Convinced Photography had the pleasure of capturing the delectable daily menu offerings at Jonathans, a beloved restaurant that has firmly established itself in the charming coastal town of Ogunquit, Maine since the 1970s. This timeless dining spot is widely recognized and cherished, known for its weekly menu specials and enchanting seasonal musical concerts.
During an unforgettable afternoon, we had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the welcoming ambiance of Jonathans. We got to know the dedicated staff, including the talented kitchen team, and meticulously photographed the iconic menu items. Our chosen setting was a particular dining area bathed in the soft, ethereal glow of natural garden light. Against the backdrop of pristine white linen tablecloths, we captured a table set with elegance and anticipation, ready to offer a memorable dining experience.
Between each carefully styled food arrangement, we took the time to photograph the intricate details of a neighboring table setting. We are thrilled to share these captivating images with you, along with the final hero image of the afternoon. This collection showcases a mouthwatering array of some of the finest dishes that Jonathan's has to offer, set against a backdrop of a beautifully adorned table, inviting all to indulge and savor. Bon Appétit!
Against the backdrop of the clear blue water, the city shines like a jewel, a testament to the enduring spirit of a place that has captured the hearts of so many.

From high above, Portland, Maine is a breathtaking sight to behold. As the sun shines down on a day after a snowfall, the city glows with an ethereal beauty, its snowy rooftops and glistening waterways creating a mesmerizing landscape.
The Portland Co building, now home to the Twelve restaurant, stands out among the city's historic architecture, its red-brick façade a testament to the city's industrial heritage. The building's imposing presence is softened by the delicate snowflakes that still cling to its roof.
The Eastern Promenade path and the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad are also visible, adding to the charm and character of this lively and vibrant city.
In March of 2022, we photographed Sur Lie, a local restaurant located in the heart of Portland Maine. This was a photographic project in partnership with Portland Downtown, a non-profit organization that works to enhance and promote the vitality of downtown Portland, Maine.
The focus for the photography session would be to capture the energy and spirit of the restaurant's team. As soon as we arrived at Sur Lie, we were struck by the warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff was incredibly welcoming and confident, which created a really good atmosphere during happy hour. The staff was buzzing around, preparing drinks and appetizers, and chatting with patrons. I focused on capturing the interactions between the staff and customers, as well as the details of the restaurant's interior design.
It was a fantastic night photographing for Portland Downtown and Sur Lie. The team at the restaurant were incredibly hospitable and we really enjoyed photographing their interactions. We hope that our photographic work will help to showcase the atmosphere at Sur Lie, and encourage everyone to visit this wonderful restaurant in Portland, Maine.

We loved working with the bright color palette at Kwench in Boston, Massachusetts. The variety of fresh ingredients made for a great photography session. For Kwench we created colorful and true images for their take-out delivery menu.
We loved working with our friends a Westwood that we also created a full visual story of the entire interior of the bar and restaurant. Did you know there was a mechanical bull in SF? It's a pretty cool place! Take a look.
