Very excited to be in Food Arts Magazine again! Last month, magazine founder, Ariane Batterberry, Joan Nathan and I raced around the DC area hopping from dinner to dinner for the wonderful Sips & Suppers event (read more about that here). This month, Ariane recounted her impression’s of exploring DC’s booming food scene in her editor’s note. What a nice present to come home to from Iceland! (just you wait for those pictures…)

See all the images from an unforgettable weekend HERE!

Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux Wine Tasting {Washington, DC}

A little while back I mentioned the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux 2010 Vintage Tasting that I photographed for Pearson’s at the Willard Intercontinental. It was a stellar event organized by Pearson’s David Choi. Wine makers & chateau owners poured more than 125 of 2010’s best wines from the region.Watermarked UGC Elizabeth Parker_0001 Watermarked UGC Elizabeth Parker_0002

After the tasting for the public wrapped up, we moved up to the grand ballrooms in the Willard for a cocktail reception followed by an amazing dinner. It goes without saying, that things got a little sillier at this point!

Like I could resist photographing the delicious food…

French Ambassador,  François Delattre, addressed the attendees (including the Portuguese and Finnish Ambassadors) about the importance of the wine industry in Bordeaux and the strong relationship between the US and France.

I’m still smiling from his closing remarks, “Vive les Etats-Unis! Vive la France! Vive le Bordeaux!”

Nothing like kicking off your heels and climbing on top of a table for a group photo of some of the best winemakers in the business and foreign dignitaires…

I rarely get my picture taken at events, but when the Ambassador of France (my second home) says “Oh we have to take a picture together!” who am I to decline?

Chef Marjie Meek-Bradley Comes to Ripple {Washington, DC} Food & Portrait Photographer

PlateOnline.com   Who s In and Who s Out  Chef Shuffles for the Week of Feb. 22PlateOnline.com   Who s In and Who s Out  Chef Shuffles for the Week of Feb. 22-1 PlateOnline.com   Who s In and Who s Out  Chef Shuffles for the Week of Feb. 22-2

It finally went public this week that Marjie is taking over for Logan Cox when he leaves Ripple in just a couple of weeks! We’ve all loved Marjie’s work at Chef Mike Isabella’s Graffiato, and I’m just so happy that Logan’s successor at a restaurant that prides itself on sourcing locally came from right here in DC.

We did a bunch of portraits of Marjie in her new digs yesterday… and just in time: Plate Magazine made a photo request before I had even gotten home from the shoot!

Welcome to the Ripple family, Miss Marjie!

… and wonderful adventures to my dear friends, Logan & Sara.

Published: L’Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux in France’s Le Figaro

Et voilà! Elizabeth Parker Photographie has returned back to its French roots! One of my photos is appearing in France’s newspaper Le Figaro‘s L’Avis du Vin.

I was very excited to be asked to photograph this amazing evening at the Willard Intercontinental for by David Choi, proprietor of Pearson’s Wines and Spirits and organizer of the event. L’Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux tours the US and Canada every year, but this is the first time in a decade that they have stopped in DC. The night was a huge success with several ambassadors and senators in attendance.

Much thanks to Bijan Jabbari who reports to Le Figaro from Washington. You can see the article below. My photo is the 2nd one of many of the winemakers with the Ambassador of France, François Delattre.

Personal: Thai Feast & Good Company {Food Photographer & Eater of Yummy Things} Washington, DC

On Saturday evening, I had the immense pleasure of joining my friends for a dinner party. Anyone who knows me will tell you that a Saturday night to just be with friends happens once in a blue moon. (And to be honest, I was late for dinner coming back from 2 shoots that day… but that’s the definition of a “free Saturday night” in my world!)

Katie & Allan have one of the most well-appointed kitchens I’ve ever seen of a home chef. Their cookbook collection alone had me drooling. Knowing them, I was prepared for a treat, but when I saw the setting,  I couldn’t get a plate-full fast enough. My goodness, they are as talented as they are endearing.

I couldn’t resist snapping a few shots of my pals and foodies extraordinaire enjoying the merriment. Unfortunately, not everyone is pictured as I decided to put the camera down and enjoy. Derek Brown (@betterdrinking) and his lovely wife, Chantal Tseng (@ShinobiPaws) tweeted a few of the feast, if you would like to scope out some of the food.

Worry not… you’ll be seeing more of them since I’m documenting Katie & Allan’s epicurean wedding at the Ashby Inn in a few weeks time. Cannot wait!
