Recently Tucker’s contacted me to schedule a shoot of their entire menu because of an upcoming website redesign. This new design will include photos of pretty much all of their items, and I was happy to help them out! I worked with Tucker’s a couple of times in the past. First, on a little shoot for a 2015 feature in Kearsarge Magazine, and then again for some promotional photos. This was back when they only had three locations. Since then, their brand has certainly increased in size and presence over the past few years, to include winning so many Best of New Hampshire awards!
In fact, this shoot included (by my best count) 72 menu items. It was a surprising amount of work! As someone who is accustomed to shooting long, hot 8 hour wedding days on my feet, this food shoot was no slouch and sent me home to take a nap! But that’s ok. Tucker’s staff work so hard and they deserve beautiful photos to show off the talent and hard work. The first day of photography covered the majority of the menu, but then I went back for a quick second day to photograph 9 items for the upcoming fall seasonal menu.
The full menu shoot included the entire breakfast menu plus sides, as well as the whole lunch menu. Their sandwiches, wraps, and salads are all so fresh and colorful. They look delicious!
Afterward, I went back on a second day to do a quick shoot of their fall menu items, since the website will be launching in the fall. The fall menu of course isn’t out yet, but their team put together a sneak peek for me to photograph.
Many restaurants use Toast for their online ordering platform, and this is another great way to showcase photos from a menu shoot! How amazing that Tucker’s is able to provide a photo for nearly everything available for take out. Not to mention, it looks GREAT.
Which Tucker’s location is your favorite? I used to love the Hooksett restaurant because they have a drive thru window (which is awesome), but since the Bedford location opened, that one is definitely my favorite. It’s the closest to me by far, and it’s super easy in and out for parking and pickup.
