Photography | $6000

People are 'eating with their eyes' more than ever and having great photography has never been more important. We also understand how overwhelming it can be to keep up with the constant demand of content to stay relevant. This is where we come in. 

The initial photography shoot is a full-day photo shoot, which is so important to our process. It helps us comprehensively capture your restaurant to get you off on the right foot.

This shoot includes stylized food, ingredient shots, kitchen process, FOH action, portraits, interiors and exteriors.

After the shoot, we deliver a library of 150 - 200 images. You will have full licensing rights to these files, so they are ready to bring new life to your website, social media, marketing, and advertising.

We are here to serve you and tell your story. Through our photography services, we provide you with fresh images on a regular basis.

Video | $5500

Our clients are really connecting with our video services where we film and capture the highlights of the restaurant. This shoot includes stylized food, ingredient shots, kitchen process, FOH action, interiors, and exteriors.

$5,500 includes 5 mini videos. One is a 30-second restaurant reel and the others are short, social-first videos. 

Custom video project: cost varies

Video drives action and incorporating video on your website increases conversion by 80%. That means a person who lands on your site and sees a video will be 80% more likely to make a reservation or follow you on Instagram or sign up for your email list or stop in for dinner. That's huge!

Additional Strategy Sessions | $2600

This is what brings The Restaurant Project full circle. After the photos and videos are ready, we meet for your first one-on-one Strategy Session. We hate calling it a "boot camp," but it is basically a boot camp where we provide an overview of social media best practices and help you create an action plan for your imagery. In addition to this first session, we can also provide additional consulting and in-depth workshops for your team. 

Each of the following Sessions (~2 hours) involves a deeper dive into a specific topic, as well as some working time and follow up to actually help you implement what you learn.
