It’s not just about the food, right?

It’s about the experience. The ingredients. The presentation. The brand you’re building.

The B Edit specializes in commercial and editorial food and lifestyle photography that goes below surface level, exploring how we can capture and share the story that matters to you and your audience.

In a sentence: we give your brand a photographic reality that lives up to the real deal.

“Moriah is a true professional. She was so prompt and upfront in her communication. She took beautiful pictures and provided them to me with a quick turn around. She gave us the variety we were looking for and I will definitely be working with her again soon!”

Photography that’s as thoughtful as you.

The B Edit was founded by Moriah Sawtelle, a New York based food photographer and cookbook author. Moriah lives and breathes business and branding, but she also knows what it’s like to want to build something you’re passionate about that brings a little more light into the world. She also knows that modern business requires strong relationships, excellent creative, and forward-thinking communications.

Moriah started the B Edit to help food and hospitality brands give their labors of love a creative reality that does them justice and leads to longevity.
