Portland Food Photographer | Tabor Tavern

Back in April I went to the Spring Menu media lunch at Tabor Tavern.  It was a nice way to see the restaurant and some of the menu items so that I could prep for our photo session.  After the lunch I was super excited to work with Chef Chris Greer and all the wonderful people at Tabor Tavern.  The food is eye-catching and mouth watering, you can’t beat that combination.  Early Friday morning I arrived at the tavern and prepared for the shoot.  Chris went to town in the kitchen cooking up one gorgeous entree after another.  Even though I was still working on a cup of coffee and in breakfast mode I desperately wanted to take a bite of everything.  Eventually I was able to do a little tasting and when it was all said and done they let me pack up just about everything to take home.  My husband and I enjoyed a leftover feast that night.  I loved everything but I did have a few favorites: Pickled Blueberry + Chèvre Salad, Beet + Chickpea Koftas, Kale Caesar and for dessert Sticky Toffee Cake. I really enjoyed capturing the flavors of Tabor Tavern and devouring them too.  This SE restaurant is a great place to enjoy lunch or dinner and highly suggest it.  When you go say hello to Chef Chris and Kristen and Zig, the proud owners.  Tell them Aubrie sent you.  Enjoy the photos.  (Stay tuned for a few restaurant and portrait photos!)

Catherine - Yum! What an awesome perk as photographer: taking home all the leftovers. Maybe I should pursue food photography as a side gig. 😉

Pech - This post is making me feel so hungry… and I like that several of these have the fork/spoon in them, what a neat trick to making me feel like it’s in front of me and on the way to my mouth…
