dePorres Dinner Party @ Stage and Table in Santa Monica

My photography partner Oriana and I were invited to join the dePorres' dinner table once more, and we gladly accepted! Good food, good company, and unbelievable flavor combinations. Danielle offered wine pairings with every dish -- and these weren't just thrown together or purchased wholesale, but rather, her own wine bottles from her personal collection. What a treat!

The pop-up restaurant at Stage & Table in Santa Monica had great ambience, but that ambience came with low lighting and moody colors -- challenging conditions to photograph, but I love a good challenge. I wanted to embrace the low lighting. Photography is painting with light, but there's also a good story in the shadows.
