Prime rib story for the New York Times

In today’s Food section of the New York Times I photographed a few of the examples of restaurants serving prime rib, including the lead image. I photographed both at Burger & Barrel and Mission Chinese Food. If you’re into prime rib as a cut of steak I think you’d be pretty pleased with either place and their offering.

This was the lead image shot at Burger & Barrel of their prime rib with all the sides and sauces.

Beautiful Mehndi Designs - Aww Rib, Umm yeah, that’s what a real treat looks like.

Cosme, New York

One of my favorite meals of 2014 was at Cosme, a beautiful new Mexican restaurant in New York City. I had dinner here once and was really impressed from the fresh crudo dishes we had to the meticulous made tortillas. The duck carnitas presented here was photographed for the review that you can see here on Eater. I’m excited to try this place again and definitely would love to go photograph there again.

Looking forward to 2015

I realized the other day that I haven’t been using this website very much lately. Over the past 2 years I’ve really been focusing my energy on food photography and have in turn been booking less weddings and referring them to other photographers. I haven’t taken any weddings for 2015 but who knows, I’m not opposed to doing the right one when something cool comes along (anyone getting married someplace like Bali feel free to hit me up!). But I figured I should mention my food photography here more often since I’ve had this blog for a few years now and I never use it. You can see a lot of what I’ve been photographing the past year and see some articles about me on

I don’t want to remove all these wedding images I’ve made through the years so until I figure out a solution I’m going to keep this blog in tact and you can scroll through images below to see mostly wedding work over the past few years. Maybe I will post some new food posts when I can here.  I really enjoyed all those weddings I photographed and working with all of these beautiful couples.

I’ve been having a great ride this year meeting a ton of new people through the photography world. If you know me personally you know I’m a bit obsessed right now with my @danielkrieger instagram. That’s where you can see what I’m up to both in my travels and photography. The community of talented, driven, enthusiastic people using this instagram tool is amazing. I feel that I’m currently making some of my best images using my iPhone and posting to instagram. In 2014 I saw an image I photographed on the cover of the dining section of the New York Times that I took with my phone.. that seems crazy to me but I love it!

I’ve also have a new found love for my girl Lady J. She’s such an amazing talent and has taught me more than anyone I know. Here’s a few random food photos from shoots this year and I’m excited to see what 2015 holds.

Film wedding portraits

One of my favorite things to do at a wedding is to use my Hasselblad, an older manual film camera which shoots medium format 6x6cm film. There’s a quality to the images it produces that makes me (and my clients) happy. I love the fact you really need to take your time framing, metering, and manually focusing on your subject. I of course love my digital cameras but the chance to shoot a few frames with a film camera is something I’ve always enjoyed. Here’s a couple images from a truly beautiful wedding I recently photographed in Connecticut.

Instagram wedding photography

For anyone who checks my wedding website here, you might have noticed that I haven’t updated in a long long time. I’ve been very busy traveling and photographing a lot of food recently, working on cookbooks and shooting for several food based publications (such as Bon Ap and Food&Wine). I’m still photographing a good amount of weddings especially with the summer season approaching. I’ve been dabbling with instagram a lot recently and you can see more of my work through my account @danielkrieger

This specific image was shot with my iPhone last week (as all of my work featured on my instagram account is). Amy looked amazing with her vintage style dress and veil at her Brooklyn wedding at the Liberty Warehouse.
