colours, textures, and flavours jumping out of the photos making the potential clients and customers wanting to reach through the screen and take a bite or simply make a reservation.

Now that we have photographed the dishes, we start editing… we fine-tuned each image to make the vibrant hues pop and the textures stand out. The result? A visual feast that perfectly mirrored the fantastic experience of dining at the Star Inn. All of this done in one day. Styled, photographed and edited.

Commercial  food photography is like a secret weapon for restaurants and food businesses. It helps them show off their dishes and products in the best way possible, making everything look super tasty and tempting. Just like we did for Toby Carvery.

The cherry on top? The beaming smiles from the restaurant owners! They were over the moon with the final images, which are now gracing their website, lighting up their social media feeds, and of course adding that extra flavour to their marketing materials and leaflets.
