Happy + Hale's motto is simple: healthy=happy. Lucky for me, they happen to also make healthy look beautiful! My partnership with Happy + Hale all started when I went in to eat lunch there wearing a t-shirt with a camera on it. That caught the owner, Tyler's attention and we started chatting about their current photo situation (him taking photos on his iPhone) and a plan to take that to the next level (hire me to capture their gorgeous dishes). We've since developed a great working relationship and I've been able to continually capture a wide array of their fun, delicious and healthy dishes.
Their clean and crisp brand lends itself to simple, yet vibrant photos sets, putting the food at the forefront. Happy + Hale uses these food and culture images to showcase and drum up excitement for new menu items, to revitalize their website and social media outlets, and for print branding (see use cases below).
Below is a selection of photos we created together (click to enlarge). See also our feature in Food & Wine's article on the best Vegan/Vegan-Friendly restaurants in all 50 States (scroll down to #33)!
