In addition to wedding photography, which is my primary business, I do a good amount of commercial and other types of photography as well. One of my former clients has opened up his new restaurant in Apex and needed food photography for his amazing creations for print advertising and general marketing purposes. Phil, the owner, and I met while he was the executive chef of Heron’s, in the Umstead Hotel. Rudys Pub & Grill is Apex’s first GastroPub and features some amazing food that will certainly have your mouth watering. I can honestly say that after shooting 6 plates of food, I had to get one of his famous hamburgers for myself then went back for the wings two days later. Really good food and if you are looking for a family friendly pub atmosphere, Rudy’s is definitely the place to go.
We shot all the food photography in the pub itself and used the surrounding elements to bring a little more feeling to his dishes. I must say the favorite of mine was the hamburger. It really was that tall and I can speak from experience when I tell you it was delicious as well. I hope you enjoy a few photographs that will, hopefully, make you a little hungry as well.
