Step into the enchanting world of La Bicyclette, where every plate is a canvas and every dish a work of art. As a Monterey Bay Area Food Photographer, I set my intention to capture the essence of the experience of visiting this quaint & popular European bistro in the affluent & tourist town of Carmel by the Sea. In addition to that, I also wanted to showcase the creative process of their head chef: Obdiel Luna.

Before the session, it was important to understand where Obdiel Luna gathered inspiration from. He shared something so beautiful: “when I see the seasonal produce come back season, after season; it feels like getting reacquainted with a friend. I get excited to see them again!”.

This family owned restaurant carries a legacy initiated several decades ago. This is a legacy of passion for creating experiences for restaurants patrons, from near and far, that will stimulate their 5 senses; and leave them wanting to come back over and over again. I feel joy being a Carmel Food Photographer encountering these stories of passion and creation in this coveted gourmet restaurant business.

Here is a sample of the beautiful brand elevation session created for La Bicyclette, in Carmel by the Sea; a bistro that brings the European cultural experience to California.
