Cebu Bar & Bistro - Interiors

It's funny how one thing leads to another. I photographed the Mid-Century Residence for my cabinet client Imperia. Around the same time the homeowner was in the middle of planning to take photos of his restaurant. He saw my images and said "we need this guy." So we talked through everything that they needed and it was a full shoot of both the space and the menu. The partners have owned this restaurant for 16 years and it's their baby, and they'd never had professional pictures made of it. It was exciting to be entrusted with showing off the place they'd put so many years into. The shoot took place over three days:

1. Interiors
2. Food
3. Cocktails, Interior Details, and an exterior twilight. We added on some brunch dishes, too.

Here are the images produced from day one, along with some of the details and the exterior from day three.

Mid-Century Residence

There are few things that make for a more exciting photo project than showing up on location to find that the place is already beautifully decorated and filled with sunlight. They had so much nice stuff here that I was really struggling with deciding what to remove to simplify the images. There we so many cool items and SO MANY PLANTS! Every house needs so many more plants. I need more plants. But these homeowners have it down. You should also also know that they found, I said FOUND, the  massive cacti in the living room and stairwell. There was so much more of this beautiful mid-century modern house that I wish we could have gotten to, but our shoot focused on the kitchen and took most of the day. But trust me, the rest of it is just as gorgeous.
