Gordon Biersch Brewery by Jimena Peck

One of the perks of being a Food Photographer is the opportunity to work on a variety of incredible foodie teams. So when the ladies at CraftWorks reached out to me about taking some pictures for one of their restaurants, I was super excited. Their German pub style restaurant, Gordon Biersch, needed its images revamped. Myself and a wonderful team of stylists set out to capture its modern, yet relaxed vibe. Situated in Broomfield, Colorado, it resides in the mecca of craft beer and good company. I felt right at home.

Gordon Biersch prides itself on its beers and dishes made from scratch, as well as its cozy and friendly atmosphere.Their award winning brewery is visible right from the bar. It features German Lagers brewed according to the German Purity Law of 1516. They apply the same amount of scrumptious care to their cuisine, which made for dazzling photographs.

It was such a blast working alongside the talented stylists. Elizabeth Hawkins, a food stylist, was able to showcase the amazing textures and flavours through her magic touch. Tina Gill, a wardrobe and prop stylist, helped me capture the light-hearted crowd and Colorado’s unique spirit. I could not have pulled off these images without the help of these lovely ladies.

Collaborating with CraftWorks was such a pleasure. As a marketing agency, they own and operate dozens of restaurants. This does not keep them from being super down to earth and supportive. Helping them take Gordon Biersch’s style and presentation in a new direction was really exciting. With 35 restaurants operating in the US, Gordon Biersch upholds its reputation for superior beer, great food, and good times. I believe the team and I did an amazing job of capturing it.

A huge thanks to everyone I had the privilege of collaborating with!

Peaceful Pad - Vail Interior Design Photography

There is nothing better than settling into a cozy mountain home after a long day skiing or playing outside. The mountain home vibe has been taken to the next level by Kelly and her interior design company. PeacefulPad is an online interior design firm located in Vail, CO.

Kelly has curated an amazing online store where you can purchase items to revamp your home. Products from companies such as Jivaapoha, an Ayurvedic home and beauty store, are available on her site. In addition to her online firm, she has expanded her services for those who would like their homes designed and furnished in Vail.

I had the chance to spend the whole day with Kelly, and photograph one of her projects in town. The home I photographed was mesmerising. The style was both modern yet rustic, classy yet cozy. She has an amazing eye for vintage design. Peaceful Pad is a lifestyle. It entails creating a home that is both aesthetically appealing and zen. Kelly embodies her vision in all aspects of her life- from being a mother to a badass business woman.

As a Denver-based photographer, I am thrilled to have mountain towns so accessible. They characterise the elements of thrill and comfort within Colorado culture. I’m looking forward to seeing what else is in store for Peaceful Pad!
