I recently made cookies for a very special bride-to-be. She and her fiancé are both amazing artists and all-around fantastic human beings. The benefit of making cookies for artists is that they turn cookies into art.
The photographs on this post are by the incomparable Joe Charles. You can check out his other work here: http://joe-charles.com
When I photograph cookies for this blog, I lay the cookies on my counter, on a cutting board, or on a piece of paper and start snapping pictures with my phone.
To be sure, the camera on my iPhone 6 is a big upgrade from my old phone. But I am not a professional photographer, my phone is really not a camera, and the chandelier in my dining room is probably subpar lighting.
When I initially learned that he was photographing the cookies, I planned to write a post about the cookies, just illustrated with better pictures. Instead, I’m posting about the photographs because they are so stunning. Check out these amazing photographs:
