South Florida Food Photography featuring the cuisine of El Agave Azul

Posted on October 26, 2013


As a South Florida food photographer, I always enjoy shooting all different types of cuisine, not just the food at weddings! For the grand opening (on October 26, 2013) of El Agave Azul in Davie, FL, I was commissioned to photograph some of their most popular dishes, seen in this post.


El Agave Azul is run by the Alarcon family, whose hometown is Monterrey, Mexico. The diverse menu they’ve created is comprised of home-style recipes reflecting their hometown. They use the highest quality ingredients and offer their cuisine at a reasonable price.


I really enjoyed photographing the colorful array of Mexican foods – and even got to sample a few dishes myself – delicious! The dishes offered include Tacos de Trompo, fie-corn tortillas with a beef-pork combo in a house marinade, and Northern-style campechana, with melted cheese, the tromp beef-port combo, carne asada, a slice of avocado in a flour tortilla. The Alarcon’s own two restaurants and both offer assorted Mexican beers as well as margaritas to complement the menu options. The varied menu also includes such Mexican favorites as tacos, coups, quesadillas tortillas, burritos and sopes.


As a food photographer, I appreciate the creativity this type of photography offers me. Completely different than other types of photography, the emphasis when photographing food is to create mouth-watering dishes that create appetite appeal. People should literally want to grab the food right from the picture and eat it! I love Mexican food in particular, as it offers delectable and distinctive flavors; it can be spicy, but not too spicy as well!


If you run a restaurant or food business and are in need of a food photographer, look no further. With many years of experience in this area, I always embrace new projects and opportunities to photograph different food items and cuisines. Whether for a printed menu, website or brochure, hiring a South Florida food photographer would be an excellent idea, as professional food photos make a huge difference in the perception and quality of the meals.


If you like Mexican food and live in the area, definitely check out El Agave Azul – they offer both take-out and dine-in to hundreds of customers daily. Many thanks to the Alarcon family and to JDOC Advertising for this great opportunity.
