Edible Flowers, Delicious Photographs

By // May 3, 2013 // Posted in Camera & Lens, Photography, Rangefinder

At Rangefinder, we like to check in with our Rising Stars of Wedding Photography throughout the year to see what they’re up to. Miana Jun, who was honored among the group in 2012, has photographed the images for a lovely book just released last month, titled Cooking with Flowers.

Jun says of working on the book,”It was a dream to work on this project because the book is a combination of two things that I hold dear to me: The beauty of nature and delicious food. Capturing the essence of each dish and then also having the chance to taste every flower and almost every recipe was a huge contributing factor to my excitement and inspiration while working on the book. I am thrilled that this book can bring the unique and irreplaceable taste of edible flowers into people’s lives and cooking.”

The 192-page hardcover, published by Quirk Books, features 100 flower-filled recipes written by Miche Bacher, alongside Jun’s naturally-lit images of cakes, cookies, pies and all the flora that go into them. Not only a great side project for a wedding shooter, but an excellent way to show your expertise in nailing detail shots.
