Caroline Schaefer

Hi, I’m Caroline! I grew up loving photography and loving food. I see food as a connection between new cultures, new people, and great memories. I have worked in the restaurant industry since I was sixteen, and I have always found excitement in the busiest days, witnessing the hard work that resulted in smiling customers. 


However, throughout my experience, I have noticed one thing that often seems to be overlooked in the restaurant industry: professional photography. This made me ask myself, “Why would a restaurant that is this good, represent themselves with such

low-quality photos?” My answer to this question combines my back-of-house restaurant experience, love for photography, and passion for food together to show every restaurant menu in its best light.


I’ve had the opportunity to experience food photography from every angle, and every corner of the culinary spectrum; from a start-up coffee company to a high-end steakhouse to a gluten-free bakery.
